The effects of random distribution of coordination numbers are investigated for the mixed spin-1/2 and spin-2 Blume-Capel model on the Bethe lattice in terms of exact recursion relations. The usual coordination numbers, i.e. q = 3, 4 and 6, corresponding to the honeycomb, square and simple cubic lattices, respectively, are considered. Two different q values are taken as couples and are varied randomly in terms of a standard-random approach on the shells of the Bethe lattice with some probabilities. It is found that the model gives either first- or second-order phase transitions for appropriate values of probability (p) and single ion anisotropy (d). One or two tricritical points are also observed depending on the given values of p and d, respectively.
