Core factors while Preparing for GATE
Before four months to GATE pre plan your studies for the exam.
Every paper covers more than 10 subjects in GATE and so one or two months is not sufficient.
If you are having only one or two months then let me say that it’s quite impossible.
Begin your preparation with known subject where you have good knowledge on it.
Use your study time only for preparing relevant topics of GATE syllabus and not for preparing the whole book.
Waste your time in subjects that you don’t know much about.
You need know the concepts of a difficult subject in order to prepare.
It is better if you choose a subject that is medium difficulty for you and is also an important subject in GATE.
Don’t: Start the preparation with a tough subject.
Also, studying a very easy subject means you waste lot of time on it in the beginning, which is plain foolish.
Time is the only thing in your hands and first you should allot enough time to study for the GATE exam. Here are some 5 top tips to improve your perfomce during gate exams.
Students will have to do accurate analysis of the GATE syllabus.
For instance find the subjects, topics in each subject and select the order of subjects for preparation.
In case you already have good knowledge in computer science then it shall take only 3 months for the GATE preparation.
Now, if you are in the final year for graduation, then it might take more time.
Use the time right from the the beginning of your final year to graduation and use a minimum of 2 hours for the preparation of GATE
Some exams you can use one book to the maximum.
For GATE exam, the syllabus might be in such a manner that for a few subjects all the topics may not be present in one text book.
Sometimes this one book may not have enough information about a particular subject.
Therefore, use two books to cover all the important topics and information. Always buy and use books with good standards and quality.
Don’t- Choose just one book.
Don’t: Buy or use bad quality books.
A little mistake can lower your GATE rank.
These are of three kinds like standard books, institute and online resources.
In good coaching institute materials, there is content that is related to your syllabus. This might help you but this might not be enough.
Textbooks have lot of information use it when you have lot of time.
Online resources have lot of material, hence choose relevant high quality material.
Use their quizzes and other preparatory material available to help you practice regularly.
Not everyone needs the help of a coaching institute for GATE preparation.
You can self-study if you use the above plan wisely using the correct study material.
Sometimes you might need a guide to study when you have no clue, and for that you can still join a GATE coaching institute. Here are some tips to choose the best GATE coaching center in Kerala
