As a GATE Aspirant it always seems like a mammoth task to go through all the material required for the Exam according to the syllabus provided by IIT’s and IISc.

Make a list of subjects and prioritise them based on the marks allotted to them. Now, create a timetable with distribution of subjects. Note that, if the distribution is not prepared, then you usually end up learning random topics, which may lead to confusion at the end. Starts reading all the chapters and prepare short notes on all important points. In this way, your revision is also complete and these short notes will also be useful for your last-minute revision.

This is the period when you should focus slightly more on developing your theoretical base (roughly around 65% weightage to theory and 35% to solving questions/practice). GATE exam tests your basics. Hence it is quite essential that your concepts are crystal clear. If you are enrolled in a GATE coaching institute, keep studying thoroughly the subject which is going on in the class along with revision of a subject that’s already been completed (choose a subject for revision, preferably, which you feel you did not understand properly).
