February 13

According to MN Ramesh, Academic Lead -GATE, BYJU Exam Preparation, the paper was moderately difficult. “In the first shift of the log, there were 25 MCQ questions, 5 MSQ and 35 NAT questions. MSQ

were theoretical in nature. Manufacturing engineering and heat transfer were given the most weight during the first GATE team,” said the Academic Director.

The GATE 2022 Mechanical Engineering (ME) paper in both sessions, according to Umesh Dhande, Director of GATE Academy, had the most difficult level of questions. “If we compare the difficulty level of the ME paper with the question papers of the past six years, today’s paper had the most difficult questions,” the director added.

12 February

The civil engineering exam in both shifts was reviewed as According to GATE tutor Atul Garg, the overall difficulty level of the paper was “moderate to difficult”. Section wise, the expert analyzed the general aptitude questions as difficult, while the math questions were analyzed as moderate to difficult. “The maximum questions (35) were MCQs, NAT-23 questions, MSQ-7 questions,” he reviewed.

There were unexpected questions from Shear Design in the RCC topic, the expert informed, adding that geotechnical and environmental engineering has the highest point weight (11 points each).

GATE Academy Director Umesh Dhande reviewed the GATE CE document as “moderately difficult”. “In the paper written by IIT Kharagpur, the number of MSQ questions differed in some branches. The paper followed the standard of GATE exam,” he said.

Anurag Sharma, a GATE aspirant, said the civil engineering paper was a bit difficult, with math questions, general aptitude was difficult. “The paper turned out to be a bit difficult, with Maths and General Aptitude having difficult questions. There were fewer MSQ-type questions, while about 35 questions were MCQ-type,” he said. declared. Mr. Sharma appeared on the morning shift.

February 6

Candidates who appeared in the Sunday, February 6, newspaper Electronics and Communication Engineering rated it as easy. Mridul Mittal, a GATE aspirant, told Careers360 that the article on electronics and communication engineering was easy to attempt. “The document was balanced, with the questions proving to be a mix of easy and difficult, following the pattern of the GATE exam. There were a total of 14 questions of type MSQ, MCQ-33, NAT-18.”

According to a GATE tutor, Atul Garg, the whole Electronic Engineering and Communication paper was moderately difficult. By section, the expert rated the general aptitude questions as easy to moderate, network theory and numeracy as easy, while the math questions were rated as slightly difficult. “The maximum number of questions (33) were of the MCQ type, NAT-18 questions, MSQ-14 questions”, he analyzed.

February 5

Candidates who appeared on the Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mathematics paper on the first day of GATE 2022 on Saturday February 5 were rated as moderately difficult. Umesh Dhande, director of the GATE Academy, rated the difficulty level of the computer engineering article as “easy to moderate”. “In GATE 2022, there were more Multiple Selection Questions (MSQs) in the CSE exam compared to last year. In Paper 1, there were 32 Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs), 10 kinds of numeric responses (NAT) and 15 MSQ.”, the expert said. Weighting Analysis – Computer Network (11 points), Theory of Computation (10 points), Algorithms (9 points), Data Structures and Programming (9 points), Computer Organization (8 points), Databases (7 points), operating systems (6 points), compiler design (5 points), digital logic (5 points).

MN Ramesh, Academic Director -GATE, BYJU Exam Prep rated the computer engineering paper as easy, but the general aptitude questions were a bit difficult, while the quantitative aptitude section was moderately difficult . “Engineering math was worth 6 points, while discrete math was worth 9 points. MSQ portions were given more weight this year,” the expert analyzed.

For Electrical Engineering and Mathematics held in the afternoon, experts rated the paper as moderately difficult, with questions on difficult electromagnetic fields. Candidates can expect a threshold around 30-33.

Weighting Analysis – Electrical Machinery (12 points), Power Electronics (11 points), Signals and Systems (8 points), Power System (8 points), Control System (8 points), Electrical Circuits (7 points) , analog electronics (7 points), Electromagnetism (7 points).
