Change in test pattern for engineering aspirants at SEE-2011

The change in pattern of the state entrance examinations (SEE-2011) in Lucknow for admissions to B.Tech/B.Arch gave students a tough time managing the three sections within the stipulated time frame of three hours.

For the first time, the question paper included multiple choice questions (MCQ), where more than one answer was correct. “Such kind of MCQs were intellectually challenging for the students. To break the comfort level, intricacies of MCQs were included.

For the students, the paper was simple though lengthy. The time management was the biggest problem this time. The calculations in mathematics were longer and hence more time was devoted there. However, three sections in three hours was a mammoth task.

Similarly, Physics and chemistry were simple. There was not much problem with MCQs, as such types of questions are asked in other competitive exams also. The trouble was only, when the section for MCQs was not defined. However, majority of the students found the paper easy except that it was for the first time, when they were appearing for a single slot in SEE.

This year 1.79 lakh candidates took the exam in 27 cities in the state, as compared to 1.70 lakh aspirants, who appeared last year. The number of students skipping the UP State Entrance Examination (SEE) -2011 for admissions to B.Tech/B.Arch has gone down this year. An average of 10% candidates were absent at the examination centre. In previous years, 20% or even more were reported to skip the exam.

Though the number of candidates taking the exam has gone up, as compared to last year, the number of students skipping the exam has shown a considerable decrease. Earlier, students had to appear for two papers, which was tedious. This time, when it was a single paper exam, candidates felt much easier and hence the drop down has come down.
