I am a first year student of Mechanical engineering, pls advice me something for the welfare of my future, like which coding language is beneficial for me, what should do to prepare for Gate etc

Vundela Vidya Sree Student Expert 13th Oct, 2019
Hello Ayush!!
If you want Core jobs then you have to concentrate on CAD/CAM, Solid works, Ansys, etc softwares To get software jobs you should have coding knowledge on C, C++, Java, Python, Oracle etc languages.
To prepare for GATE you should be strong in your core subjects like Machine Design, Thermal, Production Technology, Heat Transfer, Strength of Material, Engineering Mechanics and some more subjects. Prepare for GATE from 1st year itself. There's going to be high competition. So to withstand the competition you should prepare well for the exam.
Prepare a schedule and on daily basis prepare for GATE exam by preparing a proper and effective tine table. Then there won't br neeed of any coaching if your self preparation is effective and good.
Good Luck!!

Sir I have already applied for gate exam I have done a mistake in application my marks list I can forgot seal and sign with department.. I can fill it again. It takes to photo of seal and sign of my college

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 12th Oct, 2019

Dear Shaik, the last date to fill in GATE online application was closed on October 5th along with the late fees. You cannot fill in another application. Now there are 2 things to it. Check the Status of your application. Login to the GOAPS website with your login details and check the Status. If it says either "Approved" or "Completed" then you will not need the seal and signature of the document. Or else, if the Status says "Under Scrutiny", wait until the application is checked. If they need anything that needs to be corrected, they will reach out to you through the registered email or mobile no# and you can make the changes accordingly during the correction window or by the timeline they would give you. IIT Delhi will open the correction window tentatively during the 4th week of October and then you can make the changes to your application.
