Predicting GATE 2014 Exams by Looking at 2013 Stats
GATE 2014: What to Learn from the Results of the GATE Exam 2013
GATE 2014 will be held on the 1st, 2nd, 15th and 16th of February, and the1st and 2nd of March in 2014. It is one of top competitive examinations held in India. The exam aims to test an applicant’s understanding of the various subjects in Engineering and Technology. Here are some expert predictions looking at the stats of 2013.
The number of GATE applicants is increasing every year. According to a report published in the website of IIT Bombay, a total of 12, 00,728 candidates registered for GATE 2013. Out of this, 9, 84,855 candidates (82.02%) appeared for the exam, and only 1, 36,699 (13.88 %) could qualify the exam with a valid score. The competition was really tough. It may get tougher in 2014, with the number of candidates appearing for GATE increasing every year.
Experts believe that the increase is mainly driven by the multiple benefits that a valid GATE score offers. A valid GATE score widens scopes for higher studies, and opens doors to top PSUs, such as, CIL, SAIL, and GAIL.
Paper wise participation
In 2013, nearly 81 % of the total number GATE aspirants who appeared for the GATE exam selected one of the following four papers.
- Electronics and Communication Engineering (2,56,135)
- Computer Science and Information Technology (2,24,160)
- Mechanical Engineering (1,65,814)
- Electrical Engineering (1,52,381)
Interestingly, these four papers were selected by most of the candidates who appeared for GATE in 2012 as well. This indicates that, these are the core subjects of GATE exam. As such, you should put more focus of these subjects during the preparation phase. Choosing a coaching institute to start special preparation in these subjects can be a winning strategy for cracking GATE 2014.
As GATE 2014 is going to be conducted online, more and more online mock tests should be practised to get first-hand experience of the online mode. This will give you ample opportunity for self-assessment and boost up your confidence.
E Lectures helped me a lot in making a head start in the right direction. It helped whenever I got stuck in any topic. Mock Tests across 50 centers helped me judge my progress both on individual and comparative basis.
In one year’s time, I was able to prepare for GATE exam with the help of THE GATE ACADEMY and faculties. GATE Focused study materials and online mock tests helped me know my strengthen & weakness to prepare accordingly. I wish all the best to all GATE aspirants and suggest them to go through GATE coaching in case the basics are not clear.
I took up mechanical coaching at THE GATE ACADEMY as there is no separate coaching for Engineering Sciences in India and Mechanical and Engineering sciences have more or less common topics.I feared that cracking GATE would be very difficult because I started my preparations very late but the counsellors and teachers guided me
I am Praveen. I got AIR 1 in Instrumentation stream. I want to dedicate this to my parents and to the Gate Academy faculty. Gate Academy coaching helped me tremendously to update myself continuously.I was very impressed with the way they taught each topic in different sessions with separate material for each session.
To begin with, it gives me immense pleasure to Thank,Thank the institute THE GATE ACADEMY for all their help and support.Its a place to learn, explore, grow and succeed.Well it helps you brush-up your engineering knowledge and learn new things and clears your concept in such great details
THE GATE Academy questions covered a wide variety of topics and were similar to GATE paper standard. The online platform replicated the actual GATE test environment and the detailed and video solutions were sufficient to clear all doubts regarding the question. Thanks to THE GATE Academy team to provide such wonderful tests & platform.
