Hello everyone , I am deepanshu sharma. Maybe your senior in gate preparation and other things. I got notification 1 hour back about someone added some comment on some conversation in gate overflow. So I checked the platform and many memories came back ( though the interface is all new now ). I am going to share my experience about gate and other things.

I  appeared for gate exam in 2019.  At that time I bought ravindra Babu ravula sir course ( i see his video now on YouTube ,he is completely different man now dunno what happened .) So i studied from that course for basics and for every doubt every thing that I can't understand I have the best platform known as Gate overflow. In college I didn't study that much or you can say only studied day before exam due to fun reasons so Gate was a challange to me. But there was very much help from gateoverflow regarding many questions and other things. Then I attempted Gate exam 2019 ( i am passout from college in 2018) i vividly remember the exam day that exam was simple as compared to previous year. So I was very happy after giving paper like I will scored 60+ marks any case. But then life happened , and i scored 52 marks .

Then the story starts of selecting a college . I don't know about situation right now. But at that time these 52 marks were very tricky marks . You can't get best college but also not the worst college. So I started finding college, long story short I didn't find the right one for me. Because i prepared for 60+ marks anyday and due to silly mistakes I got 52 marks and then I left Gate side because exam was happening after a year and I was afraid if this type of silly mistakes happen again then next year will be waste.

So what happened after gate 2019? I remember now in July, August month , i left this side and then started looking after other options. At last I went to banking side. Then after 5-6 months, 2020 corona happens. Again long story short , I cleared many exams after that horrible time of Corona. I cleared sbi po, ibps po , every other test which was in banking. But not getting selected in interview. Then I worked for STATE BANK Of INDIA assistant manager for three months. Again left that job due to some reasons, started preparing for RBI and other exams. Not getting selected in RBI due 1.5 marks. Now at last I am working as ADMINISTRATOR OFFICER in NEW INDIA ASSURANCE ( MINISTRY of FINANCE) 😌😌.

My story was not about gate or banking or any other exam.

It was a view of life from 25 years old person right now. I know that time I didn't get college that I want so much and frustration and then corona. I was thinking that my life was utterly wasted. But at last things works in my favour. So point is do hardwork as much as you can do , also enjoy life but also form a habit of  hardwork in your life. You will clear any exam in your life that you set your mind to. Don't be lazy , never be lazy ( although I am writing this post hiding under blanket, but I think you got my point) .

Just work hard in your life ,you will almost get 80-90% of things in life. Also enjoy life 😌😌 Be active in life. Thankyou and have a nice day.

 

PS - As you have seen from scores above , i am completely normal student. Who loves playing cricket and football more than studying.If i can become something, you all can become much more than me

Why you do not get any placement

@Deepanshu Thank you for sharing your experience. As you have rightly said GATE is just one way in life and not the only way. And GATE preparation is a lot about aptitude and problem solving which can help a lot in other exams too (for those who really did problem solving and not mugged up given solutions). Once this is realized the undue pressure of exam goes away.

@GateCse Yes sir , exactly what I am trying to say. People often forget this problem solving means hard work part importance in life. This skill is for lifetime. People just want shortcut which will destroy them sooner or later. Learn basics even you fail you will pass somewhere else

@shivanshair1gate2024I was never interested in placement or private sector.

My only motive to do MTECH was to become professor in some college after that.

@Deepanshu I have to disagree there regarding "Indian private sector work". Obviously it depends on the company. But companies like AMD, Qualcomm, Intel etc are very good to work at. Pay is good, work culture is good and even state of the art development work happens there and not just support work of US teams.

@gatecse Sir , I know you are correct. I just said above lines about private sector after seeing my some friends or even family members. My cousin brother is on call right now with his team in next room πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ ( time right now 9:40pm)

There are many good companies .But I never know about them that much or you can say I didn't have proper guidance about good companies test etc.

I make above assumptions after seeing my surroundings only πŸ€—πŸ€—.

yes, that's fine. But saying so in a public forum like here can cause trouble for others. For example, you can see "Software engineers excuse" in some of the matrimonial ads these days.
