By set wise analyzing GATE Mechanical Engineering paper for the 12 years from 2008-2019 we can conclude that Thermodynamics & Applications, Manufacturing Technology, Theory of Machines & Vibrations & Strength of Materials are the most important subjects from number of questions & marks point of view. So candidate must prepare these subjects very well.

Must Check : PSUs 2019 Application

The reason behind providing this subject wise and set wise analysis is that the candidates can understand what subject(s) they need to prepare first and if time is less what subject(s) they can skip or prepare less using subject wise analysis & by using set wise analysis candidate can understand that what are the subjects, common in all sets of a branch from which most of the questions are being asked. We hope this analysis will help candidate in their GATE 2020 exam preparation.
