Admission Requirements in BE in Electronics and Communication Engineering

Students who are willing to pursue electronics and communication in Bachelor degree must to meet the following criteria:

  • The interested candidates must have to obtain minimum of 45% marks in Intermediate of Science (I. SC.) or must have to complete plus two in Science stream or In A- Level with full paper of two hundred marks mathematics or diploma in engineering or any equivalent courses from any board or university  recognized by Tribhuvan University are suitable for entrance.
  • After the entrance exam, when the result is published students get admission as per merit list. Merit list is totally based on the entrance exam marks where marks of plus two is not added. Even the interview does not take place.

Entrance Exam:

Pulchowk Campus, the authorized institution of Tribhuvan University is responsible for entrance examination. Questions are asked in five different fields comprising English, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Engineering Aptitude. Total marks for this entrance is 140 and 100 questions are must have to be attempted with time division of 2 hours where all the questions are objective based. Students have to sit near the computer provided to them and appear in the exam by following imposed rules and regulations.10% marks of the given question will be deducted for wrong answers. The total 140 marks are allotted in the different subjects in the following basis:  for English: 22 marks, for Physics: 40 marks, for Chemistry: 20 marks, for Mathematics: 40 marks and for Engineering Aptitude: 18 marks. 

Bridge Course:

To compete with more than 10,000 equally deserving candidates is a very challenging and tough task indeed and it’s definitely a herculean work to do. After appearing the board exams of grade 12, students will have about three to four months left for preparation of entrance exam. In this very short period of time, students have to prepare everything for the entrance exam. Students will be in a great dilemma and some students’ even fall in excessive stress on how to prepare and what to prepare as the course is very vast and too complicated.

So, to anticipate this kind of problem, there are certain institutes who are trying their best to help the students prepare for their entrance exam. This entrance preparing institutes charge RS. 15,000 to Rs. 18,000 per student for three to four months course where students are given various books and materials helpful for entrance preparation. Teachers also provide various shortcut ideas and techniques, which helps to boost the confidence of students. The institutes like PEA, NAEE and KEI are providing BECE preparation courses in Kathmandu valley.
