GATE 2017 SYLLABUS
NATIONAL LEVEL ONLINE TEST
GATE Syllabus is defined by the conducting body. For the academic session 2017-18, IIT Roorkee (Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee) will set the syllabus of GATE. Before delving into preparation, one should know about the syllabus and questions that are frequently asked in the exam. It will help a candidate to allocate their time and channel the efforts towards those topics that are deemed important by GATE exam setters. Being familiar with that can help tremendously in the preparation. GATE exam is designed to measure a candidate’s problem-solving ability, concept comprehension, time management skills and aptitude. The syllabus is published on the official portal of GATE 2017. Candidates can check GATE Sample Papers to get an idea of marking scheme and the pattern of GATE Exam.
GATE Syllabus and pattern was revised in 2016. Till date, the pattern has not seen any changes. GATE 2017 will be conducted in online mode. GATE exam pattern includes 2 types of questions- Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) & Numerical Answer Type (NAT). There will be a total of 65 questions carrying of total 100 marks in GATE 2017 exam that has to be completed in 3 hours. There is no negative marking for NAT but it is applicable for MCQs. For 1 mark MCQs, 1/3 marks will be deducted as penalty for every wrong marked answer. Likewise, for 2 marks MCQs, 2/3 marks will be deducted. Know more aboutGATE Exam Pattern
Note:In most of the paper codes, nearly 70 % of the weightage is allocated to the particular subject of the paper. Therefore, candidates have to carefully go through GATE 2017 syllabus for their respective paper codes to identify important topics based on their weightage in the exam.
All the questions in GATE are designed to test the following qualities in candidate:
GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) is jointly regulated by the IITs and IISc on a rotational basis. For this year, IIT Roorkee will hold the exam. It is conducted on annual basis for candidates seeking admission into M.Tech. and PH.D. courses in any of the engineering colleges/ institutes. One may get direct admission to Ph.D program through GATE Score.
General Aptitude (GA) is a common section in all GATE Papers. General Aptitude holds 15% weightage. The questions in GA are based on verbal ability and numerical ability. So without much ado, have a look at GATE syllabus for General Aptitude. The 2 sub sections in GA section are as follows:
Verbal Ability- The following topics are tested in this section:
Q1. An amount of money is to be divided between P, Q and R in the ratio of 3:7:12. If the difference between the shares of P and Q is INR X, and the difference between Q and R’s share is INR 3000. Find the total amount of money?
Q2. Choose the word which is the exact OPPOSITE of “Enormous”.
