How to Start Preparation for GATE 2022 – Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an exam for those who have completed bachelor of engineering (B. E.) / technology (B. Tech.) / Science (B.Sc.)/ Architecture (B.Arch.) / Pharmacy (B.Pharm.).
Although candidates who are currently in final / 4th year may also apply for GATE exam. So when we go through the eligibility criteria for GATE exam either you must completed bachelor degree or you must be in the final / 4th year.

When I can/should start my preparation for GATE 2022 ?
Eligibility criteria is completed bachelor degree or you must be in the final / 4th year but there is no criteria for starting preparation for GATE.
You can start your GATE exam preparation from any year of engineering either it could be 1st year or 2nd year or 3rd year or final year.
There is limit in eligibility criteria for attending GATE exam but there is no limit for starting preparation for GATE exam.
How can/should I start my preparation for GATE 2022 ?
Now questions comes how ? First of all when we take a look to the paper pattern of GATE which is same every year since very long time.
There are three sections in the paper for paper codes – AE, AG, BT, CE, CH, CS, EC, EE, IN, ME, MN, MT, PI, TF and XE. Which are as shown in below table :
|Paper Sections||Marks Distribution|
|Subject Questions||72% of the total marks.|
|Engineering Mathemetics||13% of the total marks.|
|General Aptitude||15% of the total marks.|
There are two sections in the paper for paper codes – AR, CY, EY, GG, MA, PH, ST and XL. Which are as shown in below table :
|Paper Sections||Marks Distribution|
|Subject Questions||85% of the total marks.|
|General Aptitude||15% of the total marks.|
A candidate need to attend all sections either it is three section for paper codes – AE, AG, BT, CE, CH, CS, EC, EE, IN, ME, MN, MT, PI, TF and XE or two sections for paper codes – AR, CY, EY, GG, MA, PH and XL.
(1) How to prepare for Engineering Mathematics for GATE 2022 ?
You can start preparation of engineering mathematics from your first / second year because engineering mathematics is a part of first and second year syllabus of B.E. / B. Tech course.
If you start preparation for engineering mathemetics as early as possible it would be good for you because candidates either get admission in B.E. / B. Tech. course after clearing 12th examination or after completing Diploma in engineering.
In both the levels you must have read mathematics which is not more different than engineering mathematics of B.E. / B. Tech. level.
Just after completing 12th or after completing Diploma in engineering with mathematics as one of your main subject you get admission in engineering, You study engineering mathematics in first and second year syllabus of B.E. / B. Tech.
So you would be in a flow. I mean to say if you any how would be able to continue this flow from 12th / Diploma in engineering to engineering from first year to final year you would be master of engineering mathematics finally.
Many candidates who were good at their mathematics at 12th / Diploma in engineering level as well as engineering degree level but start their preparation at the last months of preparation of engineering mathemetics for GATE and get less marks in engineering mathematics section of GATE paper.
So if you take little bit awareness about this you could be able to get advantage of this 15% marks of total marks. As per GATE exam pattern engineering mathematics cover 15% marks of total marks. So it would play a major role in your final selection.
(2) How to prepare for General Aptitude for GATE 2022 ?
Similarly as engineering mathemetics general aptitude also cover 15% marks of total marks and this section can also be prepared at any level of engineering. This section is common for all branches of engineering and science except any paper code.
This section is comprises of Verbal ability & Numerical ability. General aptitude are not studied by engineering students at their graduate level so that these subjects have no relation with neither engineering nor any year of engineering.
Any one can start General aptitude preparation at any time and in any year of engineering either you are in first year or final year.
You have studied English grammar at your school level as well as first year of your engineering so you can start its preparation from first year of engineering till final year you would be master of English grammar.
(3) How to prepare for Subject Questions for GATE 2022 ?
This section contain 70% weightage of total marks for paper codes – AE, AG, BT, CE, CH, CS, EC, EE, IN, ME, MN, MT, PI, TF and XE in GATE exam and 85% weightage of total marks for paper codes – AR, CY, EY, GG, MA, PH, ST and XL.
This section contains nearly 8 to 10 subjects of what you have studied at your engineering degree level. Mainly these subjects are from your second and third year engineering degree syllabus.
Nearly 80-90% of GATE subject section syllabus is covered in these 2 years of engineering. So, candidates those who are in First year just start preparing their subjects of semester as per GATE syllabus and paper pattern.
Subject section of GATE paper contain nearly 8-10 major subjects of engineering so if you study 2-3 subjects right from first year of engineering you would not be pressurized in your final year and you may also save your money by not getting admission in any coaching with or after final year under pressure of preparation of GATE.
Which books should I refer ?
You study English grammar in your first year of engineering, engineering mathematics in your first and second year of engineering and Engineering subjects from first year to final year. While you don’t study Verbal and Numerical reasoning at any level of engineering.
There are three section in GATE paper for paper codes – AE, AG, BT, CE, CH, CS, EC, EE, IN, ME, MN, MT, PI, TF and XE and two sections in GATE paper for paper codes – AR, CY, EY, GG, MA, PH, ST and XL. You can start preparation for engineering mathematics from your first year of engineering.
Here I am providing a list of books for almost all engineering and technology streams. You can refer Gate 2022 books section for getting complete list of books for GATE 2022 preparation of particular subject.
