The results for the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE ) 2014, released on Friday, saw Ankit Goyal, an engineering graduate from Bangalore, topping the list.
The IIT graduate who is also the all-India topper in electrical engineering however is not keen on pursuing a post-graduate course in one of the country's top institutes, said a newspaper report.
Goyal is presently working as an associate engineer at Qualcomm, a mobile technology company in Bangalore.
Being an alumnus of IIT, the top technical institute no longer lures him.
Ankit completed his B. Tech in electrical engineering at IIT Indore in 2013. Ankit is happy with his present job and believes doing a PG from an IIT will bring no significant change in his career, as the same companies visit the institutes for recruitment, said the report.
Ankit said he devoted three hours every day to prepare for GATE after nine hours being at office. He also mentioned he ranked eighth in the same exam last year but wanted to top the exam and took it again this year.
The Gate 2014 results disappointed many candidates as only 16.84 per cent of the appeared candidates successfully cleared the exam. Candidates who managed to meet the qualifying marks set by the GATE 2014 Committee will receive score cards and results through mail.
