GATE 2020 Admit Card

The admit card will be available on the GOAPS portal of GATE. No printed copy of the admit cards will be issued to the candidates. "No request for any changes in the centre or date/time specified in the admit card will be entertained. Similarly, this being an examination body with certain constraints, candidates needing very special or specific facility for the examination may not be entertained. Hence, candidates are requested to adhere to the facilities that are possible within the ambit and resources of GATE Examination Body," reads the GATE notice.

The photograph on the admit card and that in the valid photo identity document should match with the appearance of the candidate on the day of examination. To ensure this, print the admit card on an A4 sized paper using a laser printer, preferably a color printer, the notice adds.
