The mode of the examination was CBT (Computer Based Test) where applicants were asked to answer all 65 questions, which carried 100 marks. According to the aspirants who had appeared for the final session of GATE 2018, the exam level was moderate to difficult.

Let’s delve deeper and get a detailed analysis underneath –

Session-5, EC, 10th Feb, 2017, forenoon slot, 9:00 am - 12 pm:

Compared to the previous year question paper, this year GATE exam sees a difference as more weightage was given to digital logic in comparison to the analog and communication, which are considered as the core subjects. For other subjects, the weightage was more or less the same. Candidates found no NAT (Numerical Answer Type) questions as maximum number of questions were conceptual based. Those who had a very clear concept would surely bag good score. However, the overall paper was pretty much reasonable.
