GATE 2023: The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is one of the most important and difficult national entrance exams to crack. Students are required to take the GATE exam which is conducted online/computer-based, to gain entrance to postgraduate and doctoral degree programmes at prestigious engineering universities like IITs, CSIR grants, and PSU employment.

The GATE exam is jointly conducted by the seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in Bengaluru. GATE 2023 is going to be conducted by IIT Kanpur. For GATE 2023, official authorities expect a significant number of applicants, which include students from the first year, third year, final year, and graduates from the previous year. Each year, lakhs of engineering aspirants go the extra mile to crack GATE.

With GATE 2023 scheduled to be conducted on February 4, 5, 11, and 12, 2023, candidates are left with only a few months to prepare for this exam.

Let's have a look at the 5 easy steps to prepare for this exam below.

1) CREATE A STUDY SCHEDULE TO TRACK PREPARATION PROGRESS

Once the candidate has gone through the GATE syllabus, it is necessary to devise a schedule so that they can dedicate time to all the subjects. A good schedule will make it easier to keep track of daily, weekly, and monthly activities.

It will also help monitor progress and keep the candidate focussed and well organised. A schedule gives a sense of direction to achieve the set goals and targets.

2) IDENTIFY STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES

It is crucial for candidates to identify the subjects that they are good at and the subjects that they are weak in as this would allow them to prioritise their time accordingly. Students should focus on maximising the probability of increasing their GATE score. Building on their strengths and sailing through their weaknesses can be a good strategy to prepare for this exam.

3) PREPARE FROM THE BEST BOOKS AND STUDY MATERIAL

It is very important for candidates to extensively research and identify the right study material before they begin their preparations. They can choose to prepare from either their undergraduate course books, online video lectures, or coaching notes. Numerous books and other study materials to prepare for GATE, like sample questions, are readily available on the market and it depends on the candidates to identify the best ones to prepare from.

4) REVISE AND CLARIFY DOUBTS

While preparing for an important exam like GATE 2023, it is normal for candidates to have various doubts. These questions well in advance by asking teachers and experts and also by discussing amongst friends. There is no point in waiting till the penultimate moment and feeling unconfident.

Candidates must also develop a habit of regularly revising the topic or an entire chapter so that they feel more confident about the exam preparation and also help retain the information under the pressure of the exam day.

5) TAKE SHORT BREAKS AS A STRESS RELIEVER

Anxiety is one thing that many candidates underestimate. This can happen when they are feeling the stress and pressure of the exam day nearing or when they are overexerting themselves to be better prepared. Putting in the effort to be prepared is absolutely necessary, but it is also important for students to take a breather once in a while. Doing so not only refreshes the mind but also allows the student to recollect what they have been studying.
