The application date for the GATE 2020 application has been extended again. Earlier the last date to register for the GATE exam was extended by IIT-Delhi from September 24 to September 26 because the website went unresponsive on the last day. Now, the last date has been extended again for the same reason.
Candidates who fulfill the eligibility for the GATE 2020 can apply for the same until September 28, 2019.
A notice on the official GATE 2020 websites says, "Because of heavy traffic load in the GATE application portal, the last date of application with normal fees has been extended up to 28th September."
The last date to apply for GATE 2020 with late fee is still October 1, 2019.
Candidates who miss the first deadline for the GATE 2020 application can still apply for the exam until October 1, 2019, with an increased fee. Under these circumstances, the application fee for the SC/ST/PwD/Female candidates will go up from Rs. 750 to Rs. 1250 and for all other candidates, the application fee will increase from Rs. 1500 to Rs. 2000.
