**GATE 2017 Paper Analysis for CS by the GATE Academy** – The CS paper of GATE 2017 was held on February 11, 2017. It was conducted in two sessions, from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm and 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. The analysis for both the sessions has been provided by The GATE Academy. The analysis has been prepared on the basis of student’s memory. However, it is vivid enough to check the topics with most and least weightage, distribution of questions, and level of difficulty in the exam. Candidates can check the GATE 2017 Paper Analysis for CS by the GATE Academy, for morning and afternoon session, from the tables below.
