GateBiotech Section/Unit test series covers whole GATE biotechnology 2024 syllabus topic-wise. Each topic has minimum 10 questions, 1 mark each and 30 min to complete it. Vast topics and important topics have more questions. Our focus is more on NAT (numerical answer type), as there is no negative marking and it needs more practice and precision.

15 Revision Tests: Each test consists of 30 questions from all units, you already prepared before, in section/unit test. These tests are for revision, and to improve your memory and concepts.

5 Mock tests: GateBiotech Mock test series follows the GATE 2024 question paper pattern. Each GateBiotech Mock test has 65 questions, 1-2 marks each, total 100 marks and 3 hours to complete it. Engineering mathematics carries 13 marks, general aptitude (language and analytical skills) carries 15 marks and rest 72 marks are dedicated to subject biotechnology.

GateBiotech Short Notes:  Short notes are on the basis of most frequently asked questions in competitive exams and important topics which must be studied. We are continuously adding new short notes, e-books and other study materials. Notes and matter are provided as a support of the complete syllabus.

Solutions of NAT and GA questions: Detailed solutions of numerical and aptitude questions. For more information, please check section 5 of AGBT.

After qualifying GATE: We will assist you to choose institutes, departments, courses and subjects. We will also help you to prepare for your written &/or interviews including your projects and dissertations discussion.

Fee: Total fee for GateBiotech Complete Test Series is ₹ 17000.00 Incl. GST. You can pay fee in two installments.

*Note: Complete Support* will be provided for GateBiotech Complete test series questions only. We will also provide short notes of most discussed questions/topics.

Total fee for GateBiotech Complete Test Series is ₹ 17000/-

There are two payment options:

1. You Can Choose One time payment Option, that is ₹ 17000.00 Incl. GST


2. You Can Pay It In Two Installments, that is ₹ 8500.00 Incl. GST
