## The schedule followed by GATE Overflow for GATECSE 2022

**GATE Overflow Test Series for GATE 2022**

**Schedule of Tests**

Advantages of following this schedule:

- It is not the only good schedule possible but is one schedule where subject dependencies are met
- Schedule organized into 4 modules:
- First 6 weeks covering aptitude and discrete mathematics fundamentals – most important
- Next 6 weeks covering a bit of hardware, programming and computer architecture – builds a good system level knowledge
- Next 6 weeks covering more theoretical subjects, probability and OS – building the base of Intelligent Systems
- Final 6 weeks to finish DBMS, Operating Systems, Computer Networks and Compiler Design

- This schedule is tied to GATE Overflow Test series – subject tests will be added as per the schedule
- Preparation materials including reference links are provided on GO classroom (free for everyone) as per the schedule – to access GO classroom just create a new account on the home page of it and subscribe manually to each course
- Even if you are joining late, you can adjust your schedule accordingly - most assignments in GO classroom will allow late submissions and this schedule will be over by November end.
- Extra points to be followed will be updated here.
- GATE CSE Subject page should be used for the subject resources (will be updated as per schedule) and GO classroom has assignments in extra.
