Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) and other will be Numerical Answer Type (NAT) Based. Candidates must use the virtual keyboard for entering the answer for numerical type questions.
The duration of the exam is 3 hours and there will be total 65 questions consist of total 100 marks. Negative marking is also applicable in GATE 2017 exam. GATE exam will be conducted in two shifts (forenoon and afternoon) on weekend (Saturday and Sunday).
The date for GATE 2017 exam is from February 04, 05,11 and 12, 2017 at various GATE 2017 exam centers. GATE 2017 will be conducted in two sessions i.e. from 09:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 02:00 p.m. to 05:00 p.m. The session timings will vary according to the local time of the place for the international candidates.
Candidates from different streams have to appear for GATE 2017 in single or multiple sessions depending upon the GATE Exam pattern. The streams with multiple sessions will have both the sessions on the same day with a set time gap between both the sessions. Both the sessions will be in online mode.
GATE 2017 Exam date varies depending on the stream applied. The paper codes with their exam date and time duration of each session is tabulated below:

The GATE 2017 examination duration will be 3 hours and it consists of single paper. Mode of the GATE 2017 exam will be conducted in online mode (Computer Based Test). There will be 65 questions of 100 marks. GATE 2017 question paper will have both types of questions – Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) and Numerical Answer type (NAT).
As we know that GATE 2017 will be an online exam so that, the candidates will be shown the questions in a random sequence on a computer screen. For answering the questions, candidates must enter the answer (for MCQs type) or enter the answer for numerical type questions on a virtual keyboard. Candidates cannot use the computer keyboard because it will be disabled.
Candidates will also get a Scribble pad for rough work and these have to be returned after the examination. At the end of the examination duration (3 hours), the computer screen will be automatically closed.
As you know very well about the GATE 2017 exam pattern (as we have mentioned above in this article), it has two types of questions First is MCQs type and second is Numerical Type and the marking scheme for each category type of questions will be different. The details procedure is given below:

There are two different types of questions would be asked in the GATE 2017 i.e. Objective Type/Multiple Choice Based (MCQs) based and Numerical Answer Type (NAT) questions in various papers.
(i) Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ): This type of questions are objective in nature and each question will have four options out of which the candidate has to mark the correct answer(s). These types of questions carry 1 or 2 marks each in all papers and sections.
(ii) Numerical Answer Type (NAT): Answer of this type of these types of questions will be a real number and answer to be entered by using the virtual keyboard. These types of questions carry 1 or 2 marks each in all papers and sections.
Apart from questions in the core subjects (as given in the above table) of the paper, the paper will also contain the questions to test the ability of your General Ability like- Language and Analytical Skills. There are 15% questions will be devoted to General Aptitude section in all the papers, so the 15% questions of GA carry a total of 15 marks. The distribution of the questions and marks is described below:
15% of the total marks are allotted to the General Aptitude and rest 85% will carry questions from the core subject for papers in the disciplines of Architecture and Planning, Chemistry, Ecology and Evolution, Geology and Geophysics, Mathematics, Physics and Life Sciences.
15% of the examination will be devoted to the GA section and another 15% to be allotted to the Engineering Mathematics sections for all the other subject streams. And remaining 70% Questions will carry from the core subject of paper.
The question paper will consist of multiple choice type and numerical answer type questions. There will be four options for MCQs type questions; candidates must select any one for choosing the answer. For giving the answer of numerical answer questions, choices will not be given, you have to enter the answer by using the virtual keyboard and the answer may be a real number, signed or unsigned, e.g., 25.06, -25.06, 25, -25 etc. An appropriate range will be considered while evaluating the numerical answer type questions so that the candidate is not penalized due to the usual round-off errors. The distribution of the questions and marks is described below:
Apart from the General Aptitude (GA) section, the Geology and Geophysics (GG) question paper consists of two parts: Part A and Part B. Part A is common for all candidates. Part B consists of two sections: Section 1 (Geology) and Section 2 (Geo-physics). Candidates will have to attempt questions in Part A and in Part B attempt either Section 1 or Section 2. The distribution of the questions and marks is described below:
There are the following sections which have to be answered by the candidates in the GATE 2017 XE paper as given in the below:
Candidates can select two sections from B to G during the examination after viewing the questions. Only two optional sections can be answered at a time. Candidates can also change the subject in the midway of examination to another optional section, but for this, first of all deselect one of the previously selected optional subject from B to G.
This section contains total 33 questions of total 50 marks. In GATE 2017 XE paper, the Section - A (Engineering Mathematics) is compulsory. This section contains 11 questions of total 15 marks. Some questions may be of numerical answer type questions. The distribution of the questions and marks is described below:
Each of the other sections of the XE paper from section B to G contains 22 questions carrying a total of 35 marks. Some questions may be of numerical answer type questions. The distribution of the questions and marks is described below:

This section contains total 35 questions of total 55 marks. In GATE 2017 XL paper, the Section - H Chemistry (compulsory). This section contains 15 questions of total 25 marks. Some questions may be of numerical answer type questions. The distribution of the questions and marks is described below:
Each of the other sections of the XL paper from section I to M contains 20 questions carrying a total of 30 marks. Some questions may be of numerical answer type questions. The distribution of the questions and marks is described below:
