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
The GATE syllabus is clearly defined by the IITs and IISC. Before beginning your preparation, take a clear note of the complete syllabus as defined the GATE 2018 syllabus. After you have decided upon the paper you wish to appear for, check out the syllabus for that particular paper only. Those topics that you have studied in graduation but are not in GATE syllabus can be left out.
Practice previous year question papers and know where you lack. Gain confidence by studying extensively topics marked in the GATE syllabus and keeping a check on your strengths and weaknesses.
