Is cracking BITSAT a child’s play after qualifying IIT JEE?
Engineering aspirants vying for a seat in prestigious institutes take the elite exams of IIT JEE and BITSAT. While those eyeing the premier IITs have to take the IIT JEE, BITSAT entitles an entry into the top-notch BITS Pilani and its campuses. Most of the aspirants attempt both the IIT entrance exam and BITS Pilani entrance exam.
Are you also one of those engineering applicants who leave no stone upturned for getting into the top notch institutes? Which one do you think is simple to crack- IIT JEE or BITSAT? Well, there is no definite answer to this question. While some people think JEE is the toughest, there are others belonging to not so reputed boards who find it difficult to crack BITSAT. We discuss these exams in detail one by one to see which one is simpler to crack and for whom.
IIT JEE, as we know is the most challenging of all engineering entrances. It tests the knowledge of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. Thus those, who have their command over these subjects are the best placed.
The case of BITSAT is quite different. In addition to Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, BITSAT has sections on Logical Reasoning and English Proficiency as well. Moreover, the questions in BITSAT are based on fundamental concepts. Thus those from reputed boards like CBSE, ISC and other major state boards are the favored lot. BITSAT is not very tough but cracking it is no child’s play. Those who belong to UP boards or don’t have a good background of English are the worst hit. Good command over the language along with strong conceptual base from NCERTs can facilitate your journey of BITSAT. Thus, in order to crack BITSAT, you need to focus on English as well as aptitude in addition to Physics, Chemistry and Math.
Hence, by now it is clear that there is no thumb rule regarding which one of the two is simple. But, yes if you are from CBSE board with good background of English and with clear concepts then you can easily ace BITSAT. Though, in that case also due to mounting competition you need to have a high level of accuracy and speed.
And for those who have already cracked IIT JEE, though BITSAT cannot be called as a cakewalk but yes you can get through it with a bit of focus and determination. It is often witnessed that those who are able to crack JEE at times fail to get through BITSAT. Hence, don’t ever underestimate these national level exams!
