hello careers360 . Im btech 3rd year IT student. my 3-1 has almost completed. And 3-2 is about to start . I want to write GATE-2021 exam .Im an average student with CGPA 6.8. Is there any least possibility that I can crack gate exam. If so could you please suggest me good coaching centre ,strategy

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 15th Dec, 2019
Hello,



Nothing is impossible in this world if you will have dedications and discipline towards your goal.
No one is an average student or brilliant students, the only difference between an average students and a brilliant students is the mindset.So, if you will have better mindset then this exam will also be easy for you.Clearing any exam requires hardwork,dedication and discipline.

First of all make a study plan and set targets for daily, weekly and monthly.
Give more importance to those topics which have more chances of having high weightage in the examination and work on your weak areas.

Having right books an sources are must for the preparation so you must have best books.You can find books for preparing from the link below

https://engineering.careers360.com/articles/how-to-prepare-for-gate

Focus on Engineering Mathematics and Aptitude Test
The following books can be referred to for Engineering Mathematics:

Engineering Mathematics by Erwin Kreyszig
Discrete Mathematics and Its Applications by Kenneth Rosen
Engineering Mathematics by BS Garewal

A good conceptual understanding will be able to help you during the examination as it will make the questions explanatory which may eventually lead to a correct answer. By having a clear understanding of the concepts, you will be able to apply the concepts accordingly to the questions and solve it instead of relying on rote memory.

Time management is the key.You have college also and you will have to take care of your health so take care of everything accordingly.

You must do revision multiple times.Analyze your preparation. After completing every mock test or solving sample papers, it is important to check and try to correct all of the wrong answers marked by you. This will ensure that you will not wrongly answer the same question next time.

can I qualify gate biotechnology with having 70 days in hand? if yes , then please explain the plan of action..

Pankhuri Kumari 14th Dec, 2019

Hii Suraj!

There nothing you can't do. Nothing is impossible. With 70 days in your hand, you can definitely qualify GATE Biotechnology if you are really dedicated. Let me tell you some tips.

* Start with knowing your syllabus precisely. And make a  strict routine ,which you ought to follow.

* Start with looking at the questions of the topic which you are going to study, and then read on the topic so that you focus on attention on those questions.

* Solve as many questions and previous year question banks as you can.

* Do smartwork besides hardwork.

* Clear your doubts on the spot and do not gather them for later.

This will help you to succeed. Hope this helps.

Good luck!
