    Comments on GATE 2017 Electrical Engineering session I by GateForum

    • EE paper I has both formula based and concept based questions.
    • Compared to last year, in Measurements weightage has come down while it is increased in Analog circuits and Power Electronics.
    • In remaining topics IIT Roorkee has followed almost the same weightage compared to last year.
    • In general the overall difficulty level of the paper is easy than last year.
