GATE ME Analysis 2012

GATE 2012 Analysis
GATE 2012 (Mechanical Engg.) largely followed the pattern of last year's paper, as previously announced in the GATE 2012 prospectus. The paper consisted of 65 questions with a maximum score of 100 marks. The questions were MCQ type with 4 options. Every wrong answer incurred a negative marking of 1/3. The question-wise breakup of the ME paper was as follows:

  • Engineering Mathematics: 15 marks
  • General aptitude (Verbal Ability & Numerical Ability): 15 marks
  • Core Engineering Subjects: 70 marks

In general, the paper was of similar standard to that of last year. around 21% of the questions came from the manufacturing section and very few questions were seen from Thermal Science which includes Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics & Heat Transfer. In terms of the difficulty level, questions from Mechanics & Design were the toughest.

GATE 2012 saw the weight-age allotted to Manufacturing & Production Engg. increase from 12 % to 16%, while the weight-age allotted to Thermodynamics decreased from 19% to 13% as compared to last year. There was very little change in the weight-age of subjects like Maths, General Aptitude & Applied Mechanics & Design.

Last year the cut-off marks for this branch were: 30.81 for general, 27.73 for OBC & 20.54 for SC/ST candidates. However, this year cut-off is likely to be slightly higher owing to the large number of students appearing for GATE 2012).
