The Gateway to Computer Science Excellence

Remember the guy who gave up ?

Neither does anybody else !


If you are feeling worried then let me congratulate you because you are having brilliant experience and after GATE you will have a proud and satisfactory smile while remembering these days. You are worried because you prepared well.

Anyway, It is quite normal to feel tensed but it should not affect your studies. Almost everyone feel worried and become sad, now difference lies in how long it takes to get back to study- 1hr, 2hrs, 1 day or 2 days ?. The less time you take the less rank you get :).

  • Let me tell you something that you already know, Suppose you close your all books and stop studying right away, will this make your rank better ? No right !

         -Be positive and manage your time.


  • Some of you might have already taken decision for preparing next year, but in between of  GATE exam and GATE result, you will be having hell lot of time to decide anything, you can also do family planning meanwhile . Lets not waste this time for useless thoughts, It is time to revise and not a time to seek excuses for why u cant get it done.

         -Be smart enough to avoid pointless thoughts 


  • Your most of the preparation is already over Now you can boost your marks with +5, +7 or even +10 by properly revising everything that you studied so far. You can do previous year GATE questions again, this is what i think best way to revise (that's the way I did). [Doing questions doesnt mean how fast you get answer, you should learn underlying concepts].

         - Revision is Important.


  • When you attempt any mock test and could not get a question solved, but by seeing solution you get it. Do you see what happened in test ? You just did not apply concepts that you already knew.

         - The way you think about questions matters, Improve thinking approach with more practice


There might be few topics in that you are not not comfortable with, I suggest you to not pay much attention to those few topics, just learn basics so that u dont skip easy scoring questions.

Never be Overconfident or Underconfident while attempting paper but you should be confident enough, If you prepared honestly then no matter what paper comes you will definitely get good score, If you prepared honestly and if a question is tough for you then it is definitely tough for many others. Trust me If you know concepts well then you will get a nice rank.

Dont leave Engineering Maths, It is easy and scoring (I did 2 easy questions wrong in exam hence i know the value)

I went through this time, I know how it feels but it is all worth remembering now, and I still cherish my GATE memories.  (If it can make you feel good then I was feeling underconfident one week before exam and I posted on fb too  - see screenshot)


Trust yourself, Keep calm and revise.
