Sir, Im a biotechnology graduate and I want to do my MS . Please tell which exam would better to pursue the same, GATE or GRE?

Mayank Chowdhary 22nd Jun, 2020


If we think on the basis of future prospects and importance then GRE is better than GATE

Here is the explanation

1.) GRE is comparatively easy exam which requires at least 4-5 months and it is globally accepted.

2.) GRE score is valid for 5 years and many abroad universities take into account GRE score.

3.) If you decide to take admission in abroad then do go for GRE.

4.) Being a biotechnology graduate the scope in abroad is good and hence give it a try

5.) It is less competitive and it requires around 25k -30 k for preparation.

Here is the link of GRE exam details

Thank you and all the best


i got 49 score in pte can i apply for australia

Shivang Dubey 21st Jun, 2020

Hey Mohit

Pearson Test of English (PTE) Academic is conducted for candidates willing to pursue their education abroad especially Australia.

There is no cutoff marks in PTE but there is a desired score above which universities prefer students for admission. And that desired score is around 55-60 since past years, and with 65+ you get higher points in your application. With 49 score, chances of acceptance are less but not nil, so you may apply to universities where acceptance on low score is valid.

For further doubts, ask us. For more information; PTE 2020

rajaman9300 Student Expert 21st Jun, 2020

You need a minimum marks of 60 to apply for Australian skilled immigration program.

If you score above 50 and less than 65 then you will be eligible to apply for Australian PR, but this score doesn’t give you any points, you will secure competent English which is the minimal English language criteria to apply. Above 50 in PTE gives ‘zero’ points for PR points tally. score of 65 and above, less than 79 gives you 10 points.

priyaankasarkar Student Expert 16th Jun, 2020

Vatsal, you haven't mentioned what you want to study abroad. But apart from your Academic profile, you should also have a strong Statement of Purpose and References by which the University can understand your passion for studying in their Institution. Of course there will be questions regarding the academic performance but Candidates with multiple attempts usually are considered in Universities abroad.


What is the score required in GRE and TOEFL for Masters in Data science in Carnegie Mellon university?

Aastha jain 14th Jun, 2020


There is no definite cutoff score. There is no assurance of getting an admit from CMU even if a student has a perfect score of 340. The decision depends on a variety of factors. A GRE score above 325 would be a decent bet for CMU. However, the GRE score needs to be complemented by a balanced profile, strong letters of recommendation and a well-written SOP

A good CGPA, relevant research projects and publications, internships, previous academic records, and work experience also contributes greatly.

As far as TOEFL is concerned, even the bare minimum should be enough. It is only a proof of your knowledge  in English.

Hope this helps!

IELTS is a mandatory test if you are planning to migrate to a country for employment or studies. If you are migrating to work abroad, IELTS is sufficient. But, migrating students who have cleared the SAT also need to have IELTS scores to prove their English language proficiency.
