1. First of all go through latest syllabus of GATE completely. Read every single topic of each subject carefully mentioned in the GATE syllabus.

“It is important to know what to study but
it is more important to know what not to study”

Because you have to choose subjects to study as per GATE syllabus you do not need to study all subjects which you have studied during your B.E. / B. Tech. course.

2. Buy Made Easy / ACE Academy GATE previous years papers book with explained solution. It will surely help greatly those who are preparing self at home.

Must read : How to Crack GATE 2018 Without Coaching ?

3. Always read standard books

Must check : GATE 2018 Books

Why need to read standard books ?
Because standard books written by highly experienced Professors of reputed institutes / universities. Data available in those books are very well examined on theoretical as well as practical measurements. These books always comes with complete analysis and statistics which you can find on the start and last of the books.
GATE papers are designed by IISc, IIT, NITs highly experienced professor those who have written many international and national level books and articles. So always try to use standard books. Try to avoid mere knowledge books. Some standard publications are Tata McGraw-Hill (TMH), Prentice-Hall of India (PHI), Wiley etc.

4. Many would say 3 to 4 month serious preparation is enough but I would suggest you as per present competition you must start your preparation as soon as possible targeting GATE 2018 examination.

Must read : How to start preparation for gate 2018 ?

5. First of all make proper plan before starting your GATE preparation. What you have to study ? What you have already studied or in which areas you are weak and in which areas you are strong ? How many hours you have in a day for GATE preparation ? Specially if you are preparing for GATE with college study.

6. In free time try to read articles or guide notes written by previously qualified candidates or toppers. It will surely give you a good idea about GATE preparation because experience take time and you are getting it without wasting your time. If possible try to communicate with them so that they can rectify your silly mistakes in your preparation strategy.

7. Always keep a copy of syllabus of GATE with you, refer it as much as possible because many time we try to ignore many topic and those topics have big portion in your GATE paper and that inversely affect your rank in GATE examination.

8. Don’t start your preparation in rush like doing all subjects at once. Starting studying everything like theory and numerical of all subjects at once it will confused you in last time preparation. Start with basics then go high as you find yourself good enough prepared. As per my suggestion make your GATE preparation plan in three steps :
(1) First basic studies like definitions, units, dimensions etc. It will help you very well in extension study of that particular subject. (2) Theoretical portion of that particular subject. (3) Numerical portion of that particular subject.
At last revision of that particular subject before starting new one. Try to study only one subject at a time. If you can manage two subjects at a time that would also good. But more then two subjects at a time may lead you in big confusion in last time preparation or at revision time.

9. Try to solve as much as possible theoretical and numerical problems because as said “Practice makes man perfect”.
I will suggest you read only one subject at a time  from only one book. That one book must good enough to follow GATE syllabus. So before starting GATE study, consult with your seniors or GATE qualifiers about books for GATE preparation. Do not follow books without knowledge because all books don’t have good learning material it may lead you less marks in GATE exam.

10. Stay with a particular topic, understand what GATE paper designer ask from that topic, read all questions asked in GATE previous years, try to solve similar kind of question from as much as possible books.

11. When you find you have done enough questions for that particular topic then try to find some tricks that will help you to solve question with in  shortest possible time so that you can utilize your remaining time in other questions solving because in GATE paper three kind of questions they asked :
(1) Easy : Which many students would be able to answer without much preparation. (2) Moderate : These kind of question easily answered by who prepared for GATE with some awareness. (3) Hard : For this kind of questions student need very good preparation of every single topic of each subject mentioned in the GATE syllabus.
This kind of question mostly lengthy and include more than 1 logic which you have to apply to solve that particular question. Many times 3-4 logic. So, such kind of question need more attention and need more time to solve than easy questions. So always try to save your time in exam for such kind of questions.

Must check : GATE Previous Years Papers 

12. Always try to develop some good tricks while you study at home because to be master in some kind of tricks you have to practice it as much as possible time.
You can learn it from a magician he work for a single trick nearly 10-12 hours in a single day for just making one show of some minutes but what after introducing that trick ?

All the people in the hall just praise his work and clap for his trick same as that magician you have to practice as much as possible to make your trick successful for that you need to study continuously for hours with very high concentration.

13. Mock tests are the most important part in your preparation because you are going to prepare for an exam not for writing a book. So if you will not try to prepare in exam like environment you will surely do some silly kind of mistakes in the exam that in return lead you less marks.
So if possible try to make some mock tests by yourself if you can’t afford any coaching expanses or try to collect some test papers from your friends who have joined coaching and taking mock tests. You can use those papers as your own mock test preparation just sit with your table and chair like in exam, set a clock for 3 hours exam like as exam hall and try to solve question same as you would solve in your GATE exam. If you can afford coaching expenses then you may join any test series of good coaching institute.

Mock tests give you a good idea about time management in the exam hall in which many fails due to some silly reasons. The whole plan of exam must be in your mind like you have given this exam many times even if you are giving it first time. It would only possible if you prepare yourself for this exam previously very well.

14. Always evaluate yourself, not just run like a horse in a race. Make a plan for study. Study for 6 days in a week and left 1 day for revision purpose for what you have studied in last 6 days. Same do it for a month plan. Leave 2-3 days of a month in last for the revision for what you have studied in that particular month.
You need to revise what you have studied in your whole preparation like if you have 6 months for GATE preparation than you have to complete your whole GATE syllabus in just 5 months. Keep last month for revision because you can’t revise/recall everything what you have studied in last 5 months without revising it.

15. If you don’t have enough time to prepare the whole syllabus of GATE then first calculate in what areas examiner asked questions the most try to prepare them first then others.

If you need any kind of guidance or have any kind of query related to GATE examination preparation you may write it below through comment box. We will provide solution as soon as possible. Feel free to ask anything related to GATE preparation. Good Luck for your GATE 2018 Exam 🙂

    I am an working person I get 1-2 hour for a day to prepare for Gate .
    Can you suggest me how to start …………..

    • Suggestions :
      1- First of all solve 20-30 years previous years papers of GATE exam. Don’t just solve them but also understand them & solve some related question also. If you have solved all GATE previous papers than do solve problems given on last of standard books. Solve as much as possible questions.
      2. Always read standard books.
      3. Join some good test series for your better performance in GATE exam. It will prepare you for exam like environment.

      Time Management :
      1- You must have more time than 1-2 hours. How ?
      Study at home and note down all the important topics & Formulas in a note book/notebook & revise them during office time whenever you find yourself free. Utilize your free time as much as possible.
      2- Study on regular basic don’t waste a single day. Study less or more but study daily it will keep you connected to your study.

    • Mona Chourshiya

      Sir, can u plz tell me about the book kanodia..forr electrical aspirant.. Am I supposed to prefer it r not?

      • Hello Mona,

        kanodia books are good. You can take them as reference books. But always refer text books for individual subjects. You can prpfer text books which you have used during your graduation.
        If you are preparing for GATE 2017. You must first focus on completing GATE 2017 syllabus as soon as possible.
        kanodia books will consume your time if you solve every single question given in that book. Solve selected problems of each subject and move to next subject.

        Please follow below link.

    can one top gate in just 6 months in chemical engineering if yes then tell me how many hours we must prepare for that

    • Selection is matter of your dedication & approach towards GATE exam.
      There are many students who have cleared GATE exam with good rank just in 2-3 months preparation.
      So everything depends upon your plan for exam & your hard work.
      How many hours ?
      Study hours depends upon your study technique. Some students may understand a topic with in a minute some take a whole day. So make a study plan according to the syllabus for a day not according to hours of a day.
      Hours doesn’t matter if you know what you need to study.
      Because in this competitive world it is more important to know what not to study than what to study.

  3. sir, I appeared in gate 2015 in mechanical. I face a big problem in that. i was able to solve 60-70 out of 100. bt I couldnot attempt all questions due to lack of time. how can I manage time in examination hall and how can I avoid sily mistake.?

  4. I could attempt only 30 questions. my big problem was sily mistakes. so I devoted much time for questions in which I was 100% sure. my time management was not good. BT I was really able to solve 60-70 out of 100. And I could only attempt 40-45 marks.

    • Pradeep mistakes are obvious. Everyone does but important is how less.
      One of the best solution for reducing your mistakes is practice as much as possible & timely revise your notes.
      For your time management you must join one or more test series of some reputed Institutes if you can.
      If you can not join any coaching due to any reason than make some tests by yourself by selecting good questions from different-different books / online resources and put them in a paper same as GATE exam n solve them in same environment & time as you attended GATE. You can also contact any of you friends who has joined any test series he may help you.

  5. Sir I want to prepare gate phy. So pl tell me how to do it.in syllabus we have to see only given topics or sub topics also.wt about numerical and apptitude.how to prepare for these two.

  6. i have only 6 months time for preparing gate and i’m an engineering student so i have to manage both the college work and gate preparation i couldn’t get sufficient time and i used leave gate preparation for some period of time how should i manage this

    • srivarshini first of all during your preparation time always think that you would be able to qualify GATE exam with good rank and start your preparation in this way. This positive though will give you more strength and power to your preparation.
      Start your preparation with solving last 20-30 years papers of GATE. It will give you a good idea about what kind of questions you are going to face in next GATE exam also it will clear you more that what you need to study from GATE syllabus with more effort n what with less.
      Always read standard books bcz they are error free and written by highly educated person.
      Now about 6 month plan for preparation :
      1. First of all calculate your whole day time which you spend in college and daily work then make a time table for remaining time for daily, weekly and monthly study. Try to spend your maximum time in your GATE preparation.
      2. Spend your 1st month in previous years papers solving then start solving more question on 1 by 1 subject basis. remember concentrate more on the topics which r asked more frequently first then prepare others.
      3. The most important part you must include in your preparation is revision part. Revise what you have studied at the last of the day, week and month. It will help you in quick revision in last time in less time.

  7. SIR i have given GATE 2015,i am just qualified.I want job is PSU’S thats why i have prepare in this year.Could you suggest me the coaching institute for mechanical stream.And keeping in mind that gate2016 organizing institute is IISC BANGLORE

    • For getting success you need to do hard work in right direction. So first find what you need to prepare than prepare hard.
      I will not suggest you any coaching personally but you may ask this question on Facebook, quora, pagalguy etc. Actually a student should choose a coaching as per his/her requirement. So match your requirement with various coaching available and select one.
      GATE 2016 will most probably organized by IISc Bangalore but now this is not about IISc or X IIT now it is more about your luck and your hard work because now GATE office uses scaling. So now prepare hard and pray to god that you get good marks after scaling.

      Feel free to ask if you need any help in future & join us @ Google+ / Facebook for getting regular updates.

      • Surely sir, i’ll work hard…But about the right direction you are talking about that is where i am finding problem,I am really searching for the right direction….Sometimes i think that i am taking a huge risk of doing coaching outside….if i fail then?MY financial condition is not enough….I will work hard but where i could get the right directionb?

        • If your family can’t afford your coaching fee than why you are rushing towards coaching ?
          Coaching is mainly for guidance + study material + time 2 time solution problem.
          So,
          (1) If you can get proper guidance from any of your senior who have qualified GATE than no need of coaching. You may also search such GATE qualifiers on Facebook and ask them for help n guidance.
          (2) Study material is not issue you can buy any coaching study material without joining it. Even now you may arrange it outside the coaching with less price or you may arrange it from previously qualified candidates.
          (3) If you have completed your B Tech than you have a whole year so make a plan for every day, every week, every month and for a whole year and stick to that plan. Remember always read standard books and keep some time for revision in your preparation plan.
          Obviously you would get stuck many time during your study so here again you need help. So here again you need to contact to your seniors who have qualified GATE or you may get help from Facebook.

          If you can do this all properly than no nee to join any coaching but I want to say one thing many aspirants even after joining coaching not able to maintain these things. So nowadays coaching doesn’t matter much your dedication matters a lot. I have seen many GATE & IES qualifies who never join any coaching and clear GATE & IES with good rank.

          About joining any coaching read this article : http://www.gate2016.info/gate-guidance/is-it-necessary-to-join-coaching-for-gate-2016/

    • hello suresh,
      Qualifying GATE exam is not so hard. You might doing some major mistake(s) during your GATE exam preparation. If you focus on some important topics of technical subjects and of mathematics and of non technical section then even you can qualify easily.

      For qualifying any exam you need to study continuously and meaningful. So Make a time table for your spare time and do regular study as per that.

  16. SIR I WANT TO KNOW THAT IS COACHING IS HELPFUL IN GATE PREPARATION OR SELF STUDY IS BETTER..

  17. Sir/Mam,
    May I start preparing with the help of notes this time because notes are as per GATE syllabus and I am in mechanical stream so what subject should I prepare first and how should I prepare for mechanical stream?

  18. Hello Sarfraz,

    Notes are designed for guidance basically they alone can’t give you assurance of your success in any exam. So follow notes but with standard books of each subject atleast one book.

    GATE 2016 Mechanical Engineering Reference Books : http://www.gate2016.info/gate-2016-books/mechanical-engineering-me-gate-books/

    For better knowing abt important topics n subjects buy made easy previous years papers book in which you will find complete analysis of from which subjects they ask questions mainly and regularly prepare them first.
    Prepare previous 20-30 years papers in depth n well understanding. Although in GATE exam questions are not repeated but they ask like one time 2+2=? then second time 2×2=?. So prepare this time smartly.

    sampath

    • Hello sampath,

      Actually you must first check the institute in which you are going to take admission as per your requirement. I have written a post about this.
      Now you must contact to previously GATE qualified candidates around you, take guidance from facebook there are many communities there you can post your questions/queries and you can also make a local group of the students who are taking coaching with you at the same institute or other. Some students are strong in some subjects and other in some others. So you guys can help each other.

    • Hello NIKHIL,

      Study time & its management depends upon your suitability.
      So it doesn’t matter when you study. Important is you concentration towards study.

  41. Hi,
    I have already done my Mtech in Construction management and have a good 3 years work exp. in MNCs and prestigious projects. I am currently associated with State Irrigation department. I am strongly willing to prepare for GATE 2016 to secure a post in any PSU. When I resumed my studies I learnt that I have forgotten the basics of most of the subjects and finding it real hard to actually take off from a point. I feel directionless. Please provide basic guidance and structure to suit my improvement and efforts. I have a desk job here and time is 10 to 6. Looking forward. Thank you.

    • Hello Sacheen,

      There major points of consideration are here :
      1. You have done M Tech
      2. You have 3 year experience
      3. Your job suits for preparation

      First comes first, you have done M Tech so obviously you have done work hard earlier so now you just need to recall that. If you have your old notes and books then try to collect them at one place. If you still have them, First just check them if they recall you some past memories of your study then its good for your GATE 2016 preparation. If not then do not worry much nowadays there are many books and guidance available on internet and offline too.
      First you need to buy some basic books like a made easy handbook in which you find all the formulas and important theory in a compact form or you can make a notebook by yourself of all important formulas and theory but it should be summarized so that you can revise it quickly during your preparation and at the last time of your preparation i.e., at the time of revision.
      Second a book which contain atleast previous 20-30 years papers with solution. So that you can know what kind of preparation you need to clear GATE 2016 exam. You must have boos for each subject mentioned in the syllabus, if you don’t have then you can check this list of books for GATE 2016 : http://www.gate2016.info/gate-2016-books/
      Always prefer standard books because they are error free and contain theoretical as well as analytical knowledge.

      This 3 year experience will help you while you will face PSUs interview. SO take advantage of all the plus points you have.

      Don’t worry much, while we move from 10th to 11th we study whole new syllabus. We study that and clear exam. Here you are just recalling what you just have read earlier. Surely it will take some time but you have to have patience and keep moving in right direction. As you said your job is kind of desk job then now its time to use this time. Make notes at home and revise then at office.

  42. I would like to thank the makers of this platform for gate exam. It’s a great effort and thought to guide students/aspirants for their healthy career start. Great initiative and surely it would have helped a lot of aspirants for their self study. It means a valuable add on in ones career. Thank you very much Team.

  43. hi, my be percentage is 65.17. i m from mumbai university.

    • Hello teju,

      Your % is good enough for getting admission into most of the top institutes.
      Your % is good enough for getting a call from companies after completing your masters or during your masters.
      If you really want to get a good placement and want to do job in core sector then you must prepare again for GATE and get admission in one of the best IITs/IISc.

      However last decision would be yours.

  47. hello sir,
    I joined made easy for both gate and IES electrical. but I cannot revise the classes. would it affect me at preparation at late? how to prepare time table for long term study of 7 months from now ?

    • Hello swaroop,

      If you are taking coaching than you have to study parallel with coaching.
      If you are not revising your classes you are actually loosing your study. It will surely affect your last time preparation bcz when you revise these parts at last if you find any difficulty or either if you forgot something then what would you do in those last moments ?
      So from now revise regularly atleast what you are studying at coaching except this you need to invest some time for your own study bcz after all you are going to take exam, coaching not instead of you.
      For last 6 months preparation strategy please refer – How to prepare for GATE 2016 in 6 months? : http://www.gate2016.info/gate-guidance/how-to-prepare-for-gate-2016-in-6-months/

  57. mansukh kateshiya

    sir i am not started gate preparation, now i will completed gate syllabus in a only for 6th months

  58. First of all, it’s a great initiative taken by u guys for providing us a healthy discussion platform regarding gate exam. I am a Mechanical engineer working in a power project for last one year. I couldn’t get good marks this time, just 56 this time. It being my second attempt left me frustrated as I seriously wanted to get into a psu. But I gave it a thought and I found out that it was my job which was taking a toll on my preparation. As I was working 10 hrs a day on field I felt too tired to study and thus couldn’t even give the mocks in the end. But now I am half heartedly doing my job thinking all the time about how to crack it next time. Suggest me whether I should drop my job now and prepare for straight 6 mnths or continue my job and prepare side by side in an inconsistent manner. Please reply asap.

    • Hello Tushar,

      As per given information by you I also felt that you job is the main reason of your less score in GATE exam.
      There are nearly 6 months for GATE 2016 exam.
      If you can take 6 months leave without affecting your job, family condition and all then take get leave.
      If you can’t bcz of any reason then atleast take 2/3 day leave in a 6 day working week so that you can get 3/4 days in a week for your preparation and you would also not felt tired during those days and would be able to prepare well. As I can think after working 10 hours in a day studying for GATE exam will not boost your mind so that your analytical technique.

  61. Hi admin,

    I’m Aditya from Hyderabad. First of all, I appreciate you for providing very useful information regarding GATE exam.

    I have completed my graduation in 2014 from Electrical background with an aggregate of 69%. I made my first attempt in 2014 but couldn’t crack the exam. After my Engg, I was in job search for nearly three months.
    Luckily, I’ve got placed in solar company but couldn’t afford with the salary provided.

    In this way I have wasted one precious year of 2014 and so couldn’t attempt GATE 2015.

    Now I’m presently working as a Maintenance Engineer in a well reputed company from March 2015 and I’ll be getting nearly 3-4 hrs for preparation. The shifts will be rotational on daily basis with only 1 weekly-off per week.

    Whatever be the situation, but I’m willing to attempt GATE 2016 at my best.

    So, kindly suggest me how can I manage my time so that I try to achieve my best in GATE…….
    I’m an average student and interested in Power Systems and Control Systems.

    Finally, I wish you for a grand success in future…….

  62. hello admin,
    i am in b.tech mechanical 4-1 now so,can i skip the topics in which am weak and start preparing in the areas which am strong? is it a good thing ? and i request you to suggest any materials related to gate exam.
    thank you.

    • Hello umamaheshwara,

      As you said you are in final year so you would have less time for your GATE 2016 preparation.
      It is also necessary that you keep your concentration more on your final year because that is more important than GATE.
      Yes there is no problem if you start your preparation with subjects in which you are strong.

      GATE 2016 ME engineering Reference Books : http://www.gate2016.info/gate-2016-books/mechanical-engineering-me-gate-books/

      First you have to have a book of previous GATE 20-30 years papers with solution so that you can get a good idea about GATE questions.
      Then atleast one standard book of each subject. All books required for GATE exam preparation in Engineering are mentioned in above link.

  63. i have only 3 hours of class …. upto how much time i need to spend for gate for better result????

    • Hello suresh,

      Its depends upon you mind catching power, storing and restoring power, your plan and strategy for GATE exam, you source of preparation etc.
      So, its really hard to tell you how much hours you must study a day to secure a good rank in GATE.

      However we can give you some suggestion for your preparation time table :
      (1) make plan as per time availability in a day for study exclude other times like daily routine work etc.
      (2) Always study in three level anything :
      1. easy
      2. medium
      3. Hard

      First follow easy. Like you are going to study a chapter. Note down all the important topic from exam point of view and study introductory of every topic then move to next chapter and so on. It will not take much time and you will complete your whole syllabus at least once then medium than hard.

      Make a time table for a whole day, for a week, for a month and for a year for GATE 2016. Stick to the time table. Must include time for revision in each time table.

      You need to have atleast one standard book for each subject. Standard books are with correct and good information.
      One previous years paper book of last 20-30 years. It will help you what kind of questions they asked in exam.

      Complete book list for GATE 2016 : http://www.gate2016.info/gate-2016-books/

  64. Haffis Mohammed Sn

    sir i am going to prepare for gate with some notes of ace academy and previous questions and books ,but i am not confident because i feel that no one can get gate without a coaching institue and time.

    • Hello Haffis,

      Every year there are not few but many candidates who are being select in UPSC IAS, IES, GATE etc exams with self study.
      If every candidate who join coaching is being get selected then why only 15-20% candidate clear GATE cut off which is generally 25% or less of total marks.
      So its totally depends upon you if you are comfortable with self study then self study is best for you if you are comfortable with coaching then coaching would be best for you.

  84. Sir, Is solving only previous 25 years papers thoroughly from made easy’s publication good enough to get a good rank in GATE….

    • Hello gaurav,

      Solving only previous years questions will not ensure your good rank in GATE exam. If this happen then every one will solve only previous years papers and atleast get qualified GATE exam. Only 15%(nearly) candidates qualified GATE exam. For more details click here : http://www.gate2016.info/gate-guidance/gate-yearwise-analysis/
      Yes if you solve previous years paper smartly then you will easily qualify GATE and also have a good chance to get good rank but for top most rank you have to study well.

  100. Sir please tell me how can i start preparation for gate 2016…..i couldnt start earlier ….will i be able to prepare in 2 months?? currently i am not workng and studying….

  101. sir,which part we should the most from the point of view to gate,(Theory or numericals).If we are going through the numericals except theory then,how much it will matter for me? Thanks

    • Hello hament,

      GATE exam is based on numerical problems mainly. Nearly 70-80% problems in GATE paper are numerical but numericals can not be solved easily if you don’t know about their base and base can only be strong by making strong your theory part. I hope you are getting my point.

  105. Hello Sir !
    I am 2013-17 batch student from civil branch and I want to crack gate 2017 exam…
    Is this much sufficient for my own preparation in home?

    • Hello Alka,

      One year with full dedication is more than enough for GATE exam preparation at home. But remember full dedication is essential. Do not waste a single minute, prepare a single formula from your GATE syllabus in this short time. If you will start using this much time you will surely get your goal achieved. I am not saying do not watch TV, do not enjoy life but remember for what you are preparing, for what you have invested your 20-21 years of education. That’s it.

  106. Sir i m in 3rd year b.tech (civil) and i wants to starts my preparation for GATE IES 2017 …SO Tell how can i do and from which standard book i start my study

  107. Amit Sadashiv Patil

    Hello sir,
    I am Amit Sadashiv Patil, in Third year CSE from Pune.
    I have started my GATE preparation from Ace Postal Coaching.
    Whenever I get doubt I refer google to solve it. I just prepare subject wise from the booklets provided by Ace class.
    I do not refer standard reference books but as I said I clear my doubts from net and focus on solving more quality questions to get concepts thorough.

    Reading reference books looks so time taking for me. And I feel that GATE exam is of solving MCQs based on concepts.

    Am I going in totally wrong direction???
    Please help…

    • Hello Amit,

      The main thing is you must clear your concepts. The source of info doesn’t matter but it must authentic that’s why we refer popular authors books.
      What if you solve a question in GATE exam and after getting result you find that you mistakenly solves 2/3 question wrong not because of lack of knowledge but wrong knowledge.
      So you may refer any source of info but checking that source of info authenticity is your responsibility.

  108. Hi admin , I’m in SE mech pune university In university prescribed books there are two section for each subject like textbook and reference for eg . FoR
    Fluid Mechanics Textbook = R.K.Bansal ,
    And that for reference = kundu Cohen Dowling
    I’m so confused what to purchase exactly Indian authors or International

    • Hello Sahil,

      Text books specially designed as per certain syllabus / follow certain syllabus while reference books are not.
      But still we follow reference books because they help us to understand our syllabus in depth.
      These reference books are generally written by well known national or foreign authors.These books doesn’t vary university to university or country to country. You may say them universal books.

    • Hello amit,

      Some silly mistakes are general in nature which can be avoided by basic awareness and some by practice GATE exam in exam like environment.
      Rest mistakes vary person to person. So you have notice them and rectify them at your level.
      Although cut off depends upon many factors like number of candidates appear in GATE exam, difficulty level of GATE paper, number of seats in each PSUs. You can get some idea from previous years cut-offs but you can’t get some certain cut-offs. I hope you are understanding.

    Thank you.

    • Hello Hari,

      All these things are good for you & your engineering course.
      But I am going to tell you a bitter truth, What if you do your engineering & all other things good but fail to score qualifying marks in GATE year by year.
      GATE AIR 1 will get call from all PSUs & one who has many certificates at their graduation level but do not qualify GATE will not get call from any PSU.
      What I want to say give first preference to your GATE exam or any other exam for which you are preparing.
      Now decision is yours.

    Thanks in advance.

  130. Sir , I read your article and it really helpful . I have some problem. Firstly I am currently a Final year Information Technology student under WBUT . On our syllabus Compiler design and discrete mathematics not there but those 2 subjects are in GATE syllabus.So I dont know a single thing of those subjects. Also I started my GATE 2017 preparation from this final year. My question to you , so how can I prepare for GATE with those subjects (Compiler Design and Discrete Maths )?

    • Hello Pritam,

      GATE syllabus is designed as per the requirement of that particular branch, it doesn’t depend upon any university/college i.e., Information Technology in your case.
      Certainly if you are going to prepare for GATE and want to get good rank/marks in GATE then you have to prepare these two subjects too.
      Just follow one standard book of these two subjects which will give a good idea about each topic of GATE syllabus of your branch.
      Please follow this link for GATE 2017 CS&IT Reference Books : http://www.gate2016.info/gate-books/computer-science-and-information-technology-cs-gate-books/
      You can get idea about GATE level questions from previous years papers of CS&IT branch.
      Made Easy or ACE book you can prefer any. Check these from above given link.

  131. Sir i am a lateral entry student. i am poor in mathematics like differentiation and integration . how can I prepare for gate exam ?

    • Hello durga,

      Try to understand these topics from level zero.
      Like 1+1 = 2.
      You can opt any online or offline book for this purpose even you can start these topics understanding from your 11th & 12th class books.
      You can take help of coaching institute or any close friend which can help you for these topics. These are the best ways which we can suggest you.

    • Hello Kanchu,

      One who want to get rank under 10 in GATE need to prepare everything mentioned in GATE syllabus but first do what is more important.
      You can divide your GATE exam syllabus in 3 parts.
      Very Important
      Important
      Less Important.
      You must prepare first Very Important topics properly then Important and at last Less Important.
      Very Important topics must prepared by you without any fail.

        • Hello santosh,

          Thanks for appreciating our work.
          First NPTEL videos are good for understanding topics of engineering subjects.
          Second this is a source of information out of many. If this technique suits you means understanding topics using NPTEL videos then you can refer NPTEL videos without any issue.
