Unacademy user
sir Currently I am a student of B.Tech 4th year mechanical engineering. I am thinking to join made easy delhi after the completion of my graduation for ESE GATE combined. Mostly it will begin in June ... After which I will have 7 months for prelims. I am doubtful if I will be able to complete the course by then and have sufficient time for revision. Till now I have not undergone any preparation for it. Please suggest me what should I do... And is there any pre requisite that I need to do before joining the coaching. Thank you sir
