About the exam
The BITSAT is an entrance exam for admissions in B. Tech programs at the various campuses (Pilani, Hyderabad, Goa, and Dubai) of the Birla Institute of Technology.
The exam (BITSAT) conducted by the Birla Institute of Technology is one of the most sought-after engineering exams in the country after the Joint Engineering Examination (JEE). Around 3 lakh aspirants attempt the coveted exam every year.
The pattern of the exam
BITSAT is a 3-hour long online examination and aspirants will be tested in the following subjects:
- English Proficiency
- Logical Reasoning
A total number of 150 questions has to be attempted by an aspirant, which carries a total of 450 marks. Each question carries a negative mark of -1 for every wrong attempt.
Why attempt BITSAT?
The most sought-after engineering entrance exam in the country is JEE, but not all can crack it. BITSAT is usually the go-to exam for engineering aspirants after JEE. Why? Because of the following reasons:
- The Birla Institute of Technology is one of the top engineering institutes in the country with good placement records. Also, pundits feel that the level of difficulty of BITSAT exam is somewhat lesser when compared to JEE.
- The number of students (11 Lakhs) attempting JEE is considerably higher than students (3 Lakhs) attempting BITSAT and hence competition is less.
- Board toppers are eligible for direct admissions.
- The toppers of the examination are eligible for scholarships as well. If a candidate manages to score 300 out of 450, then they are eligible to get a waiver up to 75% of the course fees. Likewise, candidates scoring between 250 to 299 are eligible for a waiver up 50% and candidates scoring between 200 to 249 are eligible for a waiver up 25% of the course fees.
- The candidates are given extra 12 questions (from PCM section) to attempt within the stipulated time of the exam to boost their score and enhance their chance of admissions in Birla Institute of Technology.
How to prepare for the exam?
Though it is frowned upon that BITSAT is a tad bit easier than JEE, it is by no means easier to crack. The preparation strategy for BITSAT is very similar to JEE, which begins with NCERT and finishes with taking mock tests and revisions. The only added sections in BITSAT, when compared to JEE, is English and Logical reasoning.
Aspirants usually take JEE mock tests to prepare for BITSAT, but myPAT provides dedicated BITSAT mock tests to prepare for the coveted examination.
