GATE BIOTECHNOLOGY (BT) paper consists of basically 3 sections:
  • Mathematics
  • Biotechnology
  • General Aptitude
(All three are compulsory)

Pattern of Question Papers (Biotechnology)
There will be a total of 65 questions carrying 100 marks.

Q.1 to Q.25 (25 questions) will carry one mark each (sub-total 25 marks). Q.26 to Q.55 (30 questions) will carry two marks each (sub-total 60 marks). Questions Q.56 - Q.65 belong to General Aptitude (GA). Questions Q.56 - Q.60 will carry 1 mark each (sub-total 5 marks) and questions Q.61 - Q.65 will carry 2-marks each (sub-total 10 marks).

Q.48 - Q.51 (2 pairs) are common data questions and question pairs (Q.52, Q.53) and (Q.54, Q.55) are linked answer questions. The answer to the second question of the linked answer questions depends on the answer to the first question of the pair. If the first question in the linked pair is wrongly answered or is un-attempted, then the answer to the second question in the pair will not be evaluated.

For Q.1 - Q.25 and Q.56 - Q.60, 1/3 mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. For Q.26 - Q.51 and Q.61 - Q.65, 1/2 mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. The question pairs (Q.52, Q.53), and (Q.54, Q.55) are questions with linked answers. There will be negative marks only for wrong answer to the first question of the linked answer question pair i.e. for Q.52 and Q.54, 2/3mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. There is no negative marking for Q.53 and Q.55.

(GATE Biotechnology paper will also contain questions on Engineering Mathematics carrying 15 marks)
