The question paper consisted of both multiple-choice questions (MCQ) & numerical answer type questions.

The ME question paper was divided into 3 sections viz. General Aptitude, Engineering Mathematics and the Qualifying Degree Section i.e. Mechanical Engineering. All the questions carried 1 or 2 marks for all papers and individual sections. In GATE ME, Numerical Answer Type (NAT) questions, candidates were required to answered using the virtual keyboard as no answer choice was provided.

**GATE 2017 Result **for Mechanical Engineering exam is expected to be declared on or before March 27, 2017. Candidates who qualify **GATE 2017 **can participate in the **GATE ****counselling**** process**.
