How to Get Admission in UET and Other Engineering Universities of KPK

To get admission in UET Peshawar and other public sector engineering universities of KPK students have to appear in entry test known as ETEA Engineering.

What is ETEA?

Educational Testing and Evaluation Agency commonly known as ETEA is an educational organization established in 1998 by Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhawa (KPK). ETEA is a public sector organization and works inside the boundaries of Khyber Pakhtunkhawa. The main aim of establishing ETEA (Educational Testing and Evaluation Agency) is to get administration of Entrance test for public sector Engineering Universities and medical colleges of KPK. ETEA is playing an important role in the development of education sector in KPK. ETEA conduct entry test for all public sector universities of KPK province. ETEA also conduct test for jobs available in different public and private sector originations in KPK. ETEA offers scholarships and free education to bright students of different classes. To get admission in UET Peshawar and other Public sector engineering universities of KPK appearance in ETEA engineering test is mandatory.

Type of ETEA Test for Undergraduate Students


ETEA- Engineering: ETEA conduct test for Public sector Engineering Universities of Khyber Pakhtunkhawa (KPK) for BS and BSC programs. This test is commonly known as ETEA Engineering (ECAT). To get admission in UET Peshawar and other Public sector Engineering Universities for BS and BSC programs appearance in ETEA Engineering test (ECAT) is mandatory.

ETEA- Medical: ETEA also conduct test for Public sector Medical Colleges of Khyber Pakhtunkhawa (KPK) for MBBS and BDS admissions. This test is commonly known as ETEA Medical (MCAT). To get admission in Public sector Medical Colleges for MBBS and BDS admissions appearance in ETEA Medical test (MCAT) is mandatory.

Eligibility Criteria for Undergraduate Admissions for KPK Engineering Universities:

  • Students willing to apply for ETEA Engineering test must have 60% marks in FSC (Pre- Engineering) or equivalent.
  • Students with FSC (ICS) are eligible to apply for Computer System Engineering and Computer Software Engineering programs.
  • Students with A level or other foreign qualification have to submit equivalency certificate issued by IBCC.
  • Students willing to apply on Open Merit seats must have domicile of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK).
  • Students having Diploma in Associate Engineering (DAE) with minimum 60% marks are eligible to apply.
  • ETEA Engineering test is only valid for one session.

ETEA Engineering Test Pattern

Students wiling to get admission in undergraduate engineering programs at UET Peshawar and other affiliated institutes have to appear in ETEA engineering test. ETEA engineering test will consist of 200 MCQ’s type questions from Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry/Computer and English. ETEA engineering test is very competitive and technical and only those students can get admission who scored good marks in entry test. ETEA conduct test for UET Peshawar and other engineering universities of KPK every year. Approximately 30,000+ students appear in ETEA engineering test every year for limited number of seats available. Students with good conceptual knowledge of subjects can get good marks in ETEA engineering test. Here is the detail test pattern of ETEA engineering:

Total Number of MCQ’s: 200

Total Marks: 800

Physics: 60 MCQ’s

Chemistry: 60 MCQ’s

Maths: 60 MCQ’s

English: 20 MCQ’s

How to Calculate ETEA Engineering Test Marks

Students willing to appear in ETEA Engineering test must note that ETEA entry test have negative marking. So keep that in mind while attempting test. Losing marks in ETEA engineering entry test results in failure in getting admission. Each correct answer will add (+4) marks in total. Every wrong answers will deduct (-1) mark from total, unanswered questions will make no effect they will considered as (0).

Example:
ETEA Test Marks = Correct answers Marks x (4) + Wrong Answers x (-1) + Unanswered Questions x (0)
Total number of MCQ’s: 200
Attempted MCQ’s: 160
Correct Answers: 120
Wrong Answers: 40
Un-Answered MCQ’s: 40

for example:
ETEA Test Marks = 120 x 4 + 40 x -1 + 40 x 0
ETEA Test Marks = 480 – 40 +0
ETEA Test Marks = 440
