NATIONAL LEVEL ONLINE TEST

GATE 2017 ME paper was successfully conducted on February 4, 2017 in both sessions. GATE ME exam consisted of a single paper of 3 hours duration which comprised 65 questions carrying a maximum of 100 marks. The question paper consisted of both multiple-choice questions (MCQ) & numerical answer type questions.

The ME question paper was divided into 3 sections viz. General Aptitude, Engineering Mathematics and the Qualifying Degree Section i.e. Mechanical Engineering. All the questions carried 1 or 2 marks for all papers and individual sections. In GATE ME, Numerical Answer Type (NAT) questions, candidates were required to answered using the virtual keyboard as no answer choice was provided. GATE 2017 Result for Mechanical Engineering exam is expected to be declared on or before March 27, 2017. Candidates who qualify **GATE 2017 **can participate in the GATE counselling process.
