Last Minute Preparation Tips & Tricks for GATE Exam
Revise all the formulas Don't try to cram formulas, try to understand the concepts so that you don't feel pressured during exam time. Do not spend all your time on just one aspect of the GATE Aptitude Syllabus. Keep switching between different subjects.
Practice Mock Test After solving full mock tests, analyze your mistakes and solve the whole paper again. This will be a kind of revision for you. If you get stuck while solving the paper, don't look at the solution, try to remember it and if you can't remember, go for the solution.
Practice The Use of a Virtual calculatorIn the GATE exam, you’ll be provided the virtual calculator which is a bit difficult to use. It’s important for a candidate to practice using the virtual calculator or it will make problem-solving very difficult.
Be Relaxed, Cool & CalmBefore the day of the examination just keep yourself cool & relaxed. Don't try to study everything & don’t start a new concept at the last minute instead have a look at formulae and equations to get some idea of the problems.
