Exam Pattern of GATE 2022 PI Exam
The PI question paper contained Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs), Multiple Select Questions (MSQs), and Numerical Answer Type (NAT) questions. These questions mainly tested the candidate’s recall, comprehension, application, analysis, and synthesis skills. However, there were a total of 65 questions in the exam paper. Moreover, these questions were divided into 10 from General Aptitude (GA) and 55 from Production and Industrial Engineering. The marks distribution in the paper is done as follows.
- General Aptitude (GA) – 15 marks
- Engineering Mathematics – 13 marks
- PI – 72 marks
The total marks of the question paper is 100. However, there will be negative marking in the PI exam. For every 01 mark MCQ, 1/3 marks will be deducted and for every 02 mark MCQ, 2/3 marks from the question will be deducted. Using this marking scheme, one can easily calculate a tentative score. Reportedly, the official answer keys may be released by the third week of February 2022.
