Preparation

GATE syllabus is such designed to measure a student’s concept of comprehension and problem solving ability. In today’s date when engineering colleges have mushroomed in every part of the country, a common yardstick to measure such skills only GATE exam. Thus, Public Sector Companies (PSUs) have also decided to recruit fresh candidates through GATE exam only.

The GATE syllabus also tests candidate’s time management and aptitude. Keeping this in mind, scholarships in Junior Research Fellowships is awarded to those who excel in GATE exam. It is imperative to note that the CSIR JRF scholarships are critical to one’s career advancement.

GATE scoring tips
