GATE Preparation

GATE 2012 Preparation Guide

In 2011, I launched a first GATE preparation to support with all the information needed for a student to crack GATE apart from technical guide. Covered almost all the topics and lead the whole guide till last minutes to the GATE exam. I hope that helped many students to find right information and motivation in one place.

Time has moved so fast, looks like few days before I was writing posts related to GATE 2011 and now realized that the time has come to start writing for GATE 2012. Just to share with you all the post GATE 2011: A complete preparation guide was read over a million times in 2011. It covered many topics needed for students to understand GATE exam and M.Tech admissions. In 2012 I would like make an effort with a better approach towards GATE preparation. In the GATE preparation guide I will not only cover GATE 2011 details but also concentrate on motivational letter to keep you in track and stay focused with GATE 2012 goal.

This Guide will include the following topics and more topics will be added as and then information available. To get a motivational letter and information updates I would recommend every reader to subscribe by email and also one can like Inspire n Ignite on facebook for updates on facebook profiles.

    Sir, Being an ece gate qualified student in the general category, i find that only about 550-600 seats are available in ec core subjects (like vlsi or communications) in IITs+NITs put together. pls advice me y i shud pursue a career in “the most demanding branch of tech” having got a rank of only 2800(Calculator says 98%ile) in ece this year.

    yes.. isn’t it a dark reality that 1,37,000+ people attempted 2011 Gate exam in ece but hardly 600(General category)+660(reservations) odd get any respectable outcome?

    (The seat matrix in most colleges read : total 20 seats per specialisation; 9: general seats, 1: physically handicapped, 5: OBC, 3: SC, 2: ST. and 2-3 specializations per college for ece )(Average)

    If not core, Lower Nits offer mainly max 5 lac p.a. salary. Today as we all know,average passouts get offered 4lac p.a. salary, which in 2 years with the minimum of smartness/competence can grow to 5 lac pa salary (Networking is it not?)

    In 2009 44k students took gate xam in ece, in 2010 :100k nd now in 2011: 137k. what is the attractiveness of writing GATE for such a vast growing number of students except for a fear of onslaught of another global recession?

    is there no value addition for the other 99%ile of people that Attempt GATE ?

    I agree there are slightly more seats to ‘respectability’ than i mentioned.. also there are options such as M.S nd Non stipendary nd yada yada… but still, GATE just makes fools out of our Student Population. just my opinion (:
