Exam Pattern of Civil Engineering for GATE Exam
Gate 2016 exam will be a Computer Based Test (CBT)
Please note: Question Paper Structure, Marks distribution is common for CS, EE, ECE, ME, CSE, CH papers
There will be total 65 Questions and the total marks of GATE Exam 2016 are 100.
The total duration of GATE Exam 2016 is 3 hours.
Here is the division of the Marks:
General Aptitude (GA): 10 questions of 15 Marks
Engineering Mathematics: 15 Marks
Technical Questions (subject of the paper): 70 Marks
GATE 2016 Exam will contain two different types of questions:
1. Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ): Objective questions carrying 1 or 2 marks, where each question will have a choice of four answers, out of which the candidate has to mark the correct answer(s), in all papers and sections.
2. Numerical Answer Questions: Each question of 1 or 2 marks in all papers and sections. For these questions the answer is a real number, to be entered by the candidate using the virtual keypad. No choices will be shown for this type of questions.
The questions in a paper may be designed to test the following abilities:
Recall: Questions will be based on facts, principles, formulae or laws of the discipline of the paper. Candidates are expected to be able to obtain the answer either from his/her memory of the subject or at most from a one-line computation.
Comprehension: These questions will test the candidate's understanding of the basics of his/her field, by requiring him/her to draw simple conclusions from fundamental ideas.
Application: The candidate is expected to apply his/her knowledge either through computation or by logical reasoning.
Analysis and synthesis: In these questions, the candidate is presented with data, diagrams, images etc. that require analysis before a question can be answered. A synthesis question might require the candidate to compare two or more pieces of information.
