How to score high in GATE ECE exam?

  • The key to GATE preparation is consistent hard work. Study regularly for the exam. Analyse your knowledge and problem solving ability. Pick up the most appropriate books as per your present situation. The same book may not be useful for all students. Depending upon which book suits you best, do your preparation.
  • For IITs, you should aim at being in the top 1000 GATE toppers. If you are aiming for PSUs, you should aim even higher. To get a good score in the GATE exam you need to make sure that your concepts are clear.
  • Problem solving skills need to be worked upon immensely. Practice from previous year papers and solve mock tests. Time and speed both are crucial.
  • In the numerical answer type questions, your calculations must be accurate. As you do not get any options in this type of questions, the score depends completely on your understanding of the question and calculations.
  • The best GATE reference books have been listed here. Make good use of this.
