Do we have to apply for IITs before our GATE results are declared?
Last Date to Apply for Various Programme at IISC Banglore is 23rd March 2017 i.e before result declaration.
In 2016 after the declaration of Gate results within a week the IISC closed the application submission, they opened the link far before the GATE results.
All the IIT’s opens their form after a week of announcement of GATE result. So you will get ample time to apply to each institute.
These are the DATES of last year’s closing date of each institute.
In 2016 Gate result was announced on 19th march.
You must apply for IISC for Ms or dual degree Ms+ PHd also apart from Mtech
For that you need to fill 2 different forms.
Best of luck
