Guided GATE Foundation Program

Guided GATE Foundation Program seamlessly integrates preparation for B.Tech Semester-exams with foundational preparation for GATE and similar competitive exams. GATE is an aspirational gateway for Government jobs as well as for higher studies in Engineering disciplines. Students can appear for this test after third year or 6th semester of B.Tech course. Regulatory bodies like NAAC, NBA and AICTE encourage colleges to offer GATE coaching to their students. Most colleges also aspire to offer GATE exam prep to their students, but given the constraints of faculty quality and availability, span of GATE syllabus, preoccupation with semester exams, and their belief that students in 1st and 2nd year may not be motivated or ready for GATE preparation, they either do nothing, or attempt some sessions in the 3rd or final year. By this time however, it is quite late and the opportunity to lay the foundational rigor is quite past. 

Guided GATE Foundation Program enables college faculty to seamlessly integrate the semester curriculum with GATE Foundamtion modules, and lead students to higher order technical understanding and rigor of subject matter, so that when the time comes for GATE exam, students have had the vital exposure and understanding of the challenge to commit themselves gainfully to the goal. 

GGFP Proposition

The Guided GATE Foundation Program  enables colleges in the following ways:

  • Offering a GATE Foundation Program can boost Institution’s reputation and standing, while gaining crucial points towards NAAC, and NBA accreditation. It showcases faculty’s ability to handle complex concepts beyond B.Tech curriculum. While it remains relevant to all students for semester prep, and does not strain college time or faculty teaching load, it will ceratinly raise the overall academic rigor of the courses. GGFP can be offered in all 2Learn-B.Tech courses relevant to GATE exams, and can be scheduled to integrate seamlessly with semester studies. 
  • All 2Learn-B.Tech courses follow the curriculum of individual paper codes of Affiliating Universities, and a super-set curriculum is offered for Private and Autonomous institutions mostly meeting their curricular requirements.
  • GGFP is based on 2Learn’s Active-Learning pedagogy. The Session Plan is organised around 8-12 GGFP sessions. Two classroom sessions are scheduled before each GGFP session. It is recommended that students study the Essentials segment of the allocated course portion before the 1st classroom session, then study the Advanced segment and come to classroom for Problem Practice, and finally study the professional portion and come for GATE Problem practice on the weekend. GGFP addresses higher order concepts and problems via a) GATE Problem Solving Modules explaining how to address various past year problems for that portion of syllabus, then students are expected to attempt a few GATE Problem Solving Quiz. In the class, faculty will use ActiveQuiz realtime quiz module to pose several past year GATE problems and help students solve them. Finally the Student Quiz contains several unsolved and solved GATE problems for practice. Module details are available on the Pedagogy Page
  • This laddered approach of progressively higher difficulty problems will boost student confidence for problem solving, build analytical ability, be most beneficial for Semester exams, Professional recruitment opportunities, GATE and other competitive exams. Weekend sessions may be online or offline as per college.
  • The 2-teacher combination takes away most of the load from college faculty, brings in diverse ways of teaching the same concepts, and enriches students. In all GGFP can be a tremendous value creator for the college.
