So one can imagine the difficulty level of the paper just by listening to the name of the conducting bodies. Therefore if you are preparing for GATE 2018, you need to stay motivated by reading to the topper interviews and GATE Success Stories.

Nadeesh Aggarwal  -  AIR 21 - GATE 2017 (Electrical Engineering)

Nadeesh wrote the GATE 2013 Paper in the final year of his graduation just for the sake of it, without any preparation, since he had already grabbed a good college placement. He secured AIR 9000 in that. He then decided to prepare for the GATE 2018 Exam simultaneously with the job. But soon his thoughts were proved wrong since private companies suck up your life completely. Therefore you don’t get any time to spend on yourself. Finally, he decided to leave the job and focus only on GATE. He secured AIR 581 in the GATE 2015 paper. This doesn’t seem to satisfy him much.He did not lose hope and fast forward one year, wrote GATE again.  He proudly says, “Do not get bogged down by anything. The best way to deal with a problem is to solve it, instead of just running away from it. If you feel you’re going through hell, keep going. Just don’t give up at any stage. Fight till the end.”

Divyanshu Jha - AIR 8 – GATE 2017 (ME)

Divyanshu, a 2016 graduate of Delhi Technological University (DTU) appeared in GATE 2017 and secured AIR 8 in the first attempt. Isn’t that something to be boasted upon? He praises the opportunities for engineering students to pursue a good career and live a balanced life through the GATE Exam. He talks about the Recruitment through GATE 2018 in PSUs. In an interview, he mentions about his preparation for GATE. He states, “I tried to study at least 30 hours only for GATE on a weekly basis.  After completing my graduation in 2016, I took up a job. However studying became too tough so I quit in October 2016 and concentrated on my preparation. After I quit my job, I took up studying up to 60 hours per week for next 3 months.”  He also mentions how the populous coaching institute MadeEasy helped him in grasping the topics with much comfort. Upon asked for solving GATE Previous Year Papers, he says, “Solving mock tests, GATE Sample Papers and Previous year question papers is essential. I would advise solving all the previous year papers at least thrice. It helps to predict important topics and areas that need more focus.”

Akash Dhiman – AIR 171 – GATE 2014 (Mechanics)

Dhiman, an average student and a 2013 graduate of Doaba Institute of Engineering and Tech secured AIR 171 in the GATE 2014 Paper. What inspired him to sit in the GATE Exam? To this, he responds, “I was not allowed to sit for campus placement as I could not fulfill the eligibility criteria due to fewer marks and also I had a backlog. That was the day when I decided, no matter what I will get the best job but I was refused at every campus placement. Finally, I was directed by my father to attempt GATE and make my future and get the best job.” He joined a coaching institute for the GATE preparation and studied 3 hours on a daily basis.  He analyzed the examination pattern, types of questions asked and everything else that came in his mind regarding GATE.

Khantesh planned to appear for the GATE 2016 Exam in Jan’2015 when he was in the 6th semester. He cracked GATE in the first attempt that too with the college load. Isn’t that amazing? Khantesh completed his GATE Syllabus by the end of December’2015 and left Jan’2016 for revision. He also joined a coaching institute to grasp command over his weak concepts. At the end, he attended several online test series to improve his time management and avoid silly mistakes during the exam.
