Hi Ekta, for PSU jobs, candidates are majorly selected on the basis of marks scored in GATE exam. However, some PSU's also conduct their own entrance examination followed by an interview which generally includes general awareness and knowledge portion along with a part of technical knowledge in the concerned subject. Thus, it would be advised to score well in GATE to avoid the hustle.
