The Birla Institute of Technology and Science BITS Pilani, which is deemed to be a university, is an all – India Institute for Higher Education for men and women. The test conducted by BITS Pilani is BITS Admission Test in short BITSAT.
There are two campuses of BITS located in Pilani and Goa. Paper consists of four part , Mathematics Physics, Chemistry, English Proficiency and Logical reasoning.
For the practice of multiple choice questions in such categories, students need to take a look in past year papers for BITSAT and their solutions. There are basically 150 questions in total as displayed in Previous Year questions of 2009, 2008, 2007, and 2006 below. These Multiple choice last year papers give an idea of the questions asked from different categories and in-turn help them to prepare for BITSAT entrance test.
There is no paper based test but Computer Based Online test. It means the candidate sits in front of a computer and the questions are presented on the computer monitor and the candidate answers the questions on the computer through keyboard or mouse. Each computer is connected to a server, which prepares the question set and delivers it to the candidate on the computer.
The candidate can choose the Center, the Day and Time of his/her convenience to take the test.
Format of the test:
BITSAT is of total 3-hour duration (without break). The test consists of four parts:
Part I : Physics
Part II : Chemistry
Part III : (a) English Proficiency and (b) Logical Reasoning
Part IV : Mathematics
All questions are of objective type (multiple choice questions); each question with choice of four answers, only one being correct choice. Each correct answer fetches 3 marks, while each incorrect answer has a penalty of 1 mark (-1mark).
No marks are awarded for questions not attempted. While the candidate can skip a question, the computer will not allow the candidate to choose more than one option as correct answer. There will be 150 questions in all. The number of questions in each part is as follows:
||No of questions
||(a) English Proficiency
(b) Logical Reasoning
There is no time limit for individual parts of the test. The candidate can skim through the sections and change any of his/her answers among the 150 questions.
If a candidate answers all the 150 questions, without skipping any question, the candidate will have an option of attempting 12 (twelve) extra questions, if there is still time left. These extra questions will be from Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics only; four questions from each part. Further, once the candidate has opted for extra questions, he cannot go back for correction of any of the earlier answered 150 questions.
The questions are so designed that a good student will be able to answer 150 questions in 180 minutes. The extra questions (a maximum of 12) will give a chance to highly meritorious candidates to score higher. However, candidates should keep in mind the fact that there is negative marking for wrong answers and any attempt to answer the questions by pure guessing of the answers is not likely to have any advantage, but may result in a reduction in the total score.
The questions will be selected at random from a large question bank. Different candidates will get different question sets. An expert committee will ensure that the question sets are of comparable difficulty level, content, question type etc. In this matter, the decision of the expert committee will be final and binding on the candidate.
The medium of questions and instructions of BITSAT will be in English only. Candidates should bring a pen for rough work, signing etc. Blank sheets for rough work will be provided, if required. Calculators and logarithmic tables are not allowed in the test centers. Candidates are not allowed to bring any other personal belongings such as mobiles.
Each candidate who registers for BITSAT will be instructed to download a ‘Hall Ticket’. Candidates with the hall ticket only will be allowed inside the Test centers. All centers are closely monitored for security and candidates’ identity and activities will be recorded using web cameras and/or closed circuit TV cameras. Candidate’s finger print and photograph will be taken at the time of the test and will be matched at the time of admission. Anyone violating the rules of the test center will not be allowed to continue with the test and will automatically be disqualified.
BITSAT – Score Report & Merit List
As and when a candidate completes the test, the computer announces the result to the candidate in terms of number of total correct answers and wrong answers, with the score. The candidate can also check and print score report at the BITS website after all the tests are completed. No student is allowed to repeat the test in the same year.
Merit List for Admission
All candidates who have appeared in BITSAT and are interested in admission will be required to submit Admission application with 12th marks and preferences to different degree programmes offered, on or before a particular date as per notified by BITS authorities. The details of this will be available on the BITS website.
The merit position of eligible candidates (those who have appeared in BITSAT and who have submitted the application for admission in the prescribed form with 12th marks, preferences and the required fees) is prepared on the basis of their scores.
When the score of two candidates are the same, then
First their scores obtained in Mathematics in BITSAT will be considered for separating them,
If the tie still exists, then their scores in Physics in BITSAT will be considered for separating them.
If the tie still exists, their scores in Chemistry will be considered.
If there are further ties, their PCM total marks in 12th examination will be considered for their separation.
