    • Hello satyendra,

      Clearing GATE exam is not so hard.
      There are three section in GATE exam. If you prepare just basics of these all three sections you will get qualified.
      Remember always cover all these three sections. No section should be left. Sometimes we left a section for preparation and find very easy questions in exam from that section.

      First find your mistakes in previous attempts. If you find them exactly and resolve them just by resolving them you will qualified GATE this year.

      You must read these posts. These posts will give you an idea about GATE exam and about GATE exam preparation approach.
      (1) How to start preparation for gate 2016 ? – http://www.gate2016.info/gate-guidance/how-to-start-preparation-for-gate-2016/
      (2) 15 Must Read Tips and Tricks for GATE 2016 Aspirants – http://www.gate2016.info/gate-guidance/15-must-read-tips-and-tricks-for-gate-2016-aspirants/

      (5) Preparation strategy for GATE 2016 examination – http://www.gate2016.info/gate-guidance/preparation-strategy-for-gate-2016-examination/

      For important subjects and topics buy a previous years papers book in which you will find all the analysis very well including GATE 2015 paper.
      GATE 2016 Reference Books : http://www.gate2016.info/gate-2016-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.
      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.

      There are two things under consideration :
      (1) You are graduate in electronics and communication
      (2) You want to attend GATE paper in computer science

      Yes you can write GATE 2016 paper in Computer Science.

      Now two things will happen with you in this way :
      (1) Some institutes will not allow you to enter in their M Tech program bcz they want a candidate must be graduate in Computer science.
      (2) You can write GATE 2016 paper in Electronics and communication but again you will face some problem like you are now too eligible for M Tech in Computer Science but only for few branches in which an Electronics communication candidate can take admission.

      • thank u sir
        but what is this false information? and when will be the time period to update the cleared subject?

        • Hi divya,

          I would like to give you some basic information about GATE. As per GATE 2015 notification –
          Eligibility Criteria for GATE 2015 is : Currently in the 4th year or already completed.
          Note : There is written that : Year of qualification cannot be later than 2015. In your case it would be 2016 for GATE 2016 candidates. If you would clear your B.E./B.Tech. course in the year 2016 then you are eligible.
          So if you acquire this qualification before filling GATE form you are filling GATE form with true information if not than its false information just to attend GATE exam.

    • Hello meghana,

      Scholarship would be given to only those candidates who clear GATE and then on that GATE score card get admission in any of the nationalize institute.
      This scholarship will directly provided by MHRD when you get admission through your GATE score card in any institute.
      So if you clear GATE this year and want to get scholarship then you have to get admission again in any nationalize institute and start your course again from first year.

  64. Hello
    I’m pursuing B.Tech Mechatronics Engineering , i would like to know which subject should i prepare if i want to take up M.Tech Mechatronics.

    • Hello Nikhil,

      As there is no separate paper for Mechatronics in GATE so you need to choose a subject which is close to your subject. I think Mechanical engineering would be better to choose.
      then after qualifying GATE, as per your GATE score you can apply for Mechatronics.
      For more details like qualification, percentage etc visit the institutes website in which you want to get admission.
