    sir, i am a student of B-Tech 1st year, i want to ask u that is there any boundation to attempt one question from each section or we hv to attempt 4 ques in all except the 1st . sir pls reply me soon .
    regards :- Nitish

    Hi Nitish,

    Thanks for Commenting on Engineering Tutorials Website. This course (BME) is introduced first time in MDU, Earlier, it was EME (Elements of Mechanical Engineering). So I am Telling you the pattern according to Previous EME Syllabus. In MDU Exam Papers, there are two Possibilities,

    One Possibility:
    One Question from each unit Say, if the syllabus has 8 units than there would be one question from each unit. and you have to attempt any 5 of them. Each question carry 20 marks.

    Possibility Two:
    Same one question from each unit, But the whole question paper would be divided into 2 Sections of 4 questions each, One Section from the first half of syllabus and second from the other half, And you have to answer 5 questions, At least two from each section.

    I think this would resolve your Query, If you have doubts further, feel free to mail us or comment on any post on Engineering Tutorials.

    We would always be here to resolve your queries, Please spread the word in your friends and Class.

    Thanks and Regards
