Last Minute Preparation Tips for GATE EE 2024

The following are some expert-curated last-minute GATE 2024 preparation strategies. To be exam-ready, follow these instructions.

  • Stay Calm The time leading up to the GATE exam will be extremely stressful, but don’t be too hard on yourself. The situation will become worse, affecting your performance, and you will be unable to give your full effort.
  • Do not start learning new topics Candidates should not begin any new topics within a few days of the exam. Preparing for a new subject will only cause confusion.
  • Practice the topics The final days of GATE preparation are extremely important. Examine the entire syllabus and topics to ensure that everything is covered. To get a good grasp on the topics that have a higher weightage in the exam, try revising them.
  • Stick to the Time Table Make a revision schedule for yourself and follow it religiously. The time should be divided evenly among the sections, and you should be able to cover all of the topics.
  • Revision Make a small booklet for yourself with all of the formulas and tricks you’ll need for last-minute preparation. Making sticky notes will also be beneficial. This will refresh your memory and prevent last-minute confusion.
  • Avoid practising topic-wise Do not practise a topic from a textbook in these final days of preparation. Instead, use the handout material or a few carefully chosen questions that you must have marked as important or unique, i.e. questions that require the application of different concepts.
  • Improve speed and accuracy Time management is critical. Accuracy is also essential. Both of these factors contribute to your overall score, so working on them should be at the top of your priority list at all times, even on the last day of preparation.
  • Analyze Yourself Well, by the end of the syllabus, you should have a good idea of your strengths and weaknesses. Make peace with it now, in the final days of preparation. If you think of a topic and become completely puzzled by it, you should abandon it to avoid further stress.
