The level of competition for GATE exam is increasing drastically every year as the GATE exam is the GATE way to get admission into IISc, IIT’s and NIT’s that are centrally funded.
To prepare for GATE exam a candidate should refer the GATE syllabus for computer science engineering and then referring to GATE subject wise analysis, the student should strategize which topic to take first for preparing.
As we analyze the GATE question papers for computer science of past 10 years we see that the subjects that hold the maximum weightage in GATE exam are Data structures and algorithms, DBMS, operating systems and computer networks.The GATE subject wise analysis is provided so that the students who have less time to prepare can focus on these important subjects and can skip the subjects that have very less weightage. The general aptitude holds 15 marks and is also the easiest section to solve and score well. Mathematics is divided into two parts – discrete mathematics and engineering mathematics. Combination of these two subjects will have the highest weightage compared to other individual subject.
While preparing for GATE exam focus on the concepts, Practice these concepts as hard as you can – for better practice solve GATE previous papers for computer science and lastly revise the topics. This strategy will help you to know that in which topic you are good at and in which you are weak.ICE provides GATE previous papers with solution which will help you to mark your mistakes and correct it.
So prioritize the subjects in GATE exam and focus on scoring topics. Give mock test regularly to analyze your performance and try to rectify your mistakes. ICE offers best GATE computer science books online where you can get a good explanation of all the conceptual and important topics with suitable examples.
