My rank in gate 2018 is 14. My normalized marks is 86.38 and my gate score is 945..

What was your routine while preparing for the exam and how much time did you took to cover your syllabus?.

It took me around 6 months to prepare for gate. I used to pick up the subject which is running in the class. Along with it I used to revise one more subject.

Revision is must for gate because you have to reproduce whatever you have studied in those three hours of exam time. you must have sound knowledge of every basic concepts and you must have 1500 formulae on your tips to succeed.

Remember to make formula copy of your own. One common mistakes that students do is they just mug up the formula without going deep for each and every symbol in formulae. learn the practical applications by solving as much questions as you can. Practice mock tests more and more..  

Books you followed during preparation?

I used to follow my coaching notes, question booklets, previous years question papers and mock tests. Along with it, I have downloaded different coaching notes from because from just one notes, you cant cover each and every concepts. Try to cover as many types of questions as you can.

Because you are a topper this year so everyone wants to know how much time you devote for this exam? 

I advise all the juniors that you have enough time. start from basics. join two or three test series. Give part syllabus basic tests during preparation of a particular subject. In last one and a Half month, do as much full syllabus tests as you can. See yourself where you stand in the competition.

Try to improve your mistake. Avoid repeating the same mistakes. Do practice on gate scientific calculator.
