This year the exam happen for a longer period of time unlike previous years. The decision has been taken considering the current COVID19 situation.
There is an introduction of two new subjects i.e. Environmental Science and Engineering (ES) and Humanities and Social Science (XS) will enable the arts and commerce students to apply for the exam.
From now on 3rdyear candidates can also apply for the exam.
The new pattern also allows the candidates to sit for a maximum of two papers.

Start Your Preparation Early
Candidates must start their preparation early by doing so, they will be able to compile all the necessary study material and create a proper plan that they may follow during their course of preparation. Preparing a layout and then working accordingly will cutshot the time wasted while being confused about how to start their preparation
Time Management
Time Management plays a major role while preparing for the exam. GATE aspirants should utilize each second effectively. Proper time division for covering the syllabus, practising sample papers and lastminute preparation should be done so that the candidate does not miss anything before attempting the paper.
Keep Your Concepts Strong
Having a stronghold on the basics of the topics can help in performing much better in the exam. Candidates must have deeper conceptual knowledge of the frequently asked topics. The easiest way to keep command on basics is: Prepare short notes of formulas, concepts and compile it at a single place. Make it your habit of going through the short notes before starting your preparation each day.
Practice Mock Tests
Mock Tests are the best source for GATE preparation. If taken seriously, it has its benefits that candidates may get to know while attempting the question paper. Once the candidates have covered all the syllabi, they must take as many mock tests as possible. Mock tests are similar to the final test that candidates will give. One mock test each day will benefit the candidates in the following way:
Go through the Syllabus First
Another foremost step that candidates must do is to have a clear idea of GATE Syllabus that needs to be covered. GATE is a highlevel exam and therefore, there is a vast syllabus that candidates need to cover. To cover the overall syllabus without missing any topic, candidates must go through the syllabus provided on the official website of GATE 2022. Candidates must try to cover those topics first from which the possibilities of questions asked are higher.
Get a Clear Understanding of Exam Pattern
Along with the syllabus, candidates must be aware of GATE paper pattern and its trending changes. Having an idea about the exam pattern before taking the final test will help them to solve the paper with ease. Though the pattern remains the same each year, the structure of the paper may differ. An idea about the number of questions asked and the questions with higher weight may increase the chance to score high.
TopicWise Weightage in GATE 2022
The distribution of each topic in the paper will help a candidate in prioritizing the topic which needs to be covered first. Topics with higher weight must be prepared thoroughly. It will be a good strategy to ace the exam. This could be done by going through the previous year question paper and analyzing the trending changes.
