With GATE exam almost sitting on the door, this question sure is raising in many minds.

So the Strategy is as usual. We all know how Britishers Ruled the world. The best strategy accepted by them throughout the world and a very successful one is “Divide & Rule”.

  1. Smart work

Hard work is for the skilled what smart work is for the efficient! Be efficient in a situation where you lack the most important thing “TIME” & focus on strategy, not syllabus! If you would plan to cover the whole syllabus, it would get chaotic. Working on the smart work is the nerve.


2. Work according to the weightage


The table below explains the pattern of GATE-2018,


Section Percentage
General Aptitude 15
Engineering Mathematics 15
Technical 70


Studying the table in detail, it can easily be inferred that focusing on General Aptitude & Engineering Mathematics can fetch you good 30 marks. Target currently is only to work smartly to fetch more marks in order to increase the chances of qualifying the test. So the main agenda should be to focus on these two sections.


3. Categorize the technical section

Technical section is subject specific. Agenda should be to divide this section topic-wise. List down the topics and subjects considering two facts:

  1. Subjects that you are strong in.
  2. Subjects that are high scoring.

Work just according to this list and you can be assured of good results.




4. Previous year Papers

When you are confused, previous year papers come to rescue. From getting the hint about the level of exam and covering all the important topics, previous papers add a strong base to your preparations.


5. Spend time choosing the best aid
