GATE Exam tension

Dear All,
Hope all of you are preparing well for GATE. Recently I am getting some questions from students that they are demotivating and facing lot of stress as exam is near by.
Do not loose your confidence and prepare well with same tempo

Few tips:
  • Make a list of formula and prepare tables from all subjects
  • This is the time for preparing as groups and it will help a lot for interview preparation. Have a healthy discussion.
  • If any one is criticizing you (like you are genius mama....kevvu keka.....), try to avoid them. Tell them all are same that is the reason we are in coaching center. we should sharpen our knowledge here
  • Dont go back to your homes once syllabus is over. Home food will make you more sleepy. If you stay with friends during this time, their tension will make you to prepare more. This is my personal experience
  • Your focus should be only on exam (postpone your external affairs until March 2nd) and always dont forget your years of struggle to attend classes from 6am to 8.30 pm (ooops ..........tortured schedule....I have never attended classes like this...thanks to my god!!!)
  • This is not the time to think about results and specilizations
  • I am there to guide you after GATE results in choosing specializations and in your job hunt
  • Finally believe your will power and keep in mind rankers are not coming from heaven and will come from your bench mates only

Sky is the limit guys.....Be rocking ....All the best

Note to all

Dear all,
I would like to clarify one point to all.
I am maintaining this blog and giving guidance to students as volunteer and time consuming for me
No faculty will waste their time like this. If anyone demands me to get reply from me, sorry to them
I haven't replied one student because email is not proper and not trying the problem and directly asked me the solution. I am very much disappointed that I got one warning email from that student.
If it repeats, I will not reply and will not add any more to my network and will stop all of my blog activities
And finally, blog is add on benefit to my students. Dont forget this. You have no right to demand and warn me.
