GATE Exam Pattern
GATE is the next step for engineering students and will allow the students to study further in their chosen fields once they complete their graduation.
The number of applicants for the GATE exam is high, and only a few students qualify considering the difficulty of the exam. However, regular studies and understanding the concepts rather than mugging them is a good strategy to ace the exam.
Here's what the GATE exam pattern is about and the areas you should focus on depending on your strengths and weaknesses:
- The GATE exam is held on weekends.
- The exam is for three hours.
- The paper constitutes 65 multiple choice questions for 100 marks.
- The compulsory section of the question paper will have the following:
- 10 General Aptitude question for 15 marks.
- Compulsory engineering mathematics questions which will be for 15 marks as well.
- Other than this, the exam awards 2 marks for each correct answer and deducts 2/3 of the same for a wrong answer.
- The exam also has Numerical Answer Type which is abbreviated as NAT. There is no negative marking scheme for the NAT answers.
- In case you do not mark an answer, you will be awarded zero marks.
- The MCQS are objective type questions and come with four options to choose from.
- For NAT questions, the answers are not displayed on the screen. The student has to input the answer they have calculated with the help of the keyboard and the mouse.
It must be remembered that GATE exam is a computer-based. The questions are randomly shown up on the screen, and the student will have to select the answers based on the question.
