LAST TIME PREPARATION TIPS FOR GATE 2017

  • GATE Exam is not looking for any syllabus completion from the candidate. A good understanding of the basic concepts and their application is required.
  • Preparation time for GATE depends on many factors, such as individual’s aptitude, A clear understanding of the underlying concepts is a must since the questions asked in GATE exam will test the level and depth of understanding of concepts
  • As a thumb rule, while solving any GATE problem, if the solution takes more than 8 steps, u must re-look at the approach. (Generally GATE problems are not lengthy).
  • While solving the problem, students must have balance between speed & accuracy.
  • As all subjects don’t have equal marks, few subjects are preferred over others
  • Preparation time for GATE is subjective and depends on the so many factors such as individual’s aptitude, fundamentals, attitude, concentration level etc., Typically, a rigorous preparation of 4-6 months is considered good enough for getting into IISc or IITs.
  • Create a timetable for study of topics and follow it strictly. While studying any topic, make sure to highlight important points like key definitions, equations, derivations, theorems, laws, etc
  • Keep a check on your performance; it is compulsory to directly jump upon the previous GATE question on the topic you just finished. You can try to solve some examples in model papers also.
  • Any problem can be tackled in number of ways. So being innovative and intuitive also helps to reach the correct option quickly. This means, it is not at all compulsory to solve question in typical way. Practice comes handy to solve questions quicker so that the balance time can be utilized in some really thought provoking questions (all few questions fall in this category).
  • You should have done sufficient study/ discussion, so that the moment you start reading the question you should have an intuition on whether you can solve it. One way, is to read multiple books on the same subjects, especially for subjects of your interest or the thrust portion in GATE exam pattern. Also, to support your study with some self notes is good idea. This helps in final revisions.
  • While preparing always keep your goal in thought and fancy being in the place like top institutes wherever you want to have admission. Always remember “You can get, if you really want”. So positive mind is the key. Mild tension can be helpful to have kind of motivation or a sense of duty.  But you should avoid thoughts of loosing which can cause loss of concentration and low performance.
  • In the last days of preparation, if you have any doubts about any topic/formula, you can have a look on these sections. Always remember, more doubts lead to more concept building.
  • Leave all the books few days before the exam. Have some good time and relax.
