So you are wondering what is the minimum marks that could help you scrape through GATE Exam?
You want to know the portion of the GATE EE syllabus that you should do which will help you score marks within the cutoff marks to get admission into the M.Tech. program in Electrical Engineering in India?
Then you are on the right page.
Let us start off by first taking a look at some numbers that we have obtained.
The qualifying or cutoff marks to get admission into the M.Tech. program for Electrical Engineering in India, through GATE for the various categories, were:
General: 25.10/ 65.00
OBC: 22.50/ 65.00
SC/ ST/ PH: 16.70/ 65.00
Now let us have a look at the distribution of marks per topic, in GATE Electrical Engineering test, after taking an average of the weightage of marks per subject over a couple of years:
Keep it as it is
From these numbers, you can surely gauge that the most important topics for GATE Electrical Engineering test are Electrical Machines, Analog & Digital Electronics and Electrical circuits and Fields. If a student manages to solve the questions from these topics correctly, then they can safely say that they will be able to get admission into the M.Tech. program of some institute in India in Electrical Engineering.
However, we do not recommend you to study only these topics and go, but we recommend you to give more importance to these topics as they will help you improve your GATE Score and hence a better rank. You should also focus on ac and dc transmission, signals and systems, power electronics, energy and power factor etc.

Below mentioned are some of those important topics of GATE EE syllabus, from where many questions have been asked previously.
These are some of the topics from the electrical engineering syllabus for the GATE entrance examination that students often fear about. Make a not of these topics and start working hard towards these.
GATE online is a highly competitive test with papers comparatively tougher than other entrance examinations. The EE syllabus is comprised of many different core topics which genuinely require high focus. To succeed on the exam, one has to work tremendously hard and keep the focus on each section of the paper, mainly ac and dc transmission, energy and power factor etc.
Aspirants must prepare under expert guidance to successfully clear the exam. Here the aim is not only clearing the exam but also holding a good rank that will help in getting admission to top colleges offering higher studies.
There are plenty of books available for the aspirants to refer. They can even watch video tutorials by the experts in EE.
Hopefully, the above-mentioned topics and points will help you with your preparation. Give some extra focus on the mentioned topics, practice the frequently asked topics well, give as much as possible mock tests and you will certainly clear the cutoff for GATE Electrical Engineering (EE).
