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?
  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.

GATE 2019 Topper (AIR-7, CE) Shreyans Mehta Shares His Success Story

Hello friends, I am Shreyans Mehta. I have secured AIR-7 in GATE 2019. I did my B.Tech from College of Engineering, Udaipur. I was a part of IES Master Regular Classroom Program, and currently I am pursuing Conventional Question Practice Program. I find Kanchan Sir, Ghanshyam Sir, Ankit Sir, and Ayush Sir simply amazing.

  1. Take us through that moment when you got to know about the result?
    I was waiting for the result since 2 O’ Clock as I was expecting the result, but the result came out at 5 PM. I was expecting my rank under 20 but it was awesome to know that I have achieved AIR-7. I got congratulations from my family and friends, everyone who had supported me. And, I want to say thanks to everyone.
  2. When did you start preparing for GATE?
    In the final year of my college, I started my preparation. I planned it earlier, but I could not begin my preparation that time. Then I took coaching in the final year of my college. After this I continued, and I got AIR-281 in my final year.
  3. How did you get to know about IES Master?
    My brother was a student of IES Master. He cleared ESE in his first attempt, and he wanted me to take admission here.
  4. What were your marks in GATE 2018?
    I scored 83 marks in GATE 2018, and secured AIR-51.
  5. What were your marks in GATE 2019?
    My marks were 82.15. My GATE score was 959, and I secured AIR-7 in GATE 2019.
  6. Which program were you a part of here at IES Master?
    I took Regular Classroom. I was from RM-03 batch of 2017-18 session.
  7. How was your experience with IES Master classroom program?
    Before coming here, I somehow knew about IES Master because my brother was also a part of IES Master classroom. My experience here was very good. IES Master has a thorough approach. In the classrooms, each and every student is given proper attention despite there being so many students. The teachers are very helpful. Even though we ask our doubts in between the class, the doubts are cleared very well. The response of teachers is very good. Concept building is done in a very good manner. The pace at which subjects are taught is very appropriate and suitable.
  8. How was this year’s GATE paper compared to previous year’s?
    This year the paper was quite different from the pattern which GATE follows. It was a little bit tough. The first set was tougher than the second set. My paper was from set-2.
  9. How was the part-1 of your GATE 2019 paper?
    Generally Mathematics is of 15 marks, but this year it was less about 7 to 8 marks in both Set-1 and Set-2.  But in Set-2, the Mathematics questions were quite easier as compared to Set-1. Talking about Aptitude, it comes generally easy, and this year too it was easy. Looking at the English part, the level of questions was a bit higher when compared to the previous years’ papers.
  10. Take us through the technical part.
    The technical part is generally divided into 1-mark and 2-mark questions. The 1-mark questions were simple and easy. Talking about 2-marks questions, the numerical type (NAT) questions were tougher as compared to non-NAT questions in which options were available. I think this year’s paper was tougher than the previous years.
    GATE Coaching
  11. What was your overall strategy with regard to GATE 2019?
    Starting from the concept building which was already done in IES Master classrooms, I used to solve conventional questions that were provided in the classrooms. Solving those questions cleared all my concepts, and they gave me an approach to solve questions. Then I used to solve previous years’ questions to judge that I have covered all the parts. I think that the notes provided to us in the classrooms were good enough. After doing previous years’ papers, if I come across any new question, which was very rare, I used to solve them there only, and I used to learn from them there only. After that I used to go for subject-wise tests. I used to analyse them very properly because test series is very important for GATE preparation. Knowledge is an important part, but producing it is much more important than just having it. Test series was very important. I used to give tests, and analyse my mistakes, and reduce my errors and improve my accuracy because in GATE, it’s all about accuracy.
  12. What was your rank in test series generally?
    I used to be in top-20 for most of the tests. In some of the tests, I didn’t perform very well but in most of the tests I used to be in top-20 students. In some of the tests, I even secured rank 1 and 2.
  13. How did you go about preparing short notes?
    I used to solve previous years. After my first revision, I went ahead with a simple approach focussing on the part important in GATE, and then the part tough to remember, and finally the parts that are to be revised. Keeping all these things in mind, I used to confine the notes as much as I can. After giving tests, if I came across any new concepts then I used to incorporate them in my notes.
  14. Tell us about your daily schedule.
    It wasn’t fixed, but generally I used to study for 7-8 hours as I was free from college, and I have to study only. There were only two main things, sleeping and studying, apart from other basic things. Most of the time, I used to study only. It wasn’t fixed that I have to study for 10 hours or 8 hours. Some days it was 3-4 hours and some days 6-8 hours.
  15. What kept you motivated during your preparation?
    When I used to give test series, sometimes I scored very low and felt de-motivated, but my elder brother, who is my idol, very much helped me in keeping me motivated. I used to call him and talk to him for hours. I think that everyone should have someone to talk and take guidance from. My brother was my motivation.
  16. Tell us a little about IES Master study material.
    IES Master study material is very consolidated and very confined, and it is very relevant to all the competitive exams, and the language is very much easy to build your basics and to go for toughest to toughest questions.
  17. What about the doubt clearing session here at IES Master?
    Whatever the level of your doubt is, it is given equal preference. No matter what is the level of your doubt, it is cleared in a very good way. The teachers here help a lot in clearing your doubts.
  18. It is a general perception that GATE is getting tough with every passing year. Is it so?
    No, I don’t think so because this year GATE was conducted by IIT Madras, and it’s a general perception that the paper set by IIT Madras is a bit tougher. I don’t think it is getting tougher because last year the paper was very easy. The pattern is same. The paper comes easy. You just have to work on your accuracy.
    I would say for GATE, there are selective things that you have to study. You don’t have to cover a lot of things for GATE. Apart from that, you have to practice questions a lot. There are very selected and limited type of questions asked in GATE so I think you must practice those questions very well. Also, you should solve the previous year book at least two to three times to get a good rank. In the end, I would say all the very best.
  19. Share some tips to improve accuracy.
    For improving accuracy, test series plays an important role. Each student commits different mistakes, there is no such tip. I think he should judge from the test series only that what types of mistakes he is committing, and by taking required steps he can reduce those errors.
  20. What was your strategy for the day of exam and the day before it?
    Students generally prepare notes of 15-20 pages, and try to mug up those pages. But I left all my books and notebooks a day before the exam because my brother asked me not to look at my notes, and I followed his instructions only. This helped me to be confident, calm and composed during the paper.
  21. What would be your priorities after GATE, PSUs or higher studies?
    I am planning to apply for PSUs, and getting into any of the top PSUs but my top priority for this year is to get into Engineering Services. Keeping my options open, I would prefer PSUs.
  22. Are you a part of IES Master Conventional Question Classroom Practice Program?
    Yes sir.
  23. Tell us a little about IES Master Conventional Question Practice Program.
    Basically during CQPP, students are required to solve a book which includes every single subject. The book is very consolidated, and one can find every type of question in that book. I think that it is a must for any student preparing for ESE Mains.
  24. Tell us a little about your college.
    I am from College of Technology and Engineering Udaipur, which is a government college and talking about the environment of GATE and ESE, I think that specifically about our Civil Engineering department it’s not much there like other colleges. Students usually don’t prepare for GATE, and most of them want to go into private sector or placed somewhere. I think GATE and other competitive exams are very necessary, and whatever the environment is I think they must apply for GATE and ESE.
  25. What would be your message to your college juniors?
    I will say if I have done it, you can also. It’s very easy. You just have to dream big, you just have to work hard, and you can easily do it, and please dream big.
  26. Tell us about your schooling.
    I have done my sixth to twelfth class schooling from Central Academy Jodhpur.
  27. Tell us a little about your family.
    I belong to Jodhpur. In my family, I have two elder brothers, my mother, my father, and my grandmother. My father is a businessman along with one of my elder brothers. My eldest brother is Assistant Garrison Engineer in Military Engineering Services (MES).
  28. You have been an excellent student here at IES Master. We thank you so much for giving us time, and for sharing your experience. God bless you!
    Thank you sir, it’s an honour.

Selective ESE and GATE Preparation through Subject-wise Improvement Program

Engineering graduates, who are aspiring for ESE, GATE and PSUs, and do not feel the need of getting the help of subject experts in all subjects can take the Subject-wise Improvement Program. This program, as the name indicates, offers selective guidance as required by the student. Designed exclusively for engineering students from Civil, Mechanical, Electrical, and Electronics & Communications streams, this study program, also known as SWIP, helps ESE and GATE aspirants choose the subject(s) of their own choice or choose from any of subject packages that are on offer.

It would not be wrong to call the Subject-wise Improvement Program as an improvement plan as it helps engineering students to achieve what they are capable of, and bring them a step closer to their dream goals. The prime objective of this program is to help students who are not comfortable with any particular subject while preparing for ESE and GATE. The best thing about this study program is that the students have the flexibility to choose the subject(s) of their own choice or choose from any of subject packages that are offered.

Salient Features of Subject-wise Improvement Program

Expert guidance in small packs: The program is offered as small packages allowing students to opt only those subjects in which they need guidance of experts.

Spare time for self study and practice: Preparing for ESE and GATE exams demands a meticulously planned preparation strategy with enough time to implement the strategy. Subject-wise Improvement Program enables ESE and GATE aspirants save fair amount of time and energy for self-study and self-practice.

Value for money: By registering for Subject-wise Improvement Program, students are investing their own or parent’s hard-earned money only where it’s actually required.

Better understanding of concepts: Preparing for top engineering exams like ESE, GATE, and PSUs demand in-depth understanding of concepts. The subject-wise improvement program at IES Master has been structured keeping this in mind.

Fulfil your learning needs: As the program allows students to select from the pre-defined subject packs or make the subject packs of their own, by taking the subject-wise improvement program of IES Master, students can meet their learning needs, while driving closer to their career objective.

Quality guidance: The best thing about subject-wise improvement program is the experienced faculty of IES Master, and quality content and study material, which itself is a benchmark in the preparation for ESE and GATE.

GATE 2019 Topper (AIR-3, CE) Paramjeet Kumar Dubey Shares His Success Story

Hi my name is Paramjeet Kumar Dubey, I secured AIR-3 in GATE 2019. For the preparation of GATE and ESE, I came to Delhi and enrolled at IES Master in its Regular Classroom program.

  8. How did you perform in IES Master test series?
    My performance in IES Master test series was not very good. But I used to bookmark those questions that I could not solve, and I used to go through those questions during free time. One week before the exam also, I
    practiced the bookmarked questions.
  9. How did you remain motivated during your preparation?
    As I am from Sainik School Nalanda, where we are prepared for NDA, most of my friends are in
    Indian Army as officers. I also wanted to become a Class-1 officer. When I came to NIT Patna, I saw that most of my seniors were employed in good PSUs. So, I also wanted to crack GATE and ESE and get a good position in PSUs.

    IES Master study material I think is one of the best material available in the market. I suggest that every student should study these materials for their preparation of GATE and ESE.

  13. How about technical part?
    The trend was quite different as you can see that in
    last two-three years, the question level was from moderate to easy. But this year, most of the questions were of moderate to tough category. That’s why most of the students could not score good marks in GATE 2019.
  14. What was your preparation strategy?
    GATE preparation is all about accuracy. If you are accurate, you can score good marks. So, practice is the only key to success.

    I used to study daily for
    round six hours in two shifts of three hours each.
  16. What was your plan for the D-day, and how you executed it?
    Reach the examination centre as early as possible, and if possible, visit the centre a day before the examination to determine the time required to reach the centre, and get rid of the fear of missing the exam.
