Session 2 ME Analysis by GATE Forum is as below:
- 2 marks questions in technical were easy but 1 marks questions were confusing.
- General Aptitude was easy but lengthy.
- The overall paper was tricky but the levle of difficulty was moderate in comparision to last year.
- Most of the questions were formula bases. Unlike Session 1 paper.
|Topics||1 Mark Questions||2 Marks Questions||Total Questions|
|Strength of Materials||3||2||5|
|Design of Machine Elements||1||3||4|
|Theory of Machines||0||2||2|
Analysis of ME paper (Session I) from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
The overall difficulty level in the ME paper for the Forenoon session was higher than the last year. The ME paper contained concept based questions than formula based questions. Unlike last year, there was less weightage in the Engineering Mechanics session whereas the number of questions has increased in Strength of Materials, Thermal Science and Manufacturing. But other topics were as same as last year.
