The Graduate Record Examination or GRE is a standardized test that is an admissions requirement for many graduate schools in English speaking countries. It is created and administered by the Educational Testing Service and is similar in format and content to the SAT. It is a computer based Online Test. The percentile scored in this exam will decide your future in doing M.S in foreign nations.

The Test of English as a Foreign Language evaluates the potential success of an individual to use and understand Standard American English at a college level. It is required for non-native applicants at many English-speaking colleges and universities. A TOEFL score is valid for two years and then is deleted from the official database.

Conducted by one of seven Indian Institutes of Technology in rotation, Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an annual exam for admission to M.Tech and M.S. programmes in most engineering institutes in India. It is regarded as a benchmark test for engineering graduates in India .This examination is coordinated by a committee, comprising of Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore and seven Indian Institutes of Technology on behalf of the National Coordinating Board – GATE, Department of Education, and Government of India. The pattern and syllabus are usually based on a candidate’s B.Tech. Minimum eligibility for appearing in this exam is usuall a B.Tech, BE, B. Arch. or M.Sc.

Civil Engineers have good scope in Indian Engineering Service. Civil Engineers are required to build bridges, dams etc. Therefore IES exam is also conducted to recruit Civil Engineers for various government departments. Civil Engineers are required for various infrastructure projects. These projects are related to railways, defense etc. Therefore due to the requirement of Civil Engineers in various government departments, they are recruited through the IES entrance exam.

Some of the departments are
