Every year, the Birla Institute of Technology & Science (BITS), Pilani, conducts BITSAT, a computer-based entrance examination to select candidates for its B.E., B.Pharm. & M.Sc. courses. This premier institute has branches in Hyderabad and Goa (as well as in Dubai); and thus, through its entrance exam, it chooses a sizeable number of students to pursue its various programs on offer.
To be eligible for BITSAT, a candidate must have passed the XII examination of a 10+2 system from a recognized Board (or its equivalent), with Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics; and should possess adequate proficiency in English.
Students appearing in the XII exams in 2019 are also eligible to apply.
A candidate must have secured a minimum of 75% marks in Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics (if he/she has opted for Mathematics in BITSAT) in XII; OR a minimum of 75% marks in Physics, Chemistry, and Biology (if he/she has opted for Biology in BITSAT - for the B. Pharm. program) in XII; with at least 60% marks each in Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics/Biology.
BITSAT is a three-hour exam, with 150 objective-type, multiple-choice questions divided across four sections: Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and English Proficiency & Logical Reasoning.
IN 2018, the pattern of the paper was as follows:
|Sections||Subjects||No. of Questions|
|IV||Mathematics/Biology (for B. Pharm.)||45|
Every correct answer fetched 3 marks; while 1 mark was deducted for every wrong answer. For every unanswered question, no mark was deducted.
The syllabus of BISAT comprises majorly Physics, Chemistry, Math (or Biology) and English & Logical Reasoning. Although at par with the NCERT syllabus, but the questions asked in the exam are a bit higher in level.
Units & Measurement, Newton's Laws of Motion, Work and Energy, Kinematics, Impulse and Momentum, Rotational Motion, Mechanics of Solids and Fluids, Gravitation, Waves, Oscillations, Electrostatics, Heat and Thermodynamics, etc.
