by Material2Success, 03-Feb-20 09:47:43 PM

‘Fail’ is such a negative word to say or hear. It can make a person feel very desolate and unmotivated. Having failed in an exam, especially one which is as important as the GATE exam can be very heartbreaking. This is because most students spend years and years preparing for it!

If you have failed your GATE exam, you might feel disappointed in yourself and even angry at the time and efforts you put into it. However, it is not good to let this disappointment dictate your life! In the end, failing an exam does not imply that your entire life has ended!

You must try to overcome all the challenges in your way and turn all the negative energy around you into a positive and motivational thing.

7 Ways to Deal with Bad AIR in GATE Exam?

Here are ways to deal with the setback that you suffered by failing your GATE exam!

  • Analyze your Situation-  Feeling awful about what has been done in the past will do you no good for your future. Therefore, you must try to analyze your situation and find out your best course of action. Think about what options are open to you for your future. Are you willing to wait for next year to give your GATE exams again?
    Or do you wish to move on and try something else? Doing so will help you a lot in figuring out what course of action you can and should take! Another thing you need to analyze is what areas you lack in, where your errors lie and how to overcome them.
  • Create A Good Routine – Your lifestyle contributes a lot to your success as well to your failures. Make sure that you build a new routine and follow it diligently. Doing so will help heal your mind and heart after failing your GATE exam. Try to incorporate healthy habits into your routine and also those activities that make you happy, be it playing a sport, gym, listening to music, dancing or creative activity.
    All these things can help reduce your depressive thoughts and make you see your future in a better life! The more motivated you are, the better your chancing of improving!
  • Do Not Compare Yourself with Others – Others making comparisons of you with others is as it is very annoying. Do not start doing it yourself too! Comparing yourself with others always proves to be extremely disheartening. Refrain from doing so even if your friends and cousins have managed to clear the GATE exam. Instead, try to focus on making yourself better.
    Keep away all the salty thoughts and improve your habits and knowledge so that you can yourself pass the exam if you attempt it the next time.
  • Take Advise from an Experienced Person- Look around you and you will find a number of examples and inspirations. Try talking to someone who has previously been in your situation and managed to succeed later! Seeking their advice will help you understand how to improve your approach for the exam.Also, talk to someone who managed to clear their GATE exam in their very first try! They will be your inspirations who can help motivate you to go better!
  • Take Some Time Off – If you think that your failure means that you should stop living your life, well that’s where you are very wrong! Failing your GATE exam might have nothing to do with the number of efforts you put into preparing for it, but with the approach with which you prepared for it!Therefore, try to stop putting the blame on yourself and take some time off to relax and freshen your mind. This will help you to get started again with a clear and fresh mind and rejuvenate your senses!
  • Open Up to Your Family – Your family is undoubtedly your backbone. Therefore, at times when you are feeling low, their support and encouragement can help lift your spirits! Make sure you do not put yourself in a shell and be reserved about your concerns and decisions!Discuss with them everything that is going on in your mind regarding your future plans, your current feelings and everything else! Their guidance and advice can help you in a way in which nothing else can!
  • Be Open to Opportunities – It is often said that once an opportunity is lost, it remains lost forever. Therefore, make sure you do not restrict your choices and open yourself up to as many opportunities and exposures as possible. You do not know what might be best for you!Therefore, while preparing for your GATE exam, start looking up other competitive exams that you can give or other projects and jobs that you can take part in! By grabbing the opportunity while it is still at hand can make your entire life turn, for the better!

GATE 2020 : STRATEGY : read once

by Material2Success, 28-Sep-19 07:26:13 PM


GATE has become comparatively easy after change in pattern to online
format. Number of students has increased drastically and hence
competition is very high now. In GATE you cannot expect a good rank
(Below 500) if you are scoring below 80 marks. You can see rank and
marks trend from previous year’s results. Many PSU are now recruiting
through GATE and hence if any aspirant wants to get placed in PSU only.
GATE is option except PSU who are taking separate exam. 

So what should be strategy to crack GATE 2020 ??

Should an aspirant research on each topic of syllabus ??

Should an aspirant read book page by page ??

Should an aspirant go to Delhi and take coaching and then only top GATE
rank possible ??

Should an aspirant take online coaching and then only top GATE rank
possible ??

So many questions in mind of aspirants and all questions want one answer
how to get top GATE rank. Here I am sharing strategy of GATE based on
my experience of preparation and through this strategy I could get Rank
35 in GATE 2018.

1) Prepare from standard books and read books by seeing topics in
syllabus of GATE. You don’t have to research on topic. GATE doesn’t want
you to be a researcher. For research you can do M.Tech or Phd. So keep
this in mind and prepare.

2) To know how question can be framed from a topic of syllabus see
previous year’s papers. Similar questions are framed again and again from
same topics so you should know what to read and what not to read.

3) Solve previous year’s papers as many times (Minimum 3 times). When I
say solve previous year’s papers it means that you should read each
question well and try to know concept involved behind each question.
Make notes of difficult concept you find and also make note of formulae
used in question. Some concept are very easy so you can avoid making
note of that.

4) Make your notes subject-wise / or refer made easy notes so that you
can revise easily. You can use A4 paper to make notes. Mark pages serial
wise to make a sequence of notes. Click here to buy Made Easy Notes

5) When exam is near start solving test series. Mistake which aspirant
make is that they don’t note down mistake they do in test series and do
same mistakes again in GATE.

6) GATE doesn’t ask proofs so know how the formulae is derived and
assumptions involved while deriving formulae. No need to learn complete
proof step by step.

7) When you have a doubt in answer of question you can Google the topic
and read more. Internet is best source when it comes to gaining

8) Avoid wasting too much time on Facebook/whatsapp study groups.

9) Preparing for GATE using online coaching is not something which I
support as online coaching’s are not at so good level as compared to offline
coaching’s. Use Facebook after self-study and ask your doubts and solve
question over groups. No need of online coaching when you have internet
as your friend.

10) Self-study is best to crack GATE and if you need a coaching then offline
coaching is best rather than online coaching ( I don’t support any coaching
and I cracked GATE by self-preparation)

11) In last month of preparation just revise your notes and attempt test
series and learn from your mistakes. Avoid reading or downloading too many
PDF and not reading them all.

12) All topics are important. There is concept of important subjects now
in GATE as you have to score above 80 to get a good rank. This is
possible with selective preparation.
