Edusure – Best MA Economics Entrance Coaching in India

The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is a nationwide exam that focuses on evaluating candidates’ complete knowledge of a range of undergraduate engineering, technology, architecture, science, and business courses for admission into Master’s Programs (M.A in Economics included), recruitment in PSUs, and other career choices. The Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur is hosting GATE 2023, a computer-based test (CBT). On behalf of the National Coordination Board – GATE, Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Education (MoE), and Government of India, the exam will be administered by IISc Bangalore and seven IITs (IIT Bombay, IIT Delhi, IIT Guwahati, IIT Kanpur, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Madras, and IIT Roorkee) (GoI). A few years ago, in 2021, GATE Economics was launched with the introduction of two new papers: Humanities & Social Sciences (XH) and Environmental Science & Engineering (ES). Starting this year, IIT Madras is taking admission to its MSc Economics course through GATE. GATE Economics is becoming increasingly popular, such as IIT JAM Economics, not only among students with an economics background but also among students without an economics background.
