Frequently Asked Questions


GATAEROSPACEFORUM is an initiative by alumni of IISc for helping students in grasping the fundamental concepts in Aerospace engineering. It was started by providing Online test series and also platform for Discussing doubts and Aerospace topics at our discussion forum( later shifted to facebook), which is already joined by more than 9200 aerospace students.

From past eight years, GATAEROSPACEFORUM provide classroom coaching at (Delhi, Hyderabad, Chennai and Bangalore), and Correspondence Books, along with Online Test series in Aerospace Engineering for GATE -2018/19. Registered students can take benefit of this which will help them in making a sound bedrock on which they can build their successful career either by going in higher studies or choosing professional life.

Why Online Tests like what is offering by GATAEROSPACEFORUM ?

The time is changing very rapidly and anybody who was having enough time in past is not getting any time due to sudden increase in number of activities you perform. Thus these days you don't have any time to waste as you can use that time in any productive work. Hence online tests will save your lot of time and provide you an opportunity to give the exams from your home itself at any convenient and suitable timing. You can also view your results and discuss the things at any point of time.

These days many well known exams like GATE, CAT, GRE, TOEFL.. etc. are online or moving toward that, thus these online tests will give you enough practice for those exams when you will give the test in the same environment.

How to join for discussion forum?

Discussion is active on facebook at www.facebook.com/groups/gateaerospace . You can join this anytime. If any problem, then can contact us at gatetestseries@gmail.com .

Why should I give GATE exam?

There are number of reasons to take up GATE. Few of them are listed below:

  • To pursue master's degree in Engg. program in one of the leading and premier institutes of the country.
  • Masters degree will be required if you want to pursue your career in the research or education field. It will also help you in the better understanding of fundamental concepts of various subjects .
  • GATE qualified candidates are also eligible for the award of Junior Research Fellowship in CSIR Laboratories and CSIR sponsored projects.
  • Some government organizations like BARC,ONGC etc. recognize GATE exam and recruit people based on GATE qualification.
  • Doctoral positions (Ph.D) in many of the foreign universities are offered based on the GATE percentile.

What is the pattern of GATE(AE) exam?

GATE 2014 pattern was of objective type with a total of 65 questions to be answered in 3 hours.

Is GATEAEROSPACEFORUM All India Test Series enough for the preparation?

This test series consists of 48 online test papers. It means more than 2800 competitive questions and their keys. It covers the whole syllabus in depth .

First 28 exams cover the topics in detail. We emphasized more on Flight Stability, Orbital Mechanics, Viscous Flows, Boundary Layers, Propulsion, Aircraft Structure, Wind tunnel Testing, and Vortex Dynamics which are very important areas from research point of view as well.

So if people say this is just a test series and not a correspondence material then take a PAUSE and RETHINK over it . More than 2800 questions with your practical score and review options to check.AND when we add the guidance in discussion group by the faculties who have completed Masters from IITs/IISc who are, at present, either in the Industry or pursuing their Phd from some of the top universities in the world in similar areas, it will surely make a difference. Then a few thousand rupees a year is tiny investment to the Career.

How will I get the GATEAEROSPACEFORUM India Test Series question papers?

Question papers are in online format and will be emailed you the links of those in your email ID after successful registration.

How can I registered for the GATEAEROSPACEFORUM Test Series?

You will have to fill and send the Offline Registration form (available on download page) or otherwise Submit the Online Registration form( available on registration page) with necessary attachments and the Fees applicable to you (i.e. Individual or You are a Group of Students ) as per the given modes of payment (see registration procedure for modes of payment in registration tab) (Note: If confused, Please contact us before sending the Registration form and Fees).

Is there any deadline for the GATEAEROSPACEFORUM Test Series Registration?

No deadlines, You can register anytime, anyday. The online tests will be available on the same day of registration or the next day in your email ID.

Should I study for an Aerospace degree?

Aerospace is full of Mathematics and Physics. If you love these subjects then you are eligible for it. Now as you are eligible then We feel personally in research level both Aerospace/Mechanical and related branches serve the same purpose no matter what course who have done in your undergrad. People normally switch from one branch to other at each degree or completion of some research period. So If you are willing to be in mechanical stuff then Aerospace is also a great idea. Any how India need Aeronautical/Aerospace Engineer in future specially.

What is the eligibility criteria for GATE Examination?
How the GATE score is awarded?
Who can apply for Aerospace Engineering course in IISc or IITs?

For all of these questions, Please check any IITs/IISc website for latest updates or otherwise you can visit our Gate Examination tab.
