1. Be Regular (revise everyday)
2. Be Confident & Optimistic till the end (VERY IMPORTANT) of GATE exam.
3. Don't leave any topic ( I left DIGITAL in 2014 & in GATE they asked two very simple questions which I didn't knew, regretted afterwards )
4. Make a plan to finish the whole syllabus before 2 months from GATE.
5. Solve previous year GATE problems (at least twice) seriously & try to solve yourself before going to take help from anyone or seeing solution.
6. Solve as many (good) problems as possible from different sources like Work-Book given in your coaching, from different books, from internet (helped me a lot).
7. Don't hesitate googling (If u are in any kind of doubt try to find it on web from good sources only,Stack-exchange,Wiki,Gate-overflow,Facebook GATE-group,etc.)
8. Finally,TEST Series is MUST. (Join MADE_EASY & GATE-FORUM Test Series, give as many Tests as possible to know how your preparation is going. Don't panic if your marks are not that good as you expected & Don't leave the tests for the last time that I will give test after finishing whole Syllabus Bcoz u will find the syllabus actually never ends :P)
THANK YOU & ALL THE BEST TO ALL THE FUTURE GATE ASPIRANTS :)
|In IIT-K written test was way more tougher than GATE-2015. There were questions like asked in TIFR exam & bcoz of multiple choice options with More than 1 correct answer, it made paper a lot tougher & could not solve more than 18 questions out of 30 with 6 questions of Numerical type to fill in the blanks due to which was not shortlisted afterwards.|
In IIT-D, they gave 3 subjective questions,
<1> What will be the time complexity of no. of operations while adding 2 numbers m+n where m & n are binary numbers.
<2> Write an algorithm IN PURE ENGLISH (they didn't even asked to write Pseudocode strictly). Given a queue having jumbled characters of 3 colors say R,B,G & size of the queue is ""n"".You are allowed to take 1 or 2 variables extra & one extra queue to sort them in such a way that G comes before B & B comes before R.
<3>In a min heap having [ 2^(h+1) - 1 ] nodes. we have to find the maximum node. The probability of going right or left to a node is same from the root. We start from root & go to the leaf, we stop if we reach the leaf node. Than what is the probability that we find the maximum node.
No one was eliminated after written & there were 2 interview rounds, after the 1st I was eliminated, they asked me about my written paper & asked how I solved & asked to draw the graph of logx, e^x , their intersection point, logx cutting the X- axis, etc.

study the concepts properly from standard books and good teachers
as i am from IT branch i didnt had AUTOMATA,COMPILER CO as my btech subject ,this was the first time i studied these subject which was very intimidating.
i currently work in MNC and prepared with my job.
gate is not a tough exam if i can get this rank with these constraints by studying only 3 months before exam. surely you can get a rank under 50 with a little more effort
TEST SERIES is a must give as many as subject and full length test as possible and try to ace those test.
once again GATE is not at all a tough exam compared to the level of preparation required in CAT or JEE (if you have not yet realised this wait for the D DAY) with a little extra effort and 3-5 months time of your precious life you can fulfil your dream called "IIT"
with respect to IIT Kanpur and IIT delhi if you get an interview call please prepare for it whole heartedly many good people coudnt clear the interview because of no revesion.
the lab facilities and infrastructure for computer science is awesome there as compared to other iits (iit roorkee , kgp and guwahati ). iit madras,kanpur,bombay,delhi,iisc have very good computing resources such as supercomputers, high performance graphic labs, visual reconstruction labs, ultra high speed networking lab)
IIT delhi interview - you can only clear your interview there if you have studied and prepared out of intrest.
they will dig down through your logic and asq you questions about reasons that you used in solving that problem
they asqed me to formally prove my logicwith induction , graph theory, probability.etc. they asqed me multiple solutions for the same problem.
for those IITs with direct admission sit back and relax wait for the subsequent lists and never get dishartened
if everything goes against you be ready to try your luck in spot round

A panel of 3 senior professors,they ask algorithm and other computer science questions. Questions can range from simple stack-linked list puzzles to b+ trees and other fundamentals .Don't try to fake It mainly revolves around your interest, your past experiences. They may ask about your work and your experience during b-tech and after that ("if industry experience then don't add that much but still you have more to speak about ").

IITB--rejected in interview
IITG--there was a written test for MTECH TCS but more preference was given to gate score
IITP--i have not to take admission there after seeing its campus

You just have to take a few more tests and go through few more interviews. Few other colleges like IIITB are considered equivalent to newer iits in terms of education and placement for MTech. And you can get IIITB at a lower score. (611 GATE score is the cutoff for 3rd round this year from what I've gathered from facebook comments, no interviews).|
But definitely aim for IITs :D
|I appeared for IIITH and ISI Kolkata interviews, here's the experience for both:|
My interview was on the 2nd day of scheduled interviews. I was the last candidate to be interviewed that day. My interview was completely opposite of what I had expected :D I had read accounts that the faculties are friendly and help along. That was definitely NOT the case with me. Perhaps they wanted to end the day with a bang :D or perhaps it was just because I had also applied for PhD (not my first preference, though). They said at the start, "Oh isko PhD karna hai! Lete hai na iska ache se" :D
Now the interview:
They asked which subjects, I said I'd be comfortable answering questions in AI cause that's what I've worked in for past year and a half, and also Algorithms. They started with questions on logic, the discrete math logic, argument given, AI contains logic, so you've to answer that :D Questions were quite simple, answerable.
Then we moved on to countability, no where had I meantioned TOC as one of my subjects :D
how many functions binary functions from a set of n numbers?
What if n is infinite? how many functions?
How many programs in the universe? I said infinite.
Are they countable? I said, yes. How? I start by counting my own programs :D (I actually said that :p). That's too funny an answer (Then they actually said that :( )..
Name few countable/uncountable sets.
Is a set of rational numbers countable? (I said no, which is wrong. Here's when they laughed at my face)
Then I was asked to get up and draw curves on the board. Gaussian distribution, y = x^2, y = xlgx. (when the y = x^2 curve didn't pass the origin, they questioned that instead of assuming that I'm not used to drawing stuff on board and the marker sort of slips :D)
Write an algorithm to check if two strings are anagram. I suggested one. He said he doesn't think it'd work and gave me two hints for two different programs. Explained the first one. The second one was very similar to what I was explaining so I got confused to what he actually wanted different. Then he asked how much time will it need. I answered in terms of complexity and he asked what is the exact time. Answered that.
There was one lone question directly related to AI: Bayes theorem.
No question on my project, which was also in AI. They did however seem impressed with certificates of online courses (Machine Learning by Andrew Ng on coursera and Artificial Intelligence by Dan Klien on edx) That was the only moment when they seemed impressed in the interview.
It lasted about 45 minutes when others' that day lasted about 15-20 minutes. I had made many blunders and ultimately, I was sure that I won't get it. :D
These interviewers were the exact opposite of my IIITH ones. They were extremly frank and helpful. They started with frank questions like hwo did you reach here, where are you staying, what job offers do you have at hand and what will you do if you get placed in TCS from ISI? ( I had TCS job offer in hand). Which subjects? I had studied discrete maths for ISI, so said so along with AI and algorithms and TOC (I had studied that after iiith bluder :D) I specified countablilty so they asked question on that.
Name countable sets.
I said rational numbers, and they asked me to prove how they are countable.
How many prime numbers in the universe, infinite... prove that. I did. I got stuck in between and they were very kind to help me out made me see where I got stuck.
How many permutations of numbers 1-9 such that the sum is 45 between the digits 4 and 5?
Same question with few added restrictions. Sum between 3, 4 should be 34. 2, 3 should be 23 and 1, 2 should be 12.
I derived those while they patiently waited and gave hints whenever needed.
How many steps of comparators needed in the minimum to sort n numbers, given that you have infinite comparators. Draw the circuit and explain.
Algorithm to sort a linked list.
Everything was to be explained on board. I was at the teacher's desk inside a classroom while 7 interviewers sat on benches :D
It lasted about 50 minutes. Not as many questions, but it took time to think of the answers to those asked.
Ultimately, it was very pleasant!
I had very high hopes for ISI kolkata and absloutely no hopes for IIITH, the results came out. I didn't clear ISI and clearde IIITH! :D
All fine with me, IIITH was the first preference anyway :)
