For those of you who have taken admission into NITs/IIITs and prepared for GATE, I would like to ask you a few questions :
A) How would you estimate the work load from the colleges in case of NITs ?
Roughly how many hours on daily basis is required ?
In a rough sense how hectic was it for you to manage NITs(M.tech) course load and GATE prep ?
Do the work load vary drastically from the courses enrolled (i.e Information security work load vs CSE work load vs software engg. work load etc.)
B) Do all NITs + college under CCMT provide on-campus, hostels + Internet for M.Tech students ?
(you might laugh at this one but , I am in one such college where M.Tech guys don't live on-campus , hence the question .)
In your own experience , what where the factors which you think can hinder someone's preparation for GATE , while simultaneously doing M. Tech from NITs/IIITs ?
Do we need to refund the fees if someone leaves the M.Tech degree in the middle ?
Sharing your experience of preparing for GATE while simultaneously doing Masters from some colleges, might help many of us to make better and informed decision .
