GATE 2019 Mock Tests has been released by IIT Madras on its official website on 30th October 2018. IIT Madras will organise the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering, known as GATE, in the month of February next year, for candidates aspiring to get admission in Master's programmes in engineering as well as for those interested in recruitment by PSUs. Therefore, candidates who are preparing for GATE 2019 must take mock test for the best preparation and to become familiar with the GATE exam pattern. The GATE 2019 mock test will be a simulation of the actual test, which means that all the functionalities will be similar to the actual test including marking scheme, distribution of questions, and nature of questions, etc.
Mock tests help candidates by giving them the opportunity to revise the syllabus well before the actual examination. The questions asked in the mock test papers also give candidates an insight into the possible difficulty level of the exam. Basically, mock tests help candidates analyse their level of preparation. They also help candidates identify the areas where they're weak and need to work on.
The mock test links are active for all the subjects i.e. Aerospace Engineering, Agricultural Engineering, Architecture and Planning, Biotechnology, Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Computer Science and Information Technology, Chemistry, Electronics and Communication Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Ecology and Evolution, Geology and Geophysics, Instrumentation Engineering, Mathematics, Mechanical Engineering, Mining Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, Physics, Production and Industrial Engineering, Textile Engineering and Fibre Science, Engineering Sciences and Life Sciences.
The series of GATE Mock Test will be available soon
The steps to access the GATE mock test are mentioned below:
Click on the link given above.
You will be redirected to the login page.
Register or login with the credentials asked such as Name, Email ID, Date of Birth and Password.
After successful login, you will be redirected to the mock test page.
Click on ‘Start the test' tab and proceed further.
After successfully completing the test, click on the 'Submit' tab.
Once you submit the exam, your score will be displayed on the screen.
Mock tests will help the applicants revise the entire syllabus and clear their basic concepts.
By practicing mock tests, candidates will be able to finish their actual paper in time.
Another advantage of practicing the GATE mock test is that candidates will be able to identify their weaknesses and strengths.
Taking mock tests also reduces the fear of examination.
Also, taking mock tests can help improve candidates' understanding of the nature of questions, and they also get an idea of how much time does it take to solve each section.
GATE 2019 will be conducted for 24 subjects (papers) with 3 sections namely:
the specific subject of the paper
The question paper will include 2 types of questions – MCQs (Multiple Choice Questions) & NAT (Numerical Answer Type)
In all the papers, there will be a total of 65 questions carrying 100 marks, out of which 10 questions carrying a total of 15 marks will be on General Aptitude (GA).
In the papers having the codes AE, AG, BT, CE, CH, CS, EC, EE, IN, ME, MN, MT, PE, PI, TF and XE, the Engineering Mathematics is mandatory and will carry 15% of the total marks.
The questions based on the specific subject of the exam have 70% of the total weightage (70 marks).
The remaining part of GATE Question Paper includes General Aptitude questions carrying 15% of the total marks.
In the papers having the codes AR, CY, EY, GG, MA, PH and XL, the General Aptitude section carries 15% of the total marks.
The remaining 85% of the total marks will be based on the subject of the paper.
There is no negative marking for a wrong answer in NAT questions.
The GATE 2019 will be of 180 minutes duration.
GATE is a national-level engineering entrance test for admission into M.Tech/ Ph.D. programmes offered at IITs, NITs, and IISc Bangalore, etc. The exam is conducted annually by IISc and 7 IITs (Bombay, Delhi, Madras, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Guwahati and Roorkee) on a rotational basis.
