UKSEE Exam 2020 Pattern & Syllabus

UKSEE exam is conducted for nine papers. Candidates are required to appear for different papers as per the courses they are interested in. As we are discussing the B.Tech. admission in this article, we will be discussing the exam pattern for the same. For admission to B.Tech. course candidates have to appear for the following papers:

  • Admission to B.Tech first year - JEE Main
  • Admission to B.Tech second year (Engineering Diploma holders) - Paper 6
  • Admission to B.Tech second year (B.Sc. Degree holders) - Paper 8

Check out our JEE Main page for information on the exam. And, for exam pattern for lateral entry, check out the table below. The exam pattern for both the papers (Paper-6 and Paper-8) is the same. The only difference is in the syllabus.
