GATE 2020 TEXTILE ENGINEERING SYLLABUS
NATIONAL LEVEL ONLINE TEST
Textile Engineering and Fibre Science is one of the most challenging and primary fields of engineering. It deals with the application of scientific and engineering principles to the design and control of all aspects of fiber, textile, and apparel processes, products, and machinery.
The syllabus of Textile Engineering and Fibre Science is divided into 5 major sections namely Textile Fibers, Yarn Manufacture, Fabric Manufacture, Textile Testing, and Chemical Processing. Other than these topics candidates also have to prepare for Engineering Mathematics and General Aptitude sections. 70% weightage will be given to subject specific questions and 15% to maths & general aptitude questions.

Sometimes most of the candidates forget to incorporate some of the important points in their preparation plan or sometimes it is difficult for candidates to find the right starting point. For all those candidates we have prepared a few preparation tips that will them in building a good preparation strategy. And the first and foremost preparation tip is to know your syllabus and exam pattern which is mentioned above in detail. After reading that candidates can have a look at some of the best preparation tips:
Candidates can divide their preparation plan as short term and long term study plan. The implementation of any of the plans is totally based on the choice and comfort of candidates.
We have created a time table for you by taking into consideration that most of the candidates spend an average of 5-6 hours daily to prepare for the exam.
|Time Allotment||Activities to Do|
|5:00 AM to 8:00 AM||Pen down the important topics and scan all the important points|
|8:00 AM to 10:00 AM||Take a Break|
|10:00 AM to 1:00 PM||Pick up a Major Topic|
|1:00 PM to 5:00 PM||Take a Break|
|6:00 PM to 9:00 PM||Go through all the topics that you have covered in the day or you can also continue with the preparation of Major Topic|
|10:00 PM||A quick go through of the Notes and try to sleep early|
Taking the online tests or mock test is one of the important steps of your preparation plan. The mock test will help you boost up your confidence level as it gives the feel of the real exam. With the help of an online test, you will be able to judge your strong and week points and you can prepare for your weaker sections again. Candidates can also take help from video lectures. The benefits of video lectures are:
GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) is a national level exam which is conducted for admission to M.Tech and Ph.D. programs. There are 25 papers in GATE. The exam pattern and syllabus of every paper is different. Candidates can check the complete syllabus of other papers from the links given below.
