Hello everyone. plz suggest ...

I have completed all the subject and revise each and every subject more than thrice. i have solved all the previous year que.

1) But i am not able to score more than 45-50 marks in any of the test series (out of 10 full length test made easy, ace, gateOverflow)..

so i have analysed and i found that i am attempting 40+ que and i am able to score 45+ marks only but out of which 4-5 marks are getting negative. so total 40 marks.

and after analysis what i understand that 90 % of the que ,which are getting wrong or i am not able to solve , are from "Data structure and algorithm."

NOTE:- I am able to understand the que but not able to implement the algo..(Main problem)

so what should i do? Plz suggest. Bcoz i have 10 days remaining......

How to tackle this data structure and algo(specially)...

practise more... geeks for geeks website is good.
I am not an expert but I think at this crucial point of time just don't read blogs  , papers or books .

search on YouTube or web for animations , images and illustration which show working of algorithms and right after completing try question and analyze if you are comfortable with basic working of algos and implementation of DS and then you may try some tricky GATE question finally.

and in last few days ( 3 - 4) just revise what you have done perfectly.

 

Good Luck
Again  do all gate algorithm & DS problems only and try to revisit concept that is being implemented. Along with it also try to think how you can be fooled by other answers nearby options and how to tackle that.
I'll say do previous year questions for Data Structures again, only this time try to analyse the approach you adopt for solving the question. Do them twice. For the implementation of algorithms part, now is not the time to start learning their implementation. I'll suggest you leave this part. Do questions based on time and space complexity well. And if you want, you may cover the easy algorithms such as those based on Sorting and Dynamic Programming.

But in the last three days, revise only that part of the syllabus on which you hold a very firm grip.

All the best mate! Don't worry! You'll surely do well :)
evn if u put aside DS AND ALGO IT DOESNT MATTER weightage from them is not very heavy from few years instead revise everything once again and feel comfortable in what u r strong i dont think its time for improvement now and moreover gate DSA questions are easy compared to test series
Thanks everyone.. thanks alot..

 I have revised algo and DS . And I am able to solve some of the question. I think I was lagging due to improper revision..

But need some more advice :-

Plz tell us what should we do in last week.

#spcly revision

Or

#last year gate que (year wise or subject wise)

Or

#test_series.

Or some special tips...

NOTE :- IF THE ANS IS GIVEN BY SENIOR WHO HAVE GONE THROUGH THIS , IT WILL BE VERY HELPFUL FOR ALL OF US.. SO PLZ..

**IF POSSIBLE THEN U CAN ALSO WRITE A BLOG COVERING ALL THIS. .

THANKS ...
