Q. Since BCECE Exam pattern has changed. Will syllabus also change with it?
Ans. The BCECE 2020 Syllabus has already been given along with the notification. As per our observation, there are no major changes. The weightage may slightly vary for topics covered but the questions will be covered from class 11 and class 12 syllabi only.
Q. What will be the weightage of Motion chapter in BCECE 2020?
Ans. The laws of motion topic covered almost 7% of the total weightage of physics section. So we can expect similar weightage this year likewise. However, you must consider studying other topics thoroughly as well.
Q. Please suggest some good books to prepare for mathematics section in BCECE.
Ans. You can prepare for Mathematics section in BCECE 2020 from your class 11 and class 12 NCERT Books. Apart from it, you can refer to Higher Algebra from Hall and Knight and A Problem Book in Mathematical Analysis by GN Berman.
Q. I want to improve my hand at Chemical Calculations. What do I do?
Ans. You can take help from reference books such as Modern Approach to Chemical Calculations by R.C. Mukherjee.
