BCECE Exam Pattern:
Total BCECE entrance test duration will be of three hours consisting of questions from Physics, Chemistry, and Maths/ Biology of 1 hour duration each. The questions in the BCECE exam are based on the subjects of HSC (10+2) examination. Candidates appearing for engineering programs have to study for all the theories and basics of subjects i.e. Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, along with Biology. Besides, those who wish to take admission in Medical and Agricultural programs, have to study Physics, Chemistry and Biology along with Mathematics of the qualifying examination. The medium of BCECE admission test is in English only.
To increase the success rate in Bihar state engineering entrance exam, go through BCECEB paper pattern.
