Questions/Concepts Never Heard Of
Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) with Confusing Options
Questions from Unprepared Subjects
Don’t take the unwanted risk or the greed of solving a question that you have never heard before as it will lead to negative marking along with time wastage. Hence, it is advisable to skip the question and proceed to the next. Be a smart candidate!
The amount of time you will invest in trying to solve (or even reading repeatedly) a question that you are completely unaware of will ultimately snatch away the time from you that can be adequately spent on solving questions that you are 50-60% sure.

There are times when even a simple MCQ comes with confusing options that not only eat up your crucial time but also debits your marks if attempted casually. So, a straight NO, to such questions!
In MCQs, choose the correct option only when you are 110% sure of the answer, or else get ready for the negative marking. Guesswork can only be implemented in the case of Numerical Answer Type Questions (NATs).

Since the GATE syllabus is vast, many times students are unable to cover the entire syllabus and prefer selective study and preparation. However, the GATE paper comprises questions from all subjects of the pre-defined syllabus.
So, in case you come across a question from a subject that you did not prepare at all, you should skip that question. In case you still attempt that question, you will be doing more harm than good!
However, if time permits, you can take the liberty to attempt questions from unprepared subjects only in the case of Numerical Answer Type Questions.
