    NATA Last Minute Preparation Tips

    With only a few days left for the NATA 2023 exam, most of the students might wonder how to revise the important topics and increase their speed within such a short time? Consistent preparation on the part of the candidates is key to success in the examination.

    Last-minute preparation is not meant for learning new topics which were unclear as it might lead to more confusion and hamper the overall preparation. Candidates should thoroughly revise the topics that they have studied minutely during their preparation. Solving previous year’s NATA question papers is an effective way to enhance one’s time management capabilities for the final examination.

    Be Creative

    As we talk about NATA, candidates should know that creativity is the key. Candidates must be adept in practicing drawing as sketching is the key to this entrance test. Candidates should practice sketching as much as they can in order to enhance their skills.

    Time Management

    The paper of NATA is long and tricky and candidates need to make sure that they are able to speed up their writing skills accordingly. One of the best ways to enhance speed is by solving more and more questions from the previous year's papers and attempting mock tests.

    Divide the Sections

    Firstly, candidates need to segregate the important topics based on their difficulty level in order to analyze how much time it would take for them to attempt the sections. Candidates should always focus on attempting the sections that they find easier first before moving to the difficult topics. It is possibly one of the best ways to attempt the NATA 2023 exam paper.

    How Scores Are Calculated for the GATE Exam - The GATE 2023 exam was conducted on February 4, 5,11,12, 2023. The GATE 2023 result has been declared on March 16, 2023. The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) 2023 was conducted in multiple sessions and time slots for 29 subjects. Some GATE courses, such as mechanical, computer science, civil engineering, and electrical, will be evaluated in more than one session. GATE is one of the most popular entrance exams in India to get admission into various postgraduate programs in IITs, NITs, IIITs, and PSU jobs. The GATE 2023 normalisation technique is used to generate an unbiased score because the level of difficulty of the same paper conducted in two slots may differ.
