those did not get their provisional till the date what will they send for the eligibility criteria if the student is pass out in 2013

sir i am ty automobile student ,plz tell me about this exam

Jo koi b tumhe useless kahen unhe apne dimag me less use krna.

anybody have some details related to gate plz inform to others

ARIHANT PUBLICATIONS BOOK IS FANTASTIC…. tata mac graw hill is good but having lots of mistakes….gk publications is good for those whose concepts are clear ,,,they have not provided the answers for basic conceptual questions…

thanks a lot

Thanks…….

are yu all Sakru. Know him !

SAALE TUM SAB PAGAL HO MAIN ISE KAR KAR HI DIKHA DUNGA KI TUM SAB USELESS HO BUT NOT ME……….

you can apply for the gate exam. all the best

I m in final yr mechanical eng.I m appling for GATE.So which books i refer.

i am a final year exam.

so how will apply the exam?………..

aoye jyada comment baji karne ki jarurat nahi hai.

ab tak bura ho raha hai ……..to thoda aur sahi.

i am thaufeek i do not know about the GATE so pls help me.i want to prepare now onwards.

buy book by vikas tata Mgrill 2012 editihon . studied only mech section . where r u from

THANK U

I am dhinesh from 2nd-3rd year mechanical student how will prepare in gate exam & easy for your tips

This is full version of gate syllabus.each and every year iit choose the some important section of the version and make question paper…this section is provide easy to write the gate exam…i ll send this selected later..it helps to get 100marks easily

Yaar send it please…..

Sir i am B.E. second year studn’t sir plz tell me how to do study of this exam

stop this non sense

thank you so very much… and I’ll write the gate exam…

don’t be scare….booooooo

im very scared

ya you are correct

no body is useless make some positive attitude which will sure help you . do hard work . you will be the topper due to your attitude of your hard working and one day u will feel i m useful

thank you

hahaha

i will do it and prove to the world i m not useless!
