Reasoning is considered to be high scoring and easy section. A person with good logical reasoning skills can score 40-45 marks easily in 30-35 minutes. Analogy, Classification, Series, Figure problems, Arithmetical Operations are most important topics that should be kept on high focus to score good marks.
There is a perfect combination of Thermodynamics and Application, Theory of Machine, Engineering Mathematics, Strength of Materials, Thermal Science and Verbal Ability etc. Question paper has more conceptual questions than calculation based questions. 1-mark questions are easier and 2-marks questions are a bit difficult.
Engineering & Discrete Mathematics, Data Structures & Algorithms, Computer Organization and Theory of Computation are most important topics and sub-topics. Candidates appearing for GATE CS 2017 must lay a lot of emphasis on these subjects.
Engineering Mathematics, Electrical Machines, Power Systems, Control Systems and Electric Circuits subjects are having weightage more than 50 marks. So prioritizing these subjects may get you more marks.
Civil engineering examines ability of candidates on the basis of their knowledge in General aptitude, Engineering mathematics, Mechanics, Structure analysis, Concrete structure, Steel structure, Geotechnical Engineering, Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulics.
Control System and Communication, EDC, Analog Electronics, Networks and Electromagnetic Theory are most important topics and sub-topics. Candidates appearing for GATE ECE 2017 must lay a lot of emphasis on these subjects. These subjects carry high weightage.
