GATE 2022 Subject Wise Weightage  Electrical, Electronics, Civil, Mechanical, and Computer Science Engineering are the topmost paper in the GATE examination. The trends of the GATE exam change year to year, chapter-wise weightage is the most asked question among the students in recent times. Previous year analysis is helpful to predict the exam pattern in the upcoming years. Let’s take a look at the GATE subject-wise analysis for the previous year's Civil, Mechanical, ECE, Electrical, and CSE papers.

Electrical, Electronics, Civil, Mechanical and Computer Science Engineering are the topmost paper in the GATE examination other than Civil Engineering. The trends of the GATE examination change year to year, Chapter wise weightage is the most asked question among the students in recent times. Previous year analysis is helpful to predict the exam pattern in the upcoming years. Let’s take a look at the chapter-wise analysis for EE, ECE, CE, ME and CS papers from GATE 2019,2020 and 2021.
