Speed vs Accuracy | What is more Important? | GATE Exam 2021

Hello Aspirants,

In my opinion, one of the biggest challenges that one faces during the preparation of any entrance examination is to decide whether to focus more on speed or accuracy and how to achieve an optimal balance of both.

Due to this many students are not able to perform to their caliber in the exam, so the question becomes how to get around this problem.

In Earlier GATE exams the balance was tilted more in the favor of speed but now due to the inclusion of Numerical Type Questions the balance is tilted back in the favor of accuracy. Let me explain how.

Mostly, Numerical Type Questions are not straightforward question, you have to do a lot of computation to get around those, so if your accuracy is good you need not look at that question twice but if not you may be worried and may have to check that question twice or thrice due to which you may lose time and end up attempting less than expected number of problems and results may be worse than expected.


So what should a student do during the preparation to avoid getting into this kind of situation is that during the initial stages of preparation you must focus more on Accuracy and less on speed, even if you attempt 10 to 15 questions in an hour but with good accuracy, that is more than enough. Speed is something that will build up gradually as you will come across the similar type of questions so you will get used to club 2-3 steps in a single step to save time.

So my advice to all GATE aspirants will be not to get over-stressed if you are attempting less number of questions in a given time at present as you will gain speed eventually but accuracy is not something that you can attain eventually so focus more on accuracy as that will also boost your self-confidence.


Happy Preparations!

How Education Can Lift People from Poverty ?

“Education is not a way to escape poverty; it is a way of Fighting it”. The power of education is irrefutable across the world, both socially and personally, in both developing and developed countries. In fact, Education can be denoted as the only pathway to human development. It is believed that ensuring quality education for all is not only essential to accomplish the set developmental Goals but is equally indispensable to end the extreme poverty.

Education can certainly be the catalyst required to liberate the families and communities from the shackles of poverty. Knowledge bestows children with the power to dream of a better future and the confidence required to pursue adequate education, which in turn will help generations to come. This is not yet, a well-educated person can make significant changes in his/her life, particularly when it applies to day-to-day life activities – such as nutrition, healthcare and gender equality. If our roots are strengthened, it is likely that the fruits will be healthier and nutritious.

Education plays a vital role when it comes to reducing and preventing global poverty. It’s time for us to realize the importance of education and begin investing in it significantly. Providing education to every citizen of the country is the only way to ensure that poverty declines. Let’s have a look at some of the most significant ways education helps control poverty:

Increases Income:
If we go by the Research, an extra year of schooling can boost the income by at least 10%. In fact, just two more years at secondary schooling could help lift a lot of people out of poverty. If a person gets educated, he not only gains more knowledge but also imbibes good skills which all together leads to an increased productivity. Educated people will look out for better ways to diversify their sources of income. One should not forget that people with even a little education are more flexible to changes like economic, personal etc.
Empowers Women and Girls:
It’s well-said that ‘If you educate a man, you educate an individual. But if you educate a woman, you educate a family & a Nation. One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can Change the World”.

Education does play a vital role in empowering girls and women. Mothers who can take better decisions for their families can extremely impact that push out of poverty. Education is the key for women to achieve economic independence. They gain the power that enables them to take decisions of their lives. For instance, they can choose to have fewer children and ensure better facilities for them such as vaccines, medical care, better nutrition and above all Education.

Therefore, to breakdown the shackles of poverty and inequality being followed from generations, it is important that the women of the house are educated.

Enables a Healthy Lifestyle:
Education enhances people’s knowledge of how to live a healthy lifestyle. Educated people have better awareness about what kinds of food are nutritious and what precautions they need to take to avoid health-related problems. A healthy lifestyle is all about how educated you are about your surroundings and day-to-day activities. For instance, educated mothers are the first doctors of their families – they know how to keep their families safe and protected from any unhealthy and adulterated meal.
It all sums up to one thing ‘Education can help us eradicate poverty and liberate people from its bounds’. It’s time to realize the True Significance of Education and use it as a Weapon to fight poverty & walk the path of a better, healthier and prosperous life.
