GATE CH Analysis From Last Year

To get a comparison of the paper from last year, check the analysis from last year below:

The paper was tricky and technical and can be only be solved when the concepts were clear. The chapter wise analysis is as follows:

CRE – The questions from CRE had more weightage in the paper. CRE comprises of the questions from selectivity, parallel reaction, activation energy, reaction reactor, non – isothermal reactors, non – ideal reactors.

PDC – From this section, questions of 4 to 5 marks were asked. The questions were framed from the topics like offset, two tank system, output question.

Fluid dynamics: This sections was easy.

Mass transfer: The questions from mass transfer ranged from moderate to difficult.

Mechanical operation – Both 1 or 2 marks questions were asked from this section and the level of questions was not too tough.

Thermodynamics, Heat transfer – These two sections were also considered easy.

Chemical technology – In this section, the questions were asked of 8 marks.

Economics – In this section, 2 questions were asked.
