Top 5 Best Strategies to crack GATE Biotechnology and Life Science Exam or 70157-96132

One morning I was sitting in my KapMan academy office about to start doing my Pre-planned office work and then one boy with his parents entered to my office. I Greeted them and offered them chairs to sit. They seemed educated but not confident about what they are about to discuss but it was sure they came for their child education. I gave them time to settle and offered water to drink. They smiled towards me and took the water and drank it. Then I asked the parents how I can help you sir?

He said, “Sir we came here regarding our child, he is intelligent and scored very good in his graduate exams”.

I turned towards the boy (Amit Kumar) and congratulated him and asked him what subject you studied during your graduation?

The boy answered, “I graduated in Biomedical Sciences from the Acharya Narendra Dev college, Delhi university and post graduated from the Madurai Kamaraj University, Tamilnadu”. He also mentioned his grades which were actually impressive. Then I asked the boy, How I can help you?

He confidently answered, Sir I want to prepare for GATE Biotechnology exam? He added he is strong in some of his topics but some he needs to study hard and because of that I suggested my parents to join a coaching institute. I learnt about your KapMan academy from my friends, how much helpful you are towards student’s future and convinced my parents to come and meet you here (South extension part I, New Delhi 110049).

I smiled, and comforted the parents, and said they have come to the right place, then I assured the them that he will get help whatever he wants. Then his father started to talk and mentioned that I had heard that coaching’s are very expensive these days and for a middle-class family like us it seemed impossible to admit our children but he insisted us so much that we had to come here finally.

I took a moment and then started to talk, first of all “yes” coaching’s could be expensive nowadays and I understand your concern clearly. Then I said, “to help you with that worry, I assure you, I will try to help your son as much as I can but first of all we should focus on Amit’s problems. So, I turned towards him and asked him few questions related to his subjects in which he is week and strong. He seemed confident and really bright student. First, I discussed with him the current scenario without any hesitation which was,

“The GATE Biotechnology exam 2021 is only four months away and for the admission in coaching he is late because already the sessions had started and they were in their mid-way of preparation”. By hearing this he seemed bit of sad and tensed. But during the discussion I sensed that he was determined and wanted to clear the exam anyhow which influenced me very much which is very rare to see in students especially when the exam date is so close. And during talking to him, he also mentioned which topics he feels hard to study for him. So, I thought maybe he needs a little push, motivation, more determination, a great strategy for the exam and support of his teacher’s as well as his parents.

Then I asked him, “if I give you some guidance and advice regarding the GATE Biotechnology and Life Science exam preparation would you follow that for your coming months?”

He and his parents looked at me surprisingly and he said yes, I will follow your instructions. So, I advised him with some great strategies for the GATE biotechnology exam which I usually advice my students in the KapMan Academy before appearing in the GATE exams every year.

1. Have faith and believe in yourself.

I advised him, first of all you should have faith in GOD (in the entity you believe most) and trust in yourself. Do not feel depressed, Sad, tensed or anxious at any time. If you feel panicked or so, stop doing everything at that time and sit in silence, take deep breaths for almost five minutes and calm your emotions. Do not overthink unnecessary negative thoughts try to block them. From this day, start your day by meditation for few minutes and say the words loudly, “you can do anything”, “you can do anything”, “you can do anything”, “you can do anything” and repeat it so on”.

2. Set your Goals.

Second, I advised him, go to your home today and set your goal for the next four coming months. Write them on the paper in large font, and pin it on your study table and stick to that goal until you accomplish it. Read and study your GATE 2021 syllabus. Make schedule to your each and every topic. Study the important units first and on time. Manage your time because your “time is valuable” for the coming months, do not waste it on any unnecessary things.

3. Follow SRP rule.

Yes, follow SRP rule, which is STUDY, REVISION and PRACTICE. Make sure you choose right books or study material for your GATE biotechnology exam (KapMan Academy e-study material or offline study package and study very thoroughly each and every topic and then asses yourself by taking tests. If you feel unsatisfied with yourself revise the topics again and practice them by taking self-assessment tests and repeat it again and again for coming months. You should know that its not an easy exam so you have to determined and kind of drown yourself in the respective study realm.

4. Make the right choices.

Do not surf for the random pages on google or Wikipedia they could be distracting and not be helpful. Therefore, read from right and authentic books or research articles or use study materials such as GATE biotechnology study material by KapMan Academy. Do not waste your time on unnecessary google search or social media. Avoid them as much as possible. For more help you can follow some you tube channels for your study related to GATE exam (KapMan Academy YouTube channel).

5. Never give up.

Keep In mind that life is always about the challenges and this might be your first life test or challenge GOD (whatever faith you have) has given you. Therefore, never give up. Stick to your goals, schedules and books. You can also take help from our teachers and your college teachers for guidance.

6. Always have plan B

Last advise, I Gave him that always have plan B if anyhow you are not successful in following these above mentioned rules or you could not crack GATE exam, Do not loose hope we are here to help you enroll here and prepare for the next year GATE exam or you can also appear for other Life sciences national competitive exams like CSIR-NET, DBT, ICMR etc. simultaneously.

I told him to follow these rules strictly for four months after that it will become his habit and they will also help him achieve any goals he sets in future. I gave him access to our study material library (e-study material) and KapMan academy so he can visit and discuss his problems with us. For information I told him and his parents to call us or mail us ( or 70157-96132) as they feel comfortable.

He seemed confident and promised with me that he will follow these strategies from this day and also contact us at any need ( or 70157-96132 ) and would also come back with good news that he had cleared the GATE Biotechnology Exam. I smiled and wished good luck for his future. And that is how he and his parents left my office with full of confidence and hope for their child future.

I wish Goodluck and success to all students who are preparing and struggling for the GATE exam preparation. If you feel anything worth discussion or face any doubts and problems regarding the exam or preparation feel free to call us or write us”. or 70157-96132
