GATE 2017 SYLLABUS

NATIONAL LEVEL ONLINE TEST

GATE is conducted for 23 different engineering disciplines. IIT Roorkee has published the GATE syllabus for all the 23 paper codes on the official portal of GATE 2017. GATE Exam mainly consists of 3 sections - General Aptitude, Engineering Mathematics and specific subject of the paper.

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 the GATE 2017 syllabus for their respective paper codes to identify important topics based on their weightage in the exam. All the questions will be either in Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ) format or Numerical Answer Questions.

All the questions in GATE are designed to test the following qualities in candidate:

**Recall:**These questions are based on facts, formulae, principles and law of the discipline of the GATE paper. Answers to these questions can be obtained either from memory of the subject or through one line computation.**Comprehension:**GATE will test a candidate's understanding of his core field. This will require him to draw simple conclusions from fundamental ideas.**Application:**Logical reasoning of a candidate can help candidate to get the answers.

GATE syllabus 2017 for all 23 papers is provided in the given below table.

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:

- English Grammar
- Sentence Completion
- Verbal Analogies
- Word Groups
- Instructions
- Critical Reasoning
- Verbal Deduction

**Numerical Ability**- This section comprises of questions which test the basic mathematical skills of candidates. The following sub topics included in this section are:

- Numerical computation
- Numerical Estimation
- Numerical Reasoning
- Data Interpretation

**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?**

- 11000
- 12400
- 13200
- 14300

**Q2. Choose the word which is the exact OPPOSITE of “Enormous”.**

- Soft
- Average
- Tiny
- Weak

Engineering Mathematics holds 15% weightage in GATE for the paper codes: **AE, AG, BT, CE, CH, CS, EC, EE, IN, ME, MN, MT, PE, PI, TF and XE. **This section tests candidate’s skills in mathematical methods and techniques which are majorly used in engineering. Following are the sub topics of engineering mathematics for various papers:

GATE exam 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. GATE exam pattern highlights are mentioned in the following table:

Mode | Online (Computer Based Test) |
---|---|

Medium | English |

Duration | 3 hours |

Sections | General Aptitude | Technical and Engineering Mathematics |

Total number of questions | 65 questions |

Total marks | 100 |
