The study material in the form of correspondence course is also available for all four subjects Botany, Zoology, Biochemistry and Microbiologyas well as Chemistry.
- While preparing for GATE Life Science exam one should choose the subject in starting and go for torough study of the same. Choosing Botany/Zoology with Biochemistry or Botany + Zoology is always more scoring in our view because of limited syllabus and to the point questions.
- Never try to attempt guess because any wrong answer may changes your rank by hundreds
