# ME – GATE Subjects Wise Paper Analysis – SOM and Engg. Mechanics

## Strength of Materials and Engg. Mechanics

We provide the GATE Subjects Wise Paper Analysis from 2003 onward, Before that The GATE pattern was totally different and the level of questions was also different. from 2003 till date, GATE has continuously maintained the level of questions and the marks distribution from each subject is almost fixed.

From 2014, GATE has started conducting exams set wise, means no one knows in which seating he/she will seat and what will be the level of that particular set. But So each and every topic of GATE is important now to achieve a high score in GATE. But still, Many students ask for the important topics and the weightage of the subjects in the GATE exam.

Note: GATE Subjects Wise Paper Analysis of other subjects will be announced according to the schedule of Ignited Engineers test series.

## 1. Engineering Mechanics Paper Analysis:

On an average from 2003 to 2017, It can easily be observed that in 100 marks, 5.52 Marks is from the Engineering Mechanics itself.

## 2. Strength of Materials (Mechanics of Materials) Paper Analysis:

On an average from 2003 to 2017, It can easily be observed that in 100 marks, 9.47 Marks is from the Strength of Materials itself.

Note: Most of the questions asked from SoM are from axial deflection, torsion, BMD and SFD, relations between elastic constants, Mohr circle, thin cylinders and pressure vessels, buckling, thermal stress and strain and energy methods. question from these sections can be solved very easily with fundamental concepts and some basic formulae. It does not require advanced SoM.
