How To Start GATE Preparation

Starting to prepare 3-4 months prior to actual GATE examIt would be best to prepare for GATE Exam using the bottoms-up approach. Start with solving GATE 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 prepare 6-8 months prior to actual GATE exam (typically students who start in 7 semester)Plan a schedule of 4-5 months with 2-3 weeks per GATE subject. Make sure that after every 2 GATE 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 prepare 10-18 months prior to actual GATE exam (typically students who start in 5th or 6th semester)This is the best time to prepare for GATE seriously. Choose GATE 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 in the past but did not 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 Exam. Use one of the above 3 study plans.
Taken GATE in the past and prepared seriously earlierIt is important to identify areas that you are strong and weak in. Make strong areas stronger while at the same time work to remove weaknesses. Contact our faculty who will help you make a personalized plan, write to info@cavgate.com
