Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 15th Oct, 2019

As you are still in your 3rd year, you might not be still aware of the complete GATE syllabus. So analyse the topics and syllabus that you have learnt for the past 3 years and practise as much Mathematics as you can. Try as many mock tests as possible and get a hang of the exam pattern. Please check our page for syllabus, topics and best books for preparation:
