GATE 2019 Topper (AIR-9, CE) Vishal Tiku Shares His Success Story

Hi, I am Vishal Tiku. I secured AIR-9 in GATE 2019 Civil Engineering. I did my B.Tech from NIT Srinagar in 2018. I started my preparation for GATE in 2017. I opted IES Master Online Test Series, and I must say that it was the most important part of my journey towards achieving this feat. The test series put up really typical questions and it helped me to strengthen my concepts, and improve my short notes in a better way.

  1. What were your marks in GATE 2019?
    I scored 82.08 marks. My GATE score is 959.
  2. How was the paper? How different it was from previous year?
    The paper this year was tough. There were many typical questions which were asked this year. Last year’s paper was easy. More number of questions were on the average side, but this year there were some typical hard level questions.
  3. Can you specify the subjects from which the hard questions were?
    The questions from Structure Analysis part were really hard this time.
  4. Take us through that moment when you shared the result with your family.
    When I broke this news to my family, they said Okay… that’s good. Actually they were not able to express their emotions. They were like, Okay… it’s good. But they were not able to express the euphoria.
  5. Tell us about your native place.
    I am from Jammu, which is my home town and native place. Jammu is a part of Jammu and Kashmir. It’s a good city with all the hustle and bustle. The pace of life is good. Every facility is available there, and the best thing is that people there are nice.
  6. Tell us about your schooling.
    I have done my schooling from Army Public School, Kaluchak. Being an army school, the discipline, and the education, everything was superb, excellent.
  7. Tell us about your journey from school to B.Tech college.
    My journey started from giving JEE Mains in 2014. I secured AIR 44,000, and I got admitted into NIT Srinagar in Civil Engineering branch. The journey has many ups and downs throughout the college, but ultimately it was a great experience. The college life is worth the experience. It was a great experience.GATE Coaching
  8. Tell us a little about your preparation schedule.
    My preparation schedule was like I used to wake up at 8 AM. After my breakfast and all, I started my day at 11 AM, and I used to study till 11 PM or 12 AM. I took 8 to 8 and half hours sleep every day. No compromise with sleep.
  9. When actually did you start preparing for GATE?
    I started my preparation in August 2017.
  10. It means you were still in college when you started your preparation. What were the difficulties that you faced while preparing for GATE along with your college studies?
    What I did was to focus more on GATE. I used to study for semester exams a week before the exam, more focus was on GATE only.  
  11. As you were preparing for GATE along with your college studies, what was the impact on your semester grades?
    Of course it works because once you are in GATE, your basic concepts really get strengthened. The basic fundamental formulas and basic concepts, you really get a good command over those concepts, and simply for semester exams, you have to make some twists and turns. It’s more on the theoretical side, but getting concepts right is the key. It was helpful.
  12. When the news broke in your native place and at your college NIT Srinagar that you have scored AIR-9 in GATE 2019, what was the reaction?
    Everyone was really happy. They were wishing me best of luck for the future. The faculty and the director, they were really happy about it. Everyone in the college was happy about it.
  13. What kept you motivated during your preparation?
    The need for job in the public sector was the real aim behind GATE, and that only kept me motivated.
  14. What is so special about PSUs that you want to get in?
    The work-life balance in PSUs, and the salary packages are the two main factors that excited me to join public sector. Also, by doing so you are serving the nation in a good way. That was the real motivation.
  15. How did you prepare short notes?
    I started preparing short notes in January. In short notes, I kept the basic formulas.
  16. What would be your advice to your juniors from your college?
    Just be consistent with your studies. Hard work is the key. But the thing is do opt for test series, and be consistent like revise daily. You have to prepare new concepts daily, and you have to give tests right from the beginning. You can’t wait for completing the syllabus first, and then giving the test. No, that’s not the way. The thing is you have to opt for the test. You have to give the tests right from the beginning, and work on it. Come out of these mistakes. You have to strengthen your concepts by giving the tests. So tests are really the bottom part of it.
  17. How did IES Master test series help you structure your preparation?
    IES Master test series include questions which are a bit on the difficult side, but those questions are really important. The trend has been in the past few years that GATE has been asking really typical questions. Few questions are really typical questions. IES Master test series help you to overcome those difficulties, and get these typical questions right. That way you achieve the top rank.
  18. Coming to the core subjects i.e. Soil, Structure Analysis, Environment, how did you go about preparing for these subjects?
    For these subjects, I read the standard books two times. First time I gave it a thorough study, solve as many questions as I can, and second time I started preparing notes. The thing about these core subjects is that you have to practice a lot. You have to practice more and more questions, as many questions that you can. Moreover, try to revise these subjects daily because they involve lot of formulas. Revision is the key when you are dealing with these core subjects.
  19. While preparing for GATE, did you ever come across any second thought?
    Lows come in every aspirant’s journey. They are a part of your journey, but the thing is that you have to be motivated. Sad moments and depression have come into my journey also, but you have to overcome those moments. Keep focus on your ultimate goal.
  20. What would be your advice to your juniors regarding the right time to start preparing for GATE?
    Preparing from the third year is the ideal time I guess. Start preparing from third year, it would really help you in your semester exams and you would get to know about the concepts at an early stage, and this would help you in GATE exam as well.
  21. How did you go about revision i.e. cyclic revision, and carrying out the entire syllabus?
    Whenever you are preparing for a subject, you would encounter new subject but you have to keep up with the old subjects also that you have prepared. So revision is the key. Keep revising old subjects, and start picking up new subjects as well.
  22. How many subjects were you reading generally in a day?
    I used to study one subject in a day, but I gave one or two hours to revise the previous subjects also.
  23. It is an absolute honour to have someone like you with us at our institute. We thank you so much for sharing your experience. It is an absolute delight to have you as part of IES Master.
    Thank you, sir.

GATE 2019 Topper (AIR-14, CE) Shriram Kushwaha Shares His Success Story

Hello guys, myself Shriram Kushwaha. I have secured AIR-14 in GATE 2019. I did my B.Tech from IIT Guwahati. I have taken Classroom Program of IES Master. The environment inside the class was too competitive, and the teachers were very supportive. No matter how big or small your doubt would be, they cleared all our doubts.

  1. What were your marks in GATE 2019?
    My marks in GATE 2019 were 81.16, and my GATE score is 948.
  2. What helped you secure such a good GATE rank?
    To remain motivated always during your preparation, without allowing the negative thoughts to come in your mind. Always be positive, and prepare for the exam with this positive attitude. Plan accordingly, make daily goals, and achieve those goals. I did the same, and this helped me achieve this feat.
  3. Take us through that moment when you shared this information with your family members, and what was their reaction
    When the result was announced, I was in Bhopal along with one of my friends. I received a call from one of my friends informing about the announcement of GATE 2019 result. After checking the result, I first called my father. He was very happy on hearing about my achievement. He asked me to share this happiness with my friends by distributing sweets. On hearing about my result, there was a happy environment at my home also.
  4. How different was this year’s GATE paper in comparison to previous years’?
    This year’s GATE paper was a bit better than the last couple of GATE papers. Earlier too many direct formula based questions used to come, but this time the paper included concept based questions. My approach to solve the GATE paper was to first solve simple questions, and then attempt the questions that were left in the first attempt. I marked this strategy on the question booklet, and attempted the most difficult questions in the last. In other words, I solved the paper in three steps. First, I attempted the easy to solve questions. Second, I attempted the questions that were easy but lengthy, and then finally, I solved the questions that were conceptual based.
  5. Tell us about your journey from IIT Guwahati to IES Master. How did you come to know about IES Master, and when you started preparing for GATE 2019?
    When I was in the final semester of my B.Tech, I thought about my post B.Tech plans. Through some of my batch mates who were preparing for GATE, I come to know about IES Master as they had taken the Postal Study Program of IES Master. I checked the content of study material of the postal program, and I found it very good. At that very moment, I made up my mind to join IES Master after completing B.Tech.
  6. Which study program of IES Master you joined?
    I joined the classroom program of IES Master.
  7. Tell us about your family.
    My father is a primary teacher. My brother runs his own small scale business, and my mother is a home maker.
  8. Tell us a little about your city.
    I come from a small village that comes under Rewa district in Madhya Pradesh.
  9. Tell us a little about your schooling.
    I completed my schooling from Rewa, and then later I did my B.Tech from IIT Guwahati. Studying at IIT Guwahati was a golden phase of my life.
    GATE Coaching
  10. What was your study schedule?
    It was my daily goal to practice questions of the subject that was being taught on any particular day, and also revise that subject. Once I have covered a part of the syllabus then my objective was to keep fresh in mind the subjects that had been covered by revising them.
  11. How did you prepare short notes, and what was the role of IES Master Study Material in it?
    While preparing notes, I kept in mind that it includes all the important concepts and formulas that generally come in the exam. Also, if I come across any new formula in the test series then also I used to include it in my short notes. In this way, just by referring my short notes I was able to revise the entire syllabus.
  12. In the test series of IES Master, what used to be your rankings?
    My rank used to be average, not much good, and not much bad. It used to be around 50-60. To achieve good rank, one must focus on his accuracy level. Try to commit fewer mistakes. The same I did in the final exam.
  13. There are highs, and sometimes there are lows during preparation. What kept you motivated in such conditions?
    Whenever I felt low, I used to speak to my parents or my friends. Whenever I spoke to my parents, they always used to say that I need not to worry. Study again, and give your best next time. So, I never felt depressed. There was always morale support from my family. I was focussed towards my goal, and always kept in mind that bad days are never forever.
  14. With this GATE ranking, what you have in your mind PSU, ESE, Civil Services, or you have something else in your mind?
    Actually my goal is IES, and after GATE there are many PSU options. Now I would write the ESE Mains paper, and then accordingly I would plan my next course of action.
  15. How did you prepare yourself a day before the exam?
    Generally most of students revise everything a day before the exam. In my opinion, one needs a sound sleep a day before any exam.
  16. What was your strategy in regard to negative marking?
    GATE now has more numerical based questions. So there is less probability of negative marking. So, I made a point to solve the objective questions with utmost care to avoid negative marking.
  17. What would be your message to other GATE aspirants and your juniors from IIT Guwahati?
    Students of IIT Guwahati are too much inclined towards GATE and ESE, and the B.Tech syllabus is quite similar to that of GATE and ESE. My advice to all the students would be to not take their semester syllabus lightly, and never lose their faith. Always stay motivated. To all future aspirants, I would like to say that everyone can crack GATE with good rank. If I can do it, anyone can do it. The only thing they need to take care of is to take all the test series seriously, and once they have taken the test series, do a self evaluation to determine your mistakes, and improvise. Once you do this, you can easily get a good GATE rank.
  18. It’s a pleasure talking to you. It’s so nice of you that you gave us time. Thank you so much.
    Thank you, sir.

GATE 2019 Topper (AIR-11, CE) Mukesh Lamrod Shares His Success Story

Hey, I am Mukesh Lamrod. I secured AIR-11 in GATE 2019 from Civil Engineering branch. I have done my B.Tech from MBM Jodhpur in 2018. The best thing here at IES Master is the study material. There are no mistakes. By studying it, you would not feel that you should study any other book. It covers the entire syllabus of GATE and ESE.

  1. What were your marks in GATE 2019?
    My marks were 81.38.
  2. Walk us through that very special moment when you came to know that you secured AIR-11 in GATE 2019?
    At that time, I was in Gurugram, and I received a message from one of my friends that the result of GATE 2019 has been announced. I asked him about his rank, and he said first you check yours and tell. I said that I have secured AIR-11. I have predicted that I might secure this rank. The main task for which I came here at IES Master in Delhi has been accomplished.
  3. Give us an insight into the two sections of GATE, how were they different from previous year’s?
    I first started with the technical paper, and completed it in one hour and 45 minutes. Then I took the non-tech paper. I committed a silly mistake in that paper. Rest the paper was moderate. English part was also normal. Technical part was a bit hard, but not much hard.
  4. Tell us about your family.
    I belong to a farmer family from Nagaur, Rajasthan. My father is a farmer, and mother is home maker.
  5. Is GATE popular in your village?
    No, but now it has become popular.
  6. Tell us about your schooling.
    I studied up to 9th standard in my village, and I never thought that I would become an engineer. For matriculation, my family sent me to Jodhpur for studies. I said it would not be possible for me to study while staying away from home, whatever you want to do I can do while staying here only. But I was sent forcefully, and secured 62.33% in matriculation from Rajasthan Board.
    Then family members asked me about my choice of stream after matriculation. I took Biology for some time and then took Maths, and spent two months like that. I thought that both the subjects are going above my head then what is the point in taking any of these subjects, but my family members said that you have no other option apart from these two subjects. So I took Maths. My brother was running a coaching for IIT, and I was admitted in it. But still I kept on scoring low grades. In the tests, I used to rank second or third from the bottom. In this way somehow 11th standard was completed.
    When I was in 11th standard, a guy from my village, who was in 12th standard at that time, failed. I thought that may be next year it would be my turn, and it would become a matter of insult so I thought of getting serious. I became a bit serious in 12th standard, and scored 72%. After 12th my target was IIT.
    Later I could not get Civil Engineering branch in IIT as my rank was not so good in JEE, so I got admission in MBM Engineering College, Jodhpur.
    In college also I got five backs in the first year, three backs in first semester and two backs in second semester. Then I asked my seniors for guidance. They asked me about my interest, I said that civil engineering. Then they informed me about GATE through which we can go into PSUs. Then I started preparing for GATE in the final year.
  7. While studying at MBM Engineering College, Jodhpur, how did you come to know about GATE?
    I came to know about GATE through one of my seniors Sunil Suttar, who secured AIR-22 in GATE. He took IES Master’s postal study program and had also joined IES Master’s test series. He asked me to do the same. So I joined IES Master’s postal study program and enrolled for the test series during the final year of my B.Tech. But as I had studied on my own for GATE during the final year, I could not secure a good GATE rank. My rank was 834. Then my senior told me to take admission in IIT for M.Tech, but I rejected the idea of joining IIT.
  8. How was your experience in IES Master classroom?
    When I went to my first class, Kanchan Sir was teaching SOM. I had heard a lot about Kanchan Sir. I was surprised to see that how can a person of his calibre so simple. More than IES Master, Kanchan Sir’s name is more popular. Initially I was not able to cope up with him, but then caught up with him. I felt good that I secured AIR-11 due to Kanchan Sir’s motivation.
  9. Give us an insight into your study schedule.
    I used to study 5-6 hours daily on a regular basis in addition to attending the coaching classes. In the evening, I used to go to library after the coaching classes. First of all, I used to study only those subjects that were taught in the classroom by Kanchan Sir. Later when the ESE Prelims Test Series started then I studied according to it.
  10. There are some subjects in which students generally face difficulty. For instance, Design, Structure Analysis, RCC, Steel Structure, Environment, etc. Was there any specific strategy to deal with these subjects?
    RCC was taught so well by Ghanshyam Sir that no matter from where any question is asked, you would not face any problem. Environment too was taught very well by Kanchan Sir, so there was no need of worrying about it.
    GATE Coaching
  11. How did IES Master Test Series help you during your preparation?
    While writing the test series, almost all the questions were covered. There would not be any question except a couple of questions that were there in test series, and came in the real GATE also.
  12. What points you kept in mind while preparing short notes?
    I did not prepare any short notes. Writing test series itself was like preparing short notes for me. If I ever feel like revising any subject, I used to take the test series of that particular subject, and it was covered.
  13. A day before the exam, and on the day of the exam, how did you manage your anxiety level?
    I stopped studying five days before the day of the exam, and just chilled along with my friends. On the day of exam, I even attended one of my friends’ wedding in Sikar as my exam centre too was in Sikar.
  14. Now with this GATE rank, what are your future plans?
    I will join DDA, and I hope that I would qualify ESE also.
  15. You are enrolled here at IES Master for Conventional Question Practice Program. How did you find it?
    It is going good, most of my subjects have been covered. A few subjects of Kanchan Sir are remaining, I am hoping of a good ranking in ESE as well.
  16. What would be your message to your juniors from MBM Engineering College, Jodhpur?
    I would like to say to them that without giving any second thought join the classroom program of IES Master the moment you complete your B.Tech. The study material of IES Master is the best, and if the same study material is taught in the classroom then there cannot be any coaching better than it. The expertise of Kanchan Sir, Ankit sir, and Ghanshyam Sir in their respective subjects is so good that a student taught by them will always remember them.
  17. How would you remember IES Master?
    Whenever I would come across any teacher, it would remind me of Kanchan Sir as my mentor. I will miss Kanchan Sir. If I would have to prepare for any exam again in the future, I have to join IES Master again for the teaching of Kanchan Sir. It would not be possible for me to study again without him.
  18. If you are asked to describe IES Master in one word, how would you describe it?
    Excellent
  19. You are an excellent student here at IES Master. You are one amongst the various gems IES Master has produced. We are proud of you. God bless you!
    Thank you, sir.
