Last Updated - September 22, 2017

GATE EE (Electrical Engineering) 2017 paper was conducted on February 11, 2017 in 2 sessions: morning and afternoon session. The exam carried 65 questions which were to be completed in 3-hour duration.

GATE EE paper had both MCQs and Numerical Type Questions. The difficulty level of GATE EE paper was easy to moderate. Candidates who prepared well for GATE 2017 can get a really good rank. Power Electronics, Power Systems and Electrical Machines dominated the GATE EE paper.

All the 3 sections had a different difficulty level. The General Aptitude section was moderate to difficult. Candidates found English the most difficult one while the Technical Subject was easy to moderate.

Here, we are providing you the GATE 2017 EE paper analysis by the questions predicted. The marks distribution of topics asked in GATE Electrical Engineering paper is depicted in the following bar graph:
