Anil Shinde – Cracked IES Prelims

First of all, I would like to thank the GATE School team, which has been working relentlessly on their students. This was my first attempt at the Indian Engineering Services exam. I completed my B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering in 2016. I was working simultaneously with my preparation. GATE School helped me manage my time very well. At first, I was a bit apprehensive about studying from video lectures. But then, my mentor made me understood how I should use the videos to my advantage. And slowly and steadily, I started enjoying learning from those. All of my doubts were solved by my mentor. The mock tests provided to me were exhausting for anyone. This really provided a fillip to my preparation and always gave me a reality check. All of it has resulted in my cracking the IES Prelims and my journey with GATE School continues to the Mains. Thanks much team!

Thankful for my GATE Preparation

Sneha was a very focused student and her diligence helped her achieve this. It was her belief and hard work that brought such good scores.Also,  She was very attentive in all her sessions and worked out on her flaws wherever necessary. And, the results are of course in front of us

  • Offline courses rely on the locally available teachers, which are not always best quality.
  • They also carry with themselves a constraint of time and location.
  • If you are a working professional you can't join one.
  • Similarly, if you are in a small town you can't join any good institute.
  • GATESchool brings you the best of academics and training to your doorstep.
  • It's very simple.
  • Choose the package you want to get.
  • Make the payment and you are done!
  • Within next 30 minutes you will get the login and password for the online access and within a week you will get the pendrive.
  • There are a number of ways to do that.
  • Firstly, you will be getting a mentor who will be a subject matter expert and will be calling you regularly.
  • He/she will be able to address your doubts.
  • Apart from that, you will be added to a WhatsApp group, which will be led by a mentor, who will be solving the doubts on a daily basis.
  • Live classes is an opportunity to interact with a teacher live.
  • They will be conducted online on a predecided topic.
  • You can suggest the topic you find difficult for the live class topic and also ask questions in real time.
  • Mock tests will be online and will be conducted as per the GATE pattern.
  • They will be timed and will have the marking scheme same as the real GATE exam.
