8- No last-minute preparation for any new topics:

The students are advised not to go for any new topic at the last moment in the examination. It may increase the nervousness as well as confusion in the mind of the candidate. Rather than going for any other new topic the candidate should revise the topic they already prepare for.

we know that the GATE  2019 results are out since Friday This exam is conducted for undergraduate candidates in Engineering to join NITs, IITs, and secure PSU jobs as well. From many of us who had appeared the exam some of us would have passed the exam who deserve to get big congratulations for passing this big hurdle, while some might be depressed sitting in a corner for not passing the exams even if they had tried so hard. If you belong to the second category then let us inform you our dear friend, GATE is something which has a very high difficulty level.So, While it is a great moment to celebrate for candidates who have successfully cracked GATE 2019, others who haven't its not the time to mourn but the time to focus on other career opportunities and options.Here are a few options for those who were unsuccessful in clearing GATE: 1. If you have totally made up your mind for a job and have no plan for higher studies then You can choose to apply to various jobs in the technical stream for which separate exams are conducted. Some of the jobs include those at AAI, ISRO, BARC, BEL, ECIL, etc. for which exams similar to GATE are conducted.2. If you want to go for higher studies then there is no point of feeling helpless you can opt to join institutes/universities that conduct their own entrance exams for their postgraduate programs. These include BITS Pilani, IIIT Hyderabad, IIIT Bangalore, CSIR, DAIICT, and ISI Kolkata etc. IITs/IISc no doubt provide good educational guidance in those courses which come under Non-GATE courses. Hence, you can join these prestigious institutions like the IITs and IISc for those Post Graduate courses that do not require the GATE score.3. If you really want to go for GATE then there's no harm to go for one more try. As there's this famous proverb Try Try Try again until You succeed. If you have failed instead of feeling dejected, it's important to focus on what is to be done next. If you are really dedicated enough and do not want to go for other options, then you can give GATE another try. For this what you need to do is to analyze and understand why you couldn't crack GATE this time and work on your weaknesses before appearing for GATE again. Plan and execute properly.4. In addition to this, there are many government examinations like Railways, Banks and also corporate sectors. You can give them a try which would lead you to stabilization of your career. while doing these jobs especially if you do wasn't to get into private sectors you can simultaneously prepare to appear for GATE again instead of dropping a year.Hence there is no point of feeling dejected if you couldn't clear the examination this time.
