The (GATE) Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering is an All-India Examination conducted by the Seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, on behalf of the (MHRD) Ministry of Human Resources Development, Government of India. The objectives of GATE are to identify meritorious and motivated candidates for admission to Postgraduate Programs Engineering at the National level. Every year one Indian Institutes of Technology or Indian Institute of Science is selected as the Organizing Institute.
Exam Pattern: Total 65 Questions (ALL Objective Type) Total Marks : 100 Each question has ONLY one correct answer. Answer sheet: OMR (ONLY Black Ink Ball Point Pen is allowed to darken the appropriate bubble)
GATE 2014 Examination will be ONLINE for Civil Engineering & Chemical Engineering. GATE 2014 Examination will be OFFLINE for Computer Science & IT, Electrical Engineering, Ece, and Mech Engineering, Instrumentation Engineering.
Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering 2014-15 would contain questions of four different types in engineering papers: Multiple choice questions carrying 1 or 2 marks each. where the answer to the first question of the pair is required in order to answer its successor. Sectional cut-off ( Technical / Non-Technical like Engineering mathematics & General Aptitude ) are not applied in GATE exam. all the papers have 65 questions carrying 100 marks, out of which is ten questions carrying 15 marks in General Aptitude (GA) are compulsory. General Aptitude (GA-15 Marks) is common for all the engineering branch Civil(CE), Computer Science(CS), (IT, CE, Mech, EE, ECE) Question of General Aptitude will remain same for branches held in same seating.
Engineering Mathematics will carry 15 % of the total marks, the GA section will carry 15 % of the total marks and the remaining 70 % of the total marks is technical in nature. Engineering Mathematics Syllabus for Electronics & Communication Engineering, Electrical Engineering & Instrumentation Engineering is same and same question would be asked in the examination of gate 2014. Engineering Mathematics Syllabus for Chemical Engineering, Mech Engineering and Civil Engineering is same and same question would be asked in the examination of gate 2014. A Few topics of mathematics are common for CS & IT,Electrical,Ece,Civil,Instrumentation,mech engineering and chemical.
Scheme of Marking:
Negative marking of 1/3rd for One marks question and (-ve) of 2/3rd for Two marks question. Un attempted question: No Marks Linked answer question pair. Every question carries two marks, 2/3 mark will be deducted for a wrong answer to the first question only. There is no (-ve) marking for wrong answer to the second question of the linked answer question pair. If the 1st question in the linked pair is wrongly ans or is un attempted, then the ans to the 2nd question in the pair will not be evaluated. There is no (-ve) marking for numerical answer type questions.
Question 1 to 25 : One mark each ( Negative marking 1/3rd ) Question 26 to 55 : Two mark each ( Negative marking 2/3rd )
Question 56 to 65 : General Aptitude ( total 15 marks ) : ( Negative marking 1/3rd for One marks & 2/3rd for Two mark )
Question 56 to 60 : 1 mark each
Question 61 to 65 : 2 mark each
