After GATE ?????? What ?
There are two options
1. IES Exam *****
2. PSUs Exam***
*****For IES*****
***For Conventional***
1. Prepare rigorously 2 to 3 subject of each paper for conventional

*Subject priority list for conventional*
Paper-1 Paper-2
1. FM/FMachine 1. SOM
2. HMT 2. Prod/E.Materials
3. Power Plant 3. Industrial
4. Vibrations



***For Objective***
1. Prepare all subjects all topics
2. Focus on theoretical and formula based questions. No need to solve
lengthy numerical problems of previous GATE papers. Main focus will
be on IES previous and IAS previous questions. I have given 12000
objective questions with answer. If you havent taken yet collect it from
classmate.

***About conventional papers***
Step-I: First read the instruction which is in the question paper and be clear
about how many questions have to answer.
Step-II: Read the questions carefully and understand clearly what examiner
wants.
Step-III: Start answering with easiest question. But remember all parts of the
question should be answer in one place means if question no 5 has three parts (a),
(b) and (c). In your Answer sheet first mark 5/(a), 5/(b) and 5/(c) with different
pages assuming that you need that much space to answer that part of the
question. Now you are free to answer 5/(c) first that you find easiest in the paper.
Step-IV: After answering 5/(c) you find that next easiest question is 9/(b). Repeat
step-III and answer 9(b) in that way you proceed.

Step-V: After 2.45 hr. In the middle of all blank pages write P. T. O
Step-VI: for 5 to 10 marks question you dont need the formula derivation. Do the
formula derivation if a mark for the question is more than 10
Step-VII: Write the meaning of all the symbols used. e.g Mass (m) = 10 kg.
Velocity (v) = 25 m/s etc.
Step-VIII: Write whatever you know about the question. Remember there is part
marking if you write something they will give you some marks

******For PSU Exam******
1. Prepare non-tech rigorously (GS, Aptitude, English) very high priority for
PSUs.

2. Write down all formula of mechanical engineering (there are about 750
formulae in mechanical)repeat it weekly.

3. Practice IES, IAS, GATE previous questions (Only theoretical type and
Formula based) - - No need to practice numerical type.
