Tips you should consider Before GATE Exam !

Before Exam

First of all in order to remain hectic free and calm a proper sleep is important so take a good nap before exam. Avoid heavy breakfast. Don’t forget to carry Admit and Identity Card.

What will be my Strategy against negative marking?

For 1-mark multiple-choice questions, 1/3 marks will be deducted for a wrong answer. Likewise, for 2-marks multiple-choice questions, 2/3 marks will be deducted for a wrong answer. There is no negative marking for numerical answer type questions.

Now if you are facing problem in exam and you are somewhat near qualifying mark please try to avoid guessing answers of other question. In 99% case it will not help you to gain marks.

But yes if you think that you are far behind of qualifying mark, guessing can be an only option for you.

Procedure of making a guess: (Only in worst scenario)

  1. Read each option carefully.
  2. Try to eliminate as many options you can from the questions.
  3. Then make a calculated guess ( try to listen to your instinct)

(Don’t Leave Numerical Answer type Question as it has no Negative marking 😉 )
