About Birla Institute of Technology and Science Aptitude Test (BITSAT)

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)
