Last-Minute Tips for GATE CE 2022 Exam Preparation

Those who are planning to take the GATE CE exam must now get hold of last-minute preparation tips. Below given are some of the tips which the candidate should follow to score well in GATE 2022.

  • Revision: Candidates should make short notes on each topic and go through them again during the exam. This will assist to avoid any last-minute misconceptions.

  • Focus on your strengths: Candidates are recommended to concentrate on their strong areas at this point. At this point, going over the weak areas and attempting to strengthen them is pointless.
  • Practising Mocks & Previous Year Papers: The most important thing at this time is to practise and analyse as many GATE CE mock tests as possible. Candidates will be able to identify areas where they need to improve by analysing the mocks.

  • The MSQ & NAT Section: The MSQ & NAT section is a unique as well as an important part of the GATE exam. MSQ is added in the GATE Exam from last year. There is no negative marking in these questions. Try to be precise when you are answering NAT Questions.

  • Time Management: The GATE Exam has a time limit of 180 minutes in which to complete 65 questions. Candidates must consider both speed and accuracy when answering questions and divide the time appropriately so that they can finish the paper on time.

  • Be confident: Last-minute worries prevent your mind from working, making you feel as if you're forgetting stuff, and occasionally that dread is so strong that you forget things that damage the exam. As a result, believe in yourself and be confident, but not overconfident.
