GATE 2017 Analysis for CE by The GATE Academy – The GATE 2017 Session 1 for Civil Engineering (CE) has been concluded on February 12, 2017. The candidates can check the review of the exam by the GATE Academy on this page. Since the number of the students were many, the GATE 2017 is to be held in two sessions – the first session was from 09:00 am to 12:00 noon and the second session from 02:00 pm to 05:00 pm. The GATE 2017 Analysis by The GATE Academy for CE will provide an idea to the candidates about the difficulty level of the paper, the structure of the exam, weightage of marks for the particular topic. Most of the questions were based on the basic concepts. The candidates who have appeared for the first session can check the GATE 2017 Analysis for CE by The GATE Academy below.
The exam was based on the memory of the students. The Analysis of the GATE 2017 for CE was moderate. The weightage of topics like Fluid Mechanics, Environmental Engineering and Geotechnical Engineering were comparatively high. The General Aptitude was moderate in contrast to the previous year.
