If you have more to say about GATE experience, write in the comment box or email and we will publish it here.

Prasant says: This time paper was easy but the numericals were difficult. There was no pattern followed for the numericals. Even the obvious topics of numericals were not there.

Raunak says: Question was easy but some numerical were difficult…Overall easy paper..but pattern were not followed…

Rohit says: I Am still confused, half the answers i gave was correct , but after seeing this comments am in a dilemma of even cutt off . I think paper was easy but tricky to make students confuse in the question itself . Half of the students are interested in knowing the answers but i think its more about questions to understand. The whole point is to understand students concerned about the diverse design program in working as well as creative.

Mas says: Who the hell says that paper was easy , it was just like the previous year papers , the only fact is that most of the questions were tempting and made us feel like we know about their answers but reality was somewhat different . A decent paper I must say.

AK says: The paper wasn’t easy by any means. I guess everyone’ been just saying that it was easy. At the max, the cut off may increase by 2-3 marks from the previous year cut off, definitely not more than that.


Following are questions asked in the exam: Questions are provided by the aspirants for the aspirants. Keep visiting for updates and answer with solution.

    Congrats for candidates who challenged the question.
    As I expected, No other challenges on answer keys accepted.

  3. do iit roorkee (MURP) iit kharagpur (MCP) conduct interview for admission or is it only on gate score? where to find latest information regarding this? the websites dont seem to show anything in particular.

    1. IIT Roorkee conducts interview for M.arch and M.U.R.P both. 30% selection will be based on interview and 70% on the basis of gate score.

      1. what do thy ask in interview …..i took interior in my b.arch…now i want to switch to urban ….is it possible ?

  4. What is the minimum percentage required in B.Arch to get in IITs(IIT Kgp specifically)? Do they consider B.Arch marks at all or admission is just based on your GATE score?

  5. The Question paper was just as hard as the last one. The only difference is that , they convinced us that the paper was easy by using trick questions.

      1. MJ are you crazy ? For any exam the cutoff moves around 33% – 40% of the highest marks secured.
        Use some common sense , the cutoff you are suggesting is nearly 50 %

        1. In 2015 cut off was nearly 43
          ..so don’t be surprised this time. Nd use ur commonsense as pr paper difficulty nd canditure expected marks..

          1. Paper wasn’t that easy brother I too expect 50+ score, BTW I don’t know whether what you are saying is true or not but still 45 won’ t be the cutoff this year.

          2. 2015 qs was conventional type..those who prepared well did good..thats why cut off and highest increased..both in 2016 and 2018 were unconventional pattern, seems easy though after exam..people without preparation did well comparably..and in 2016 gen people got 70+ rank for 50+ marks..in 2017, 45 rank with 58 marks when the paper was tough conventional..no one can actually tell what will happen this time..only hoping for the best.

  6. Hi admin, whats the expected rank for score between 47-50.. Can u please give me link to know about last year cutoff of colleges.. TIA

      1. This does make me feel hopeful! 🙂 But I’m trying my best to not have high expectations and later deal with disappointment! Let’s hope the qualifying mark is within the expected range! Considering quite a large number of people found the paper easier this year, I’m a bit worried about the cutoff.. Fingers crossed for the results! Good luck everyone!

        1. Please challenge the question! I think it would work out if a bunch of people challenge it with proper supportive material (like links, pdf etc)

  7. Discuss below if anyone planning to challenge official answer keys. (Use question no. as given in OFFICIAL QUESTION PAPER and answer key)

        1. Its 15, Dont lose your money.
          Area = 100 sqm
          Rain fall 60mm/hr = .06m/hr
          Collection per hour = 6 cum./hr
          After 20% loss = 4.8 cum./hr
          Time taken to fill the tank completely = 72/4.8 = 15 hrs

          Another way to calculate
          1 hr – 6 cum. collected – 4.8 cum. stored
          10 hr – 60 cum. collected – 48 cum. stored
          15 hr – 90 cum. collected – 72 cum. stored

          While calculating in your method
          you took 1.2×72 = 86.4 cum to be collected
          you collected 86.4 cum,
          you stored 86.4 x 80/100 = 69.12

          In your method you should calculate like below
          Total to be collected = y
          80% of y stored , y(80/100) = 72
          that means ……. 0.8y = 72
          y= 72/0.8 = 90cum.
          that is 90 cum. has to be collected and we loss 20% of that to collect 72 cum
          Time taken to fill the tank completely = 90/6 = 15 hrs

          1. Storage : 1. Act of storing
            2. State of being stored

            When case 2 is considered by after having read the question 1.e water having been stored in the tank and the loss happening then due to whatever factors(like percolation into the surrounding soil through the walls of the tank or anything else) :

            Volume of the tank = 72cum
            Loss of 20% = .2*72= 14.4cum
            Total volume of storage necessary to fill up the tank in spite of 20% loss = 72+14.4 = 86.4cum

            Water collected on the roof /hr = 60mm = .06m
            Total volume collected on roof/hr = .06*100 = 6cum

            Therefore, necessary time to fill the tank = 86.4/6 = 14.4hrs

            The ambiguity in the question lies in the meaning that one attributes to the word “storage”. Is it the ‘process of storing’ or ‘the state of being store’. If you go by the ‘process of storing’ then the answer would be 15. If you go by ‘the state of something being stored’ then the answer would be 14.4.

          2. The above point is valid since they have mentioned about 20% loss during storage (and not during the process of collection) and storage could be thought of as an act of storage or the state of being stored..

    1. Can we challenge Q55 of gate paper…the built-up area qestion ..
      Site -10 ha
      total height -45 m
      Option A floor to floor height is 3.6 m
      Option B floor to floor height is 4.5m
      Therefore
      No. Of floor in option A -45/3.6= 12.5
      No. Of floor in option B – 45/4.5= 10
      So additional built-up achieved by A Shud be 25% not 20%

      1. okay pr , i gave the same answer like you but the way gate guys have solved it is 20 % , coz no. of floors can’t be in decimal , either it can be 12 or 13 and according to the decimal round off rule we have to take 12 (coz its 12.5 , if it was above 12.5 like 12.6 or 12.9 we would have to take 13 as round off digit) so 12-2=2 so the answer is 20% , well i am just telling you the way they have solved you can try your luck . best of luck man …

  9. 53. A building with 100 sqm roof area is connected to a 72 cum rain water collection tank. If the rain fall is 60mm/hr and the loss during water storage 20%, then the time taken to fill the tank completely is __________hrs.

    Admin, when calculating the loss of 20%, should it be with respect to the volume of water collected on the roof or the volume of water in the tank? There’s really an ambiguity here.

  10. 19. According to UN, one of the component for measuring ‘Inclusive growth’ is

    A. Economic well-being

    B. Physical infrastructure

    C. Education

    D. Life expectancy

      1. This question could be challenged! Because economic growth alone isn’t a part of inclusive growth. A number of other factors have been added in the recent times.

    1. q = (k / s) A dT
      = U A dT
      for 230 thick wall
      q = 2.4 x 50 x 2 = 240 W
      for 20 thick concrete block
      q = 1.7 x 50 x 2 (Taking temp difference as 2)
      = 170 W
      change in heat flow is 70W

  11. Admin, for the 56th qn regarding the negative BM, are we supposed to enter the answer as 225 or -225? As it is already mentioned negative in the qn, I’m confused. Are both answers right?

    1. GD, both should be right because it is just a sign convention. Different authors use different sign convention for the same question. Even the official answer of previous year GATE exams could be produced as proof if the examiner doesn’t award marks. (negative sign in the question might have been used as a trap to look like a difficult question to be asked for the first time)

      1. According to my knowledge, there wasn’t any such problem regarding the sign convention fr the past few years. The previous answer keys have solutions ranging from x to y, but not for the sign. Will it be worth challenging the qn in case a problem arises?

  12. 14. World Trade Center (WTC) in 2001collapsed due to

    A. Wind load failure

    B. Foundation failure

    C. Thermal performance failure of reinforced steel in RCC

    D. Thermal performance failure of structure steel.

    answer is D, right?

      1. Isn’t the MIT research paper talking about ‘structural steel tubes’ and not reinforced steel in RCC? WTC isn’t a RCC structure.

        1. In case if it was made up of solely the steel tube , you could be right but the core of the structure was made of RCC , READ the whole text carefully.

        1. Absolutely no other report matters before the final report presented by the official body entrusted with the work to examine the failure of WTC. Look into that report!

      1. I am expecting 100 marks , what does it mean , expectation hardly meets reality !!! Please relate your answers with the key IIT-G shall be providing shortly.

          1. Well the question is ambiguous in itself , an instruction for hearing impaired can be given in a same way as the speech impaired would impart his information.

  13. 57. An isolated enclosure shown in the figure has inlet P and outlet Q of 25 sqm each, on the opposite walls. The outdoor wind speed is 5m/sec. If coefficient of effectiveness is 0.6, the rate of natural ventilation in the enclosure due to wind action is __________cum/hr?

    Anyone solved?

  14. 11. Assuming other variable remaining constant, the “Tropical Summer Index”

    A. Increases with increase in air velocity

    B. Decrease with increase in WBT (Wet Bulb Temperature)

    C. Decrease with increase in global temperature

    D. Increase with increase in vapor pressure

    1. Increases with increase in vapour pressure because rest three possibilities are wrong if you go by the equation for tropical summer index.

  15. A building with 100 sqm roof area is connected to a 72 cum rain water collection tank. If the rain fall is 60mm/hr and the loss during water storage 20%, then the time taken to fill the tank completely is __________hrs.
    Is the answer 15 or 14.4?

  16. I think, answer key is released, please now calculate and comment about cutt off . Let’s see if the answers we gave was correct or not , now we can guess for expected cutt off .

  17. Who the hell says that paper was easy , it was just like the previous year papers , the only fact is that most of the questions were tempting and made us feel like we know about their answers but reality was somewhat different .
    A decent paper I must say.

    1. The paper wan’t easy by any means. I guess everyone’ been just saying that it was easy. At the max, the cut off may increase by 2-3 marks from the previous year cut off, definitely not more than that..

      1. okay , great , one more thing if i have to use this score for next year then will they consider the rank according to this score ??

        1. Anand, mostly it depends on this year cut-off. 40-50 marks range seems not secure. (There is big difference between 40 marks and 50 marks)

  18. One of the question between 46-49 was

    Dead load 18 tonne , live load 12 toner , facto of safety 1.5 and load on column as 10 tonne/ sqm , area of footing in sqm________

        1. Let the result come man , if every one is saying so , lets just wait . Is there any one who remember the question no 46-50 ?

  19. I Am still confused, half the answers i gave was correct , but after seeing this comments am in a dilemma of even cutt off . I think paper was easy but tricky to make students confuse in the question itself . Half of the students are interested in knowing the answers but i think its more about questions to understand. The whole point is to understand students concerned about the diverse design program in working as well as creative .

  20. A builder develops 12 hectare site. Developmental cost is 300 million rs per hectare. Assuming the saleable area as 60% calculate the selling price in million per hectare so as to provide the builder a profit of 20%
    Ans: 360 ? 600?

    1. total developmental cost = 300X12 = 3600 million
      profit = 20%
      total selling cost = 3600+20%
      = 3600+720 = 4320 million
      saleable area = 60% of 12 hectare
      = .6X12 = 7.2 hectare
      selling cost per hectare = 4320/7.2
      = 600 million

  36. 2 hectare plot with FAR 2. Ratio of residential to commercial is 3:2 and parking required for residential is 1 ecs per 100sqm, for commercial is 1.25ecs per sqm.
    Calculate total ecs

    1. Total buildable area=20000×2=40000Sq.m
      Residential area (3/5)x40000=24000sq.m
      Commercial=(2/5)x40000=16000Sq.m
      No.of ECS for residential =(24000/100)x1=240
      No.of Ecs for commercial=(16000/100)x1.25=200

      So the total no.of Ecs=440
