Bihar Combined Entrance Competitive Exam (BCECE)-B.Tech Exam Pattern

Exam Pattern

Bihar Combined Entrance Competitive Exam (BCECE) will be conducted in two stages.

  • All the eligible candidates will be asked to appear in the first stage, i.e., the qualifying paper of the exam.

  • Further, only those who will qualify this first stage of the exam will be called to appear in the second stage of the exam.

  • The question papers of both the stages will be of 10+2 level and will carry questions in the English language.

  • Each question will have its Hindi version as well.

  • Both the question paper will carry objective type questions only.?

BCECE Stage I

The BCECE Exam pattern for stage I exam is as follows:

  • The first stage exam is expected to be conducted in the month of April .

  • The whole exam will carry 600 marks in total, with a time limit of 02 hours and 15 minutes.

  • Moreover, each section will carry 200 marks. In this qualifying exam, there will be only three sections which are as follows-

1. Maths
2. Chemistry
3. Physics

Total Marks- 200+200+200= 600

Test duration- 02.15 hours

Total Questions- 300

Marking System – Each section will carry equal marks, which will be 200 marks. Candidates have to compulsory attempt for Physics and Chemistry. If you are opting for engineering, then you need to attempt Maths section too.

BCECE Stage II

The second stage of the BCECE will be conducted in the month of May .

  • As per the exam pattern of BCECE , again there will be three sections as mentioned above.

  • Each section will carry 400 marks with a time limit of 1.5 hours each.

  • All the questions will be of Multiple choice type and each question will carry 4 marks each.

  • There will be 100 questions in each subject and the candidates opting for engineering will have to attempt Mathematics section along with the compulsory sections,i.e. Physics and Chemistry.


Test duration- 1.15 Hours for each septate section

Total Marks- 400+400+400= 1200

Total Questions- 300

Marking System – As per the BCECE  marking scheme the candidates will be awarded four marks each for marking correct answer and one mark will be deducted for every wrong answer.

How to prepare

Preparation Strategy

Make a proper Time Table

It is very important that you make a time table and stick to it and you will have an exact idea of what you are required to study and the time required for it.

Concept clarity rather than rote learning

It is essential that you have a clear idea of the formulas and concepts rather than rote learning of things for the papers. While you might require it for memorizing formulas it is important that for other stuff you make sure you clear your basis and concepts before moving on.

Prepare Notes

It is very important make small notes or a comprehensive list of formulas on each covered topic and chapter which will come in handy at the time of revision. This will require you to be regular with your work but will surely make things easy at the time of revision.

Revision of Class XI and XII concepts

Make sure that you revise your concepts from the syllabus of these classes before starting anything new as most of the engineering exams will be for admission to undergraduate courses and so the syllabi from class XI and XII becomes the testing ground to check students.

Seek guidance

It is not possible for you to know everything in your syllabus, at least not at the time of preparation. Sooner or later you will run into a concept or so which will give you trouble and then it is best you seek guidance from an instructor or a teacher. It is necessary that you clear your doubts at regular intervals and don’t prolong things for long. Getting into a good coaching class is nothing to be ashamed off and if anything a regular coaching class will enable you to avoid roadblocks in your preparation.

Sample Papers

Even though there may be a complete change in the exam pattern or the expected questions altogether,it is important that you practice on the sample and previous years question papers available for the engineering exam you’d be attempting. You will know the existing pattern and have a fair idea of the type of questions to expect in the paper along with the time constraint.

Mock tests

The paper pattern, duration of the paper and the number of questions to be attempted in the given amount of time is not something you will be able to pick up on the day of the examination. A Mock Test tests a student’s abilities as it not only provides a similar feel of real exams but also helps in building speed and confident to face the exam. Furthermore, they can improve their performance to get an extra edge in actual exams. Try to build up an Engineering Entrance Exam Test Prep MCQ Question Bank

Time management

Time management can be learnt through thorough practice and regular test taking. So it is important that you practice it and practice it well.

Negative marking

Most the entrance examinations will have negative marking and everyone would suggest you stay clear of questions are not sure about. But some experts are of the opinion that you answer the questions in which you are confused between an option or two because there will also be a chance of getting it right.

Duration : 135 Minutes

Important Instructions

The provision of this reservation will be applicable in government as well as non-government aided institutions. The candidates, who are aspiring to get seats under Disabled Quota, should apply expressing their claims for the same along with the valid disability certificate. The candidate, seeking the benefit for reservation under Disabled Quota, should present him/herself before a medical board comprising of atleast one expert / specialist from the speciality of orthopaedics from state medical board in the state of Bihar and obtain a valid disability certificate from the medical board by claiming the benefit of reservation. The disability certificate of the candidate from a medical board shall (i) Give a permanent disability certificate where there are no chances of variation in the degree of disability (ii) Indicate the period of validity in the certificate, in cases where there is any chance of variation in the degree of disability. In case, there are not enough number of Candidates, who qualify themselves for admission against reserved seats under Disabled Quota of any category, the consequent vacant seats should be merged with the seats of respective category.
