If you plan to take the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) soon, you may want to look into a Varsity Tutors GATE prep course. Because so much rides on the GATE, you want to feel confident that you've prepared thoroughly, and our private GATE classes can help you study effectively with the goal of walking confidently into the testing room.
Varsity Tutors provides GATE courses that are different than many others. The distinguishing feature is the one-on-one instruction in each GATE class. There are so many ways this method of study is better than learning in a group environment. Working individually with your instructor allows for specific customization of each GATE class session. Your instructor can assess you when you first meet to see what content you find most challenging and plan lessons around that. They can adjust lesson plans to reflect your improvement, whether you're learning faster or slower than the original plan. By spending exactly the time you need to master each subject, your GATE course is more efficient than a one-size-fits-all classroom experience.
During your GATE prep classes, your instructor can cover more than just the content you'll be questioned on during the test. They can describe things like the structure of the exam, the way questions will be worded and how to make sure you understand what each question is asking, and demonstrate other strategies that could be beneficial for you during the test. HEre is a breakdown of the exam you'll be studying for with your GATE tutor:
- 65 Questions
- 3 hours to take
- Multiple Choice Questions
- Numerical Answer Type Questions
- No negative marks for wrong answers in Numerical Answer Questions
Three hours is a long time to be focused on a test. Because your instructor is invested in your doing well on test day, they may provide some type of timed practice during one or more of your GATE prep class sessions. Receiving the guidance you need in order to learn to pace yourself in a manner that allows you to finish the complete exam in the time allotted is something you can expect from your GATE course. In addition, if you're one of the many people who tend to experience anxiety in any testing situation, your tutor can help in a couple of ways. The first way is simply by working to get you familiar with the test. Anxiety often comes from a fear of the unknown. Your GATE instructor can also work with you on relaxation techniques you can use during the test.
If you're wondering what is covered on the GATE, review the following list of representative sample topics:
- Aerospace Engineering
- Agricultural Engineering
- Architecture and PLanning
- Civil Engineering
- Chemical Engineering
- Computer Science and Information Technology
Clearly, this is an advanced assessment. You'll be required to prove your comprehensive understanding in engineering, architecture, and technology at an undergraduate level and science subjects at a postgraduate level. The standards were determined jointly by the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore and the seven Indian Institutes of Technology for India's Department of Higher Education. The GATE Committee consists of representatives from the administering institutions, and only they have the authority to regulate the exam and declare results.
There's no reason you should have to study for the GATE on your own. Contact Varsity Tutors today to learn more about our customized GATE prep courses and get signed up so you can begin studying right away.
