The schedule followed by GATE Overflow for GATECSE 2022

Please do not listen to what random people say about the schedule. This is a relaxed one and so you should not keep any topics for later thinking you have time. 

GATE Overflow Test Series for GATE 2022

Schedule of Tests

Advantages of following this schedule:

  1. It is not the only good schedule possible but is one schedule where subject dependencies are met 
  2. Schedule organized into 4 modules:
    1. First 6 weeks covering aptitude and discrete mathematics fundamentals – most important
    2. Next 6 weeks covering a bit of hardware, programming and computer architecture – builds a good system level knowledge
    3. Next 6 weeks covering more theoretical subjects, probability and OS – building the base of Intelligent Systems
    4. Final 6 weeks to finish DBMS, Operating Systems, Computer Networks and Compiler Design 
  3. This schedule is tied to GATE Overflow Test series – subject tests will be added as per the schedule
  4. Preparation materials including reference links are provided on GO classroom (free for everyone) as per the schedule – to access GO classroom just create a new account on the home page of it and subscribe manually to each course
  5. Even if you are joining late, you can adjust your schedule accordingly - most assignments in GO classroom will allow late submissions and this schedule will be over by November end.
  6. Extra points to be followed will be updated here.
  7. GATE CSE Subject page should be used for the subject resources (will be updated as per schedule) and GO classroom has assignments in extra.

Why engineering mathematics and D's algo are kept for last as they need to be cover as early as possible.
Are they last?
what is closed book revision ?
Revising the learned concepts in mind without seeing the book. This is usually followed by students while traveling (those having long travels) or even otherwise at home.
Most of the resource link are not working in classroom.

@mk_007 Can you paste the non working links here?

Sir please keep updating the spreadsheet with links to tests for us
Hello @gatecse, If I want to take some other subjects test first then what should I do? Is there any link from where I can get GATE2021 test series for those subjects if GATE 2022 series test will be added later.
2021 tests are no longer live. So tests can be taken only as per schedule or any date afterwards.
@Arjun sir, could you please grant access to 2021 tests until PGEE exam? It is on 3rd July
2021 tests are already deleted.
Why can't I see any exam links? I should at least see Aptitude and Discrete Maths exam links right?
Means you have registered for 2022?
Yes. I have registered. I should see the links of all subjects from 1 - 28 June right?

EDIT: I got the links in google docs. Sorry for the trouble
In this schedule for each subject we have to do

1) Learn Theory and make notes

2) Solve all PYQ from GO pdf for that subject

3) Give subject tests.

Is this the order ? I mean it takes lots of time to solve all PYQ. I feel if I do one subject theory then all PYQ and repeat then I have some fear that i might have less time or left some subject's topics.

 

Is it good idea to first learn all theory of all subjects then revise then start solving PYQ and at the end give tests ?

I know PYQ are more important than tests.

 

Seniors, please help me which should be the order ?

Any suggestions will help me to decide the plan.

P.S. : I don't know why my previous comment was disappeared. So, writing again.

It completely depends on you. The most important use must be for verifying the answers of previous year GATE questions which you must have solved yourself. Then to ask and clear your doubts while reading standard sources. Also, please ask questions as a question and not as a blog post...

This is good that you are tying to prepare your GATE exam for excellent result but if you want to perform better then i suggest you should go for your branch releted books study from it seriously.

I am saying this because GATE is what, GATE is like mixture of all the semesters. So take easy steps gain all the knowledge about the basics. If your basic concept is stronge then you can beat anything...

Many students skip the basic things and start adopting hard things. They think like "What the hell is this. That's a easy qus ,This qus can't come in examination" and they start reading hardest things. and from my personal experience if your basic knowledge is stronge then you can easily solve are the hardest qus. So try to improve your basic knowledge about any lesson or any subject....

 

 Some tips for future GATE aspirants:

Finish your syllabus thoroughly as soon as possible. (lays the foundation). Make sure you are strong in basics, no need to waste time on advanced topics, just adhere to the syllabus (most important). Never compare your marks with your friends.

Never compare Test Series marks with Actual Exam. Do not ignore aptitude and Maths if possible do it as early as possible. Do not leave any subject. Don’t go into too much depth of any subject. Be regular in your studies. Study for neither 15 hrs nor 0 hrs in a day....

 Revise as much as you can – first revision after 7 days, second after 14-15 days of the first revision, then after a month, and then monthly.

Learn, Test, Analyze & Improve. Sleep for 8hrs/day.

Be prepare for everything. What I mean is don't assume that your paper will be easy or tough. Give lots of mock tests and analyze them properly. Analyze each test properly by checking all mistakes and unsolved questions.

Make a notebook of your all mistakes and categorized mistakes as Silly, Conceptual, or typing mistakes. Leave substitution, elimination, etc. methods for the Final exam...

Do not practice them in mock tests. Don’t follow any topper’s advice blindly (not even mine). Prepare your own notes. Remember “All late nights and early mornings will pay off”....

 

To all GATE aspirants, NEVER UNDERESTIMATE your ability to succeed.

Remember to LEARN, TEST, ANALYZE & IMPROVE....
