  • The most efficient way to solve a paper is to reduce the negative marking. Attempt only those questions first that make you feel confident. Trying to attempt all is a common mistake that leads to an increase in negative marking.
  • Keep the GATE syllabus in hand and then go through the graduation subjects else you will end up beating around the bush. Solve as many questions as possible.
  • Though the non-technical part of the paper is comparatively less, it still holds a considerable amount of importance and weightage.
  • Take the help of various resources like books, magazines, videos, etc. Search for previous year question papers online and try solving them. In the case of any doubts, seek help from family, friends or teachers.
  • Group study is one of the best ideas for increasing the effectiveness of your practice. Each member of the group can take up different topics or subjects and explain that to the rest. In this way, time management issues are resolved, and everybody can solve more number of questions.
