"Your personal calculators are not allowed in GATE 2018" - but a VIRTUAL ON-SCREEN scientific CALCULATOR will be there on your computer screen.
GATE organising office has released details of this calculator and it will look like this
The calculator can be opened by clicking this link. It has all the necessary functions like power (root, square, nth power, nth root etc.), trigonometric (direct & inverse), logarithmic etc.
Working on a physical calculator is very comfortable but it could be little wacky using this on-screen calculator since most of us are not habitual of using mouse to do calculations. No need to worry though - "PRACTICE" is the word. Start from today, save this calculator page as a bookmark and use it for daily calculations. sadly it is not possible to save it in offline mode, so you'd always need an internet connection to use this.
Calculator is very intuitive to use, once you start practicing you'd get the knack of it. More information regarding the usage of calculator is available from GATE website. Hide your physical calculators and start practising on virtual calculator.
Wish you good luck for GATE 2018. Happy Gateing!!
