Hello friends! I had been very busy with my project work for a long time and that’s why I could not write any new post. Today I am writing this post on request of many GATE aspirants. It’s a very simple post with some basic tips, which might help you in your online GATE exam.
Today I saw the link of GATE mock test and I went through to find out the difference between online exam and offline exam. Believe me, I did not find any big difference except that if you don’t plan well, you will end up wasting your valuable time. If you don’t save this time, you will find yourself in a situation where you will have many simpler questions unattempted, which will result in a bad rank, while if you have a proper strategy to solve the online exam, you will be in a far better situation than others. Now you will ask, what’s the proper strategy to solve the online GATE exam? According to me, the best strategy for online exam is following:
“Forget that it’s an online exam!!!”
Now the following question will come in your mind:
The answer is:
“Solve the online GATE exam in offline way!!!”
Now lets go though all the details about how to solve the online exam in offline way. In your online exam, the Question Palette will be shown on right side of screen which will show the status of each question using the following symbols:
First thing you have to do is:
“Forget all these symbols!!!”
All of these symbols are only going to confuse you. To avoid all these symbols, you need to do some paper work. You will be provided with a scribble pad for your rough work in the exam. Before starting the exam (as soon as you get the scribble pad), write the question numbers from 1 to 65 on the scribble pad which will be used to write the status/answer of the questions which you have attempted.
When the time of the exam starts, click on the link “Question Paper”, given on bottom right corner of your screen.
