Production and Industrial Engineering GATE 2019 Preparation Strategy
“Without a plan, a dream is just a wish.”
Aspirants must make day plan, like how much hours should one subject be given. For instance, it is recommended to atleast give 1 hour daily yo general aptitude and mathematics. And atleast 2 hours daily to the subjects of Production and Industrial Engineering.
For better results, try to restrict weeks for particular sections. And once you have studied some topic, start making time revisions because it would be worthless if you keep moving forward without memorizing previous topics. Try to solve maximum questions on every section, to keep up the accuracy with speed.
Scope After Production and Industrial Engineering GATE 2019 Exam
The candidates after Production and Industrial Engineering GATE 2019 Exam can either go for higher studies like M.Tech or M.E. from IITs/IISc/NITs or can apply for jobs profiles.
