How to Prepare for GAT Exam?

 Preparation for any entrance exam especially GAT can always be a gigantic burden to deal with, but it all just depends upon the way you view it and how you approach it. Having strong determination will be enough to crack any exam. So first thing you should be doing is setting up a goal to crack this exam.

When I mean setting up your goal, it means that you should go all out and be ready to face all of the consequences coming your way. Build up your persistence so that you would not be compelled to not give up halfway through your effort. Now, if you have determination to face this exam, you need to find various ways to approach the exam which can be suitable for you. Given below are some of tips that you can follow.

  • Preparation of a Timetable

You need to start your exam preparation by creating a proper timetable that provides you with a disciplined structure to prepare for this exam. If the schedule is good enough you can follow it over complete preparation period and score a good score.

Divide whole syllabus into equal parts and distribute it into each session of schedule. In this way, you will be covering entire syllabus. During these study sessions, try to avoid as many outside distractions and concentrate solely on preparing for the exam.

One important thing to remember is you need to give enough and meaningful breaks in between these study sessions so that you will feel refreshed and resume preparation with increased enthusiasm.

  • Time Management

During examination, you will be facing with the problem of insufficient time for going through all questions. This is most prominent problem that arises from improper management of time. In GAT you need to answer 100 questions in a total span of 2 hours from three sections. So, during stages of preparation, try to find out which of three sections are much easier for you to answer and which ones take more time for you to solve.

This way during actual exam, you could make sure to answer easier sections at beginning and transfer extra time onto tougher sections. When you are answering sections, answer them as accurately as possible so that you wouldn't be looking back at them in doubt and waste more time. This speed and accuracy can only be developed with help of extensive practicing of previous year questions from whichever source you find.

  • Evaluate and Improve Yourself

Simultaneously to your preparation you need to evaluate yourself by solving various practice questions and sample papers periodically. This is only way you could know how much you have prepared for exam and how much is still there to be prepared.

When you test yourself you will also come to know which are your stronger areas and which areas need more preparation. Thus accordingly you can change your preparation schedule to improve areas you are struggling with.
