Practice makes a man perfect 

Practice regularly to solve the problems and clear the doubts. It is rightly said that perfection comes out of practice. Take help of GATE previous year questions to practice regularly to polish your preparation. Solving mock papers and sample papers will provide an additional help. The number of questions solved by you will directly be proportional to the results achieved.

Time is money

Time management is the key to success. Time is precious and once it is lost it would never be found again. Time management skills are must while preparing for any exam. It is important to devote your time to all the important topics. In the exam hall also, managing time is as important as knowing the answers. Working hard day and night is required but giving time to yourself to relax your brain and body is a necessity. 

Impossible itself says, “I M (am) Possible”

Nothing is impossible if your hard work combines with dedication and efforts. Do not let yourself get demotivated. Feed yourself with spoons of motivation as a positive attitude is an advantageous tip for the preparation of GATE 2019 Instrumental Engineering. Do not lose hope even if you find it difficult to cope up sometimes. Destress yourself whenever required.

Success Mantras from Toppers
