GATE 2018

A twenty-year-old final-year student of Computer Science, Bhargav Thankey of Ahmedabad brought laurels to the city by scoring a perfect 1000/1000 in the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE). His All India Rank 4 in GATE 2018 implies that Bhargav can walk into any college of his choosing for a Post-Graduation course.

This year, the GATE exam was conducted by Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati on behalf of the Ministry of Human Resources Development, Government of India. It is estimated that more than 8.5 lakh students sat for the exam, held across 23 different disciplines of Engineering.

A classroom student of I.C.E GATE Institute in Ahmedabad, Bhargav, who loves listening to country music – especially John Denver – in his free time shared that he owed his success to his parents, his college teachers, and the “absolutely awesome” faculty at I.C.E.

Here’s what he had to say about his journey toward scoring a perfect 1000/1000 in GATE 2018:

I appeared for GATE because I wanted to study at India’s premier institutes like IISc and IIT. Now I am going to pursue M. Tech at IISc.

After joining ICE Gate Academy in July 2016, I started preparing for some subjects straight away. As soon as the subject was completed in class, I solved its questions asked in previous GATE exams. I used this strategy for some of my favourite subjects.

For other subjects (the ones I didn’t enjoy), I started preparing in November after my university exams. When possible, I used reference books but some subjects were very tedious and I prepared those from notes.

I was completely prepared by January 15, and then, all I did was attempt online mock tests.”

It brings us great joy to see our students realize their dreams.
