- GATE 2017 Important Topics for All Branches.The GATE 2017 Exam will be conducted by the IIT Roorkee. The GATE 2017 Exam is scheduled to be held from 4th
**February to 12th February, 2017**. - The GATE 2017 result is expected to be declared on 27th
**March 2017**. - If you are preparing for GATE 2017, then you will have to make a note of all the GATE 2017 Important Topics for preparation.
- The GATE 2017 Exam will be conducted online in multiple sessions, each having multiple sets of question papers, so it is difficult to say with 100% surety as to which topics are
- General Ability and Engineering Mathematics are the more important sections as together these two subjects together will be having a 30 per cent weight-age in GATE.
- Further, scoring in these two topics is a bit easier as compared to other sections.
