    • Hello surya,

      It is really a great decision that you want to start your GATE exam preparation from 1st year of engineering.
      If you just read 2 hours daily from now and we get a rough idea about your study hours than you have nearly 2000 hours study till GATE exam. Means 200 hours for each subject if there are 10 subjects in your GATE paper.
      First understand GATE exam nature, syllabus, paper pattern, make some plan etc during this period study mathematics and Aptitude.
      GATE Reference Books :

      Than start studying each subject politely you have much time for GATE exam preparation. You may read this blog during your free time. Here we have written so many posts related to GATE/IES/PSUs exam information and preparation. It will surely help you in your preparation.

      There is no percentage requirement to attend this exam but if you want to use this GATE exam score for M Tech or PSU than you have to score atleast 60% in your B Tech course and as much as possible marks in GATE.

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

  2. Hello sir
    I am taking IES coaching and also I want to get good rank in gate but it is very hard for me to manage coaching classes and gate preparation. I want suggestion how I will get good rank in gate and how I have to prepare for exam within 3 months

    • Hello Aishwarya,

      First of all you need to decide what you want to do prepare for ? IES or GATE or both IES & GATE ?
      Remember it is not easy to prepare both exams simultaneously. You have to plan properly for this. Remember it’s not going to be easy.
      You must have heard about many candidates who prepare for both IES as well as GATE. Surely they succeed. But they really work hard for this.

      Now how to prepare :
      First if you really want to prepare for both then you have to concentrate now totally on GATE. Because it’s just 3 months.
      But so far you must have completed atleast once the whole technical syllabus of IES from IES objective papers point of view. Because after GATE exam only 4-5 months will remain for IES.
      In those 4-5 months you have to prepare GS and English as well as all subjects from Subjective papers point of view for IES.
      This is the strategy which is generally GATE & IES toppers adopt. This is what I can suggest you right now.

  3. Hello sir I’m a 2015 passed out joined in mtech power systems, previously took coaching for AP GENCO but as only TS GENCO 2015 exams are being conducted and I,m a native of AP cant attempt for that exams I applied for 2016 gate but not started the preparation.On what topics should I concentrate for atleast qualifying? this time and from what topics should I start to prepare for gate as gate preparation is also useful for cracking genco and PSU’s so that i get a job in PSU’s. please help me sir

  4. hello sir, i am from EEE branch and i will be appearing for gate 2016. I want to know as in gate exam its hard to tell how much marks will be coming from any particular topic as it is quite unpredictable.So, is it wise to skip a few topics while preparing as i have less time left for exam. if yes, which electrical subjects can i skip this time. please advice..

  5. i am in first year engineering my college has average package of 4.5 lpa and highest of 10 lakhs so should i attempt next year jee or try for upsc,gate or mba

    • Hello eric,

      Its totally depends on your abilities.
      If you prepare this year for IIT JEE along with your engineering study(most probably) there are less chances that you would get a good rank in IIT JEE exam bcz of your engineering study and college.
      If any how you get a good rank in IIT JEE then you would get admission in first year of engineering in IIT. So here you would waste your 2 years of life.
      If you can prepare well for exams like GATE, CAT along with your engineering you can achieve what you want to achieve. Like getting admission into top most colleges of India.
      Rest final decision depends on you.

  6. hello sir, i am a 2012 btech pass out in electrical engineering..i want to prepare for gate exams this year, will this be a good idea and a right time to prepare my GATE after 3 years of my passing. will this year gap be a hurdle in my interviews and future exposures. currently i am 26yrs old and i have no work experience in this year gap…I am feeling very much confident about this,that i can secure good,as during my btech years i had secured 24 and 24.50 marks in my attempts of 2011 and 2012 gate exams,with some light preparations… inpite of being confident i am much confused as the risk factor of age and year gap is much high. .. my mail id – [email protected].
    expecting your guidance
    Thank you.

    • Hello Rajan,

      B Tech from IIT or M Tech from IIT, for this you have to take admission to IIT. So, obviously you are an IITian.
