GATE 2021 CSE Preparation
Students preparing for GATE 2021 and looking for the answers to the question “How to prepare for GATE CSE?” might get their answers here, mentioned below.
Start an early preparation - With ample of time left for the attempt, it is advised to start the preparation as early as possible to ensure that there is enough time to cover all the topics as well as revise everything again and again.
Plan a Schedule - Make a study timetable and plan your schedule. It must be remembered that planning is of no help until it is executed so, make sure that you stick to your timetable and schedule accordingly.
Handy Notes- Make notes side by side while studying as it will prove to be very helpful in the later stages of preparation for doing the revision.
Mock Tests - Practise as many mock tests as possible as it will not only give you an idea about the exam pattern but also it will help you in recognizing your weak areas so that you could work on them to score better.
Time Management - Just having the knowledge of every topic would not be enough. It is necessary to learn to implement that knowledge and being able to attempt the question paper within the stipulated time.
Revise - Revise and keep revising till everything is on the fingertips.
Syllabus - Get familiar with the syllabus to ensure that all the topics are covered and nothing is skipped from studying. Knowing the syllabus will also help in planning the schedule.
Stay away from distractions - Maintain an appropriate distance from everything which could act as a distraction in your preparation.There is no place for distraction in the journey of preparation towards success.
Don’t get nervous - Give your hundred percent while preparing but do not get stressed on the day of the exam. Stay calm and do not be nervous.

Questions related to GATE
It is mentioned in your blog that we should register for appgcet counelling to get the admission for m.tech through gate score in state level govt colleges.can you please let me know how to register for appgcet counselling.
Dear Aspirant, thank you for following our blog. Commencement for Counselling of AP PGCET 2020, will be in the month of June 2020. Do keep a regular check on the official website, for updated information. https://sche.ap.gov.in/pgecet/PGECET/PGECET_HomePage.aspx
I hope this helps you!
Now I am in final year of graduation in ECE branch of B.tech. Can you suggest me some free/low price and good online coaching for Gate 2021?
see graduate aptitude test in engineering is the entrance exam for admission in mtech courses in iits, nits, iiits, and other tier 1 institute, also PSUs and maharatna companies in India hires engineers through gate score. so you may understand the level of the exam, in YouTube you may find various lectures but you can generally follows genique education, gate academy lectures, there is several institute providing gate coaching, but you can not only rely on coaching institute, you need to self study a lot and must devoted most of the time in practicing numerical questions, thats how you may achieve a good rank and score.
My score in gate is 377 may I know which is best nit I can get seat in
great work by scoring such a good marks but you have to share more details like your stream, year of completion of graduation and caste so that we can filter the options and give you the best possible answer.
Please provide all the information and help us serve you better.
You can always use our gate college predictor to have a better understanding.

Thank you,I hope it helps.
MY GATE SCORE IS 403 IN MECH GATE PAPER.CAN I GET ANY STREAM IN NIT TRICHY AND I BELONG TO OBC
NIT trichy cutoff for GATE in mechanical engineering as per previous year cutoff is for Industrial Safety Engineering is 743-714 and for Thermal Power Engineering is 784-785 and thus you ave no chances of getting NIT trichy try for lower nits and other good colleges.
