While sharing tips with GATE aspirants, Praveen Kulkarni, Unacademy Educator said: "It is also critical to maintain your calm and keep an eye on the time during the exam because any errors or setbacks on the two factors during the exam could set you back by a few marks and impact the result".

In addition, staying calm and keeping an eye on the time during the exam is imperative because any setbacks or errors on either factor could result in losing a few marks. The numericals, especially, should be attempted with focus to avoid missing out on scoring questions. Every section and unit must be tackled and cleared.

Here is a list of essential section tips that will help boost the preparation for the GATE 2023 exam.

Section (A): General Aptitude, Maths, and English

  • Since Maths has a fixed weightage between carrying 13% to 15% marks of the overall paper, the subject must be the primary focus. While multiple revisions can help aspirants benefit from the practice, it's also advisable to prepare short notes of the formulae so that its easily accessible for quick revisions just before the exams.
  • The importance of aptitude in the exam is the same as that of Mathematics, so both should be equally focused on, for obtaining a high score.
  • English can be covered in an average pace with an emphasis on previous years questions (PYQs) for easy reference.
  • Lenghty questions that require in-depth responses are better tackled towards the end in order to save time and bandwidth while clearing the paper.
