 Previous Year GATE ECE Paper Analysis by GATE Academy Session 2

The Gate Academy had done the analysis for the afternoon session of last year GATE ECE paper. As per the analysis done by The Gate Academy, it was highlighted that 80% of the problems were similar to or based on the problems asked in GATE 2016. Not only this, but few of the questions in Mechanical were also exactly the same as they were asked in GATE 2016. The same case was with Mathematics. However, the overall paper was easy. So candidates who are preparing for GATE 2018 must practice a lot of sample papers, last year test series and mock test so that they have strong preparation base.
