Importance of Core-Subjects
- Core subjects must be prioritized as they plan an important role in building overall rank as their weightage is maximum
- These subjects are the foundation of other subjects as these makes your basics and concepts strong which helps in overall preparation.
Focus on Important Topics
- Smart Work must be added to Hard work for an exam like GATE.
- After getting familiar with the syllabus, candidates should go through the previous year papers and must analyze the questions asked and their weightage. Find the weightage analysis and important topics below:
|Digital Electronics||3||8085 Microprocessor, Sequence Detector|

Proper Study Plan
- Once you are familiar with the syllabus and pattern, then you need to frame a proper schedule subject and topic-wise.
- To keep the mind fresh, allot some time for relaxation as well.
- Sticking to this plan throughout is the key to success, hence consistency is important for GATE EE 2021.

- Managing time is one of the challenges students have to face in the actual exam.
- GATE aspirants should utilize each second effectively.
- Students should divide time for completion of syllabus, mock tests and revision so that he/she does not miss anything before appearing for the exam.
Practice Practice Practice
- Studying every topic will not help without practice, it’s rightly said Practice makes a man perfect.
- Practicing daily leads to perfection of a particular topic and GATE EE is more like a conceptual exam and students who practice more end up achieving a good rank.
Mock Tests & Previous Year Question Papers
- Mock Tests help you to know the scoring system well and also improves the score and rank.
- Previous Year Question papers are very important as they help you to get an idea of what questions can be asked in the actual exam.
