Detailed Section Wise Analysis

Based on all the information by expert and candidates, We have prepared a section-wise analysis of TANCET 2017 question paper for M.E/ M.Tech/ M.Arch/ M.Plan.

Section 1 - Engineering Mathematics

Section one consisted of 30 questions, amounting to a total of 30 marks in the examination. Engineering Mathematics is a common section for all to attempt, and in this year, the noticeable weight age was on the following topics:

  • Matrices and Determinants
  • Vector Calculus
  • Transform
  1. Z- Transform
  2. Inverse Transform
  3. Laplace Transform
  • Numerical Methods
  1. Integration
  2. Differentiation

The difficulty level of the section one was easy to moderate. Numerical methods & vector calculus were comparatively difficult than the other major topics in the section 1.

Section 2 - Engineering Sciences

The Section two consists of 30 questions as well, totaling to 30 marks as well. Just like the Section one, even engineering sciences is also a common section for all to attempt. Engineering sciences syllabus was vast, but it wasn't necessary to focus on all. We have prepared a table which shows topic’s and chapter’s which were an integral part of the examination this year.

TopicChapterDifficulty level

Applied MechanicsLaw of Mechanics – Lame’s theorem – Forces, Moments and Couples – Displacement, Velocity, and Acceleration – Friction – Moment of Inertia.Moderate
ChemistryAdsorption – Chromatography – Chemical kinetics – Electrochemistry – Spectroscopy – Fuels and Combustion.Easy

Section 3 - Elective Subject

Section three of the exam is different for everyone, depending on the elective subject they chose at the time of registration. TANCET authorities do love to surprise its test takers, and that is why the questions in this section can range from 40-45 for a total of 40 marks.
