Analysis of previous years GATE Food Technology Papers (2011 – 2021) –

Before the preparation of the exam, it is very important to understand the question pattern, its depth, its coverage of topics within the syllabus. For this, one must go through previous years’ papers and look for the pattern. If there is a pattern, we study accordingly and if we don’t find a pattern, the exam preparation strategy totally changes.

We did an analysis of the last 10 yrs papers on food technology (life science) and here are some observations.

Disclaimer: Some of the topics/subjects can be overlap, so you should not take these data on an absolute basis but look for a common trend
