Taking the test on the BCFM's automated testing system is very simple. On punching the registration number, the system generates a question paper consisting of questions selected randomly from a vast question bank. The system ensures that although the candidates get different questions in a question paper, the same level of difficulty is maintained for each of them. The questions are followed by four probable answers. The correct alternative needs to be indicated by a click of the mouse. The time remaining to complete the paper is constantly displayed on the top right-hand corner. Once the candidate completes answering the question paper, he submits the same for evaluation. The answers are evaluated immediately and the marks are provided to him on the spot by the system.
Time duration for the modules are as under:
BCDE: 120 minutes
BCSM: 90 minutes
BCCD: 90 minutes
There is a provision of negative marking for incorrect answers:
BCDE >> 0.33 marks
BCSM >> 0.25 marks
BCCD >> 0.25 marks
The method of answering questions is shown here with an example :
Q: How is BSE incorporated?
b. Association of Persons
d. Partnership Firm
If you think that alternative 'c' is the correct answer to this question, then select 'c'. You can also edit your answer by selecting another alternative.
