I also gave GATE in 2021 in my final year of B.Sc. but didn’t qualify and ended up with 23 marks. It was expected because I didn’t prepare and just went to give the exam to taste it. Later after giving the exam, I came to know about the opportunities of the exam and really got mesmerized as this single exam can give me so much opportunities in the field of Computer Science and can make me an IITian. In my school days I didn’t even know about IITs much because at that time neither I have a smartphone nor I have access to internet. So, I went to do B.Sc. which generally most of the students took in my school. Later I knew much more about the IITs and the opportunities it provides but being a B.Sc. student there is only one path to enter in an IIT is to give GATE exam after M.Sc. because there is no JAM exam for CS people.

I decided to appear for GATE seriously with proper preparation somewhere around December 2021 after passing out B.Sc., and started doing self-study but didn't actually start preparing rigorously until March 2022. I exactly remember that I had started my gate preparation exactly on 1st March 2022 as I enrolled in an online coaching to prepare seriously for it. And completed my whole syllabus in November end. This takes so much time because I was involved in college curriculum also to secure good marks there. In my gate journey there was a lot of ups and downs and sometimes I also thought to give up in October-November because of the pressure but thank God that I didn’t and continue the preparation till the last day.

The one thing I have learned that solving various types of questions are equally important to understanding the core concepts. I only solved 20 years previous year questions and coaching workbook but didn’t solve the workbook completely as my main focus is on PYQs. And I can ensure that you will learn more while solving the questions rather than learning the concepts. And i call tell you the Gateoverflow answers are the best and so many coaching materials also taken the answers form GO. I personally liked @Sachin Mittals sir’s answers they clears lots of ambiguity and clear the concepts.

My preparation journey is like a roller coaster really. When I decided to enroll in coaching, I also decided to give tuition to local students in my village so that I can bear my own coaching expenses. From March to September, I continued with my tuition and form September, I left them completely as it was becoming impossible for me to manage college, gate preparation and tuition altogether. I used to give tuition to local kids in the early morning then go to college and after returning back from college I used to prepare for gate throughout evening and night.

From 20th September after my 2nd semester exam had ended, I took my preparation to the highest priority. Till now I finished all the topics with PYQs except DM, DLD and EM. I decided to finish them asap and also solved the PYQs again of the completed subjects parallelly. I think that was the best decision I took in my preparation because revision is the most important thing in any preparation. From 20th September to November End, I completed the whole syllabus and solved the PYQs 2 times and also gave topic wise and subject wise tests of the subjects that I was revising in parallel. And the most surprisingly I didn’t sit for the campus placements at that time as my main target throughout the year was to cracking gate.

Now at the time of October I sat for UGC NET exam and also cracked it with Junior Research Fellow which give me also some boost and confidence.

Now the month of December came and the pressure was above the neck as only 2 months are remaining. I started giving full length tests and in my first full length test I scored 47.66 marks and after rectifying and revision it went in the range of 55-60 and sometimes above 60 but I was not able to score more than 60 continuously. At that time, I also remember that I used to go to college which is 2.30 hours of distance from my home and while going and returning I used to revise my short notes in the bus and train. It was a little uncomfortable but I was no option because I had to crack the exam by hook or cook. But I managed to minimize the silly mistakes over the time but didn’t able to completely remove it. And it the final GATE Exam I also have -1.67 negative marks which costs me a lot also did only one bad silly mistake in the DLD question the answer came 001 and I tick the answer 100 which is really a blunder and cost me 2.66 marks. But I would say “Jo mila bohot acchahi mila hai.”

I solved all PYQs and attempted many tests but still I was not getting very good marks in Full syllabus tests of Made Easy (50-60 marks). And the problem was I didn’t know the reason behind those less marks, due to which I was unable to improve my marks further. Now the month of January came the last and the final month and my test scores were in that range only. Then I again solve all the star mark PYQs of all the subjects and continue it till the last week. I solved the PYQs of each subject at least 3 times and for COA it was more than 4 times as there were some concepts which were asked many times as it was in the PYQs. Which improved the marks  and i stick to the cycle of Revesion-Practice-Analyse. And my range of marks increases gradually in 65-70 region and in the last mock test which i take 6 days before the exam i got 69.I take two test series but  i only focus on ME test series for FMTs.

On the last day I went to sleep at about 10 PM and wake up at 4.30 AM to get ready because my exam centre was 2 hours of distance and I had to go using the public transport. I was feeling like the next day was my semester exam and not the GATE exam. I was relaxed and had no fear of the GATE exam. Really this is what happens with me don’t know how I kept my mind so cool at that day. But it was a blessing in disguise really for me.

Now the D-Day comes on 4th February the GATE exam day. On the GATE exam day, I went to the centre with in time of reporting and if I felt some anxiety, I used to say“avoid avoid” in my mind and it made me feel relaxed. At about 8.45AM, I sat Infront of my allotted computer and the just keep saying one thing in my mind repeatedly that “I can do it, I will do it.” This helps me a lot to remove distractions and other thoughts in my mind.

Then exactly at 9.30 AM the exam started and the 3 hour exam feel like 3 minutes to me really. And thank God that my computer works well during the exam and there was no problem at all.

After the GATE exam was over, I called my friends after returning to home and we have a conversation about the type of questions asked all that and said to my parents that I did my best “Ab jo hoga dekha jayega”. And finally, the result is out and my rank is 239 with marks 68.33.

I know this is not a very good rank. But it is a pretty decent rank to get into the top 7 IITs. And behind this rank there was a great contribution of my Teachers and mentor @Vishal Burnwal and the GO community. So now I can say one thing that having a good mentor besides your preparation is necessary to prepare at whoever he/she might be, so that you can identify and correct the mistakes during the preparation.

The only thing I can say to future aspirants that whatever might be the situation do not give up and fight till the end if you can handle the pressure and the preparation you can do many wonders in the upcoming days. Really keep in mind that Gate is a life changing exam so do your best no matter what but also keep in mind that this is not the only exam to change your life. I also want to say you to keep the following points to increase your chances to crack the exam,

1. Learn the Basic concepts clearly and take time if you don’t understand some topics in the first go.

2. Don’t take aptitude lightly i scored only 11.67 in aptitude section of GATE :(

2. Solve the PYQs after completing each topic. They are the real questions that were set by the IIT professors. If you stuck at some question, simply check the solutions from GateOverflow. Use them for revise your concepts and understanding in the last 2-3 months.

3. Make short notes of each subject literally that will help you a lot in the last 2 months.

4. Attempt the topic wise and subject wise tests as early as possible in parallel and then focus on the Full length tests. Give at least 20 FMTs if possible.

5. In the last 3-4 months leave every thing behind and give the preparation the highest priority. This time will be the rank changer time for you. I had never attended any family functions, festivals and not even watched a single movie in the last 6 months of preparation except the day before the exam.

6. And finally on the D-Day keep yourself as calm as you can because whatsoever is your preparation in the whole year if you mess up this single day your hard work of 365 days will be gone in vain.

This is my first Blog actually don’t know how i write it but my main motive behind this Blog is to express my gratitude to GO and to document my journey.

My name is Aakash Bhardwaj, and this blog is about my life in the last three years. I was non-serious at the time of JEE prepration, and I assumed IITs were the same as other colleges, so I didn't prepare for JEE much. I was admitted to a tier 3 college, and within one year of college, I realized the value of IITs. During 2nd year, I started wondering about various options, which was when I came to know about GATE. In 3rd year, precisely the 6th semester, I started preparing for GATE 2021 and enrolled in the Ravidrababu Ravula sir's course. Ravi sir taught very well, and there was a considerable difference between what I learned in college and what sir taught. Everything was going well, and I was pulling 7-8 hrs per day and managing my college altogether.

In GATE 2021, the pattern changed, and there were two examination shifts. IITB also introduced multiple select questions. Due to COVID, semester exams that were supposed to get over in the Last week of December got postponed and went till the first week of Feb. Practical exams clashed with GATE. The GATE exam was on 14 Feb, and one day before the exam, I was in college for practical exams. I had very high expectations on exam day, but I had hardly read anything in the last 30 days. My exam slot was 2-5 pm, I went for the exam, and I almost gave up within an hour and started guessing the answers instead of solving the questions. Ultimately, I got 35 marks.

So I had two options: to go for another attempt or join TCS. I decided on another shot. Firstly, I analyzed my mistakes in GATE2021. Which were

• Solved very few PYQs
• Very less practice.
• Poor in-depth knowledge of subjects like TOC, DM, COA, and DBMS

So, just after GATE 2021, I started preparation and had access to MadeEasy Prime lectures. I took subject by subject, made thorough revisions, and referred MadeEasy classes for weekly topics. In this way, I have completed DS, Algo, CD, COA, DLD, CN, and OS by May end. In June, I enrolled in the Gateoverflow and MadeEasy test series and started attempting tests(Topic-wise and subject-wise tests) on every alternative day. I analyzed every test properly. In parallel, I started learning discrete maths from Satish Yadav sir and TOC from Deepak Poonia sir(GOCLASSESS was just launched then). I have completed all subjects till September, including solving PYQs twice.

In October, I started giving full-length test series. I have attempted almost 30+ full-length tests from various test series on alternative days. In Made Easy test series, my lowest marks were 58, and my highest was 82 (I got 68+ in most tests). In the Gateoverflow test series, I attempted three full-length tests with scores of 56,61, and 59. In the ACE test series, I got 70+ on most of the Attempted tests.

But, 20 days before the exam, I got covid positive, suffered from extreme symptoms, and took almost 7-8 days to recover partially and get back to studies. And this was when I got the news that my grandfather had expired. Throughout the lockdown, I used to study in the room next to my grandfather's room. It seemed that GOD was against me, and I was utterly lost. And guess what? I failed in GATE again!!.

I planned everything, completed the syllabus on time, solved every PYQ, attempted the Test series with proper analysis, solved foreign university assignments, and still got a rank of 3500. GATE 2022 was bigger than a failure for me. I was depressed and stressed. Thanks to Satish sir and my parents for helping me at this time. My failure portfolio didn't stop here.

After this, I attempted PGEE. I was on the waiting list but didn't secure a seat. In BARC, I got 130, and the cutoff was 134; hence, I was not shortlisted. In CPCL, I got 80/120. There was only one seat for UR, and I am from the General category, so I again failed(CPCL did not disclose the cutoff). Somehow, I started revision and attempted the HPCL exam after one month. I got 126 marks, and the UR cutoff was 130. I was very close to the threshold, but I still failed.

In the meantime, I got job offers from TCS, INFOSYS and IOPEX, but the salary was too low. I also got an MTech admission offer at IIIT Delhi (non-gate) and BITS Pilani(Goa campus). NPCI(national payments corporation of India) also offered me a job opportunity. IITs and PSUs were my dreams, and I gave my 100% to achieve my goal. It was difficult for me to satisfy at a bare minimum.

I am not motivated to go for another attempt at GATE, and it is still being determined when ISRO will hire through the ICRB exam or when NIELIT will recruit. Considering everything, I decided to go to Australia for higher studies. I got admission to CDU, Darwin(Australia), and this is probably my last week in India.

So yes, this was my hustle and my gate journey. People say, "Luck favors those who work hard," but I doubt it!!

I would especially like to thank Deepak sir for the unique content for TOC and brilliant answers on Gateoverflow. Thanks to Satish sir for teaching me and helping me in tough times. My parents supported me throughout the journey. I remember when my mom used to watch Ranayan on muted audio because I was studying then, so thanks for the blessings and constant support they have been for me. A special thanks to Kirti Soni and Himanshu Kumar for solving my irritating doubts.

Hello everyone, as the GATE exam is only 15 days away, it's important to focus on key things that will help you to perform well. Here are some tips for you to consider:

• Revise every topic that you have studied so far. This is crucial as it will refresh your memory and help you to identify any areas where you may need to focus more. Make sure to give special attention to the topics you are struggling with.
• Give at least one full-length test every day until the end of January. This will help you to get used to the format of the exam and identify any areas where you may need to improve.
• Do not try to study any new topics now. GATE is not a test where you need to score 100 marks, and in the past, no one has ever scored 100 marks. Therefore, it's important to focus on revising the topics you have already studied.
• One thing that I would like to add is that you should not give mock tests at home. Instead, try to give the test at a friend's house or in a cyber café. This will give you a better idea of what the real exam will feel like, as the environment and ambiance at home is different from the real examination.
• When giving mock test, focus on your silly mistakes that you do in exams, note it down somewhere and read this silly mistakes before giving the next mock test. By doing so, you will be able to identify and fix common mistakes that you make during the exam.

Stay calm and focused on the day of the exam. A positive attitude is key to success. Overall, the key to success in the GATE exam is to revise thoroughly, practice regularly, and stay calm and focused on the day of the exam. Good luck!
