The exam conducting authority will release the qualifying cutoffs for all the GATE papers once the GATE 2020 is out. But the GATE participating institutes will have their own admission cutoff. Not only that, but also the GATE score is considered by many Public Sector Undertakings for the recruitment of graduate engineers.
