GATE 2017 Computer Science (CSE) Paper Analysis Session 5

Last Updated - September 26, 2017

GATE 2017 CSE Paper for session 5 has been successfully conducted on February 11, 2017. GATE 2017 CSE paper was divided in three sections i.e. Engineering mathematics, General aptitude and Technical subjects. It consisted of 65 questions carrying a maximum of 100 marks. Candidates had to solve the paper in three hours. The difficulty level of the paper was moderate. The paper has questions broadly divided into numerical answer type and multiple choice questions (MCQs).

GATE 2017 paper showed that most of the questions were similar to the questions asked in last year’s GATE Exam. IIT Roorkee has followed the almost the same weightage compared to last year. Here, we are providing session 5 analysis with the weightage of each section with respective marks & number of questions in this article. Check the details of the topics and paper analysis introduced by various institutes.
