    The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE-2012) was conducted successfully on 12 Feb.2012 across India. The exam witnessed a two-fold increase in the number of aspirants; this year close to 12 lakh students appeared for the exam, up from 5.5 lakh last year.<br>
    <hr class="previewbreak"><br>
    The exam threw no surprises on the candidates and was in accordance with the pattern specified in the exam prospectus. The paper consisted of 65 questions with a maximum score of 100 marks. The question-wise breakup of the paper was as follows: <ul><li>Engineering Mathematics: 15 marks</li><li>General aptitude (Verbal Ability &amp; Numerical Ability): 15 marks</li><li>Core Engineering Subjects: 70 marks</li></ul>This year, the cut-offs are expected to rise due to an increase in the number of aspirants, as well as the lower level of examination. Here is a branch-wise analysis of GATE-2012--<br>

    <font size="4"><strong>GATE 2012 CS/IT Analysis</strong></font><br>

    A majority of the questions were from DBMS &amp; Data Structure &amp; Algorithm and Computer Network whereas very few questions were seen from Compiler Design. Surprisingly, there were no questions from Software Engineering. In terms of the difficulty level, questions from TOC &amp; DMGT were the toughest and questions on DBMS and Data structure were the easiest.<br>

    <font size="4"><strong>GATE 2012 Electronics and Communication Engineering Analysis</strong></font><br>

    A majority of the questions were from Electromagnetic Field Theory (EMT) whereas very few questions were seen from EDC. In terms of the difficulty level, questions from Electronics Devices &amp; circuits (EDC), Analog, EMT, Communication were tougher. One surprise was that there were no questions from 'microprocessors' this year.<br>

    <font size="4"><strong>GATE 2012 Electrical Engineering Analysis</strong></font><br>

    A majority of the questions were from Math and Networks whereas very few questions were seen from Electromagnetic Theory (EMT). In terms of the difficulty level, questions from Analog, Network, EMT were tough as compared to last year which had Analog as its toughest subject. GATE 2012 saw the weight-age allotted to Network increase from 7% to 13%, while the weight-age allotted to Power System decreased from 11% to 6% as compared to last year.<br>

    <font size="4"><strong> GATE 2012 Instrumentation Engineering Analysis</strong></font><br>

    A majority of the questions were from Transducers and Networks whereas very few questions were seen from Analog and Digital Electronics. In terms of the difficulty level, questions from Networks and Transducers were tougher than last year's paper which had Analog and Control Systems as its toughest subject.<br>

    <font size="4"><strong>GATE 2012 Mechanical Engineering Analysis</strong></font><br>

    GATE '12 saw the weight-age allotted to Manufacturing &amp; Production Engineering increase from 12 % to 16%, while the weight-age allotted to Thermodynamics decreased from 19% to 13%. There was very little change in the weight-age of subjects like Maths, General Aptitude &amp; Applied Mechanics &amp; Design.<br>

    About 21% questions were from Manufacturing section whereas very few questions were seen from Thermal Science. In terms of the difficulty level, questions from Mechanics &amp; design were the toughest.<br>
