    I would like to answer some questions:

    1) Test series are there to help you. There are many institutes for that like gateforum, made easy, ACE academy. Join any of the test series and you can monitor your progress.

    2) As far as i know upto rank 200 is good, but if you want to hit big like IITB or IITD you need to go under 100.

    3) This depends on the level of question papers, if its easy then you need to crack it real hard.

    4) I will pass this as i havent reached at that stage....😉

    5) You got to be careful about negative marking. Normally they have 1/3 mark as negative. My advice: attempt the questions which you are sure. Try not to guess the answers.

    P.S: Correct me if i am wrong....😀
