    Thumbs up Re: Guide me to write the GATE exam while pursuing Civil Engineering third year? How to prepare for this on my own?

    Hello Friend

    GATE ( Graduate Aptitude Test In Engineering ) is the common entrance exam conducted All India wide for the entrance into P.G ( M.Tech ) program in India's top colleges.
    It is considered as one of the toughest examination in India as many young aspirants go for the written exam.

    GATE qualification is the minimum requirement for awarding various fellowships by different government organizations. So dude in my view getting a rank in GATE is easy which requires preparation and skill for solving questions.

    Pre final year year students are not eligible for GATE examination , but if you want to crack GATE examination a scheduled preparation is necessary from 3rd year Onwards.

    Here i am giving you some important steps , follow it and prepare well.

    1. you must have interest at first before start your preparation and you must have dedication in preparation , you must leave all other duties and concentrate on you studies once the preparation is started.

    2. Firstly you prepare your daily time table with all subjects covering as least possible as you can , no need to study the whole chapter in a day. set the time for each subject for eg 2hrs per subject and stick to it till the completion of your syllabus of every subject.

    3. Daily before start reading the new topic revise the previous topic once that you have read before , if you go on like this at the last day of your preparation you will be having grip from the first chapter in each subject.

    4. solve as many question papers as you can this will improve your grasping ability and also decreases your time in solving the questions which is an important criteria to crack GATE ,
    as GATE exam is mainly based on time management.

    5. Do your revision as many times as possible till the exam date for GATE because GATE rank comes to those who had done hard work but not for the Intelligent person. Even if you are good at your subject you cannot get a GATE rank without hard work as GATE mainly test your applying skills.

    6. dude you need not study each and every topic into great depth , GATE do not want weather you have read subject completely or not rather they ask questions from merely basics that are in each and every chapter. They want to test weather you are good at your basics or not and weather you are in a position to apply your basic knowledge.

    Finally dude i suggest that getting GATE rank is easy which requires hard work try to solve as many previous papers as you can so that you will be getting an idea how the pattern of questions are coming and hoe they are asking on which topic they are stressing.

    For any further information leave your message here.

    REGARDS and All The Best.

    "before appearing in gate you should clear about your vision if you are technically well sound and interested in technical field you can choose gate as your target..to prepare for gate you should just prepare your subject in detail of gate syllabus..for that you shoud refer standard book of that particular subject and make all the concept clear..gate is basically divided in three part technical relelated to your subject & numerical aptitude & english. to prepare you have to increase your vocabulary power for that you should read english news paper daily & numerical is based on logic you can answer it by your thinking and logical power but it requires proper practice...
    as you say you are in 3rd year so you just focus on your current sem & with that cover atleast your 4 old subject...& before 2 months of gate exam you can prepare for MCQ and old gate paper..... to get gate material you can ask your teacheror your seniour or you can use net....
    i hope you will be satisfied with my this information...all d best.."

    Re: Guide me to write the GATE exam while pursuing Civil Engineering third year? How to prepare for this on my own?

    * Always read the subjects by posing questions "what", "how" and "why".
    * Always stress to analyse the things by working out in a paper.
    * Follow standard text books, read the concepts, understand them, think about how they would be useful and can be applied practically.
    * read two different subjects in parallel so that you wont feel bored.
    * don worry about your previous percentages in university exams too.. they are entirely different ball games altogether.
    * if you have good basics, understanding and application then you will definitely succeed in gate exams..
    so ALL THE BEST BOY!!!! KEEP GOING!!!

    Hi Buddy
    You can't write GATE in 2012 - Because, there is no eligibility to write GATE for pre-final year students from this year.
    This is because the IIT's have decided that not to maintain any core competency and to reduce the redundancy and to give the full focus on GATE for the final year students.

    But, You have a long time (Almost 1year more) to prepare and to give GATE 2013 with full pace and focus.
    So, Start from now only to crack good rank in GATE.

    Details of GATE:
    # GATE - Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering is the entrance exam which is conducted by IIT'S every year to take admissions into top colleges if you get a good rank.
    # This time the GATE is on Feb'12th 2012.
    # You have to apply only through ONLINE.
    # It consists of 65 questions with negative marking and you will be having 3hrs.duration.

    Eligibility for GATE::
    # Bachelor degree holders in Engineering/ Technology/ Architecture (4 years after 10+2)
    ## Master degree holders in any branch of Science/ Mathematics/ Statistics/ Computer Applications or equivalent and those who are in the final or pre-final year of such programmes.
    ## Candidates in the second or higher year of the Four-year Integrated Master degree programme (Post-B.Sc.) in Engineering/ Technology or in the third or higher year of Five-year Integrated Master degree programme and Dual Degree programme in Engineering/ Technology.
    ## Second and third year MCA students are eligible for GATE.
    ## First and Second year MSc students are eligible for GATE.

    As you are not eligible this year to write GATE, So I am greatly interested to give you some tips and Strategies to Crack a good rank in GATE.
    Tips to Crack a good rank in GATE:
    * Discuss Quality of questions
    * Collection of quality books
    * Uniqueness in the study material
    * Solve previous years GATE papers more often

    * Analyze
    * Revise as much as possible

    Strategies to get good rank in GATE:
    # Buy the Previous year question papers(Atleast 10years papers) with solutions(if possible)..
    # Make high priority to high scoring subjects like Maths or your Core Subjects.
    # Maintain a good Time management table..
    # Make short notes from the Text books..
    # Once you finish studying 1 chapter then go and solve the prev.year questions related to chapter 1..
    # Finish detailed reading at least one and half month before.
    # Keep one month for revisions and clearing leftover doubts.
    # Keep last 15 days for fast practice and revision. Solve as many papers and question banks as you can get from any source.
    # Finally the following Four Factors will surely help you to crack the GATE in IIT's

    Re: Guide me to write the GATE exam while pursuing Civil Engineering third year? How to prepare for this on my own?

    First yu need to apply for the gate exam... Coming to the prapartion you have to concentrate more on GATE to get seat in IIT's.... you are going to have gate exam on february month so you have to start your prepartion 3months before or 4months before...... orelse you can go for coaching as you have many coachin centres as you have many coaching centres..... it is a 7month coaching......so it is lil difficult for you to concentrate on gate as you need to ocncentrate on yopu btech also.... so you have to be very carefull.... you have to concentrate on each and every subject....you need to be good in mathematics and yur core subjects.....

    GATE stands for Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering which is conducted for Engineers or Graduates for taking an admission into PG called M'tech course .

    Guidelines for Preparing for GATE Examination :

    ~ Firstly before start Preparation for this , once you refer Previous Years GATE Question Papers .

    ~Try to solve those Questions , by doing this you will come to know in which you are lagging by subject and in which you are updated , so that you can prepare more on those topics in which you are lagged back .

    ~ Download the Syllabus for this Examination and start working on that .

    ~ After a glance on the syllabus , you prepare a Schedule of your own depending on your time management .

    ~ Be serious on your SCHEDULE and work on it every day .

    ~ Daily Preparation is very good , in order to secure a good rank .

    ~ Have a good knowledge on your Core subjects .

    ~ Concentrate more on Logic based Questions , because most of the questions are based on Logics .

    ~ Collect GATE books from Libraries or Stationary and keep working on them .
