Preparation for GATE Examination


As we all know, the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is one of the competitive examinations conducted in India. Nearly, about 8.5 lakh candidates appear for the examination every year. The opportunity to pursue PG programmes like Master in Technology (M.Tech.), Master of Engineering (M.E.), and PhD programmes from top-notch institutions and the job opportunities that the qualifying candidates receive eventually made the GATE examination one of the most competitive examinations in our country. In order to score well in this highly competitive examination, a proper exam preparation plan is required. Even the choice of the institutions from which the candidate needs to pursue their post-graduation is decided on the basis of the score and the subject that they opt for.

Are you looking for some fine resources to upgrade your skills and values for your GATE exam preparation plan? Then, the GATE Previous Years’ Question Paper is one of the finest choices.
