Should you give one more GATE attempt?

When is it OK to repeat GATE attempt, and whether you should?
minutes read

This question crosses the mind of many aspirants when they somehow fail to score what they expected: "Should I prepare for one more year?"

Though there is no simple answer to this question because investing your 1 year is a big thing. Other than your preparation point of view, you may have to think about your personal situations, family support, etc.
To answer this question for you, I am assuming that there is no personal problem in your life and your family is fully supporting you in whatever decision you take. So as far as preparation part is concerned, there is a very simple way to find the answer of this question. Just ask yourself these 3 questions:

Question #1

Do you think you failed in giving your 100% efforts for about 8-10 months?

Question #2

Did you feel under-confident while writing GATE and felt you could have prepared better?

Question #3

Do you think the mistakes you made could have been improved if you practiced more questions?

Out of these three questions, if your answer is 'YES' for at least 2 questions, then you can consider preparing for 1 more year.

You may go for self-study or online coaching, but whatever you decide, I would highly recommend you to take a good question bank and not depend on previous year questions only. Any amount of practice will fail if you have not solved quality questions. We have put in enormous efforts is curating such a question bank which will broaden your concepts and push you to think more. Attempt 1 Free test of this question bank:

Heading 1

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Heading 3

Static and dynamic content editing

Block quote

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
