GATE also known as (The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) is an Aptitude Test for all those wanting to obtain a post graduate degree in Engineering and Information Technology. It is a competitive exam that is conducted at the national level,once in a year most probably in the month of January or February. The upcoming GATE exams are schedule between January 31 to mid February 2015.
These exams are held in all the fields of engineering, be it Aeronautical, Civil, Electrical or Mechanical and to be very very precise there are about 22 papers that are covered under these exams. These examinations are a kind of a benchmark or a threshold, used by most of the engineering colleges and universities for evaluating the candidates with respect to their understanding about engineering, before they apply for admissions in the post graduate engineering courses.
Mechanical Engineering Syllabus GATE 2015:
General Aptitude Test:
This test is a part of the Mechanical Engineering Paper for the GATE 2015 and comprises of a total 10 questions. The total weightage of this section is 15 marks,comprising of 2 parts, the first being Verbal Ability and the second being Numerical ability. The verbal ability mainly consists of English grammar and composition, critical reasoning, sentence completion, instructions and word groups. While the numerical ability consists of numerical question and problems involving mathematical computation.
The remaining 85% of the paper is covered by these topics that are mentioned below.
