So, are you ready to give it ALL?

Hi, There are many people here preparing to be in Top 100 or even better. Of course if you are preparing for GATE you should not think below that. GATE is not a difficult exam to get to top 100. So, let me tell somethings I have seen over last 2 years. Most ... get to IITM MS/Ph.D. But this does not mean one with rank say 400 can get it. Research interviews are different from an objective exam.

I assume you are in General Category and up to 1500 rank one can expect an interview call for MS Research. With new IITs this might go even lower. One more thing is for research admissions, at many places there might not be a GATE cutoff and based on resume - (CGPA in ... seniors if needed. Then aim for scoring 80+ in the exam. This is possible and if you can do the needed, you can surely repeat.

GATE is one exam where your result is not entirely proportional to the "no. of hours you put in". Some of you might be in final years and giving GATE with hardly any preparation. But based on previous year stats I can say that a good percentage of top 200 will be ... definitely do well in GATE. Just focusing on these small points can make sure that you do not miss out on vital marks. Good luck!!!

GATE is in two days. I would advise you to take enough rest and keep the mind healthy. If you are worried about forgetting stuffs -- nothing to worry; hardly any question in GATE will require that. While writing GATE never gets tensed. I'm not wishing anyone to get "easy" questions ... at a time and do. If you do not make any mistakes you surely won't have any regrets in the end. All the best :)

First of all not even questions are out, so we never know our exact marks. Still if you have attempted less than 35 questions there is less chance of IITs in open merit. So what next? Soon coaching institutes will start new batches to attract you There are other exams ... Only if you are ready to do this, go for repeat. Simply repeating whatever you did last time for more hours won't be enough.

There are a lot of failures in GATE. 100s of people in top 1000 in GATE prepared by self and approximately 3000 CSE students are in the top 2 GATE coaching centers for CSE alone (contributing about 200-400 in top 1000) and about 4000+ in online courses ( ... your comfort level - this is fine if the comfort level covers >95% of the questions. Otherwise, please switch to some other exam preparation.

Are you preparing well? Except a very few most would not say "yes" to this. Some people are very confident with their concepts and most others are in tension. So what to do? My advise - Take a day break. Do whatever that makes you happy. And after this think for sometime ... my third blog. I just wanted to say these for a long time. Hope I have said everything now. All the best for GATE 2017 :)
