Many national-level entrance examinations are yet to take place, specifically for engineering courses. After the prestigious Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) conducted by CBSE on Apr 8, more number of engineering entrance examinations are set to take place and Birla Institute of Technology and Science Aptitude Test (BITSAT) is one amongst them.


BITSAT is conducted for admissions to engineering and technology courses at the Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) campuses in Pilani, Goa and Hyderabad. BITSAT is one of the most popular entrance examinations and on an average more than two lakh candidates take this national-level test annually. This BITSAT exam will be conducted online and will take place in the next month.

Prior to BITSAT, CBSE will release the JEE Main answer key on Apr 24 and JEE Main results on Apr 30, 2018. We all know that only 2.24 lakh candidates will be shortlisted to take JEE Advanced, which take place on May 20, 2018. The results of JEE Main will be announced before the BITSAT exam and this might dampen the morale of candidates who haven't been qualified for JEE Advanced.

The results could come as a terrible news for any candidate who has combined day and night for the preparations. We can't, however, let a setback kill our spirit and we can't spend too much time thinking about it. We should start analysing where we went wrong and try to correct the mistakes for the coming entrance examinations, such as BITSAT. Here are some of the preparation tips for the BITSAT exam after accepting the failure of JEE Main 2018.
