## 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.
