Hello GATE-2016 Aspirants!
I attempted GATE 2015 and Qualified with AIR-852.
I have some general suggestions for you all:
Never Skip any subject , I skipped Software Engg and had suffered a loss of 3 ques.
Regularly practice " Mathematics " (Engg+Discrete) , the common mistake that most of the candidate makes is they prepare hard technical subjects and leave Maths for future( the future that is uncertain to come).
There is no particular weightage of subjects in GATE, prepare every subject equally.
Don't try to solve practice questions without even going through the actual concepts (theory) by your own - This is especially for the students those who have joined some coaching.
[ Remember, there is no shortcut to success. ]
Smart work will bring you under AIR-100 , hard work may bring lesser rank. I am saying so because I am a victim.
Thanks for reading this. Prepare hard and be open to new questions and concepts.
