GATE Preparation

GATE 2013 Prepration Guide

GATE exam became over competitive and slowly M.Tech is becoming an essential degree because of many reasons. More Competition means cracking GATE needs more accurate information and more focused preparation. Most of the students spend a great amount of time searching for right information about GATE exam itself. To help students I decided to write a GATE preparation Guide since 2010. Almost for two years I prepared very helpful and successful guides for students. For details please refer to GATE preparation guide for 2011 and 2012.

During 2013 I would like give more comprehensive information and would focus on GATE toppers interviews and tips apart from all other information. The notification for GATE 2013 is not yet announced but students really serious would start preparation plans and searching for right information.

This guide would help you in staying focused all over the year till you finish your M.Tech admissions. I am with other members trying hard to give you best possible information from all sources. If you are preparing for GATE 2013 don’t forget to subscribe and like inspire n ignite on facebook by which you get all updates timely.

The following topics would be covered in GATE 2013 preparation guide.

    Dear Sir,
    I am trying for the gate from last 2 years, I attempted GATE-2011 and got qualified with Average ranking and score as i am unable to apply for the IIT’s and NIT’s.
    After that, went for job and doing now too. As my GATE score will be expired this year.
    Now i want to pursue for M.Tech in IIT’s or NIT’s only, so can you guide how can go with the Study. As previously i went through the coaching, but it helped to clear the gate exam only, But i want to reach some what higher, some what greater the position what i am now. Now i am working as Software Developer, have good impression in the company as one of the good developer. But still i am not satisfied with the day to day work what i am doing. I want to do more worthy work, than now.
    As i tried to study during the daily, but i got so much work in office as i am getting tired up, so i unable to study more.
    So as per my condition what you want me to suggest…?
    As my brother and family members are supporting for my higher study as they asking me to drop the job and go for the full time preparation, but i am getting fear as in previous attempt i failed to grab the college what i require.
    So can you give me some guidance for my present condition.
    Thank you..

  65. kavya

    1. TecGyan

      You can only take GATE in your final year. Prefinal year students are not allowed to appear in the GATE examination…..
      Enjoy the college life. Just have focus on English and Aptitude specifically along with your subjects…..:)

    2. abdulmanan

      No, you can’t because now it is scheduled that least qualification is 7th den to be eligible for the gate which previously was 5th den.

    3. sasi

      no kavya u can’t attempt gate 2013 as it is eligible for those who were in final year and and those who completed. no prefinal year student is allowed to write the exam
