ECAT is as equally important for engineering students as MCAT is important for medical students. Therefore, to clear any confusion in minds of Tabir blog readers related to ECAT, we have this blog here. Following are the most frequently asked questions in regards to ECAT:
Students can apply for ECAT either online by filling in the form provided on the website of UET or they can visit the offices of the university.
The syllabus of ECAT includes all the syllabus of F.Sc and A-Levels from HSSC books. The syllabus for the subject English varies from university to university though.
The format of ECAT is Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) based. The total number of questions is 100. The division of MCQs for each subject is as follows:
The total time allowed for ECAT is 100 minutes or 1 hour and 40 minutes. You have roughly one minute to solve each question.
The answer to this question is YES. There is a negative marking of -1 for each incorrect answer.
Following are the essential documents that candidates need to submit along with the application form:
The eligibility criterion is that the candidate should have passed the Intermediate Examination in the Science Group of Pre-Engineering. The passing marks should not be less than 60% which is 660 out of 1100.
The ECAT is valid only for that current year or session. The result is considered null after that year.
ECAT is conducted only once a year.
No, ECAT can be given multiple times but only once a year just like the MCAT.
ECAT is conducted in almost all big cities of Pakistan. Students are advised to give the ECAT in their nearest center so they can reach at least one hour prior to the exam. Following are the several centers for ECAT conduction:
An attested copy of the Resident Visa of the candidate’s parent or guardian, by the Pakistani Embassy of that country and Employment Certificate (on Form-VIII) issued by the Pakistani Embassy, of the parent or guardian residing in a foreign country. The Form-VIII is downloadable from the official website or office of the University of Engineering.
It is a four-year degree program.
The key to passing ECAT is to focus on the concepts. Rote learning is not going to work for the entry test as it is MCQs based. The students would have to modify their preparation methods. They should focus on their textbooks and practice regularly from past papers. Time management practice is essential to pass the test.
