IIITH PGEE Paper Pattern

The examination is conducted in two parts i.e.

Exams Time
Paper 1 General aptitude test and will have MCQs to test a candidate’s aptitude, logical reasoning, basic computers, and Mathematics. 1-1/2 Hr.
Paper 2 Subjective and the candidates will be asked questions from the subject in which he/she wants to apply. 1-1/2 Hr.


The entrance examination consists of two papers:

1. Paper I (General Aptitude) Objective
1- 1/2 hours (Compulsory for everyone).
This is an objective type question paper and will emphasize basic aptitude, logical reasoning, basic questions on computers and mathematics.

Important: A minimum cut-off score in this paper is compulsory for the evaluation of the candidate’s subject paper (Paper-II).

2. Paper-II: Subject Paper.
Based on the graduation, the candidate has to appear for relevant subject papers i.e

A. Mathematics: Duration: 1- 1/2 hours
Elementary Graph Theory, Set Theory, Probability and Statistics, Combinatorics, Matrices, Complex Variables, Differential Equations, Numerical Methods, Basic number theory.

B. Computer Science: Duration: 1-1/2 hours
Fundamental Programming Concepts, Control Flow, Functions, Recursion, Basic Data Structures (arrays, lists, stacks, and queues), Basic algorithms (sorting and searching), Boolean Algebra, Digital Building Blocks (AND/OR/NAND/XOR Gates), Karnaugh’s Maps, Computer Organization, Number Systems. The capability to write programs in C or C++ is expected.

C. Electronics and Communications Engineering: Duration: 1-1/2 hours 
Selection for an interview for the streams

  • VLSI & Embedded Systems and
  • Communication Systems and Signal Processing will be based on the score in this paper and the score in the general aptitude test.

This examination paper is divided into two parts: Part A (Electronics) and Part B (Signal Processing and Communication). The individual score in PART A will have more weightage for selection into the stream `VLSI & Embedded Systems’. Similarly, the individual score in PART B will have more weight-age for selection into the stream `Communication Systems and Signal Processing’. )

Part A: Electronics

  • Network Theory, Analog Devices (Diodes, BJTs), OPAMPs and Basic Analog Circuits. Boolean Algebra, Digital Building Blocks (Gates, Flip-Flops) Digital Circuit Design. Signals, Systems, Filters, Transformations, Modulation, VLSI fundamentals.

Part B: Signal Processing and Communications

  • Fundamentals of probability and random processes: random variables, discrete and continuous random variables, cumulative distribution function, probability mass function and probability density function, conditional probability, Bay’s theorem, independent and uncorrelated random variables, random processes, discrete-time and continuous-time random processes, auto-correlation and cross-correlation functions, power spectrum.
  • Fundamentals of Linear Algebra: vectors, matrices, determinants, basis, Eigenvector and Eigenvalue, canonical forms, characteristic and minimal polynomial.
  • Fundamentals of information theory: the measure of information, mutual information, entropy, capacity, lossless source coding schemes like Huffman code, run-length code, etc., delta modulation.
  • Signal Processing: Fourier series, Fourier transform, discrete-time Fourier series and Fourier transform, discrete Fourier transform, FFT, z-transform, Properties of the above transforms, LTI systems, stability of LTI systems, IIR and FIR filters.
