Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 11th Dec, 2019


see gate is a really a difficult exam, and if you dont have real interest in it you can not crack it, and it may be really difficult to do job in IT sector and continue preparing for gate. however some students make it possible, but right now less than 2 month left, and now joining in IT sector is not a good option and you may not get any job right now, because a job hunting is not easy. exam will be on february, do your best and if you think that you can not do any better next time, then search for IT job after the gate exam.
