Is it necessary to break GATE for mechanical engineering jobs?

Is it necessary to break GATE for mechanical engineering jobs?

No way..

It means that if someone has not broken the GATE in Mechanical Engineering, they will still be unemployed.

GATE is essential to get a job at PSU's at an early age.

But if you have a field experience of more than 2-3 years, many PSUs have an opportunity for experienced guys.

You can also opt for IES, IAS, CAT and many more UPSC exams.

I think GATE is just a small step. There are also many other better options.

TO GET A JOB ON ONE OF THE PSU SPARE PARTS, YOU NOT ONLY HAVE TO CRACK GATE JUST CROSSING THE CUTTING MARK, BUT GETTING A RANK OF 100 OR MORE (SCORE 800+)

AND YES, CRACK GATE IS NECESSARY TO GET JOBS IN MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

I stumbled upon this question somehow.

Most important point: DO NOT LISTEN TO OTHERS!

It's okay to be a normal student studying at a normal university. With many people bragging about their IIT / NIT backgrounds in their statuses here on Quora, it is understandable that one loses motivation quite quickly.

First of all, get rid of the feeling that you are normal. But how to do that? Control the subject well. Read good reference books, not those crappy books your friends prefer or teachers suggest, to get passing grades. Strengthen your fundamentals. Since you are in and

Most important point: DO NOT LISTEN TO OTHERS!

It's okay to be a normal student studying at a normal university. With many people bragging about their IIT / NIT backgrounds in their statuses here on Quora, it is understandable that one loses motivation quite quickly.

First of all, get rid of the feeling that you are normal. But how to do that? Control the subject well. Read good reference books, not those crappy books your friends prefer or teachers suggest, to get passing grades. Strengthen your fundamentals. Since you are in your sophomore year, you can spend an entire year getting a solid grip on your basics in the subjects you study in your third and fourth semesters.

Once you start to feel better, get a copy of the GATE syllabus. Look at it, see how much it is from its second year. Then you will start to feel great! It doesn't matter if you don't know things here and there. Start filling in those gaps, answer questions that are objective. You will get several books for GATE prep, but choose the one that is generally suggested as the best in its field. (Take a look on the internet to decide. I can't help you in this regard as I am not in the mainstream of mechanical engineering).

In the meantime, keep looking at the questionnaires from previous years as well. You will begin to understand a general trend of which subjects carry the most weight and so on. Implement this understanding in your preparation. Put more effort into those topics for which the most questions are likely to appear.

Since you have confessed that you are an average student, you may have to try harder. Spend more hours studying. Don't let anyone preach you with the fact that only smart work will get you places and not hard work. In my personal experience, only hard work makes you smarter and smarter. So take more and more time to clarify your fundamental concepts, because that will help you in the long run.

Try to minimize your distractions. Spend a good part of your vacations and vacations preparing. Your friends may ridicule you for not joining them on drinking sessions, parties, road trips, etc. Don't pay too much attention to them. Be social, but don't try to overdo it. But always remember, you have to be very dedicated to your goal. Lame excuses won't help on March 15 (or the date GATE results are released).

It is not impossible to get a good rank. Just remember this beautiful quote from Paulo Coelho.

When a person really wants something, the entire universe conspires to help that person realize their dream.


Good luck and all the best ...

  • First, I suggest that you familiarize yourself with the syllabus, the exam pattern, the question papers from the previous year, the weighting of important topics, and the study material.
  • Since you have just studied all the topics and you may have the books that you used to prepare for the exams, I suggest that you purchase handwritten notes and workbooks provided by websites such as NOTES4U (.in), which provide good quality notes that help you greatly in preparation and delivery throughout India.
  • Study the topics in your books, then review the notes, and then solve the questions in the workbooks
  • First 2.5 months, spend time on the strong topics that weigh heavily on the GATE test.
  • In the next 3 months, invest your time on weaker topics starting from more to less weighting.
  • After this, you will have about 2.5 months; start teasing regularly and go over topics and stuff. You will learn about some of the simulation topics that you should have studied but did not study, so you have time to improve.
  • I will recommend that you join the drills of Made Easy and Ace Academy, rest, you can investigate, not only give simulations by a number, but you learn from each simulation about what you have done wrong.

Apart from GATE, ISRO and IES, there are many good exams that are taken to recruit in various organizations, such as

-1. NPCIL-A subsidiary of BARC. Recruitment exams are held each year, generally in June or July. This year they took an exam in June.

2. RRB (SSE & JE) -The railroad recruiting board takes an exam for senior section engineer and junior engineer. Although it is a Group C job, but after 12-13 years of experience with promotions from time to time, you will be promoted to Group A job equivalent to an IES officer.

3. SSC JE: it is a work of group B and is carried out for the r

3. SSC JE: It is a group B job and is done for hiring in various positions in various departments such as MES (MILITARY ENGINEERING SERVICES). will be subordinate to an IES officer.

4.SAIL: one of the most prestigious power supplies. but this year he will not take an exam due to his great loss in the current year.

5.VIZAG - one of RINL's units. Good but not preferred by many engineers.

6.DMRC: DMRC also conducts examinations for different technical positions.

7.AFCAT: This test is conducted by the INDIAN AIR FORCE for the selection of officers in various branches of the IAF.

some other power supplies are BSNL, HAL, MTNL, SCIL, RBI, EII, BEL, ECI. (I didn't appear in these exams, so I don't know much about these exams.) Apart from these exams, the STATE ENGINEERING SERVICES exams are held from time to time in different states. BARC also conducts separate exams in addition to through-the-door recruitment.

Best of luck !

It started with basic subjects such as Mechanics, materials science thermodynamics, with easy to difficult questions.

During preparation, along with the online test series, we delivered 3 sets of tests on each topic.

Paper-1 was an open book, to clarify the type of questions that were asked in GATE and later in Paper2 / 3 were in GATE controlled atmosphere. This rigorous practice helps each student understand each and every subject.

The GATE classes were so interactive that all the students came in with 10/15 questions to discuss in class, so overall we solved between 50-60 questions, which was very advantageous for me.

The best part about Abhinav, sir, is that he teaches the complex subject in such a simple way that even one week students can comfortably understand. With each problem, he provided multiple solutions for better understanding and correct approach.

The benefit of studying for mechanics students in the GATE solution is that you can solve any exam together with GATE.

Abhinav sir has already graded the door exam many times and is currently working in the government. Organization so that, after the GATE exam, you provide orientation for the interviews and the entrance to the IIT.

I am sharing my experience, I always wanted to join the PSUs, but my rank was not enough to secure my place in any PSU, so he recommended I join IIT Bombay for M.tech. I joined and also looked for a position at the PSU, guys, don't believe in BPCL - Open positions in 2019 on the basis of Gate 2018, I applied and was selected.

Now I have a double advantage, I have a job in hand and I am also completing a master's degree in technology from the prestigious university in India.

I am lucky to have a mentor like Mr. ABHINAV.

Guys, I definitely recommend that GATESOLUTION ACADEMY For Mechanical students join in on your preparation. It is always better for all students who are preparing

Assuming that you have just completed your course and have taken over the GATE curriculum, the first thing to do would be to make a diagnosis: take tests, do an examination of conscience, and identify the subjects in which you are not very strong and allocate time in consequence. Take advantage of your strengths, get a reasonably good idea of ​​the subjects in which you are weak.
Gather study materials in the form of standard textbooks, lecture notes / printed notes from reputable training centers, and MCQ benches. Pick a topic, go to the books, solve the questions, one topic at a time. Solve about 25 questions at once, check the answers and study

Assuming you have just completed your course and have taken over the GATE curriculum, the first thing you need to do is the diagnostics: take tests, do an examination of conscience, and identify the subjects in which you are not very strong and allocate the time in consequence. Take advantage of your strengths, get a reasonably good idea of ​​the subjects in which you are weak.
Collect study material in the form of standard textbooks, lecture notes / printed notes from reputable training centers and MCQ benches. Pick a topic, go to the books, solve the questions, one topic at a time. Solve about 25 questions at once, check the answers, and study the concepts involved. As you study, you will find that with each question you check off and refer to, you will also learn a lot of supplemental things. Take notes on the go, preferably in a huge notebook (use different colored pens for ease). Also, write down formulas and things you need to memorize on a "ready counter." Once you've completed a topic, take mock topic tests, either online or in a study group or alone, whatever interests you.
Allot at least one month for the syllabus paused review and do lots of mock tests. Learn new concepts that you may have missed in the previous round, but make sure you don't overcrowd. A week or two before the exam, stick with the quick review, no more new concepts. The day before the exam, take out that ready-made calculation that you accumulated over time, review it ... then relax and face the test ...

I've searched a lot on this so based on my result I can say if you can get a range around 250-280 (general category) then you have a good psu chance. For ONGC, it goes up to the 700 range. There are always variations according to various factors such as no. Of jobs, etc.

I have heard that some private companies find that entry marks in the interview will enhance their resume.

You will get lots of answers on how to get GATE top rankings on Quora or Google. But, according to me, to obtain AIR 1 the first thing is the confidence in oneself and the faith in oneself. And secondly, it is luck if your luck plays well that day you can get AIR 1.
