## GATE CS 2017: Detailed Analysis

Overall Difficulty level was ranging between Easy to Moderate. Majority of the questions were direct and concept based. It was observed that more weight age was assigned to Topics such as Theory of Computation, Computer Organization & Architecture, Engineering Mathematics while the weight age of Discrete Mathematics and Design & Analysis of Algorithms has come down this year.

Let us now go through the Detailed Analysis for GATE CS 2017:

 Subject No. of Questions Total Weight Age Difficulty Level Topics Covered General Aptitude 1 Mark – 5 2 Marks - 5 15 Moderate Probability, Numerical ability, Passage, Grammar Design and Analysis of Algorithm 1 Mark – 1 2 Marks - 3 7 Moderate Asymptotic notation, Time Complexity, Greedy Technique, Quick sort Compiler Design 1 Mark – 2 2 Marks - 1 4 Easy First Follow, Language Processing & Lexical Analysis, Syntax Analysis (LR Parsing) Computer Networks 1 marks- 2 2 marks- 3 8 Easy Stop and wait protocol, CRC check, TCP protocol, Network Layer(Ipv4), Propagation Delay Data Base Management System 1 marks- 2 2 marks-3 8 Moderate Functional Dependency, SQL, Tupple calculus, Relation algebra, File Structuring & Indexing, Transaction Management & Concurrency Protocols Discrete Mathematics and Graph Theory 1 marks- 3 2 marks- 1 5 Easy Tree, Spanning Tree Digital Circuits 1 marks- 2 2 marks- 1 4 Easy Flip flop, Logic gate, K-map Computer Organization and Architecture 1 marks- 4 2 marks- 5 14 Moderate Cache Memory, Memory mapping, Pipe Line, Addressing mode Theory of Computation 1 marks -2 2 marks- 4 10 Easy Regular Grammar, Turing Machine, DFA Operating System 1 marks -2 2 marks- 2 6 Easy Thread, Scheduling, Critical Section, Page Replacement Programming and Data structure 1 marks- 4 2 marks- 3 10 Difficult Pointer, Structure, Function, Recursion, Linked Lists, Programming in C Engineering Mathematics 1 marks- 2 2 marks- 5 12 Moderate Mathematical Logic, Set Theory, Combinatorics, Probability

Overall, it can be said that GATE CS 2017 paper was Easier in comparison to previous year.

We hope that the Detailed Exam Analysis will surely prove beneficial for all those aspiring to appear in GATE 2018.
