Total number of questions: In all the papers total number of questions will be 65.
Total Marks:  For all codes exam will be of 100 marks.
Distribution of questions:  
  • For all codes 10 questions carrying a total of 15 marks are in General Aptitude (GA).
  • In the papers having codes AE, AG, BT, CE, CH, CS, EC, EE, IN, ME, MN, MT, PI, TF and XE, the Engineering Mathematics will carry  around  15% of the total marks, the General Aptitude section will carry 15% of the total marks and the  remaining percentage of the total marks is devoted to the subject of the paper.
  • In the papers bearing the codes AR, CY, EY, GG, MA, PH and XL, the General Aptitude section will carry 15% of the total marks and the remaining 85% of the total marks is devoted to the subject of the paper.
GATE 2015 would contain questions of two different types in various papers:
  • Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ): They carrying 1 or 2 marks each in all papers and sections. These questions are objective in nature, and each will have a choice of four answers, out of which the candidate has to mark the correct answer(s).
  •  Numerical Answer Questions: They are of 1 or 2 marks each in all papers and sections. For these questions the answer is a real number, to be entered by the candidate using the virtual keypad. No choices will be shown for this type of questions.
Design of Questions: The questions in a paper may be designed to test the following abilities:
  • Recall: These are based on facts, principles, formulae or laws of the discipline of the paper. The candidate is expected to be able to obtain the answer either from his/her memory of the subject or at most from a one-line computation.
  •  Comprehension: These questions will test the candidate’s understanding of the basics of his/her field, by requiring him/her to draw simple conclusions from fundamental ideas.
  •  Application: In these questions, the candidate is expected to apply his/her knowledge either through computation or by logical reasoning.
  • The questions based on the above logics may be a mix of single stand-alone statement/ phrase /data type questions, combination of option codes type questions or match items type questions.
  • Analysis and Synthesis: In these questions, the candidate is presented with data, diagrams, images etc. that require analysis before a question can be answered. A Synthesis question might require the candidate to compare two or more pieces of information.
     Marking Scheme for all exams:
     Negative marking: This scheme is common to all exams.
