Number of Students Appeared In GATE 2011

Number of student appeared in some completive exam gives an idea of level of competition that exam has. It also give an understanding that how much effort is need to stay in top. Usually students look for this information. I posted the number of students appeared in GATE 2010 and now this post. This is presented as GATE 2012 preparation guide. Do check other useful articles there.

You can easily figure out a significant increase in the number of students taking the GATE and probably the same number or more will be taking GATE exam in 2012 too. Last year I tried to figure out number of seats in IITs for M.Tech . All these will help you to understand the level of focus and determination GATE 2012 is asking from you. An important thing, these numbers are not to scare, just to have an idea about how much sincerity one need to prepare.

These figures are not to scare you. They are presented just to make you aware of the fact that you have a big task ahead to take on. If you waste time watching movies, sleeping, enjoying roaming in streets, having fun with family members, enjoying your biking and wasting time just remember there are people who are giving their best to be best in GATE. Eventually best and highly determined deserve to reach the best places in the nation, I guess those are IITs.

Giving best possible try is what makes you happy on the day of GATE 2012 results will be announced. All you missed during the year will not look you like a miss. All friends and new friends will come to life and don’t forget they are trying to make better movies next year and we can wait for them I guess πŸ˜€
