If I want to get a direct job after GATE at PSU, how much rank should I get?

Expect ! Expect !

First of all, no PSU hires directly, even if you're getting Air 1. You have to go through GD and then PI. To enter the PSU, you must be below the 200 range. But for IOCL. There is no GD round there that I know of.

Here are the links:

  • What is the minimum required rank in GATE to get a job at any PSU?
  • What GATE rank is required to enter PSU as ONGC and IOCL?
  • Engineering Graduate Aptitude Test - GATE
  • How many grades do I need to get on the GATE to get a government job?

I hope that helps .

Sorry for any grammar mistakes.

And good luck.

Hi Maithlee, Thanks for A2A.

I was not selected on any power supply because I did not score as good on my GATE. However, I did research through Quora and found some questions and links that might be of help to you.

Here are the links:

  • What is the minimum required rank in GATE to get a job at any PSU?
  • What GATE rank is required to enter PSU as ONGC and IOCL?

There is no direct job not even for the first classified. You must go through the selection process for the respective PSUs. However, power supply units like IOCL give a heavy weight (85%) to the GATE score. So if you get a 2-digit range, your chances are very good.

It depends on your branch. Generally less than 300 will get the job on good power supplies and there is also a chance that less than 500. If you really want to be in a complete safe zone below 100 is the requirement.

Gate is a common exam / test for many PSUs. So, considering all the requirements in number for all the PSUs, the rank below 1000 will have the opportunity to enter any of the PSUs

Here in this answer, I have tried to provide full details about the ONGC AEE interview process through the GATE exam and how I prepared for the AEE (Reservoir) interview which helped me secure the top spot on the Merit List final for AEE (Reservoir) publication via GATE 2018.

BACKGROUND

After my first year of M.Tech PE at IIT (ISM), Dhanbad finished, I was at ONGC Ankleshwar, Gujarat for mandatory internship / training at the end of the first year. It was scheduled from 05/07/18 to 06/06/18. On 05/15/18, I received my Interview Call Letter for AEE (Reservoir) after completing my CV (your call letter is generated only after completing the CV and uploading the necessary documents on the ONGC portal) . The date of my interview was 05/28/18, that is, the start date of the interviews themselves and that of the report at 8:30 AM. It felt good because my interview would end early and then I could relax, but at the same time I had less time for interview preparation and the internship was an added problem. So I said goodbye to the internship and came home on 05/17/18.

DAY BEFORE THE INTERVIEW - 05/27/18

It was 7:30 PM, I was still studying the GATE syllabus, questions could be asked from anywhere, so I was trying to cover every detail. He hadn't even thought about HR questions. I was reading a newspaper regularly so I knew current affairs and for standard HR questions I decided I would tell the truth rather than ready-made answers so I didn't need any preparation or have the time for it. After finishing the GATE study program, I slept at 12:30 AM.

INTERVIEW DAY - 05/28/18

I woke up at 5:30 AM, lack of sleep had left me groggy. It was the same feeling I had on the day of the GATE test, but somehow I was able to stay calm and composed that day and secure a good rank. I thought that today I also have to do the exact same thing. Fortunately, the place i.e Scope Minar, Laxmi Nagar, Delhi, was not far from my home. The ONGC interview day procedures begin with a human resources presentation followed by document verification and finally the interview. As soon as I walked into the HR presentation room, the ONGC Anthem was heard. I saw the human resources person, he was the same guy I spoke to during the PDPU campus placements, that is, Shri Ajay Chauhan.

The arrangements were excellent, the document verification went smoothly and then people were called in groups of 3 for the interview. My serial number was 14 years old, so I had some time before my interview. Meanwhile, I left the waiting room and tried to relax. According to me, one should refrain from discussing the questions asked of other boys as it creates unnecessary anxiety. After a long 3 hour wait, they called me for my interview at 12:30 PM. We were a batch of 3 and I was the third person. The first boy came out after 20 minutes. Now it was lunchtime, the human resources person asked each panel if they should tell the students waiting outside to go to lunch and that their interview would take place after lunch, almost all the panels said yes. I was delighted that nothing feels better than extra time right before an interview. But,

So I was finally the last candidate to be interviewed just before lunch. I walked in at 1:10 PM and now all the other panel rooms were empty.

THE INTERVIEW

As soon as I walked in, I saw 6-7 panel members there. I wished them good afternoon and then I stood near the door. The president (I suppose because of his age and because he was sitting in the center of everything) said: "Aeye Vajpayeeji aap khade kyu he, aeye betheye", that is, Vajpayeeji come in, why are you standing, come and sit?

Of all the few interviews I've ever had, they all started out the same way. Interviewers start addressing me as "Vajpayeeji"

Now I sat down and saw the faces of all the interviewers, there was a woman, they all looked to be between 50 and 60 years old and they were all smiling. They all had laptops with them where they had my CV.

The president began,

"So you have published an SPE article in some IPTC ..."

I said, "Yes sir, I presented at the 10th International Petroleum Technology Conference in 2016, held in Thailand" (I avoided saying Bangkok)

Another member said:

"He has also published in a World Renewables Congress ..."

I said, "Yes sir, I presented this at the 15th World Renewable Energy Congress in 2016, held in Indonesia."

The curve of his smile increased.

President,

“Well done son, besides that you have also presented in some SAGSC ..., can you tell us about your research?

I said, “Yes sir, I also presented at the 2nd South Asian Geosciences Student Conference in 2016, held in Indonesia. My research focused on trying to generate electricity using co-produced oilfield brine that is considered wasteful, especially in mature oilfields, where we generate large amounts of brine along with oil production. "

There was a discussion about the details of the investigation that followed.

President,

"So you were on a world tour in 2016"

I said,

"Not really sir, more like a South Asian tour"

They all started laughing. Inside I was happy because I thought I had created a good first impression. Throughout all of this, I frequently looked at the lady. I was deeply absorbed in reading my CV and I was also smiling a lot. I was wondering what is in my CV that makes her smile so much. I thought maybe my hobby was watching Special Forces movies.

President

"So you don't have any previous relationship with ONGC, for example, intern or some project?"

I said, "No sir, my intern was at Reliance CBM Operations in Shahdol, MP"

(CBM stands for Coal Bed Methane and is an unconventional hydrocarbon source that is considered a clean fuel, i.e. zero CO2 or H2S emissions when burned as it is primarily CH4).

Hearing CBM, he said "well, very well, sir will be very happy about this" (pointing to a panel member sitting in the far right corner)

I turned to him and he said, “Well, you did your internship at Reliance's CBM block in Sohagpur. What year was it?

I said, "2016 sir"

President,

“Ok son, let's start with your interview. We will not ask you anything about ONGC since you are from PDPU, we assume that you already know everything about ONGC and its operations, furthermore it is said that Gujarat is floating on oil ”.

I said, "Yes sir, I know most of the things about ONGC." He, "I believe you."

He asked his neighbor member to start asking questions. From now on it was a kind of rapid fire round. This member started asking questions about reservoir engineering as it was my favorite area that he answered right away and without a second threw the next question.

Q1 - What are the different types of tank drives?

Answer: I started to explain the different drive mechanisms. He stopped me and asked me to list the different ones. I did. Then he asked me which one has the highest recovery efficiency in theory. I said, "water drive". He said, "No, I asked you theoretically." I said, "Gravity drain." Was pleased.

Q2 - What do you mean by my reservoir management? How do we carry out Reservoir Management?

Answer: Mr. Shyamal Bhattacharya {Ex. The Director (Operations) ONGC Videsh Ltd} taught us the Reservoir Management course at IIT (ISM) Dhanbad. I recited their exact class lines. He was impressed.

Q3: What are the different gas well testing methods? List all and explain how you will find AOF using modified isochronous test data.

Q4 - How will you find the reservoir pressure in the field?

Q5 - What is the phase diagram? Draw the phase diagram of the volatile oil reservoir and explain Cricondentherm and the critical pressure on the diagram.

Answer: I did. Then he asked me about the compressibility factor of the gas, that is, Z and how it is. I told him using Pseudo Pressure and Temperature Reduction and Standing Plot.

Q6 - Out of nowhere, you asked me to define what is a mole?

Q7 - What is the P / Z graph for a gas tank? Write the material balance equation for a gas tank.

Answer: It was easy for me. Then he asked me to tell him the plots with which we found the strength of an aquifer, that is, the Campbell and Cole plots. He asked me to draw and explain these plots. I did.

Q8 - What are the standard PVT tests to find oil properties?

Now suddenly another panel member asked:

"So you can see that you know everything about the Engg reservoir, can you tell me how we select the choke sizes?"

Now this was difficult as the choke selection is included in Production Engineering. Still, I tried to answer that, “The wellhead choke controls the surface pressure and production rate of a well and depending on these we will select the choke size.

He was not satisfied and asked, "No, how do we select whether the choke size will be 32, 48, etc. 1/64 inch?"

Suddenly I remembered something, "Sir, we have Beggs and Gilbert correlations, depending on the head pressure and the flow rate, we can select the size of the choke."

He seemed satisfied.

Now the chairman asked the member sitting on the far right to ask questions. He was a serious person with no smile on his face.

Now the most interesting part of the interview begins.

He said, "So you've done your internship at Reliance CBM, I hope you get to know CBM operations."

I said confidently, "Yes sir, I know"

Q1 - Tell me the most unique thing about any CBM operation that is very important to CBM.

Answer: I was very confident in my knowledge of CBM. I said "Production of coal fines and production of sand." He said, "No, it's something else." There was silence in the room for 20 seconds, I was thinking what the answer might be, then I mumbled “Cleats sir”. The president exclaimed, "Yes, of course it is." But the serious member said again: "No, tell me something like tacos but something different." I said, "patency, sir." He was still not ready to accept the answer and said, "It's the permeability, but tell me, what is the unique permeability of carbon in Reliance CBM carbon in MP?"

Instead of stammering something, I honestly agreed, "I don't know, sir." He said that "Reliance claims they have the highest carbon permeability in India."

Now, it was a Deja Vu moment for me.

Suddenly I remembered that this panel member was also present at my ONGC campus placement interview at PDPU in 2016. During my ONGC campus placement interview as well, I was able to answer most of the technical questions but was unable to answer questions related to my CBM internship as all the questions were more factual and geology based and he was the same person who asked me these questions. Not surprisingly, I was not selected in my ONGC campus interview at PDPU.

Now, I became cautious. He couldn't allow the same thing to happen again. I realized, initially, that he liked me doing my internship at RIL CBM because he had experience in CBM himself.

Q2 - What is the current Reliance CBM gas flow rate in PM?

Answer: I was surprised. How could anyone know such factual things other than that the flow rate keeps changing frequently? I accepted, "I don't know sir." Said, "Okay, what was the flow rate during your internship time?" I said, “Sir, during my internship development activity was still going on and commercial production had not started. So there was no flow during my time. "

There was no expression on his face. I thought I had answered wrong. My nervousness began to build as I watched the same thing happen to me again. The smile on my face and on the faces of all the interviewers had disappeared. I got anxious and worried, but still, I tried to stay calm and composed.

Q3 - Tell me, how many fields are there in the Reliance CBM operations in Shahdol?

Answer: During my entire internship, I had not heard of any special name given to any field. I said, “Sir, I read that there are CBM fields in sohagpur, but during my time there were 2 parts of the block, Sohagpur West SW and Sohagpur East SE and I worked on wells in the SW part.

Once again, I wasn't sure of my answer and, as before, there was no expression on his face. I couldn't guess if my answer was right or wrong.

Q4 - Tell me what formation is CBM in the Reliance Sohagpur block?

Answer: Silence in the room again for 15 seconds, I was thinking. I said: "Raniganj and Barakar"

The female member said, “Thank you Mudit, that was it. Now you can go "

I wanted to thank you for saving me from this difficult situation as I was unsure of any of my CBM answers.

I thanked everyone, pushed the chair inside, and literally ran out of the room.

I told myself that you've screwed up again. Even after securing AIR 2, you will not be selected in ONGC. You should be ashamed of yourself. The same thing that happened to me during my placement interview at the ONGC campus happened again, but today at least I was able to correctly answer all the technical questions (some were advanced level).

POST INTERVIEW

Every day after 05/28/18, I was thinking that maybe they wouldn't fail me and give me at least 9/15 points as it wasn't that bad, but they failed me before for the same thing. I thought to myself, if they fail me, I will come back better next time, but what better can be done than to get AIR 2, I would have to pass the exam, but if they respect my veracity and my knowledge of petroleum engineering and accept me, I will. I give my 100% for the improvement of this company.

OUTCOME

The last thing happened. I got a job at ONGC and ONGC got a dedicated employee.

Here is the ONGC AEE (Reservoir) result up to GATE 2018 that was released on 06/9/18.

Here is my Score Sheet for the AEE (Reservoir) post.

Thanks

4. BARC is not a PSU (Around 11 selected for OCES, 1 for DGFS) only interview
5. BBNL (It cannot be declared) It can be only interview
6. MECL (1 Gen, 1 Other Category) May be just an interview

In the selection of PSUs, 99% of the time it is relatively biased in the GATE range. Two reasons for this.
i) 85% weighting to the GATE range 15% for (GD + Interview)
ii) Better impression / perception due to its GATE range

There is a 1% chance of being selected if you have performed outstandingly in your interview, even if you have a GATE rank of around 100.

Please note that the following information always depends on
i) the number of vacancies
ii) the number of candidates who applied for these companies and their ranks. (if most of them have less rank, they might call you for an interview even with rank> 100)

For general:
if you get a GATE rank <100, you will most likely receive an interview call from all of these companies.
If it has range <30, 99.99% is selected.
If your rank is <10, 100% chance should be selected. (Remember this is a relative measure here. Reason: For example, there are 3 vacancies, 5 candidates might call 1: 5 means for 1 position. Therefore, 15 candidates assume they have ranks from 1 to 15 called for interview, even if you have a rank 4, it may or may not be selected, which is a rare and hypothetical case)
But in reality, this is the case.

For OBC or SC / ST or Disabled: It
is also relative if there are other candidates in your category who scored better than yours and applied to that company.
In GATE 2015 there is a candidate with GATE rank 70 with OBC category who obtained IOCL, PGCIL.
There are situations where even with the GATE 1000 range it was also selected.

BARC interview is different from other PSUs

So if you have a GATE range less than 50, there is a 99% chance of getting the job done on the power supply units.

OpImp. : - You will receive all PSU interview calls if your rating is below 250-300, but if you are exclusively preparing for the door (not s), be sure to stay in contact with the books and do not leave books behind. door, because most people leave study after door and destroy their interviews.

It is not important to receive an interview call from the PSU. getting it to become a final selection is more important.

Based on my experience of attending the PSU interview:

You will receive an interview call if your rank is below 300. (gen) (this year 280)

Now it depends on your interview skills to convert. This year, the last 280 rank was also selected and received a call, but many of the top finishers were rejected. Due to more weighting in the interview.

Ps: I am currently working on NTPC

IOCL:

Although the interview call is up to 1800 (gen.) But there is a zero selection above the 400 range. The weight in the gate range is high.

You can expect a selection if your rating is less than 200, but remember that “it all depends on the interview. They can reject even the best classified if the interview is bad "

ONGC:

The interview call depends on the department you chose and is cut off. The weight on the gate score is high.

Arriving in the production department, this year due to the preference of sk mondal, almost all of the high-ranking opted for production. Therefore, there was less chance of being selected if the rank was above 100 (although the rank 140 was selected because it obtained the highest score in the interview). The interview call was up to 300.

Make sure you fill in the correct department to get your selection.

  • Mechanic - This was Modt's second preferred department. This year, the call for interviews reached rank 400. But the final selection was up to rank 150 only even though the seats were almost 40. (max.)

For other departments, Mmo, cementing, the selection was up to 300 ranges.

Bpcl:

Only the interview matters. You will receive an interview call up to 1500. Gd, tech. Interview, HR interview are eliminatory. But zero weighting in the ranks.

Ps: the above ranks are only for mechanical branch and general category.

Edit: for more information. Refer to my blog STRATEGY

We can understand it step by step.

Step 1: The Gate exam is taken every year between the end of January and the first week of February.

Step 2: The last date to fill out the PSU application form is before the Gate exam and some vacancies arise after the results.

The results of step 3 are declared in mid-March.

Step 4: Now after Gate result declaration, Power Supply Units publish their short list for GD / PI based on Gate performance. Some can take directly on the basis of the Gate score like AAI, NHAI, etc.

Step 5: In the middle of the PSU calls, the shortlist for mtech interviews at IIT is also posted on the official IIT website

Paso 5: en medio de las llamadas de PSU, la lista corta para entrevistas de mtech en IIT también se publica en el sitio web oficial de IIT para aquellos que desean seguir una educación superior.

Step6 - after finishing GD/PI of each shortlisted candidates ,they publish results. HPCL gives the verdict of GD on the day of GD itself.

Step7 - If your score allows you to fall in the category of shortlisted candidates for GD/PI then you will have an amazing roller coaster ride with lots of experiences.

Step8 - then first list is published of selected candidates.some PSUs publish waiting list and some dont like IOCL.

Step 9 - after getting selected you will get information on your email address that when and where to join.

All in all it becomes an amazing ride if your score is very good that can fetch you one or more PSUs and if your score is on boundary then it may take even December to get you shortlisted in final list or you might not get selected.

PD - No pienses en los resultados y en el proceso de selección, solo enfócate en la preparación, el descanso es tu destino y trabajo duro.

¡¡Todo lo mejor!!

Déjame compartir mi experiencia. Vi mi resultado el 16 de marzo alrededor de las 4 de la tarde. Esperaba un puesto entre los 5 primeros ya que estaba obteniendo 97 puntos.

Securing rank 1 on any exam is really special. I was very happy to see the result. After writing GATE in 2013, I never thought I would appear in GATE again. But I guess you never know how things are going. It wasn't until 9 p.m., when I was easily called to verify my rank, that things began to change. Shortly after Made easy, CMD B Singh Sir called and invited me to make easy to congratulate and make a short promo video.

The excitement and hype lasted about a week

Let me share my experience. I saw my result on March 16 around 4 in the afternoon. I was hoping for a top 5 spot as I was getting 97 points.

Securing rank 1 on any exam is really special. I was very happy to see the result. After writing GATE in 2013, I never thought I would appear in GATE again. But I guess you never know how things are going. It wasn't until 9 p.m., when I was easily called to verify my rank, that things began to change. Shortly after Made easy, CMD B Singh Sir called and invited me to make easy to congratulate and make a short promo video.

The excitement and excitement lasted for about a week and then things started to normalize.

Things that change….

  1. Social media status: My Facebook account was flooded with friend requests, greeting messages and queries of future aspirants.
  2. You become an inspiration and role model for future aspirants.
  3. Students begin to recognise you and approach you saying, “you don’t know me, but we know you!…..”.
  4. Whosoever hears about your rank gets little impressed, even girls :p which is otherwise hard for mechanical guys.

As far as opportunities are considered, they are no different than anyone in Top 20 or 30. Only thing that will stand out is that you were the topper that year. Eventually like everyone else you’ll either be doing masters or joining a PSU.

I once read somewhere:

No one remembers any number, but NUMBER ONE!!

It really depends on the psu and the number of vaccancies in it. I will share my experience till now...

(I got AIR 123 in mechanical in Gate 2017.)

1) I got a call from bpcl and there I found a lot of students with a range close to 1300. So this program shows that they can call it even if it is anywhere above AIR 1500.

2) Now taking the example of other power supplies like BHEL. I don't know the rank, but when I saw him cut, he was qualified for the interview. So they may have called up to rank 123 only (for general).

3) For ONGC the cut changes depending on the position you choose. The cut is different to pierce

It really depends on the power source and the number of vaccines in it. I will share my experience so far ...

3) For ONGC the cut changes depending on the position you choose. The cut is different for drilling, mechanics, productions, etc.

4) Mi amigo (AIR 884) y yo recibimos una llamada de entrevista de IOCL. Entonces, pueden estar llamando a aquellos que están por debajo de 1000.

5) Now for BARC, there are two way you can get a call for interview. One is the Gate and other is BARC's own exam. I got selected on the basis of gate score. The cut off for gen was 824.

I will update as I get other psu calls.

Edit : Today I got mail from NTPC, the cut off marks and rank of which is given in screenshot below,
