I started preparing for GATE with college. After wasting a few months on materials of various coaching institutes, I got a feeling that my preparation was going nowhere. I was getting very poor scores in the tests.
I enrolled for GATE School because of their unique program of providing mentorship. In colleges most of the students are busy with academics and leisure time is spent in some extra-curricular activities, which affects the regularity of studies. But if someone is there to guide you how to prepare for an exam, what to study and when then your effectiveness improves very much. Mentorship gave my studies a plan and structure. Apart from them I was given tests from time to time to check my progress.
