GATE Preparation Tips for ECE
Aspirants might be leaving no stone unturned in their preparation and to help them polish their preparation we have come up with the preparation tips for GATE ECE. From mentioning the syllabus to tips to release the stress, we have got the students covered. Mentioned below are the tips to prepare for GATE 2021 for ECE branch.
Plan the strategy - The first and foremost step is to prepare a well planned strategy and schedule. Aspirants must ensure that they have allotted time accordingly. They must also make sure that there is time for relaxation also in the busy study schedule.
Know the syllabus well - Studying anything and everything will go in vain if the student is not familiar with the syllabus of the exam for the particular course. Going through the GATE syllabus of Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) before starting the preparation is a necessary step for a better preparation for GATE 2021.
Books are the best friends - Refer from the good books related to the syllabus. Always remember that one good book is equal to ten friends.
Cover all the topics - Aspirants must make sure that they have covered all the topics while preparing for the exam. Skipping any topic while preparing with the thought that it could be covered at the last moment will not be of any help.
Practise is the key to success - Once all the topics are covered, practise by giving the mock tests. Candidates can also practice from previous years’ exam papers and sample papers. It must be kept in mind that practice makes a man perfect and thus practise will help in achieving the desired results.
Revision - After covering everything revise it again and keep revising till the topics and basic concepts are on the fingertips.
Don’t stress yourself - Apart from studying and practising everything it is equally important to keep your mind calm. Relax and don’t put too much exertion and stress on yourself.

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.
