IIT Madras is going to conduct **Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering in Statistics**
subject from this year onwards. Gate is going to be conducted on 02, 03, 09 and 10 February, 2019
and in two sessions: Forenoon- 09:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. and Afternoon- 02:00 P.M. to 05:00 P.M. The
Gate in Statistics is for those students who want to pursue Master and Doctoral Degree from IITs as
well as various Public Sector Units consider Gate score of Candidates for recruitment.
**Calculus, Linear Algebra, Probability, Stochastic Processes, Inference, Regression Analysis,
Multivariate Analysis**, and **Design of Experiments** are important topics
that will form the basis of the exam. The exam will be of 3 hours will various multiple choice
questions as well as numerical answer type questions, making a total of around 65 questions.
**Deep Institute** is the premier institute for providing best guidance and coaching
for Gate Statistics by providing a student friendly environment of teaching and a good number of
assignments on per class basis as well as an intensified test series for complete and best
preparation. The detailed syllabus of Gate Statistics Exam is given below:
