HOW TO PREPARE
BITS is a private college and an expensive college only a few students can afford this, so competition is not so huge as compared to other entrance examinations. But the number of questions in BITSAT is 150 which is to be solved in 180 minutes, so this makes it a challenging exam. In addition, there is also negative marking involved, so no one can fluke and score well.
Proper preparation is required to handle these types of questions in the allotted time. During all these years, I have always advised my students to practice from Arihant Publication Book , which is also the best selling book for BITSAT.
It covers chapter-wise questions as well as mock test. Without proper guidance and preparation, there is no way anyone can excel in competitive exams.
Exam is conducted in 2 slots: morning slot– 9 a.m. to 12 a.m.and afternoon slot 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Candidate may choose slot subject to availability.
- Candidate should obtain a minimum of 75% marks in PCM/PCB in Class 12 examination with at least 60% marks in Physics, Chemistry, Maths/Biology subject.
