BCECE Exam Prepartions FAQ
1) What is the eligibility criteria for BCECE?
 As qualifying exam for BCECE 2017, candidates must have passed their 10+2 or equivalent with minimum of 45% of marks (40% for SC/ST) from any recognized Board/University.
 They must have studied subjects Physics, Chemistry Mathematics/Biology as primary subjects in their 10+2 or equivalent.
2) What is the paper pattern of BCECE?
 BCECE will be conducted in two stages.
 First stage of the exam will be of 2 hours and 15 minutes duration. In stage 1 of BCECE , a total of 150 questions will be asked from Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics (50 questions from each subject).
 While, attempting questions during the exam, candidates must mark answers very carefully to avoid negative marking. Each correctly marked answers will be awarded 4 marks but for every wrong answer, 1 mark will be deducted. Total marks for stage 1 of BCECE exam will be 600.
 In stage 2 of BCECE, separate exams will be conducted for the three subjects: Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. There will be 100 questions in each question paper and the total marks for a subject/paper will be 400 (4 marks per question). Each paper of stage 2 will be of 90 minutes and there will be a gap of 30 minutes between two consecutive papers.
 For every answer marked correctly in stage 2 of BCECE exam, 4 marks will be awarded and for every wrong answer 1 mark will be deducted. Total marks for stage 2 exam will be 1200.
3) Will there be any negative marking in both the stages of BCECE?
Yes, there will be negative marking of 1 mark for each wrong answer.
4) My board doesn't give aggregate marks for 12th exam. What marks should I enter?
 For CBSE, include PCM and English/Hindi and one additional elective (total five subjects) in your aggregate. For ISCE, include PCM and English in the aggregate.
 Others should calculate the aggregate marks (or its equivalent) and attach a note explaining the method used by them to calculate the aggregate.
5) While entering the 12th exam marks, should I include the practical marks also? Can I include 11th and 12th year marks?
The subjectwise and aggregate marks are to be given for the 12th year examination only. Don't include the 11th year exam marks. For practical marks, use the method used by your board to calculate the subjectwise marks.
6) I have taken Physics, Chemistry and Biology in 10+2.Am I Eligible to Apply for BCECE?
Candidates can write BCECE with Physics, Chemistry and Biology in 10+2.However they will be eligible to apply for the B. Pharm program. They will also eligible for any other first degree program of institute.
7) I passed 12th in 2016. I didn't get 75% aggregate in PCM .Am I eligible if I repeat some of the subjects to get the required 75% marks?
If you are repeating 12th exam, you should do it for the all the subjects as required by the board to pass 12th again. If you take improvement exams in PCM/PCB only, you are not eligible.
8) I have obtained 74.6% in PCM aggregate. Will you consider it as 75%?
No. We need a minimum of 75.00% or more in PCM aggregate.
