FAQs

• 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.
