Last Modified: 12 Aug 2022

The Uttar Pradesh State Entrance Examination (UPSEE) comprises of eight papers. Out of the eight papers, UPSEE Paper-5 is conducted for the lateral entry in the B.Tech. and MCA courses. Lateral entry means direct admission to the 2nd year of the course. Here are the details on who can take admission through the lateral entry:

  • Engineering diploma holders/B.Sc. graduates with Mathematics are eligible for admission to the 2nd year of B.Tech.
  • BCA graduates/B.Sc. Information Technology/Computer Science candidates are eligible for admission to the 2nd year of MCA.

Make sure you meet the eligibility criteria before filling the application form. The article here focuses on the syllabus of the Paper-5. Candidates can check out the pattern and topics of the Paper-5 for preparation of the entrance exam.
