**About GATE**

**Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE)** is an examination that primarily tests the comprehensive understanding of the candidates in various undergraduate subjects in Engineering/Technology/Architecture and post-graduate level subjects in Science. The GATE score of a candidate reflects a relative performance level in a particular subject in the examination across several years.

### About GATE Chemical Engineering

**Chemical engineering** is a branch of **engineering** that applies physical sciences (physics and **chemistry**), life sciences (microbiology and biochemistry), together with applied mathematics and economics to produce, transform, transport, and properly use **chemicals**, materials and energy.

**General Aptitude – GATE Syllabus 2018**

General Aptitude (GA) section is common to all the papers. The General Aptitude section is designed to test your language, analytical and quantitative skills. For full details about General Aptitude Syllabus Click on General Aptitude Syllabus
