The best way to attend the GATE exam is to cover its syllabus published by the conducting body on the official website of GATE. This year IIT Madras is going to conduct the GATE 2020 so they published the syllabus on the official website. The syllabus covers all the parts of the subject from which the questions are expected and it will help the students in cracking the exam successfully.

Time management plays the key role in scoring high marks in GATE. As the students will have only 3 hours to complete all the sections so a good knowledge of time management is must be needed at that time. The candidate must know which part is required more time and they should work upon it. The candidate must be clear about which question is lengthy, which need to be skipped, which type of questions to attend 1st, etc. And this can be possible if he/she is alert about the time management before the exam.

Tress can vanish all the hard works as we know. so taking too much pressure before the exam day can lead to an unsatisfied exam experience. So the candidates are advised to relax before one or two days of the exam and stop all the preparation process. Having a relaxed and positive attitude on the exam day will help in many ways to attend all the questions successfully.
