  1. I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

  2. Hello Sir,
    As per recent changes in CSIR NET Exam pattern, Engineering sciences has been discontinued from CSIR NET so Electrical engineering candidates have to appear in GATE exam.

    1. please any other ways to do Ph.D FOR ELECTRICAL Engineering without passing GATE EXAM.
