Introduction

BITSAT is a Computer Based Online Test for Admissions to all the Integrated First Degree programmes of Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) campuses at Pilani, Goa and Hyderabad. 'Computer Based Online Test' means the candidate sits in front of a computer and the questions are presented on the computer monitor and the candidate submits the answers through the use of keyboard or mouse. Each computer is connected to a server, which prepares the question set and delivers it to the candidate on the computer. This is unlike the traditional paper-pencil based test, which is generally offered on a single day to all candidates.

BITSAT will be offered over a period of approximately one month (May-June) and the candidate can choose the center, the day and time of his/her convenience to take the test.

Programmes

Bachelore of Technology.

Eligibility

Only Students who are appearing for 12th examination in 2014 or who have passed 12
th Examination in 2013 are eligible to appear in the BITSAT-2014 test.

 If a candidate has taken more than one attempt in 12th class or its equivalent, only his latest performance is considered, provided this attempt has been for the full component of subjects/courses prescribed.

Students who have passed 12thexamination in 2012 or earlier are NOT eligible to appear in BITSAT-2014. Students who are presently studying in BITS at any of its campuses are not eligible to appear in BITSAT-2014.


Admissions will be made purely on merit. The merit position of the candidate for admission will be based on the score obtained by the candidate in the BITSAT-2014. However, their eligibility for admission is subject to fulfilling the requirement of minimum marks in 12th examination, as mentioned above.

Examination

BITSAT Test Format: BITSAT will be of total 3-hour duration (without break). The test consists of four parts:

  • Part I : Physics
  • Part II : Chemistry
  • Part III : (a) English Proficiency and (b) Logical Reasoning
  • Part IV : Mathematics
All questions are of objective type (multiple choice questions); each question with choice of four answers, only one being correct choice. Each correct answer fetches 3 marks, while each incorrect answer has a penalty of 1 mark. No marks are awarded for not attempted questions. While the candidate can skip a question, the computer will not allow the candidate to choose more than one option as correct answer. There will be 150 questions in all. The number of questions in each part is as follows:
  • Physics: 40
  • Chemistry: 40
  • English Proficiency: 15
  • Logical Reasoning: 10
  • Mathematics: 45
Total: 150

There is no time limit for individual parts of the test. The candidate can go back and change any of his/her answers among the 150 questions.


If a candidate answers all the 150 questions (without skipping any question), the candidate will have an option of attempting 12 (twelve) extra questions, if there is still time left. These extra questions will be from Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics only; four questions from each part. Further, once the candidate has opted for extra questions, he cannot go back for correction of any of the earlier answered 150 questions.
The questions are so designed that a good student will be able to answer 150 questions in 180 minutes. The extra questions (a maximum of 12) will give a chance to highly meritorious candidates to score higher. However, candidates should keep in mind the fact that there is negative marking for wrong answers and any attempt to answer the questions by pure guessing of the answers is not likely to have any advantage, but may result in a reduction in the total score.
The questions will be selected at random from a large question bank. Different candidates will get different question sets. An expert committee will ensure that the question sets are of comparable difficulty level, content, question type etc. In this matter, the decision of the expert committee will be final and binding on the candidate.
All the questions and instructions of the test will be in English only.
Each candidate who registers for BITSAT will be instructed to download a 'Hall Ticket'. Candidates with the hall ticket only will be allowed inside the test centers. Candidates should bring a pen for the purpose of rough work, signing etc. Blank sheets for rough work will be provided, if required. Calculators and logarithmic tables are not allowed in the test centers. Candidates are not allowed to bring any other personal belongings such as mobiles.

All centers are closely monitored for security and candidates' identity and activities will be recorded using web cameras and/or closed circuit TV cameras. Anyone violating the rules of the test center will not be allowed to continue with the test and will be automatically disqualified.
