GATE Preparation for Mechanical Engineering
Aspirants willing to work hard and study well might be stuck with a question “How to prepare for GATE Mechanical Engineering?”. To provide answers to this question, various preparation tips covering the syllabus, books, and other strategies are mentioned below.
Make a schedule - The first step towards planning a preparation strategy is to make a schedule of what topics to cover and when to cover. The next important and difficult step is to stick to that schedule which requires a huge amount of motivation and dedication. Ensure that the schedule prepares includes a little bit of play (relaxation time) rather than having all work.
Get familiar with the syllabus - Go through the syllabus before starting with your preparation to get a better understanding of how to proceed with the preparation. The syllabus of the previous year is mentioned in the table below:

Practise Mock Tests- Practise the questions by attempting the mock tests. You can also go through the sample papers and previous years’ question papers for more practise. Practising will help to figure out the strengths and weaknesses so that you can work on them to boost up the preparation.
Revise all the concepts- Revision and more revision will make your preparation better. Keep revising all the concepts and important topics and questions. Make handy notes for the last minute revision.
Time Management - Studying every topic well is important but is not enough. Time management skills are required to implement the learnt knowledge well in the exam to score better.
Relax and give your best - Try to give your best while preparing as well as while attempting the exam but don’t stress yourself much. Keep calm and relax. Stressing out will make it worse. Try to stay calm for a better attempt at the paper.

Questions related to GATE
Which college should I choose for Civil between MIT Manipal and VIT vellore considering the fact that I want to pursue MTech from an IIT via GATE so not interested in placements, only internships and knowledge? (I dont wanna face such strict rules at VIT but also dont wanna get involved in drugs)
If you are looking for good knowledge and internships you should look at the following criteria.
1. MIT takes in relatively lower number of students which means smaller batch sizes and thus more individual focus on students. MIT also has a more transparent admission procedure.
2. There is not a lot of course flexibility in Manipal, you'll have to take a fixed number of courses regardless.
3. VIT and MIT both give the students an opportunity under DAAD scholarship. VIT also has 'a semester in abroad' programme where the students can spend one semester abroad for their coursework.
VIT offer better abroad opportunities in comparison with MIT. MIT has more flexible rules and regulations.
The fee structure of VIT vellore is also lower.
Now, that I have stated the facts, the decision is up to you. Getting influenced by substances is an up to an individual. Staying away from harmful behaviour is not dependent on the college you go.
Hope this helps
My gate score is 319 in civil Engg. Can I get any branch in DTU??
Specifically in civil engineering a lots of students have appeared in gate exam. So we can't predict anything by just looking into the pervious year cutoff. I think you will get a admission call from DTU by looking into previous year cutoff, but can't be assured that same trend of score will be followed this year. For more information you can refer the link below:-
There are 50-50 chances/possibilities to get a seat in DTU or not in Civil Engineering.
I have done my under graduation(Bsc hons) in maths hons from Delhi University.can I join iist for masters in maths after clearing gate cut off?
You can join IIEST Shibpur for M.Sc. in Mathematics by giving IIT JAM exam. Gate exam is for students who want to pursue M.tech in IIT and NITs. But for Science subjects you can join IIT and NIT through IIT JAM exam. Hope it is helpful.
My brother got GATE Score of 741 with AIR 380 for MTech CSE in general category. Which IIT can he expect?

Hello am a chemical engineering student 6th sem from private college .I am very tensed as i am not getting a proper roadmap for my carreer from my teachers and friend circle. please help me related internships,jobs ,exams,offline gate coachings i would be very thankful for ur answers
Hey aspirant, There are many career options in chemical engineering. I will mention some important ones. First is working in a core company. This will helps you to get an idea wheather you really like this field. Some of core companies in India are oil and gas, fmcg, pharmaceutical ect. Foreign companies come to India and hire are reliance, vedantha, HUL, pidilite, TATA chemichals etc. You will get an annual incom of 8-12Lack.
Next one is public sector. To get into public sector you need to clear the exam GATE. Based on score selection process take place. Last year cut off was 25.3 for chemical engineering in general category. 22.7 OBC, 17.8 in SC/ ST. You need to really work hard to secure good marks in GATE.
Career in research is also a good option. If you are interested in academic research this is the best option. You can do research in IIT madras, ISC or in privet companies as research assistant. This will give enough research experience which provide vital role in getting admission in foreign universities.
Next option is higher studies. Mtech, ms or phd in India or abroad.
Last if you're stuck in chemical engineering, you want to get out of this, you can go for data analysis. Companies like KPMG, deloitte hire chemical engineers for this job.
These are some of the options after chemical engineering. Select one and follow your passion.
