This year, IIT Delhi organizes the GATE 2020 and the syllabus for the entrance test is available at the official website. GATE 2020 syllabus is different for all the 24 papers, however only the General Aptitude syllabus is common in all papers. Candidates appearing for the EE paper of the GATE this year can see the **GATE Syllabus for EEE** and all its details here. By knowing the syllabus, candidates can plan accordingly and prepare a strategy for the exam preparation. As there is lot of time for the exam, candidates need to utilize it properly. Know more about the EEE syllabus of the entrance test here.

## GATE EEE Syllabus 2020 Details

GATE EEE paper is one of most competitive paper as huge number of candidates will apply and appear for the exam every year. Over 1.5 lakh candidates will appear for this paper every year and it is expected to raise too. So, definitely there will be a huge competition and the applicants have prepare thoroughly based on the **GATE syllabus for EEE 2020** given by the exam conducting authority.

As per the information available last year, a total of 15 questions will be from General Aptitude and the Engineering Mathematics will be asked. Whereas, 70

questions will be subject based. That means the candidate have to attempt a total of 85 questions in the EEE paper. There will be a total of 10 sections covered in the **GATE 2020 syllabus for EEE** and they include, Engineering Mathematic, Electric Circuits, Electromagnetic Fields, Signals and Systems, Electrical Machines, Power Systems, Control Systems, Electrical and Electronic Measurements, Analog and Digital Electronics, and Power Electronics. Along with EEE syllabus of GATE, candidates should also prepare GA.

## GATE Syllabus for Electrical Engineering PDF

GATE Electrical Syllabus 2020 PDF is available in the official GATE website and candidates can download it for their reference. Here we also gave the detailed syllabus in the tabular form for easy understanding which students can check it. Also check the GATE syllabus for General Aptitude that we have given in the other article of this site as the questions are also asked from that sections.

## GATE Syllabus for EE with Exam Pattern

It is must that all the applicants should be aware of the GATE EEE syllabus along with the exam pattern. Check the below given points to know more.

- GATE 2020 for EEE paper consists of two type of questions, MCQ and NAT.
- The paper includes GA and subject specific questions.
- For MCQ questions, 1 or 2 marks are awarded for each correct answer.
- 1/3 will be deducted for each wrong 1 mark answers in MCQs and 2/3 will be deducted for each wrong 2 mark answer of MCQs.
- NAT questions will have no negative marks.
- For unattempt questions, zero marks will be given.
