How To Plan GATE Mechanical (ME) Preparation

Starting to plan & prepare 3-4 months prior to actual GATE Mechanical (ME) examIf you have left with 3-4 months in hand, it would be best to plan & prepare for GATE Mechanical (ME) Exam using the bottoms-up approach. Start with solving GATE Mechanical (ME) section tests and Mocks of Career Avenues course and not with theory. Whichever questions you are not able to answer / understand, read up theory only on those topics.
Starting to plan & prepare 6-8 months prior to actual GATE Mechanical (ME) exam (typically students who start in 7 semester)When you have 6-8 months in hand, plan a schedule of 4-5 months with 2-3 weeks per GATE Mechanical (ME) subject. Make sure that after every 2 GATE Mechanical (ME) subjects, you keep 1 week free for practice tests.
For each subject, study the subject from Career Avenues theory material and solve the questions in the book.
After finishing 2 subjects, answer the online section tests from Career Avenues test series. Do this for 4-5 months. After finishing all subjects, revise all subjects (1 per week) and keep taking 1-2 Mocks each week.
Starting to plan & prepare 10-18 months prior to actual GATE Mechanical (ME) exam (typically students who start in 5th or 6th semester)When you have 10-18 months in hand, this is the best time to plan & prepare for GATE Mechanical (ME) seriously. Choose GATE Mechanical (ME) subjects that you have studied upto 4th semester in your college first. For each subject, study the subject from Career Avenues theory material and solve the questions in the book. Do this for 3-4 months.
Do not answer section tests or Mocks now.
Now choose subjects from 5th, 6th and 7th semester of your college. For each subject, study the subject from Career Avenues theory material and solve the questions in the book. Do this for 3-4 months.
You are ready now for tests and revision.
Start solving online section tests and Mocks of Career Avenues course. Whichever questions you are not able to answer / understand, go back to theory booklets and once again read up theory only on those topics.
Taken GATE Mechanical (ME) in the past but did not plan & prepare seriously earlierThis is as good as “NO preparation”. So start from scratch. Choose study plan based on how much months you still have for GATE Mechanical (ME) Exam. Use one of the above 3 study plans.
