GATE CSE question paper comprises of three sections that include Technical Section, General Aptitude and Engineering Mathematics. The analysis of all the sections is elaborated below separately.
The CS paper was easy to a moderate level where a candidate could easily attempt most of the questions. Around 24 questions were from NAT section. More questions were framed out of Programming and Data structures and Discrete Mathematics topics.
Tabulated below is the bifurcation of questions with marking scheme for GATE CSE paper:

The conclusion for the paper are listed below:
It can be seen that the GATE has surprised the students by limiting the questions based on Engineering Mathematics from 15% to 7%. Even it is reported by many students that the technical questions were somewhat tricky than that of last year.
The technical section of GATE 2019 question paper is the core subject as all the B.Tech. graduates would be appearing for the test. So, the questions from this section might carry more weightage from the other two sections. It was time-consuming section with the moderate difficulty level. Subtopics like Data Structure & Algorithms, Theory Computation, Computer Networks and suchlike play a vital role to score high marks in the technical section.
General aptitude is a section that is common in all GATE Question Papers. The difficulty level, however, is expected to be moderate to easy for this section. If practised and studied well, this section could be less time consuming and easy to attempt.
Engineering mathematics is a subject that is introduced to students in their B. Tech program. It comprises of Linear Algebra, Calculus, Differential Equations, Complex Variables and Numerical Methods Questions. As per the analysis, the questions of this section were moderate. Students are recommended to be very careful with their silly mistakes while attempting this section.
