Every year thousands of Nepali students who have completed their 10+2 or equivalents compete in the entrance exam to pursue Bachelor of Engineering (BE) and Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch) programs in Institute of Engineering (IOE), Tribhuvan University.

The entrance exam applications are generally announced on July and the exam is generally held in the month of August.

- According to the syllabus published by the IOE Entrance Exam Board the computer-based entrance exam will be two hours long and cover subjects such as English, Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry.
**There will be a deduction of 10% marks for wrong answers.**- Four possible answers (options) will be provided with each question on the computer monitor.
- The examinee must click on the correct answer to each question using a computer mouse. The use of the keyboard is not allowed.
- Once an option is clicked, it is possible to change to another option, but you can not leave it unattended. If you do not want to answer the given question, then leave the question without clicking on any options.
