We analyzed last ten years question papers of GATE Computer Science/Information technology as per the number of questions appearing from each subject. Below are the subject wise weightage of marks in GATE exam from Computer Science stream.
|Subject||1 Mark Questions||2 Mark Question||Total Marks|
|Computer Organization & Architect||1-4||3-12||8-24|
|C Programming & Data Structure||1-5||3-10||7-25|
|Algorithm Design & Analysis||2 – 8||6 – 15||15 – 32|
|Theory of Computation||1-4||3-7||9-16|
From the above subject wise weightage, we can see the Mathematics(including aptitude + English) has the highest weightage. The subjects like Algorithm , Computer Organization, C programming and Data Structure and Theory of Computation should not be ignored.
