GATE 2017 Civil Engineering Paper

GATE 2017 for CE paper comprised three sections i.e. Technical Section, Engineering Mathematics and General Aptitude. It consisted of 65 questions carrying maximum 100 marks. Candidates had to solve the paper in three hours. One mark questions were quite easy to attempt but questions with two marks were a bit time consuming. The number of conceptual questions was more than calculation-based questions. Candidates must be aware that qualifying is easy in this exam but scoring is tough. Check out the section-wise distribution of marks in the table below:

GATE 2017 CE Section wise Analysis

Engineering Mathematics

This section was of moderate difficulty level and carries 15% of the total weightage. It comprised calculus, linear algebra, complex variables, differential equations, limits and continuity and numerical method questions.

General Aptitude

General aptitude is the common section in all papers of GATE 2017. The questions from this section were easy to attempt and less time consuming. It consisted of time and work, mixtures, directions, mensuration, clock and Venn diagram topics.

Technical section

This section carries 70% of the weightage. Candidates can score above 50 marks if they attended properly. The difficulty of this section was more than last year. Candidates were confounded with the questions of Structural Analysis, Engineering Mechanics & Construction Material. Check the following table to know the topics covered in the paper:

SubjectTopics asked in the paperLevel
Environmental EngineeringBOD, Air Pollution; Sludge Disposal ; Domestic wastewaterModerate
Structural AnalysisDeflection of beam; truess & StrainDifficult
Water Resources EngineeringUnit hydrographs; flood estimation; fluid routingEasy
