## Conclusion

Mathematics is the most scoring subject in the GATE examination. Many students manage to score full marks. Do not mug the formulas directly, instead understand the concept first to retain them for a longer time. Practice regularly and take as many mock tests as possible.

It is important to analyze your preparation so that you can make appropriate changes in your strategy.

Keep working hard, and do not lose hope.

*Good luck with all your future endeavours!*
