The Gateway to Computer Science Excellence

Schedule for GATE2020

The schedule followed in GO Classroom for GATE 2019

Please see here for GO Book for GATECSE 2019

Advantages of following this schedule:

  1. It is not the only good schedule possible but is one schedule where subject dependencies are met 
  2. You can ask any doubt from the topics already covered in the schedule here with the tag go-classroom and those will be answered with priority
  3. Preparation materials including reference links are provided on GO classroom as per the schedule
  4. Even if you are joining late, you can adjust your schedule accordingly - most assignments in GO classroom will allow late submissions and this schedule is expected to be over by November end.

Go pdf launching date?

plz tell this pdf launching date ??? waiting for pdf
I am unable to enroll for the probability course. It shows the course is unavailable. Has the course not started yet or are there some prerequisites?
Last week was break. Probability started this week only. Schedule is updated and GO classroom also. Probability PDF is also uploaded which is a must read.
@Arjun sir as this is my second attempt, so I am good with most of the subjects. By the end of Sep I'll complete CS subjects and will start with GO pdf solving and GO assignments. Wil I get the optimal code (after submission) written by anyone once I start doing those coding assignments to improve my code?
Second attempt doesnt mean you are strong in subjects :) Most people think the same and hence do not improve.

And yes, we will upload the solutions.

yes sir TRUE... working on it :). But this time I completed the syllabus according to Hopefully I'll be able to perform efficiently this time. :)


Thank you.

can you please tell .Are last 3 lecture of SHAI's TOC course worth watching and the RECITATION part?
