The Syllabus is based on the topics of graduation level. 85% of Exam have Core Engineering Syllabus. Which 72% is of basic CS Syllabus and 13% Engineering Mathematics. The paper consists of 65 questions worth 100 marks.
Candidates who appear for the exam must go through the GATE Computer Science and Information Technology syllabus to score better in the exam. CS syllabus is divided into 10 section as given below:
|Main Topics||Sub Topics|
|Discrete Mathematics||Propositional and first order logic. Sets, relations, functions, partial orders and lattices. Groups. Graphs: connectivity, matching, coloring. Combinatorics: counting, recurrence relations, generating functions|
|Linear Algebra||Matrices, determinants, system of linear equations, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, LU decomposition|
|Calculus||Limits, continuity and differentiability. Maxima and minima. Mean value theorem. Integration|
|Probability||Random variables. Uniform, normal, exponential, poisson and binomial distributions. Mean, median, mode and standard deviation. Conditional probability and Bayes theorem|
It deals with logical structure of digital circuits. How the circuits will be made. What the output we will get on joining the circuits.
The Topics are: Boolean algebra. Combinational and sequential circuits. Minimization. Number representations and computer arithmetic (fixed and floating point).
It deals with set of rules for microarchitecture of computer.
The topics are: Machine instructions and addressing modes. ALU, data-path and control unit. Instruction pipelining. Memory hierarchy: cache, main memory and secondary storage; I/O, interface (interrupt and DMA mode).
It is studied to know how the information is stored in the computer and how it will be retrieved back efficiently.
The Topics are: Programming in C. Recursion. Arrays, stacks, queues, linked lists, trees, binary search trees, binary heaps, graphs.
The algorithms are studied to learn how the problems are solved in computer science.It will teach you patterns how can use to solve the problems
The topics are: Searching, sorting, hashing. Asymptotic worst case time and space complexity. Algorithm design techniques: greedy, dynamic programming and divide-and-conquer. Graph search, minimum spanning trees, shortest paths.
Theory of computation (alluded to as TOC here on) establishes a solid framework for a great deal of dynamic territories of computer science. In the event that you take a gander at it from a separation, theory of computation is a nearby cousin of Artificial Intelligence than say Probability or Computer vision
The topics are: Regular expressions and finite automata. Context-free grammars and pushdown automata. Regular and contex-free languages, pumping lemma. Turing machines and undecidability.
It is useful for the improvement software by hiding low level languages and how to detect errors in softwares.
The topics are: Lexical analysis, parsing, syntax-directed translation. Runtime environments. Intermediate code generation.
It is deals with the organisational structure of Operating system, types of operating system and how the operating system works.
The topics are: Processes, threads, inter-process communication, concurrency and synchronization. Deadlock. CPU scheduling. Memory management and virtual memory. File systems.
It deals with how the data is stored, what is database, types of database and how database are useful.
The topics are: ER-model. Relational model: relational algebra, tuple calculus, SQL. Integrity constraints, normal forms. File organization, indexing (e.g., B and B+ trees). Transactions and concurrency control.
It deals with types of networks, how the networking is done, how the information is transferred from one point to other.
The topics are: Concept of layering. LAN technologies (Ethernet). Flow and error control techniques, switching. IPv4/IPv6, routers and routing algorithms (distance vector, link state). TCP/UDP and sockets, congestion control. Application layer protocols (DNS, SMTP, POP, FTP, HTTP). Basics of Wi-Fi. Network security: authentication, basics of public key and private key cryptography, digital signatures and certificates, firewalls.
Also Check GATE Previous Question Papers
GATE is held for 25 different disciplines. The paper is held in online mode. Candidates have to attempt 65 questions in the duration of 3 hours. Questions are of 2 types- Multiple Choice types (MCQ) and Numerical Answer Type (NAT)
The total Marks for 65 questions is 100. Candidate has to use Virtual Calculator during exam as any other physical calculator is prohibited in GATE exam center. There is also Negative Marking included for giving wrong answer:
