Become Advantaged By Being Conversant With Gate Syllabus 2014
Every entrance examination bears its own advantages and you as a student need that focused approach to set a career with such an entrance test. For every examination you need to understand the basics of syllabus so as to make sure that you achieve your desired performance as per the academic branches of your preference. Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE 2014) is one such coveted entrance examination to test your skills for allowing you admission in the post graduate programs in Engineering like ME, MTech or even direct PhD.
The syllabus for GATE in 2014 will comprise of the similar pattern of questions although there are some basic alteration has been applied to the conduct of GATE 2014. The applicants have to appear for the general section of the examination and have to select any one of the 22 defined papers for examination. These 22 papers are catering to special branches of Engineering and will test the comprehension skills of the candidate applying from his/ her core branch of Engineering.
The Common Section of GATE Syllabus 2014: General Aptitude
[10 questions carrying a total of 15 marks]
This section will comprise of two major sections to test the Verbal Ability and the Numerical Ability:
Verbal Ability: English Language Comprehension, Grammar, Sentence Formation, Critical Reasoning, Verbal Analysis, Grouping of Words and Structural Analysis.
Numerical Ability: Numerical Analysis, Data Computation, Estimation, and Numerical Interpretation Skills.
The Subjective Section of GATE Syllabus 2014:
There will be 22 subjective sections out of which a candidate can select any one as per his competency. This section will cater to the specific branches of Engineering study and the syllabus covered within.
The candidates have to appear their preferred papers on the designated dates of the GATE 2014.
