How to Prepare for GATE in Last Week

Revision is a Must

During the final week, one of the best ways to do last minute preparations for GATE 2020 is revision. Try to regularly revise whatever has been studied to keep it afresh. It is best to allot a specific time everyday specifically for revision. Do not try to learn new concepts during the last week and try to spend more time in revising and making the already studied topics and units from the syllabus of GATE 2020 stronger so that marks can be obtained during the examination time.

Say No to New Topics

During the final week before GATE 2020 is conducted, do not try to study new topics and concepts. This may lead to confusion and result in tension and loss of confidence. Keep away from new concepts and revise those topics and concepts which have already been studied and in which you have confidence.

Focus on Numerical Problems

As per GATE exam pattern, the exam will consist of many questions which will require numerical calculations. These types of questions will be quite time consuming. It is advised that the practice of numerical questions should be done on a frequent basis. This will make you familiar with these type of questions and also help you in revising formulas and concepts for the examination.

Remember Formulas and Important Points

Formulas are an integral part of the GATE syllabus for the examination. Almost all of the concepts consist of formulas which have to be studied and remembered. Note down all of the formulas separately for constant revision along with the important points. This will help in securing a good score in the examination since the formulas will be well versed and remembered.

Take Help from Experts

Whenever you feel a bit less motivated or are stuck on how to strategize your last week plan, you can take advice from someone who has already been in your shoes. Connect with people who have attempted and qualified GATE during the earlier years through social media. Asking them for advice and preparation tips will certainly boost your studies. This will also add on to your confidence since you will be hearing first hand experience from someone who has gone through the same process. Along with this, you can also ask GATE experts and try to get your doubts clarified.

Stay Motivated and Healthy

Do Not Stress! These are the golden words for the final week before attempting GATE 2020. Being stressed will lead to anxiety which is not good during preparation for any examination. Try to get as much sleep as possible and lead a healthy lifestyle. Include some light exercises in between study sessions to maintain focus and relaxation.
