Steps to Crack GATE in Your First Attempt

Step 1: Make a Study Schedule to Track Your GATE 2019 Preparation: After going through the GATE syllabus, making a proper study plan is a good idea to begin your GATE 2019 preparation. A good study schedule:

  • Enables you to keep a consistent track of daily, weekly and monthly activities.
  • Helps you monitor your progress.
  • Keeps you focused and well organized.
  • Gives you a sense of direction to achieve your set goals and targets.

Step 2: Find Your Strengths and Weakness to Boost GATE 2019 Preparation: After making a GATE study plan, the second step is crucial for GATE preparation in order to understand your strengths and weaknesses. Being good in one subject might not necessarily mean that you may be good in other subjects too. In such a scenario, you must focus on how you can maximize the probability of increasing your GATE score. Building on your strengths and sailing through the weaknesses can be the best GATE 2019 exam strategy you can follow.

Step 3: Use Top-notch Preparation Books & Study Material for GATE 2019 Preparation: It is essential to do extensive research and select the right study material before you even begin your GATE preparation. You can either choose to prepare from the undergraduate course books, online video lectures, course material or coaching notes. GATE preparation books and GATE study material are easily available in the market but you must know what to pick to prepare well for the exam.

Step 4: Clarify Your Doubts and Don’t Forget to Revise: While preparing for GATE 2019, it is obvious to have doubts. So, make it a point to get all your doubts cleared well before the exam. Ask experts, teachers and also discuss with your friends so that you don’t have to wait until the day of the exam.

Also, make it a habit to regularly revise whatever you are studying, be it a small topic or an entire chapter. A regular revision:

  • Makes you more confident about your GATE preparation
  • Ensures that you do not forget anything under exam pressure on the day it is conducted.

Step 5: Keep Exam Stress At Bay: One thing that can truly make or break your exam performance is the level of your anxiety. Getting nervous in the run-up to the exam may prove to be one of the major obstacles in your GATE preparation. By creating a proper study plan, identifying your strengths and weaknesses, using relevant and standard books, and getting your doubts cleared can surely help you beat exam stress.
