GATE 2019 Exam Analysis for Mechanical Engineering (Morning Slot)

The overall difficulty level of GATE Mechanical paper was ‘Easy to Moderate’ in the morning slot. Like the previous year, the NAT (Numerical Answer Type) section had a good number of questions. There were about 26 questions (10 questions with a weightage of 1 mark each and 16 questions with a weightage of 2 marks each). The questions were a bit time-consuming and tested candidates' understanding of concepts. Manufacturing and Thermodynamics were the subjects which had a high weightage and were application-based questions. Fluid Mechanics, on the other hand, was comparatively easier with less weightage than expected. The general aptitude section was easy but the technical section was a bit tough and it had a few tricky questions. The math section had 8 questions and there were 47 questions from the mechanical engineering branch.

On the basis of the morning section, the expected cut-off is in the range of 31-33. Given below is the GATE 2019 Mechanical Engineering Slot 1 with subject-wise marks and the total number of questions

GATE 2019 Mechanical Engineering Session II (Afternoon slot) Analysis

The afternoon session had a ‘moderate to tough’ level. It had 32 numerical answer type (NAT) questions, 6 extra questions than the morning session. Since the NAT section is time-consuming, it made the paper lengthy. Due to this, time management became an issue for a lot of candidates.

The general aptitude test section had a moderate difficulty level and included 10 questions. The technical section had 8 mathematics questions and the remaining questions were specifically pertaining to the branch.

The manufacturing subject was given the maximum weightage and it had about 11 questions in the exam. The overall cut-off is likely to be in the range of 30-33 due to the difficulty level.

GATE 2019 Computer Science Exam Analysis

The computer science section had the difficulty level of ‘easy to moderate’. The paper pattern was similar to the previous year. NAT had 24 questions with 11 questions of 1 mark and 13 questions of 2 marks. The technical section was between ‘easy to moderate’ while the general aptitude section was easy.  

Database questions were tough. Data Structures, Discrete Mathematics subjects, and Programming had the maximum weightage. Also, there were 9 questions from Programming and Data Structures which was time-consuming for many students. The math section which had discrete math and engineering carried 18 marks, and it was a scoring section.

On the basis of the exam, the cut-off will be in the range of 24-27. The table below has the GATE 2019 Computer Science Engineering breakdown

The overall difficulty level of the paper was moderate. The GATE 2018 Civil Engineering question paper comprised of both numerical and multiple-choice questions. Most of the questions in the paper were conceptual rather than calculation-based. The paper was divided into three sections - Technical, Engineering Mathematics and General Aptitude. Students had to attempt 65 questions in three hours and the maximum marks for students to score were 100. The questions with one mark were easy but the two-mark questions were quite time-consuming. According to the test-takers, qualifying the exam was easy, but scoring was tough. Check out the section-wise analysis of GATE 2018 CE Paper!

GATE Mechanical Engineering (ME) Paper Analysis 2018 - 3rd Feb

Question Paper Pattern

In Mechanical Engineering, mostly Numerical Answer Type (NAT) questions were asked and the proportion was higher in comparison to last year. This factor made the exam a bit difficult. It is easier to attempt direct Theoretical questions and Multiple-Choice-Questions (MCQs), which were lesser in number.

Exam Interface

There was no difference in the exam interface of this year and last year's exam. Since the virtual calculator was already available on the official website of GATE 2018, those who had practised well had an advantage.
