GATE 2018 Exam Analysis
Mechanical Paper Analysis:
The Mechanical Paper was conducted in four sessions in February.
The questions were mostly conceptual in nature. The 1 mark questions were easier than the previous year; however, the 2 mark questions were very difficult.   In Mechanical Engineering, mostly Numerical Answer Type (NAT) questions were asked and the proportion was higher in comparison to last year. It is easier to attempt direct Theoretical questions and Multiple-Choice-Questions (MCQs), which were lesser in number. Also, this year there were 10 sections and a part of the General Aptitude.
