"THE GATE ACADEMY course content was well organized which gave me a direction to start with. It was easy to cover large number of topics in small amount of time. Mock Test questions were really well planned with a mix of easy, moderate and difficult questions which gave a feeling of actual GATE. I would suggest all aspirants to start early as more and more PSU’s are recruiting through GATE which would increase the competition. "
