ECE is the most competitive and popular branch of GATE. By analyzing we can easily make out that Analog Electronics, Networks, Control System and Communication, EDC and Electromagnetic Theory are the most important topics from where maximum questions comes every year. General aptitude section comprises nearly of easy English questions and few logical reasoning questions. So focusing on these subjects will help students to score better in the exam.

By analyzing the trends of the previous year we predict that 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. Aspirants should practice large no of problems based on these topics. Practicing previous year papers will give a hands-on over these topics.
