BCECE, elaborated as Bihar Combined Entrance Competitive Examination is a premier state level entrance examination in the country. BCECE is conducted once in a year, and is the gateway to get admission in Undergraduate courses in Engineering, Medical Sciences, Agriculture and some other fields.
BCECE is held in two stages, Stage I and II. Stage I is actually a qualifying examination for Stage II, the results of which become the basis of admission. To appear in BCECE, a candidate needs to have passed Class 12th in the science stream.
Stream-wise divide in BCECE
Although BCECE is an exam of science field, but it is further divided into specific streams so as to facilitate better evaluation of candidates. These divisions are PCB, PCM and PCMB. PCB stands for Physics, Chemistry and Biology, and this exam is for candidates who are looking to get admission in medical courses. PCM stands for Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, and this exam is mainly for engineering aspirants. On the other hand, PCMB stands for Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Biology, and this exam is for other fields like Agriculture and Pharmacy.
Candidates may appear in respective examinations and get their desired colleges. BCECE is a path to some of the best colleges in Bihar in all concerned fields, and that is why it is the most sought out entrance examination in the state.

What makes these colleges best under BCECE?
There are many reasons that make the above mentioned colleges the best choice of students. First reason is that these colleges are very old, and hold vast amount of experience with them. Continuous serving and research has made these colleges the best in Bihar. Where Patna Medical College and Hospital (PCMH) is continuing its legacy from 1874, the other two colleges, Indira Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (IGIMS) and Anugrah Narayan Magadh Medical College and Hospital (ANMMCH) were established in 1983 and 1969 respectively.
Also, these colleges are amongst the best medical hospitals in state of Bihar and offer a great practical exposure to students. PCMH being the largest, has more than 1800 beds in its hospital and offers treatments for many diseases. IGIMS and ANMMCH are also amongst the busiest hospitals in Bihar and this makes them the preferred place for medical education.
Another important factor is that these colleges keep a very small batch size of students for their undergraduate programs. This increases the amount of care given to each student and also ensures each student is getting the proper amount of guidance needed. Each of these three colleges offer around 100 seats for their MBBS programs.
