It is important that you should always keep the GATE syllabus handy and prepare a timetable for your study accordingly.

You should not have the mindset to ignore any specific subject completely. If you develop this kind of attitude you will not be able to cover the entire syllabus at the end. Set realistic goals and allot time in such a way so that you can cover all the subjects or topics properly and that too on time. It is important to remember that you have to cover up each topic thoroughly because the syllabus is vast and you can expect question from anywhere during the examination.

Keep short notes so that you can revise these important notes as much as you can. It is helpful during your preparation in the last few days where revising directly from books often would become difficult.

Focus on the main points and underline all the vital details. You can also keep a separate notepad to jot down important information or formulae. Many students use flashcards to remember the key points or important formulae for the last moment revision. Another way is to use short form or abbreviations or remember details with help of initials of a popular song or poem or other innovative way that helps you learn your examination topics quite well.

Sit for mock tests and check where you actually stand. It is a kind of self-evaluation that allows you to identify the areas that you need to focus. You can make use of the test series offered by your tutorial center or even buy relevant books or CD or DVD for self-assessment. Be honest and take up the test properly within a scheduled time. If you wish you can ask your parents to invigilate and help you to get a feel as if you are taking the test inside an examination hall. Plus, you should also analyze the performance in the mock tests and understand the topics you are unable to cope up with.

Complete your preparation on time

Another important tip is to complete the entire syllabus on the scheduled time. You should prevent being in the situation where you would miss few chapters or subjects completely. It is ideal that you should complete the syllabus at least forty five days before the day of examination. During this period you should solve the papers and appear for the mock test. Make sure that you should also revise these topics in first thirty days of this timeline of forty five day.
