NATIONAL LEVEL ONLINE TEST
GATE 2017 CSE Paper for session 5 has been successfully conducted on February 11, 2017. GATE 2017 CSE paper was divided in three sections i.e. Engineering mathematics, General aptitude and Technical subjects. It consisted of 65 questions carrying a maximum of 100 marks. Candidates had to solve the paper in three hours. The difficulty level of the paper was moderate. The paper has questions broadly divided into numerical answer type and multiple choice questions (MCQs).
GATE 2017 paper showed that most of the questions were similar to the questions asked in last year’s GATE Exam. IIT Roorkee has followed the almost the same weightage compared to last year. Here, we are providing session 5 analysis with the weightage of each section with respective marks & number of questions in this article. Check the details of the topics and paper analysis introduced by various institutes.
The overall difficulty level of the paper was moderate. The general aptitude section was easier than last year. The questions were conceptual and direct. Theory of computation, computer organization and data structure contained more weightage in the technical section. Here, we are providing details for distribution of questions from various topics asked in GATE 2017 in the table below:
|Subject||Topics||No. of questions||Level||Weightage (%)|
|Engineering Mathematics||Probability, calculus||7||Moderate||12%|
|General Aptitude||Verbal ability, Numerical ability, Passage, Grammar||8||Moderate||15%|
|Programming & Data Structure||Pointer, structure, recursion, functions||7||Difficult||10%|
|Operating System||Thread, Scheduling, Critical Section, Page Replacement||4||Easy||6%|
|Theory of Computation||Regular Grammar, Turing machine, DFA||6||Easy||12%|
|Computer Organization & Architecture||Cache Memory, Memory mapping, Pipe Line, Addressing mode||9||Moderate||14%|
|Digital Circuits||Flip flop, logic gate, K-map||3||Easy||4%|
|Discrete Mathematics||Tree, Spanning tree||4||Easy||5%|
|DBMS||Functional dependency, SQL, Topple calculus, Relation algebra||5||Moderate||8%|
|Computer Networks||Stop & Wait protocol, CRC check, TCP, protocol||5||Easy||8%|
|Compiler Design||First follow||1||Easy||2%|
|Design & Analysis Algorithm||Asymptotic notation, Complex city, Greedy technique, Quick sort||3||Moderate||4%|
There was mixture of algorithms and objective type questions in the exam. The weightage of Discrete Mathematics has come down while it is increased in Engineering Mathematics as compared to last year. In general, the overall difficulty level of the paper was easy than last year.
