Ques. Did you take coaching classes? Mention their role in your story?

Ans. Oh yes! I took coaching classes. The classes were important for me. I would not have been able to make it through without the coaching classes. I am an average student but I work hard. I was able to make it through because of my consistent effort and the support that I got from my teachers. The test series were designed in such a way that I was able to work with them on a regular basis.

There were doubts clearing sessions regularly. There were several classes given for the import topics to be practiced. Our course was covered well before time and so we had the revision done in our classes itself.

Ques. How would you rate the following preparation strategy in terms of their efficiency in your story?

Ans. I would give them 4 stars if you can put it in terms of stars. The structure of the class was designed such that I could not afford to miss any class. So even if I was ill I had to attend the lecture. I took the weekend batch as I was doing my B. Tech. The coaching classes are important for everyone when it comes to competition. The test series and the variation in the questions cannot be mastered without the help of the expert guidance, which I received there.

There are so many types of questions that one cannot think of. The study material gives the brief view of every topic. The course books are designed to give the complete overview of the subject. The course material reading and doing as many questions as you can is the best way to work with the GATE exam.

Ques. How would you rate the following Preparation Strategy in terms of their efficiency in your story?

Ans. The coaching study material helped me a lot. The concepts are given clearly and in point. At the time of exam, one has to look for brief information which you get in the coaching material. So it is very good study assistance. But you must not just read it and put it aside. Practice questions every time you take a look on study material. The more you practice better it is.

Ques. How would you rate the following Preparation Strategy in terms of their efficiency in your story?

Ans. The online study material is good when it comes to GATE. You cannot rely on the formulas though those are given online. You can do as many questions as you wish to do. Online you can look for GATE question banks. The more you work with the questions in the GATE question bank the better. Every site gives you some new questions and tells you about an important topic. I frequently used to visit collegedunia website for all the updates related to GATE. They give good and accurate information.

Ques. How would you rate the following Preparation Strategy in terms of their efficiency in your story?

Ans. Self Study is the most important tool. No one can clear the exam without it. Study with a relaxed mind. Make your own notes apart from the ones you get from the coaching center. Write down and memorize important formulas.

Ques. What mock papers did you take?

Ans. I took papers designed by Made easy academy. I also practiced from the online mock papers.
