Topic wise Questions Analysis for GATE CS
CS & IT is one of the top five popular branches of GATE. From the above subject wise weightage, we can see the Engineering & Discrete Mathematics and Data Structures & Algorithms have the highest weightage. The subjects like Algorithm, Computer Organization, C programming and Data Structure and Theory of Computation should not be ignored. General Aptitude and Engineering Mathematics cover 15% weightage each and rest 70% is covered by Core Computer Engineering Subjects. GATE requires students to be strong in fundamentals to do well and the same trend has been observed over the years.
By analyzing the trends of the previous year we predict 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. 15 to 20% of the paper is from data structures, automata and language computation, operating systems, mathematics and digital system design.These subjects carry high weightage. By preparing in a well planned manner and solving the previous papers, the students can get good score in GATE exam.
GATE is a national level exam to test the candidates’ comprehensive understanding in different undergraduate subjects in streams like engineering, technology and Architecture and is considered to be one of the toughest exams for engineering entrance institutes. From the trends shown here only 14-17% of the total candidates who appear for the exam can clear it and make upto the top institutes who are taking GATE score as one of the criteria to get admission in their institutes.
