GATE-2019 Introduction

Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an examination conducted jointly by the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore and the seven Indian Institutes of Technology (at Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras and Roorkee) on behalf of the National Coordination Board (NCB)-GATE, Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) and Government of India.

Qualifying in GATE is a mandatory requirement for seeking admission and/or financial assistance to: (i) Master’s programs and direct Doctoral programs in Engineering/Technology/Architecture and (ii) Doctoral programs in relevant branches of Science, in the institutions supported by the MHRD and other Government agencies. Even in some colleges and institutions, which admit students without MHRD scholarship/assistantship, the GATE qualification is mandatory. Further, many Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) have been using the GATE score in their recruitment process.

The information in this brochure is mainly categorized intoPre-Examination(Eligibility, Application Submission, Examination Centers, etc.),Examination(Pattern, Marks/Score, etc.) andPost-Examination(Answers, Contests, Results, Scorecard, etc.) sections.

Pattern of Questions

GATE 2019 would contain questions of two different types in all the papers:

(i)Multiple Choice Questions(MCQ) carrying1or2marks each in all the papers and sections. These questions are objective in nature, and each will have a choice of four answers, out of which the candidate has to select (mark) the correct answer.

Negative Marking for Wrong Answers:For a wrong answer chosen in a MCQ, there will be negative marking. For1-markMCQ,1/3mark will be deducted for a wrong answer. Likewise, for2-markMCQ,2/3mark will be deducted for a wrong answer.

(ii)Numerical Answer Type(NAT) Questions carrying1or2marks each in all the papers and sections. For these questions, the answer is a signed real number, which needs to be entered by the candidate using the virtual numeric keypad on the monitor (keyboard of the computer will be disabled). No choices will be shown for these type of questions. The answer can be a number such as10or-10(an integer only). The answer may be in decimals as well, for example,10.1(one decimal) or10.01(two decimals) or-10.001(three decimals). These questions will be mentioned with, up to which decimal places, the candidates need to make an answer. Also, an appropriate range will be considered while evaluating the numerical answer type questions so that the candidate is not penalized due to the usual round-off errors. Wherever required and possible, it is better to give NAT answer up to a maximum of three decimal places.

Marks

In all the papers, there will be a total of65questions carrying100marks, out of which10questions carrying a total of15marks will be on General Aptitude (GA), which is intended to test the Language and Analytical Skills.

In the papers bearing the codes AE, AG, BT, CE, CH, CS, EC, EE, IN, ME, MN, MT, PE, PI, TF and XE, the Engineering Mathematics will carry around15%of the total marks, the General Aptitude section will carry15%of the total marks and the remaining70%of the total marks is devoted to the subject of the paper.
