GATE 2022 Exam Date: Should the GATE be Rescheduled? Students say yes, but IIT Kharagpur isn’t interested.

IIT Kharagpur has not modified the GATE 2022 Exam Date. Students have resorted to social media to request a postponement due to COVID. But the Institute is not interested. Should the GATE test be rescheduled? Cast your vote in the Poll. Even after much speculation of a postponement due to COVID, the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering, GATE 2022 Exam Date has remained constant. So far, IIT Kharagpur has made it plain that the Institute is not interested in postponing the exam. As things worsen, the issue remains: Should the GATE Exam be postponed? 

The GATE 2022 test will be held on February 5, 6, 12, and 13, 2022, at various exam centers around the country. When IIT KGP delayed the delivery of the GATE admission card, it was expected that the test would be postponed for enormous COVID surge.

Key Highlights:

  • IIT Kharagpur has left the GATE 2022 Exam Dates unaltered and has fixed them for February 5, 6, 12, and 13, 2022.
  • Candidates are outraged and have resorted to social media to demand that the exam must have to be postponed due to COVID.
  • Should the GATE be rescheduled? Take the Poll now to cast your vote.

However, when the GATE admission card was announced and the exam dates remained unchanged, things altered, or as some could argue, remained the same. Many applicants were prompted to go to social media to urge that the exam be postponed.

GATE 2022 Exam Date: Unchanged – What do candidates want? 

Many students are upset because the GATE exam dates have not been alerted. At this time, hashtags such as #RescheduleGATE2022, #Postponegate2022 are trending on social media. And they are being used by students who attempt to make their views heard by IIT Kharagpur.

Their major demand is for the exam to be postponed until the end of February or at the beginning of March 2022. The third wave of Covid-19 would peak in the first week of February 2022. And IIT Kharagpur has not even raised the number of exam centers.  

Should the GATE 2022 Exam be rescheduled? It’s time to take the poll and vote.

GATE 2022 exam postponement is now only a desire, not a reality. Students are requesting a delay, but IIT Kharagpur has left the dates unchanged. IIT Kharagpur has made no formal remark on the matter. The exam delay is improbable at this moment, as the COVID third wave predicted timetable varies from state to state.

Furthermore, the applicants who want to take the GATE test should be either fully vaccinated or have had at least one vaccination. Even though there has been no formal statement from IIT KGP, the Institute vs Students tsunami has arrived.
