These are based on facts, principles, formulae or laws. The candidate is expected to be able to obtain the answer either from his memory of the subject or at most from a one-line computation.

Comprehension Questions:

These questions test the candidate’s understanding of the basics of the field, by requiring him to draw simple conclusions from fundamental ideas.

Application Questions:

In these questions, the candidate is expected to apply his knowledge either through computation or by logical reasoning.

Analysis and Synthesis Questions:

These can be linked answer questions, where the answer to the first question of the pair is required in order to answer its successor. Or these can be common data questions, in which two questions share the same data but can be solved independently of each other.

GATE General Aptitude + Engineering Mathematics Questions:

Exam/Test/Paper contains 20(out of 65) questions that test the “General Aptitude + Engineering Mathematics” (language and analytic skills, Linear Algebra, Calculus, Vector Calculus, Complex Variables, Ordinary Differential Equations, Probability and Statistics, Numerical Methods)and carry a total of 30 marks (out of 100), apart from the core subject of Engineering Science (XE).

GATE Engineering Science (XE) Questions:

Exam/Test/Paper contains 45 (out of 65) questions that test the “Tech” (any 2 sections out of 6 –> Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics, Solid Mechanics, Material Science, Polymer Science, Atmosphere and Ocean Science, and Food Technology)and carry a total of 70 marks (out of 100).

Duration and examination type:

The examination is of 3 hours duration, and contains a total of 65 questions worth a maximum of 100 marks. From 2014 onward, the examination for all the papers is carried out in an online Computer Based Test (CBT) mode where the candidates are shown the questions in a random sequence on a computer screen. The questions consist of both multiple choice questions (four answer options out of which the correct one has to be chosen) and numerical answer type questions (answer is a real number, to be entered via an on-screen keypad and computer mouse). Candidates are provided with scribble pads for rough work and these have to be returned after the examination. At the end of the 3-hour window, the computer automatically closes the screen from further actions.
