Well begun is half done. If, as a graduating engineer, you are looking forward to thrust your career to new heights, then, starting the GATE preparation as early as possible is the most ideal thing you could do for yourself.
Every graduating engineer is, probably, aware of the GATE exam, its syllabus, conduction, etc. Here is a quick overview about the GATE exam and reasons to start early.
TRENDS IN THE GATE
In just 10 years, the number of GATE appeared candidates has increased by approx. 6 lakhs aspirants.
With such competition, it is better that a graduating engineer does not just sit and contemplate till the last year about taking the test, but, assess his/her preparation and begins with at least Engineering Maths and GA.
GATE IS NOT ‘DIFFICULT’, BUT, IS ‘DIFFERRENT.’
Basically, one of the most important reasons for you to start early is that if you’re decided sooner, you keep yourself informed about dates, anticipate preparation and align with your current exams, etc. as GATE is an exam which tests your engineering aptitude. Time management becomes easier as you can make a right schedule with right information.
PSU JOBS AND RECRUITMENT
Be ready for a 6-7 lakh of difference in your starting annual package just by qualifying in the GATE exam. It is better to know about PSU jobs and interview processes in advance. For that, be ready for the elite-most Public Sector Undertakings rolling out job advertisements for recruitment processes through the GATE exam.
GATEway to exams like IAS, etc.
Getting into Civil Services is the biggest dream for most of the students as it is one of the most difficult exams and also the most prestigious ones. Since both, the UPSC and GATE require a lot of time for preparation, it is obvious that one has to plan way ahead. Also, both these exams complement each other.
