GATE Preparation Tips, Techniques, Toppers Tricks

  • All of us know that “Practice is a key of success and practice makes man perfect”, so do the practice as much as possible.
  • Collect GATE Syllabus and exam pattern i.e. the structure of the question.
  • Study the syllabus pattern in depth and after that divides all the things in two separate parts first part which is very easy and second which is difficult for you.
  • Then keep the preparation more for difficult section but do not ignore the easy section because every section plays a major role in GATE examination.
  • Make a time table and Allocate equal time to each subject.
  • Practice previous model papers as much you can and after that analyze your score and find your weak points.
  • Consult with your professors and seniors if you have any doubt in any question and if you not satisfy with answer than join the best coaching if necessary.
  • Discipline and focus is key of success in exam so do the preparation with keen Concentration and focus only on exam do not waste their time in any kind of activity.
  • Prepare your own notes after completing every topic/chapter. It will help you while revising before paper.
