GateForum’s comment on GATE 2017 Mechanical Engineering paper –

  • ME paper I had more concept based questions than only formula based questions.
  • Compared to last year, Engineering Mechanics weightage has come down while it is increased in Strength of Materials, Thermal Science and Manufacturing Science.
  • In remaining topics, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee has followed has almost the same weightage compared to last year.
  • In general the overall difficulty level of the paper is higher than last year.
