Are you searching for some prep materials on BPCL Management Trainee Written Exam - the sample papers & books? Well, let me tell you - the study materials available online for BPCL MT Exam is very less and you might have been disappointed by now!
Since the materials available on net for the BPCL exam is very less, we can take an alternate route - find the sample papers & books for exams very similar to the that of BPCL - like for instance the IOCL, HPCL exams and also NTPC Executive Trainee exam. All these are public sector industries and the format of the written exam is very similar, if not identical!
At first let us begin our search for preparation materials for BPCL exam by knowing the process of selection for BPCL Management Trainee.
BPCL MT Selection process:
Selections for BPCL MT consists of a Written test, followed by GD & Interview just like selections for Graduate Engineer/Management Trainees in other PSU like HPCL, NTPC etc.
BPCL has not said much on what would be the pattern of its recruitment exam, neither marks allotted or duration of the exam. It has however said that the written test would consist of objective multiple-choice questions in two parts:
Part I – General Aptitude Test.
Part II – Technical/Professional Knowledge Test.
While the questions of Aptitude test is common, questions of the Technical test would depend on which among the five disciplines (Electrical, Mechanical, Computer Science, Fire Engineering or Human Resources) you belong to.
However, a very similar exam in NTPC for Executive Trainees consists of 55 questions in Technical test & 35 in Aptitude – so a total of 90 multiple-choice questions, which needs to be answered in 2 hours. Thus you have 1 min. 20 seconds aprox. to answer each question – the questions as such are not difficult and therefore your main focus would be to answer the questions correctly.
Notes of caution: There is negative marking: 1/4th mark will be deducted for each wrong answer. So if you make a guess, make it wisely!
For Aptitude test the questions asked are of type: Synonyms, Antonyms, Comprehension passages, Word analogies, Fill in the sentences with the most suitable word, Aptitude problem solving skills (train probs, loss profit sums, ratios, etc.).
Mind you, above pattern is the NTPC Executive Trainee exam pattern (for Electrical, Mechanical, Civil, Control & Instrumentation, Human Resources & Finance) and naturally you would find some difference in BPCL written exam. But however, you can base your preparation on the same.
Sample/model/previous years paper of BPCL written test:
I scouted for those papers on the net and could not find any paper specific to BPCL MT test. But however following sample/previous years papers of NTPC ET test may be helpful:
All the above papers should be used with a pinch of salt – I found many of them repeated in more than one website and also, for the technical test, where as you can find test papers of Electrical, Mechanical & Electronics were abundant, but papers of other streams is not available.
Therefore, you can use the following books as preparatory material for the BPCL MT Exam.
