Dear Fellow Mates,
I will be sitting for GATE and TIFR both this year. I don't have much clue about TIFR but I have looked up about it on their site and know the rules, syllabus for the exams. I would just like to know a few more things.
1. I love working on research and hence working hard to clear GATE. But suppose one gets TIFR and he choses to do Integrated MSc - PhD course in Computer Science which extends to a period of 6 years I suppose. What are the future opportunities and Placements?
2. How to prepare for TIFR?
My approach: Since my primary aim is GATE so I will complete GATE syllabus only and upto what I have seen the syllabus correlates to that of TIFR if not more. I would like to know what subjects are difficult and which ares should be more stressed. I am sure that Algorithms, TOC and DS would be a part of it and I am prepareing them very well. How to prepare for the math section well. I already have the GATEOverflow book and I follow it.
Any extra advice? I left my job last month and started preparing for GATE 2017 from the start of this month but according to my schedule I will be able to finish studying the subjects and watch lectures by November end. I know I will not have enough time for practice which I will have for GATE and hence would like to ask for your expert advice.
