Birla Institute of Technology & Science, Pilani invites application for Birla Institute of Technology & Science Admission Test (BITSAT 2019), a computer-based online test. BITSAT 2019 is conducted for admission to integrated first-year degree programmes of BITS Pilani at Pilani campus, Goa campus, Hyderabad, and Dubai Campus for the academic year 2018-19.
BITSAT 2019 will have 3 hours of duration (without break).
The test consists of four parts:
Part I: Physics - 40 Questions
Part II: Chemistry - 40 Questions
Part III: (a) English Proficiency - 15 Questions (b) Logical Reasoning - 10 Questions
Part IV: Mathematics/Biology (For B.Pharm. Candidates) - 45 Questions
All questions are of objective type (Multiple Choice Questions); each question with a choice of four answers, only one is the 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 will not allow the candidate to choose more than one option as the correct answer. There will be 150 questions and will not allow the candidate to choose more than one option as the correct answer.
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, and 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 an advantage but may result in a reduction in the total score
All the questions and instructions of the test will be in English only. 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 centres. Candidates are not allowed to bring any other personal belongings such as mobiles
