BITSAT is a computer based online test conducted every year for admission to the Integrated First Degree Programmes at the Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) Pilani. BITS Pilani is a deemed university with its campus at four places – Pilani, Goa, Hyderabad and Dubai.
Computer based online test implies that the candidate sits in front of a computer and questions are presented on the computer monitor. This is unlike the traditional paper-pencil based test, which is generally offered on a single day to all candidates. The BIT SAT is offered over a period of time and the candidate can choose the center, the day and a time of his/her convenience to take the test.

All questions in this test are objective type questions i.e. each question has a choice among four answers, only one being correct choice. Each correct answer fetches 3 marks, while each incorrect answer has a penalty of 1 mark (-1 mark).  No marks are awarded for questions not attempted. While the candidate can skip a question, the computer does not allow the candidate to choose more than one option as correct answer. There are a total of 150 questions in all.
  • Part 1 :  Physics (40 Marks)
  • Part 2 :  Chemistry(40 Marks)
  • Part 3 :  English Proficiency(15 Marks) & Logical Reasoning(10 Marks)
  • Part 4 :  Mathematics(45 Marks)

Preparation Tips

  • Refer to the prescribed exam syllabus and be sure of not picking any topic beyond it. (Unimportant questions prepared = important time wasted). Revising class 11th and 12th NCERT syllabus is a productive investment of time.
  • Don’t rush into taking mock BIT SATs. One should cover the entire syllabus once and practice from one reference book at least 2 times before attempting the mock tests for BIT SAT.
  • Never miss any formulae. Keep reciting formulae, theorems, equations and constants in the spare time. This will help one get so well versed with formulae that they become a part of his/her sub conscious memory, like a name and/or a mobile number.
  • Candidates are not allowed to use a calculator for solving mathematical questions. It is thus, important to brush up on the calculation skills. Remember multiplicative inverses of each number till 20. For example X/4 = X*0.25. Students can also learn vedic multiplication for BIT SAT.
  • While appearing for the BIT SAT exam, one should ideally begin with the section that he/she is most confident about.
  • The objective type questions that appear in the BIT SAT test require applications of formulae, and involve logic that one has learnt up to his 11th and 12th standard.
  • As there is a negative marking of 1 marks for every incorrect answer, try to avoid wild guessing. Remove the option which is least likely to be correct. Eliminating the least likely ones will help you reduce the risk factor a great deal.
  • Time management can help to succeed in BIT SAT. Allocate a specific time to every section and try to complete the section within that time frame.
