EasySuccess: GATE 2014 Pattern and Preparation Strategy 9

gate_entrance_eam_2012There has been a lot of speculation about a major change from 2014 in Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) exam. There were a lot of changes in GATE-2013 too which can be seen as a start for some more changes. The pattern of the paper is to be such that it should be able to cover as much portion of the syllabus as possible because of the massive syllabus of GATE Exam.

The GATE-2013 paper had some drastic changes from the previous years’ papers and this year, that is, in GATE-2014, there is a possibility of the following changes taking place:

1. Some radical changes will be made!

There will be an entire new type of exam going to happen this time around, as states a report of MHRD, saying that they are in consultation with an international and experienced test origination for GATE and NET exams. No wonder some GRE and TOFEL like exam is made this time.

2. Two Papers rather than a Single One.

First one would be more or less like the GRE paper and the Second paper could be a Subject based exam covering all topics this way.

3. First Paper

First paper would be like GRE paper as explained which might be named GATE-Pre (consisting of math and aptitude and may have some questions asked from subjects) and its scores can be same as GRE too. PSUs and other organizations can recruit using these scores as is the trend going these days.

4. Second paper

Second paper would be based entirely on Subjects and M.Tech admissions would be based on the scores in second paper. To appear for the second paper one need to be above certain cutoff in first paper as is the case with IIT exam these days that you have to qualify in AIEEE exam.

5. Previous Degree Marks

GATE scores could also consider earlier degree marks for making final scores as is, again, the case with IIT Exam’s new pattern.

Is the New Pattern going to be implemented in GATE-2014?

Govt. is looking for it to start from GATE 2014. This will be clear after the issuing of the GATE notification this year. Mostly, first paper would be computer based and second paper can be offline.

Preparation Strategy

If you are looking to start preparing for GATE 2014, start looking into aptitude first as it is expected to be a part of GATE-2014 in both the case. Spare some time from your preparation to look into the GRE aptitude and maths sections. Do start looking into basics of core subjects too.

    I am Sashi and wants to tell something about the The Gate Academy that it is having the best Gate Mock Test Series.It really helps students in getting success.It is conducted in classroom environment, where a candidate is required to answer by shading OMR Sheets similar to GATE Exam. It consistently provides Rank and Percentile, and will continue till the GATE Exam.

    It is really very good about The Gate Academy that it is having different types of correspondence Programs .The Gate Academy is having different types correspondence exams like Regular,Advance and premium.The students can go through it as per his/her requirements.Correspondence Learning Program consist of complete GATE syllabus in the form of booklets with theory, solved examples, model tests, formula and questions in various levels of difficulty in all the topics of the syllabus. The material is designed in such that way that it’s proven to be ideal material in-terms of an accurate and efficient preparation for GATE.

    If you are thinking of GATE,then you must make efforts for it and go through some coaching Programs,because the Diamonds are also need to be polished.As per me The Gate Academy is having the better class room training Programs.Here the Classroom Training Program is designed for Students who wants to start their preparation early and would like to take the advantage over the others in terms of spending more time on fundamentals of the Subjects. Focused sessions of Concept buildings will orient the students approach towards solving GATE problems in minimal time.
