GATE MINING is not that tough as it seems to be. There are few reasons why we are saying so:

i.          Mining engineering students are very less as compared to other branches.

ii.         There is no much development since many years in terms of technology, methods etc so syllabus is more or less same every year. Hence questions are framed from same sets of existing formulas and topics.

iii.       Mining books are also very few so, professors who sets question have limited text book access.

iv.       Compared to other branches there are not many companies who recruit from GATE score so students are not much enthusiastic regarding it and hence less number of candidates.

 How to prepare for GATE Mining Exam?

As said above GATE Mining is not that tough. You can crack it by following simple steps.

i.       Don’t waste your time in searching for a coaching classes as you won’t find a good institute. Reason being that compare to other branches there are not so many exams in mining field like IES, State Level Exams etc so no mining engineer will dare to give his full time in giving coaching just for one exam, also  number of students are very less and scattered too. You can take help from your seniors doing M.Tech/PhD as they have cleared GATE exam and have broader knowledge. If you find any good professional coaching institute then you can go for it. 

ii.       GATE mining syllabus is same as your B.Tech syllabus so try to make good notes of your syllabus. You can find various notes in our blog-
