Each of us requires a different kind of study program based upon our style/preference of studying. Normally, all students take our study material and test series. Many also take video lectures as it helps them clear concepts. A lot depends upon time available to prepare, current stage of preparation, etc. If you are still unsure, please contact us.

Yes, there may be few scholarships available for students from top colleges, students with good grades, students from EWS and for students whose parents are from teaching or defence services. Pls contact us on 9930406349 via whatsapp with details of course you wish to join and scholarship category needed, along with relevant documents.

As a registered Career Avenues student, you can ask your doubts here and our faculty will get back to you.

Typically 5-6 months are required, but some students need a longer time frame based on other commitments. College students start preparation 12-18 months before GATE to have more time to practise questions as they may have semester exams as well.

We suggest about 800 to 1200 hours of preparation time overall. This can be divided into 3-4 months or 12-18 months, based on your schedule.

Preparing for the GATE exam in Environmental Engineering requires a systematic and well-planned strategy. Here are some steps you can follow to prepare effectively:

  1. Understand the Syllabus: Start by thoroughly understanding the GATE Environmental Engineering syllabus. This will help you identify the topics and subjects you need to cover.

  2. Gather Study Materials: Collect relevant study materials such as textbooks, reference books, previous years’ question papers, and online resources that cover the GATE Environmental Engineering syllabus.

  3. Create a Study Plan: Develop a study plan that allocates sufficient time for each subject and topic. Set realistic goals and create a timetable that suits your schedule. Divide your study sessions into smaller, manageable chunks to maintain focus and avoid burnout.

  4. Focus on Core Concepts: Environmental Engineering is a vast field, so focus on understanding the core concepts of each subject. Build a strong foundation by studying topics such as water and wastewater treatment, air pollution control, solid waste management, environmental impact assessment, and environmental laws and regulations.

  5. Practice Previous Years’ Papers: Solve previous years’ GATE question papers to familiarize yourself with the exam pattern, question types, and time management. This will also help you identify areas where you need more practice.

  6. Take Mock Tests: Regularly take mock tests to assess your progress and improve your time management skills. Analyze your performance and identify weak areas to work on.

  7. Seek Clarification: If you encounter any doubts or difficulties while studying, don’t hesitate to seek clarification from professors, experts, or online forums. Clearing your doubts will help you gain a better understanding of the subject matter.

  8. Stay Updated: Keep yourself updated with current environmental issues, advancements in environmental technologies, and any changes in environmental laws and regulations. This will not only help you in the exam but also in your professional career.

  9. Stay Motivated and Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle: Exam preparation can be challenging, so stay motivated and maintain a positive mindset. Take breaks, exercise regularly, get enough sleep, and eat nutritious food to keep yourself physically and mentally fit.

  10. Revision is Key: As the exam approaches, allocate sufficient time for revision. Review key concepts, formulas, and practice questions to reinforce your understanding.

Remember, everyone’s study approach may vary, so customize your strategy based on your strengths, weaknesses, and preferences. Stay disciplined, consistent, and focused throughout your preparation.
