The effects of the bimodal bilinear exchange interaction, J model, are investigated for the mixed-spin 1/ 2 and 3/2 Blume Capel (BC) model on the Bethe lattice (BL). The bilinear exchange interaction is either turned on ferrimagnetically Q> 0) or turned off antiferrimagnetically U < 0) with probabilities p and 1- p for the nearest-neighbor sites on the BL. The phase diagrams of the model are obtained with the inclusion of the crystal field interactions on the sites of spin-3/2 for the coordination number, q=3,4 and 6, for given p values. It was found that the model gives either second- or first-order phase transition lines for each given value of p. The temperatures of these lines increase with the increasing values of q.
