Subject Wise Important Topics For GATE 2017

You all must be worried about the GATE 2017 exam. You should be up to some extent. Never let worry convert to stress. Since the GATE 2017 exam will be conducted in the upcoming months, you must have your bags packed and prepared for the test.

I always give stress on smart work instead of hard work. Preparing for any competitive exam with very vast syllabus requires a little bit of strategy because sometimes if hard work is not done in the right direction, it may lead to an unsatisfactory result.

Let’s recall one thing that 15 marks of General Ability and 15 marks of Engineering Mathematics is common for every GATE paper and guys, do not make a mistake of leaving Mathematics because it’s easy and at the same time it cover the major part of the Mark distribution.

I usually see students waste their time learning Antonym and Synonym for Gate exam. Do not make this mistake as it is not productive.

For calculating average of 2014 and 2015 year as there was more than one paper I have taken average after adding the number of questions regarding their chapter.

Now, the important topics which need to be focussed on in every key subject of Civil Engineering from GATE point of view are as follows:
