Free Tips and Tricks on how to crack BITSAT examination 2015

** BITSAT(Birla Institute of Technology and Science Admission Test) is an online examination for admission in its three colleges at Pilani,Goa and Hyderabad. BITSAT checks your concept of subjects,time management skills, speed, accuracy, concentration power & decision making ability. So the very first thing is that you need to know is that it is different from IIT-JEE and other engineering and why you will get to know within next 20 minutes.

** For the question paper you have 180 minutes in hand and around 150 questions to attempt (leaving aside the extra 12 questions about which I will discuss later on). A simple mathematical division gives that you have a mere "72 seconds" of time to read the question , analyse it , solve it and mark the answer. The time constraint may cause your nerves to strain but believe me ,you need not panic because a simple strategy ,which I will discuss with you , will help you achieve your goal.

**There are in total 4 sections in the paper with the weightage given as follows:

Maths : 45 questions : 135 marks

Phyics : 40 questions : 120 marks

Chemistry : 40 questions : 120 marks

Logical Reasoning : 15 questions : 45 marks

English : 10 questions : 30 marks

Inclusion of English and Logical Reasoning as examination criteria shows that this test tests your overall personality and not just the knowledge of subjects.

** Your aim is to attempt maximum number of questions in the given time frame with atmost accuracy . Here is the strategy which if followed would give you an edge above others:

First you need to categorise yourself in one of the following four categories:

a)You do perform well under pressure and have a good command over english.

b)You don't perform well under pressure in fact you need a tension free atmosphere to give your optimum output and you have a good command over English Language.

c)You do perform well under pressure but don't have a good command over English.

d)You don't perform well under pressure and don't have a good command over English.

I have categorised with English separately because English is something which is not asked in any other enterance test for technical institute anywhere in India.You also need to realise that 1)English 2) Logical reasoning and 3) Your strongest of (Physics, Chemistry and Maths) sections will help you save time (you can attempt questions in these sections relatively quickly) which you can distribute for other sections.

Here performing well under pressure means your concentration, speed, accuracy and decision making abilites become better when the situation demands you to show them or as an example you belong to the kind of student community who study for the exam on the last day.Well judging the fact whether you can perform under pressure or not could be done with the knowledge of your perfomance in mock test series for various exams and your performance in IIT-JEE which you would have already given by the time you would be writing BITSAT.

And the judgement whether you have proficiency in English or could be drawn from your school background and the time you spent learning that language. Be it reading novels, magzines or newspapers or performing in english section of mock BITSAT tests ,they all encompass your knowledge of english language.

Once you are over with the crucial step of categorising yourself , comes the selection of strategy part, which goes as follows.....

If you fall under category d) then your aim should be to start with a section in which you feel confident (Any of Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Logical Reasoning). The reason behind this gameplan is that you would perform the best(would be able to solve questions quickly and accurately) in section of your choice and your good start would relieve some pressure off you. This in turn would give you a feel of self confidence which is very crucial for the best output. Then you should attempt the section you are less comfortable with and so on in a decreasing order priority.

If you fall under category c) then your aim should be to start with English first because, this is the section where in you don't have much of expertise or your knowledge is poor.Chances are that you won't perform good in this section. Your non performance would give you a kick to concentrate more in other sections as that is where you have to score. A sense of pressure or exam atmosphere builds in which is exactly what you want because your tools (concentration, speed,accuracy and decision making abilities) are sharpened.Once the english section is over....then you can go ahead with sections in decreasing order of comfort.

If you fall under category b) then again you should go ahead with English first, as this section will have questions which if you know the answer won't take any time to solve and chances are that you would know that answer as you feel confident in this section.You don't have to spend time to solve the question and come to any solution.(Ex- which of the following is a synonym of the word "stoicism" ? a) fortitude b)ability c) suitability d) kinship)

This just means that your status is the same as that of a student in the category d) just the fact that your best section here is English.

And if you are someone who feels that category a) would suit best for him or her then you can go ahead with any section first. You might even start with a section which you feel you have the least confidence or conceptual knowledge.

This was all regarding how to proceed sectionwise in the test.

Now if you are someone who finishes all 150 questions before time then you have the full authority over those extra 12 questions.But most of us aren't in that category. So it is better for us to focus only on those 150 questions and forget the extra 12 questions completely. For few of us who are able to cross the mark of 140 questions, arises a dilemma wherein we have to choose whether to attempt those extra twelve questions or not.

This is where BITSAT checks your decision making abilities. There is this risk of getting negative marks in questions above 140(which we compusorily have to solve to get those extra 12 questions) and there is this benefit of getting 12 extra questions or a potential to score 36 more marks.

Let us do a small calculation. Suppose you are able to solve 140 questions and have few minutes left in hand. And you choose to go ahead with attempting the extra 12 questions then....first you have to attempt the rest 10 questions left. The best strategy in this case where you have no clue about the answers,would be to mark the answers in same sequence. This would mean either all a or all b or all c or all d.(And for your kind reference I would like to add that a research by a renowned firm says that in multiple choice questions there is 29% probability that the answer is option C) .

The reason behind this methodology to follow is that there are fairly high chances that out of 10 questions few questions have a as the answer few have b as the answer and so on. If you mark random answers, chances are that you might even get all wrong or a net of (-10 marks) which you cant afford to have when your career is at stake.The strategy which I have discussed with you would yield that even if you get 3 out of 10 answers correct which you have a VERY high probability of getting as you mark all the anwers with the same option......

In such case you have a positive total of 3*3 = +9

and a negative total of 7*(-1) = -7

the net of which is +2

And say if you have a hard day and manage to get just 2 out of 10 correct then you have (2*3=6 and 8*(-1)= -8 which gives a net total of -2). In any case you don't have much to loose but you get to gain 12 extra questions where you can score a maximum of 36 marks and thus get your net score booming. The point to be noticed here is that I have taken only the worst case scenario. If the day is yours then you might even get 4 or 5 out of 10 correct in which case your score goes rocketing.

Few other general tips would be like going to the examinatinon centre well in time to get yourself comfortable with the centre. Most of the BITSAT examination centres are air conditioned. So in any case if you feel yourself uncomfortable with the cold temperature , you can ask the people over there to adjust the temperature. Yeah there is hardly any scope for cheating as there is a webcamera placed right in front of each cabinet/ you should not try to get involved in such activities. The questions on the computer of the person sitting besides you also will not be in the same order as questions on your computer.

If in the first 60 seconds you are not able to solve a question leave it at that particular moment and come back when you are done with other questions.You must read all 150 questions...who knows the 150th question may be the easiest for you. Prepare the topics which are extra from IITJEE syllabus once the JEE advanced gets over. BITSAT would start sometime around 10th or 11th of may and JEE Advanced would be over much before that. So in the gap days, cover all such topics. And mostly these extra topics are from chemistry where the answer is memory based....that means solving them would not only get extra marks but would also save time for other questions. Set your target high, because if you think of getting 325 then chances are that you would end up below that so aim for the highest and you will reach where you are destined to.....

Choose a time slot for the test when your brain is the most active. Some people who have a habit of sleeping late at night tend to be sleepy and lazy in the morning time ,for them the afternoon or the evening slot would be better.Some have a habit of sleeping during daytime , for them it is advisable to choose a morning slot. And moreover it is a myth that the difficulty level of questions increases as the days progress. The questions are totally random and the difficulty level can't be judged or decided at all beforehand.

What I believe is that a 3 hrs test is not at all a true test of the level of your knowledge but sadly this is the only optimum method available with our education system till now to test an individual when the number of students applying is in lakhs. So various factors such as our level of confidence, concentration, clarity of mind affect our performance.

I hope my suggestions and experience of BITSAT would help you achieve the best on the D-day. If you have any queries you can post here, I would be glad to help you out if I can. :-)...... and the most important thing to note is that there is no alternate to hard work . These strategies work better when you have done the ground work of studying well.

All the best for your exams and BITSAT of course.....

Hey Saketh

If you follow the guidelines and sincerely devote time for BITSAT, you can crack.

Solve the mock test papers, NCERT books and be clear on the basic fundamentals.

Remember its again not the tough questions(subjective) that you got to practise but, questions which can be solved in 2 minutes of time frame.

All the best!

that was nice i luved it.... but can i crack bitsat if i start from now because datz my goal and i'm striving hard to achieve it.. the only problem is i am not strong in my 11th fundamentals... please answer my question??

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@Pratyusha: First of all, Thank you for the fact that you liked it.....:)

Hope it helps you in the preparation.

Moreoever...concepts of 11th are imp. and you cant afford to ingnore them alltogether.Whatever time you are left with.....just try to focus on few topics....of 11th. Dont go for all. Topic like mechanics say for example if done properly will fetch u good quantity of marks and thus help you sail through. Also if your 11th concepts are not strong then...keep in mind that you are very good with 12th atleast.

All the best for BITSAT

what type of questions come in bits...are they as hard as iit jee questions

Gaurav Arora 5 years ago

Thank You sir for your advice !!

Sir , my paper is just one month ahead and i have not fully devoted my time for bitsat becoz i had already taken admission in a college .

so now if i just solve previous years bits papers n take some mock papers , will it help me in taking my score above 320 ???

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

Gaurav...thank you for the fact that you appreciate the blog and hope it is helpful to you :-)

Now that you have already taken admission in some other would be hard for you to take out time and study specifically for this.

So keeping in mind the fact that BITSAT is more about time management and speed an acuracy, it is a good option for you to solve previous year papers.

And focus on English and logical reasoning too.

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

Anubhav....the questions are not as tough as IIT-JEE.

If you talk in terms of the difficulty of could say it is more or less on the standards of AIEEE.

Nithya 5 years ago

Sir,The tips were really awesome.I am student of state board.I am getting prepared for BITSAT-2011 with the Arihant books.My exam is on may 28.It's more or less just 1 month.That's my dream to study in BITS.let me get clarified whether its possible for me to get seat.......and plz give me some suggestions.........

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

Nithya: See....I am not an oracle that I can tell whether u will get a seat or not.

But the fact that you are preparing with Arihant books...shows that you are hard working and dedicated. Just keep that thing going on with utmost sinceretiy and you will get success.

Also focus on NCERT books and sample papers of BITSAT which you can procure from either internet or coaching institutes or with Arihant and similar books.

Next one month is very crucial for you. Just give your hundred percent and you will surely succeed.

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author


There is no concept of individual cutoff in BITSAT so for the time being if you feel that you are really good at other subjects...then you can afford to not perform good in Physics.

But still you can concentrate on few topics like electrostatic or magnetism where more formula based questions are asked.

i am getting 210-215 in IIT JEE 2011

(phy-85-90 chem-56 maths-65-75)

220-230 in AIEEE 2011 chem-90-95 phy-55-60 maths-75)

wat shud be my strtegy according to you...

cuz m confused the one in which i scored best in jee is the subject in which m getting least in aieee....

can u please solve my dillema.....

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@Shantanu: In this I have already mentioned...a day's performance can't judge your true potential and shortcomings as well. So I would advise you to refer to your past two years of performance and then decide which subject you are most comfortable with.

If you want me to help you out with this dilemma.....what all I can say at max is....BITSAT would be more like AIEEE than IITJEE.

I hope you got what I mean to say.

Cheers and All the best for your BITSAT.

BTW you have performed reasonably well in the above tests so I feel you will perform well in BITSAT too.

1 more thing which i wanna ask is how many marks are needed approximately to get CS in bits pilani???

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@Shantanu: a score of 350+ would ensure CS at pilani campus.

Cutoffs for Goa and Hyderabad campuses would be relatively lower respectively.

nikhil 5 years ago

i've scored 180 in iitjee and 195 in aieee now can i get 320+ in bitsat????

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@Nikhil: Seeing the performance in other exams...getting 320 is achievable but it will take slightly more efforts compared to IITJEE and AIEEE.

If your some portions of physics are poor....its ok for the time being as you can score good in logical reasoning and English..... you have exactly 3 more weeks. Each day counts......infact each hour make the most of it. You will njoy the next four years of your life then :)

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@Mounika and all: The preparation doesn't require any specific books.....but for your satisfaction and believe me seriously your satisfaction only you can refer to...MTG Bitsat Explorer or Arihant, BITSAT by pathak, BITSAT by GKP , BITSAT 2011 by editoraial compilation etc.

The books u used for prepartion of IIT or AIEEE are sufficient to build concepts.

Yeah do try out the mock online tests which come with the CD or available on internet, they will give u quite a good experience.

sir which rank can i expect if i score 195in aieee

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@Shashank: Well....I can suggest what I did for concentration......don't know if that would work for you.

I did pranayam and some yoga aasans and that really did work for me. Plus if getting negative marks is an issue then just concentration might not be the sole reason for that....probably u might get confused between 2 answers and not able to decide which to mark.....and most of the you land up with the wrong answer...

shashank  5 years ago

sir,thanks for giving your precious time.i am obc candidate'i am getting 121 in aiee.estimated rank is 30000 to 35000'i m worried about my future.can i get any nit.or iiit.

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@Shashank: the fact that you belong to obc category...will land you to NITs but...don't expect the top ones.

May be patna, hamirpur and all.....but again u wont get the top branches like CS and ECE.

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@JPR : Of course you can follow this will surely help you achieve the maximum possible marks at your level of preparation and concentration. And yeah All the best!

@Dhruv: Now for a score of 155 you would get a rank for which you will have to compromise either good college or good branch. It is very had for you to get branch like Computer science or ECE in top NITs.But for the time being....wait till your actual rank is out.Don't worry about what is already over. I expect that your rank would be around 15000. And yeah focus on whatever engineering exams are still there. Best of luck !

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@Dhruv:for example in logical reasoning

Look at this series: 7, 10, 8, 11, 9, 12, ... What number should come next?

A. 7 B. 10

C. 12 D. 13

and for English a question like the following can be asked: what is the antonym of stern among the following?





There is no individual cutoff in BITSAT. Its the aggregate marks that matters.

Rahar i'd like to know that from where i may get the best sample papers for bitsat practise and what is the actual (negative )marking scheme for bits....

From where shall i study or practise to improve my English and logical reasoning part!?

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

See in BITSAT there is a pool of around 2 Lakh questions.

You get randomly generated 150 questions out of that pool.

So the level of difficulty can vary from batch to batch.

But in general the toughness will not be much. They wont ask you questions where in you have to think too much coz you have to answer question within less than 90 seconds each.

@Soumya: negative marking in BITSAT is -1 for every wrong answer.Regarding English I would suggest practise for antonyms, synonyms, basic grammer questions.

Basically such questions you can get in BITSAT books which I have already mentioned names of....

Pranav  5 years ago

Sir I am getting 130 in jee 2011 and 150 in aieee 2011.

how much should i expect in bitsat.

my test is on 24th this month.

also is the bitsat sample paper at bits pilani 's website has the same level as actual bitsat.

actually i found it easier in every section.

Pranav 5 years ago

Also can i get bit mesra with 150 in aieee

dipu 5 years ago

can i just rely on ncert books for phy chem

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@Pranav: with 150 marks in AIEEE your expected rank would be around 16000 AIR , so with that rank it would be a bit difficult to get BIT Mesra.

When it comes to expectation in BITSAT, see there have been people whose rank was around 20k but still they could score around 300 marks. So you cant make a generalisation from your AIEEE and IITJEE performance about BITSAT score. Moreover the paper has many different components than AIEEE or IITJEE where you can score maximum marks. Plus the added advantage that BITSAT happens after JEE and AIEEE so you also get added time to prepare which does boost up your score.

All the best!

Pranav Mishra 5 years ago


Sir, if u could tell me some most important topics for bitsat which should be paid more attention from now on.

i have arihant bitsat and trying to comlplete it before my bitsat exams. does paper be tougher than this years aieee one, in your opinion ?

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@Pranav Mishra: the paper will not be tougher than this year's AIEEE for sure. The fact that you are trying to complete the book, its good.....also try the CD which comes with it. It will help you do the time management. Sit with it and give the test for full 3 hours and note down your mistakes and improve upon them.

Regarding most important topics, there arent any topics to be focussed. But again there are topics like chemistry in everyday life etc. which you would nt have studied while preparing for JEE. The questions on such topics would be straightforward. If you know the answers, it will help you save a lot of time and gain easy marks.

All the best for the test.

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@Spatty: The fact that you stopped studying is not a good sign first of all. But the fact that you accept your mistake and are ready to work hard is a really positive sign. First of congratulations for that.

Secondly its good that you have got Arihant book. Practise questions from that, certainly that is not sufficient. Instead of revising all the modules, just see that you know atleast all the formulae, the exceptions and basic know how.

Right now you don't need to go in deep of all the modules and you don't even have time for that.

Give more time to maths to get back your confidence and accuracy level.

All the best!

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@Sveeha:its +3 for each right answer and -1 for each wrong one. Moreover for logical reasoning, if you have any questions which pertain to NTSE or of that level then that is more than sufficient.

For english try reading the basic grammatical mistakes that people do, antonyms,synonyms, Your english NCERT would be the first handbook I should say.

Mug up all the diffuclt words given for each chapter.There is this site called out that.

It is by BITS passout seniors who have compiled their experience.

And seriously logical reasoning can be worked upon but English is something you cant improve in a week or two.

So focus on your strong areas and then go ahead in the battle.


RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@Aakanksha Mishra: see the minimum marks vary from Campus to campus like for few programs in Hyd and Goa the cutoff is lower than that of Pilani.

But if you want a good branch then aim for 300 at least.

If you want minimum then take it as 265. Plus there is also a minor variation each year in cutoffs.

@KK: See integral calculus and trigonometry are imp. topics so you cant afford to be weak in them if you aim to clear BITSAT. It is advised that you prepare them from other books or give a thorough preparation effort.

Give your 100% in these 15 days.

Jr 5 years ago

Sir, plz reply fast. I m waiting !

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@Jr: Unfortunately it is not.

Arihant or MTG or any other book can only give you few sample questions. You need to build concepts of how to solve questions and for that purpose NCERT and other books are necessary. You yourself see, had one book with few questions would have been enough then almost everyone would have bought that book and cleared BITSAT.

The book just gives question practise which you can do from anywhere if your concepts are clear. But the book does give a variety of questions.

I am again repeating the same thing for Jr and others that you don't need special preparation for BITSAT. Whatever you have prepared for AIEEE and IITJEE is sufficient just that English and logical reasoning have to be prepared apart from the normal course.

So Jr don't limit yourself to just Arihant but yeah do finish it first.

Jr 5 years ago

Sir, maths is my weak point .so can u plz tell on wat topics should i focus more for the bitsat paper

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@Dipu: if your NCERT concepts are clear then yes you can.

@Jr: Difficult to point out topics as such but If I have to name a few then, Coordinate geometry, Integration and differntiation, trigonometry.

A student asked me that he was weak in Physics What strategy he should answer to that query was

" that case attempt your stronger sections first.The fact that BITSAT doesn't have individual cutoffs comes as a great relief to you in that case. 150 questions are there in total.

Physics has 40 questions. Lets say that because you are poor in physics you attempt only 20 questions. Now the total number of questions you have would be 150-20=130 questions. Out of that if you manage to get 110 questions correct and say 20 wrong.....then your score would be 310. Which is on the safer side to get you a seat here.

So if you are weak in physics you have to put in extra efforts in other subjects to compensate."

Hope this will help those guys who are in such dilemma

sir, i am getting around 240-250 in iitjee and almost the same in aieee. i don't think i will get a gud seat in iit. i am from chandigarh. now i hav decided to take a seat in pec(if i get it) and give jee another shot next year. i worked very hard and even i used to get top ranks in fiitjee,etc. my parents and even my teachers and even me myself expected around 300+ marks in jee. i didn't lack in my preperations but somehow i felt to much pressurised on the final day. do u think my decision is alright?i would love to hear from u.

@Jaideep: Agreed to the fact that you have less chances of getting a good seat at the old IITs. But a score of 250 in AIEEE would mean an expected rank of 1500 to 2000.

For that rank I would advise you to take top branches in either NIT Trichy , Warangal,or Surathkal. IIIT hyderabad is also a good option.

But I have one question.....are you giving BITSAT?

Don't take any decision in haste before getting the marks of BITSAT.Choose your options wisely cause the next 4 years will decide and define your life. And I mean each and every word I have said. Do read the following blog....

If you are not giving BITSAT then I have already told the best options I feel you have.

jaideep 5 years ago

yes, sir. i am going to appear for bitsat on 14th. thank u for ur previous reply. do u believe it is a gud option to completely drop one year?

jaideep 5 years ago

i appreciate the blog sir. though i am appearing for bits but i don't think i can go there due to some financial problems.

@Jaideep: Believe constraints are not at all an issue.

you get a CGPA above 7 out of get guaranteed 50% Tution fee waiver.....and getting 7 is no big thing, around 55% students in BITS are above 7 moreoever there are many scholarships by BITS Alumni for students who cant afford the education.

Apart from that there is also Students' Aid Fund which is there for people who cant afford the fees.

Moreover banks are ready to give you loans without any Guarantee.

In all you just will have to pay just a meager amount which you will any ways have to do at PEC or any other college.

Decide your career very carefully.

@Jaideep:I would not advise you to take a drop for one year because the reason for you not performing well was pressure and not the lack of preparation.

And my dear friend the pressure next year is going to be even more because it will be your do or die attempt.

With the kind of potential you can get your branch changed in the IITs/BITS/NITs even after joining.

Also keeping in mind your financial constraints, and the fact that freshers always have an added advantage. Taking a drop for one year would be a complete no from my side.

jaideep 5 years ago

thank u sir! i will consider your valuable points and hopefully take the right decision. i am feeling short of words to thank u enough.

Nishil 5 years ago

Sir, this is a really informative hub and its a great boon for us students.

Sir my query regarding bitsat is about the level of que that wud b asked, the basic syllabus mentioned is ncert but wil the que b like the ncert exercises given at the back of each chapters? Murevr there many formulae which are not in ncert but v had to study them for aieee,

like in integral calculas there are many more formulas than given in ncert,

and i have arihant publications' book for preparation of eee if i study it wil it help revise and cover all the topics cmin in bitsat?

Plz tel! :)

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@Nishil: Thanks for your compliments.

The level of questions would be what is there in the sample books like Arihant and all. It wont differ much.

No the questions will not be like the ncert exercises given at the back. NCERT books are just to build the concepts.

If you remember the formulae given apart from NCERT, it will be an added advantage but it is not necessarily required.

If you study the book mentioned it will certainly help revise and cover all the topics apart from ensligh and logical reasoning section.

Rohit 5 years ago

Sir, can we do that guessing part with 25 questions left ?

suppose we attempt 125...and have about 20 min time left in our would take about a min to mark all the rest 25 with the same option ! [suppose 'c' in all cases]

at worst case scenario lets consider i'll get only 5 of them corrrect !

so +15-20= -5 [this i can afford....m just taking the worst case scenario...if i get about 7 correct thn it's absolutely fine..cuz i'll end up getting a positive score of +3]

and now i get to choose the bonus 12 questions...m pretty much confident about PCM...! i might get 8-9 out of them right !

please suggest !

thanks in advance !

Rohit 5 years ago

actually i have made this list

[remember m just taking the worst case scenario]

25 questions guessed [5 right 20 wrong] = -5

20 questions guessed [4 right 16 wrong] = -4

18 questions guessed [3 right 15 wrong] = -3

15 questions guessed [3 right 12 wrong] = +0

12 questions guessed [2 right 10 wrong] = -4

which of these cases do u think we shul actually prefer provided that we have confidently attempted 125 questions [suppse we get 108 right and 17 wrong...a score of 307..which we are totally don't knw...before the test gets should we approach the guessing part ?]

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@Rohit: Dear I guess you have done some miscalculation.

For 18 would be...-6 and for 15 questions it would be -3(correct*3-incorrect*1)

Anyways that wont matter much.And I t don't think that you are taking the worst case scenario when you chooose 5/25.As given equal probability it would have been 6.25 for all options.

And lets take that you get just 4 right and 21 that case you are at a score of -9..which is no one would want to have for sure.

But if you say that you are very confident for PCM of the rest 12 get atleast 8-9 correct out of them then you can surely afford to take chances.

But this shouldn't act like a general strategy.

Rohit 5 years ago

thanks ..a lot !

sorry for the miscalculation...

so will it be safe to go for 20 or 18 or 15 or 12?

my dream is to go for CS ! have to reach 350's around anyhow ! as u mentioned in yur article to go thru all the 150 questions..cuz who knws the 150th question wud be the easiest one !

similarly..who knws those 12 bonus questions wud hv been the easiest ones [ only in case of those who are sure about their PCM ]

so scorin a bit negative n thn attempting those 12 may be beneficial...even if adds +10 to the grand matters a lot !

please suggest !

thanks in advance ! :)

hi sir, i loved you're blog.. :-)

i have 15 days with me.. i need to get above 320..!!

i was wondering, looking at the levels of all the mock tests the english section seems to be really tough... like very tough.. i don't know if only i find it so tough... and also my pcm is quite strong i always manage a score of 250.. all becoause of english my test score jumps down.. all i want to know is that what exactly is the level in bitsat..? and also guessing seems to do more damage for me... any help would be just wonderfull!!

Brilliant blog i shud say,,. i hav a few things to ask you sir. Chem was alwas my good subject but in bitsat i seem to get low scores in chemistry becuz of the theory questions. what should i do about it??? which books r gu d so that i can finish the theory? my xam is in 3 days!!!! Math is ok too. But the problem is Physics. i don't get dat good marks in physics. Any suggestions so that i can increase my score in 2 days(it is possible i gues). English seems a little difficult( not too diff) and reasoning is ok i gues.. how best can i maximise my score???? Please reply at the earliest as my xam is very close..

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@Rohit; Agreed with whatever you your case you can afford to take the risk.Would like to personally wish you all the best!

@Lavanya: It is no shame to accept the fact that you are not as strong as in English as you are in the other subjects.So focus on PCM and logical reasoning more moreover even in English, leave aside the antonym,synonym,which word best suits the paragraph type of can easiy attempt the other questions like the ones which pertain to comprehension and finding errors.

@Sushant Shekhar: You can get through....Your marks in IITJEE and AIEEE clearly show that you have the potential.You got to give in your full for next 2 weeks...even if you perform a little better than the above two exams you are through BITSAT easily. :)

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

MR X: There is no individual cutoff so you needn't decide on the approx time to be spent on each section.

@Mounika; This preparation should take you above 300 for sure....more than that depends of various factors like your alertness, your tendency to avoid silly command over English which even you know cant be improved in a day.Plus the most important were IITJEE and AIEEE?

@Sravya: is a myth that BITSAT papers get tougher in the end....I have mentioned that in the blog too.First of all...relax...tension is not a positive sign. Have confidence in yourself. You are one among the few who have added advantage of reading the blog so you for sure have an edge above others. Plus go through the course of BITSAT which comes in the brochure once more so that you are familiar with every topic there.All the best!

@JIMS: You have prepared hard for 2 BITSAT for sure is not a hurdle big enough to stop you from your will succeed.

@Swati: If just mechanics is your weak point, you neednt be afraid. Just prepare yourself for atleast AIEEE level mechanics. Given the fact that you are good at other topics....It gives me a feeling that you are well prepared and confident too and can get to 350. But take care don't be overconfident either.

@Pranjal: It would be disheartening to know that they don't round off the percentage. So they wont accept your score.

@Thanx for your appreciation.Yaksh I don't know why but...guessing 20 answers sounds too much. If it were 10 or even 12 I would have readily agreed with you. Try that you reach till 135 questions at least and make calculated guess in the next 3-4 questions and then take random guesses. Do post me you experience after you write the exam. All the best.

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

Sasuke:focus on ncert for theroy type questions/. You don't need to go out of that. Search for ncert which is 3-4 years old coz questions can come from that also.

will the real BITSAT be tougher than these sample papers?

According to my score in these sample papers,can i expect CS in pilani?

saurabh 5 years ago

ihave not done well in iit and aieee ,so what are my chances in bitsat

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@Saurabh: See you get time of around one month after your AIEEE during which you can seriously study and prepare for BITSAT....don't worry give your maximum input and yeah miracles don't happen in a day....there is no subsitute for hard work....All the best!

@Akanksha: If you manage a score of around 320 in Arihant sample papers then I have confidence that you will score a score near about the same in BITSAT too. Cs wont be possible at pilani at this score....for that you need to score atleast 350. Do tell me the scores after the exam.

@Rohit: the proportion of such questions would be very minimal....I would suggest you to not attempt the questions if you don't know the answers. But I have a feeling deep inside that if such questions are asked ...they would be asked in a manner that you can deduce from the options given. As in a bit of logical elimination and thinking would give the answer.

@Ruchi: You shouldn't bias yourself saying that you are a girl...I feel these days girls are performing very well. Moreover I myself am about to complete my engineering and have started to feel that at the end of 4 years, branch hardly matters....If you do your MBA....or go for civil services or opt for services in consultancy then branch doesn't matter much. It is how you learn to live life and face challenges that matters the most in college. I would not advise you to take a drop. But if you are very confident and adamant on a particular branch to study or have very special interest in any branch then you might think of it

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@Smita: At this point of time as your exam is already over I can just ask you the grades and hope that you would have got good marks.

@Shantanu: Yeah you stand to get dual degree course at BITS....cutoff cant be decided before all the students have given the exam. The flexible structure of dual you a huge lot of scope.If you have any doubt about dual degree you can aske me.

Nilesh: I need to know your ranks in all the exams before I can advise you how to choose among them.

@Rahul: at 250 sco0re your rank I guess would be around 6500 in this rank getting a good branch in JEE is difficult.

at 235 you stand to get a good rank.....again at 298 you can get some dual degree course. So after you get your AIEEE rank....tell me so that I can help you to choose among NIT and BITS.

sir ,i got 91% in my 12(isc board). i didn't prepare for competitions and as a result i did not do well in jee,aieee and bits. do u think dropping a year and taking professional help for competitions a wise decision?


dipu 5 years ago

i m getting around 150 in aieee,also my bitsat paper has not gone well(240).is it wise to drop a year

shantanu 5 years ago

no, as such i don't have doubts regarding dual courses except getting a good cgpa tougher in dual degree course??most probably i wud get chemistry..

and also i am a lil worried about cut offs this year bcoz some of my friends who were selected in jee with an AIR close to 840,1500,2000 who have scored 382,370,360 in bitsat 2011 were planning to join if more people also think the same then the cut offs wud rise i wont even get chemistry..and since i have filled msc tech IS and finance above BE in goa, i might get msc tech finance.. is msc tech finance course gud enough??what kinds of placements are there in it??i might be doing mba in future..

smita 5 years ago

i scored 254..:(

i know its not a good score but sir, I wanted to know about the admission with advance standing in bits.

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@JR: I would strongly advise you to take a drop and prepare for engineering exams if that is your decision of life....

@Dipu: You might get a dual degree in BITS hyd I guess....if you get any dual degree then don't take a drop.

@Shantanu: MSC finance is an awesome course if you want placments in topnotch banks like Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse etc. which pay you in 6 figures.Regarding cutoffs being high...cant help u in that case dude!

@Smita: yeah but you will have to do courses all again and your already having done the courses wont be of any help. :(

smita 5 years ago

bt it was written that we get admision in the 2nd year on that basis..isn't that so? can u pls giv me details. n what do i do regarding the registration? shud i apply on both the basis i.e. bitsat 2011 n dat of advance standing basis?

For all the aspirants who want to To score 300+ in BITSAT, here are few tips, which you should follow

1. Prepare only from the BITSAT syllabus as given in the brochure You will find the Brochure on the Website - BITS Admissions

Since there are many topics asked in BITSAT, which are not asked in IIT-JEE and you would not want to miss those easy scoring sections.

2. Try to revise all the topics you are good at. You should remember all the formulae by heart. Because in BITSAT, speed and accuracy matters a lot. As I have already explained.

3. Try to spend at least one hour everyday from now on to read the topics which you haven't studied till now.

4. Make a list of all the chemical reactions in chemistry which you feel are important especially Organic Chemistry because this section can be really scoring.

5. Mathematics needs a lot practice. Compared to Physics and Chemistry it is more mechanical than logical i.e. you don't need to use your brain... only your time in solving the it is important to have good speed in solving the problems.

6. Practice as many online tests as possible. There are Mock tests by Arihant, MTG, etc. Because you need to practice sitting 3 hours non stop on a computer.

7. I think out of 180 minutes, time division between different sections would be -30 min - Chemistry, 20 Min - English and Logical Reasoning, 40 - Physics, 70 - Maths. 20 Minutes Spare for revision or attempting extra questions.

8. And the most important of all is to keep cool and give your best shot. Remember GOD helps those who help themselves.

i don t know much but i achieved 434 out of 470 in intermediate first year

so if i practise previous bitsat paper can i gain 350+

pls tell me

RAHAR 3 years ago from India Author

@bhargav and Mahesh : Doing previous years' model bitsat paper would give you a good practice and a fair enough idea of how your actual test would be....but you need to read from your study material to score more than 300 marks.

@Mahesh: its pleasant to hear that you performed well in your inter first year.If you work hard you will surely do much better. All the best!

What is the optimum date to be chosen for the BITSAT? 3 years ago


That was an truly amazing piece of information you've given us.

I am about to go int o the 12th standard [ CBSE] .

And i seriously want to crack the BITSAT.

is it really tough? ( for a person with a normal IQ )

which book would you prefer for practice?

how do i go about my preparation?

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 3 years ago from India Author

you can find the cutoffs for various courses here.

THere is no optimum date as such. Choose a date and slot which suits you and your reading habits. NCERT should be thoroughly finished and then other books like Arihant, or TMH or by any other publication can be referred to. If you are preparing for IITJEE then, that preparation should be sufficient, but you should meticulously revise the topics which are different from the IITJEE syllabus.

The exam is not tough, it's just that you need to practice large no. of questions in short time period and that too infront of a computer.

Varun 3 years ago

needless to say it is an awesome article. btw sir i am giving bitsat this year (again), and my prime concern is with inorganic chemistry. i am very poor at doing things by heart, so i am avoiding all the inorganic reactions (from chapters of s,p,d,f block) with the hope that there cant be any more then 3 questions on it. but in these chapters i have crammed how the nature changes(like stability, solubility etc) across and downwards as such questions have been asked in aieee previously. will that be ok? coz i am really hoping to get into bits.

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 3 years ago from India Author

@Varun : Well, if this is your concern and you are fine with losing upto three questions, then you may as well go ahead with this strategy.

I would also advise you to keep the pattern of reactions in mind atleast, if you can't mug-up the reactions as whole.

For the time that you save doing this, you must ensure that you invest that for preparing for other sections.

All the best!

Varun 3 years ago

Hi its me again :)

first of all thank you very much for your suggestion. secondly, i was going through the syllabus in the brochure and had a few doubts.

In heat and thermodynamics, it says 'conduction, convection, radiation'; does that mean only what is from that topic in the NCERT?

Or will it include all the Wein's law, Stefan's Law, emmisivity etc found in HC Verma under same heading?

Basically, do we take the syllabus with a pinch of salt and study all sub topics in other books or take it to the dot and do only what's there in NCERT ka subtopics?

(this was just 1 eg. there are many such cases)

Varun 3 years ago

I just needed to expand my previous comment. In my previous comment I asked you if we need to go through the topics that are not covered in NCERT? But now I want to ask you that there are also some topics which are there in NCERT but are not there in BITSAT brochure like bernoulli's trials in probability. So yet again my question is that do we 'seriously' need to go through NCERT or stick to syllabus?

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 3 years ago from India Author

@Varun: Yeah, NCERT is your bible when it come to preparing for BITSAT. wein's law etc. have just got formulae to mug up. So that shouldn't take much time either.

Topics which are not there in the BITSAT syllabus, DON'T prepare them.

And it's always good to prepare from other books too, provided if you have the time and energey left with you.

Sai Ram 3 years ago

Wake up everyone, truth about BITS Pilani:

BITSAT is a way for BITS pilani to milk money from us. For AP students, they don't specify if you should submit only 12th marks or both 11+12th (since AP students have board exams in 11th and 12th) in their website. They take money for writing the test, they take money for sending scores, and then after 3 months, they reject the students without giving a valid reason if their 12th marks don't fit the eligibility. They know this beforehand, but don't tell us before applying. They want money- make us pay for writing tests and sending scores INSPITE of knowing beforehand that the student will be rejected. It's a scam.

Hey thankx for your valuable Notes..ur blog was gr8

umm well i got a question or u can say a doubt... ryt nw i have souly dedicating my self to NCERT books and previous years question papers and some mock test that i wil for sure take in coming future so my question to you is,Is it fine if a simply stick to NCERT books n given syllabus by BITS and then solve question papers and couple of mock test's ??

Ekta 3 years ago

thank you for this article. i have a few doubts. everyone says that inorganic chemistry of ncert is just enough for iit-jee etc so i suppose that must be the same with bitsat (please tell me if i am wrong). but what about physics and organic chemistry? i have not attended any coaching for competitive exams and thus i do not know about mechanisms for organic chemistry (except for 5-6 given in the book itself). but i have crammed what is the product when X reacts with Y and have done the questions thoroughly given at the back and have solved examples within chapters for organic ncert. would it be ok if i treat physics in same manner?




Thank u very much sir. These tips are very useful for one like me,whose time management is very poor... sir m having 1 month for my BITSAT.

i further wanna ask u , if a question is not done by me in 60 seconds definitely i will leave it for future attempt (iff time is left after attempting all questions). But generally i ended up having no time left for reattempting those question(which i thought r easy and if some more time given ,those question definitely could be done by me).This is how i screwed up my jee mains.. sir please suggest something for time management while solving paper. m having quite good concepts of all but still no outputs in competetive exams.....

priyal 3 years ago

hello sir, thankyou for your tips.

im a dropper so very much under pressure . I screwed my mains due to panic , tention and lack of time management. i was scoring much better in my mock tests 50% and abave . my concepts are clear but i lack question attempting skill. I know i could perform much better. so bits is my last opportunity but due to my mains exam im loosing in confidence. in two months is it possible to crack bits if i work day and night. should i go for books like DC.PANDEY R.C. Mukherjee H.C.Verma or easier level. also please give me some sugestions to improve my self confidence and question attempting skill.

RAHAR 3 years ago from India Author

@Sam: Yes , you are very much right on the track.

@Ekta: Organic chemistry won't be tough in BITSAT. Just think how tough a question can they ask you if they expect you to read and solve a question in 72 seconds. But for physics your fundamentals should be clear because some conceptual questions which need more of understanding than solving or numerical practice can be asked.

@Nachiket: practice practice and practice. Only then would you be able to solve questions well within time.

RAHAR 3 years ago from India Author

@Priyal: You seem to have been gettting panic attack. Yes, you can certainly crack BITS in 2 months,I can assure you that. :) Your mock test scores show that your basics are clear, you know the fundamentals. Moreover you even know your lacunae and shortcomings.Just work on that.

BITSAT questions are not tougher than JEE Mains' questions , so no need to go in for anything tougher on that front. Just solve mock papers, and try to learn the portion which requires mugging like inorganic etc. I would personally suggest that yoga and breathing exercises will certainly boost your morale and confidence. All the very best!

@Sai: No. you don't get extra time to solve those 12 questions. And you don't have to attempt all the extra questions if you don't know the answers.

@Mukul: That means you have even better chances to get into BITS. As everyone else who has performed well in JEE mains would not be that consistent in his efforts, but if you give in your hard work now. that would certainly be fruitful.

@Abhishek: you still 40 more days with you. You didn't tell your exact approach. How many questions do you attempt? section wise? how many do you get wrong? how many are unattempted..then only can I help you out.

1.improve my physics marks.

2.improve my english marks , advice some books fr ths.

3.can u tell what cld b d marks to get seat, i don't mean cut-offs, there r only 2100 seats (i think so) so what cld b the best bench mark to get in to good marks around 300 will work, or need to surely cross 330 or so.

If you have been scoring more than 70% marks in JEE Mains in your test series....I am pretty sure you would do excellently well in BITSAT too. Not necessarily you have to be weak at a particular may be equally good at all the fields , at the same time.

You said you panicked during the exam...why was that? Did you find the paper tough or you were short of time...or you were too happy to see yourself being able to solve the questions, that in the end you lost concentration.

If it is the lack of time, then you better start clocking your time for tests because questions are too many and time would be too short in BITSAT.

@anon: It is not possible to crack BITSAT in just 3 weeks of prep.

it was really nice of you sharing your experience.

I m having about a months time for BITSAT sir

I have bought a book for preperation of arihant publications,

i have had a very bad experience of online exam of jeemains which i gave on 23rd, my faulty computer and all.

I m scared about the mishappening and that panic which drove me into failure for jee mains.

I exactly don't know how to kick start and prepare for bitsat.

I m simply scared and distressed that my hardwork didn't even land me anywhere,

I start, I stop, I give up , then start again but I'm not able to procede in a right direction about how to prepare well for bitsat, which I actually want to crack.

I m good at english and chemistry.

And physics and maths are not that good.

it would be very kind of you if you can guide for the same.

please do reply

RAHAR 3 years ago from India Author

@Nikita : Glad to know that my blog was of some help to you.

Just one exam going bad shouldn't bring your morale down. Moreover you need to accept the fact that most of your exams in life from now on would be online..CAT or GRE or GMAT or even GATE.Added to that even during your study at BITS you have to give many online exams.

Having said that, Now you need to shoe away all your fears and anxiety and gear up hard for the coming full one month. If you feel that you have worked really hard for JEE Mains then , all you got to do is to just revive back the old confidence in next one month. And you needn't worry about faulty computers and all in BITSAT atleast. The staff at the examination is very cooperative and would make sure that you don't lose time for faults which are beyond your control.

Now coming on to the strategy, if you say that you are good at english and chemistry, then you can afford to not study English at all(cause you can't work on your english in just one month, but do practice logical reasoning questions)! and just revise the static portion of Chemistry(like s p d f blocks and chemistry in everyday life etc.). Finish this portion asap and then get to physics and maths. Devote maximum possible time to physics and maths in order of priority beginning with whichever is weaker.

Prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

All the best!

@Tyson: You can see the cutoff marks for each branch at all the three campuses

A score of around 330 will make you eligible to get admission to most of the branches at all the three campuses.

The test will not be as easy as it is given on the website. So don't consider the level of your prep. based on that test. Moreover you needn't worry about the antonyms/synonyms questions as they would not be more than 2-3 so that's like just around 10 marks out of the total 450 marks.And the list of english words is so huge that it is not worthy to cramming that whole list of words.

Arihant papers are just mock don't stop preparing from your text books even if you score good in arihant tests. You must cover topics like kinematics, questions related to FBD, inertial non inertial frames,conservation of momentum,rotational motion, gravitation,oscillation, electrostatics. The questions will not be very tough...just imagine how tough a questioen they can ask if they give you just 72 seconds to read it and also solve it.

The level of the paper would be similar to previous years' AIEEE papers.For English you can refer to Wren and Martin book.

Very nice Blog.

I have started giving Bitsat mock tests, but the scores are consistent and not satisfying leading to more of disappointment. Could you please suggest something to increase my score?

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 3 years ago from India Author

@Agosh: you can analyse some bits for yourself when you say that you couldn't recall the formulae. So before you give tests any further, compelete the syllabus first.

Your wrong answers are almost 40%. You need to cut down on that.

Your current score is 204 marks.(79 correct and 33 wrong). Suppose you were to reduce your wrong questions by half.Then not only would you be able to spend more time on solving each question(this would increase the chances of getting the answers right too) but you would also boost up your score.

If you were to say attempt just 92 questions(79 correct and 13 wrong), you would score 224 marks and also get more time to solve each question.

Your math scores are good. You need to keep them high consistently.

@Kritika: Giving more tests won't increase your scores. It is advisable to give tests when you have finished the syllabus first.The mock tests would give you the analysis and tell you the sections where you need to work really hard.

Take up the theory/text books for those sections and revise your syllabus. Once you are done doing that, then get back to giving mock tests again. This could be done even in the last one week of prep.

@Aniket: You have yourself told what is lacking in you. He who realises his own mistake, doesn't need anyone to advise him. :)

Hello sir,

Your blog is kind of very helpful for me..

@Sid and All: Don't depend on mock tests. See the syllabus of BITSAT and then prepare accordingly. Mock tests are just to simulate the environment of exam...they don't have to be your reference material.

sir u hav'nt replied to me yet...i asked for ur suggestion long back..pls do reply

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 3 years ago from India Author

@Madhu: My apologies for the delay.

To secure a seat in Comp. Sci at pilani campus you need to score at least 350+ .Now that you haven't practised for last 2 months, you need to revise all the imp. formulae once again. They have to be on your finger tips.

You won't get time in the examination hall to think and recall or derive the formulae. Plus if you mug up the formulae then you will save time in doing those questions too.

In 2 months you would have been out of practice of solving sums too. So revise the formulae and concepts asap and get to solving problems with clock on your table.

All the best!

@Monika: Yes you can skip the questions and attempt them if you are left with time in the end.

@Sid: Questions are randomly selected by a computer out of a question bank which has more than 1 lakh questions. So there are chances that you might get many questions from the same chapter.

madhu 22 3323 3 years ago

thank u for ur suggestion,sir...u suggested that i should mug up all the formulae...does that mean that most of the questions in the exam paper are formula based?

Hi Sir,

i have finished my course(practiced previous years objective jee questions in 60% chapters) barring a few chapters like pblock,stats,complex numbers,and salt analysis.

i have 12 days for my bitsat.

my major problem is i cant recollect the formulaes of the chapters.(eg: poiseuilles eqn, numerically gr8test term in binomial etc.)

1.would it be possible to revise them in 1 week to get?(ill also be doing a paper a day from tnrw).

2. ive done inorganic chemistry only from that sufficient? rotational mechanics, are the questions lengthty?.( 2,3 equations of torque , linear acceleration etc).

thank you.

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 3 years ago from India Author

@arnsrajawat : There are no such short cuts or quick tricks which can give you instant success. It is honest hard work only which can get you, your target of scoring 350+.

If you have not worked hard for the past two years, then I fear there is not much that you can do in 14 days. But don't lose heart at this stage.Brush up the basics , revise the formulae in chem . And solve sums in maths. And if you are serious about getting comp. sci and if God forbid you don't get the desired marks. Then probably dropping a year and preparing seriously is one option.

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 3 years ago from India Author

@gayathri: No, Dont't attempt all the questions. You would score negative marks heavily.

Just focus on attempting around 125 questions. And supposing that you get 100 correct and 25 wrong, then your score is 275.

You never know about the cutoffs, they can vary in the range of +- 10/15 marks. So say the cutoff comes down to 255 or so, then you would lose the opportunity of grabbing that course if you go and attempt all the questions.

Apologies for replying late, even I was busy preparing for an exam.

Hello sir, Firstly a big thanks for the wonderful write-up as it gave me a much better clarity on the examination. I need some urgent help regarding the same. BITSAT 2014 allows you to appear for the exam anytime between 15 May to 1st June. I am keen on giving it on 1st June because then it will give me almost 2 months after my JEE Mains. But the problem is that I don't know whether there is some sort of a change in the difficulty level as the date proceeds. Does the paper become tougher if I choose to appear on the very last date?

It would be great if you could help me out before I register my preference.

Thanks again :)

RAHAR 2 years ago from India Author

@vatsal : yes it is never too late. Give your full attention to this exam. I cant prescribe number of hours but you have to give as much input you can give.

@ankit: no that pool is not available to us.

@all : refer to BITS website to get the individual cut offs for last year for each course.

@sejal : 75% minimum in PCM combined..and atleast 60% individually in each.

First of all, brilliant article..all those tips seem very helpful.

I've got poor marks in JEE Mains 2014 (around 120) and really, really want to get into BITS. So the day after JEE, I took the BITSAT 2009 paper just to test where I stand, and I honestly got 52%. I know I need around 70% to get into BITs institutes, so can you recommend any good books and sincerely how many hours a day I should study?

And, I found the level of difficulty of BITs 2009 questions to be fair, so I think I may be able to crack it :D

And keep up this page, its awesome :D

Farha 2 years ago

Is it necessary to attempt questions from Mathematics? Or is it just the total score one gets that determines the rank? (I am a Biology student with Maths as my fifth subject so I don't hope to score well in it!) Also, because the test is a computer-based one I would like to know if we get the choice of starting whichever section we like or if the sequence is pre-determined.

Is there any minimum number of questions one has to attempt in the paper as a whole or in each section?

Is the overall difficulty level more in JEE Mains or in BITSAT?

(The article was good and really of help with all the calculations!)

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 2 years ago from India Author

@jishnu : within just 1 month you can only finish the following books : maths - RD sharma (12th)

phy - HCV (11th &12th)

chem - Ncert(12th)

@vedant : For english and Logical reasoning : for the time being you can buy

@Farha : It is the overall cutoff. There is no individual cutoff for any section. You can attempt any section first, the choice is yours.

All the best everyone!

Sir, I read the above blog and have gained much confidence that I can crack BITSAT-2014 without much trouble.

I have just given JEE- Mains which didn't go as I had planned. So I have focussed my preparation for BITSAT.

Sir, my class 11th topics aren't very well prepared and i have just 40 days for my paper. Please will you help me on which topics to focuss and what all books will help me do so? Also i am an ISC board student so I don't know much about NCERT. And sir , can you send me a link where i can practice mock test for BITSAT. I have tried many but I dont want to give up. It would be immense pleasure if you help me. Cracking BITSAT is now my main motive.

Hello sir! I really liked your page and your effort to help students. I am an engineering aspirant.Sir, my jee paper didn't go well. I was really confident in chemistry section so kicked off with that one but my time management was poor. I devoted most of my time to the chemistry part as I thought that I should solve most of them correctly and make up for physics as that's my weak section.But when I started with Maths I got so panicky(on realising how much time I had wasted) and left many questions in between.Sir, now I wish to focus on BITSAT. And I have around 1 month to prepare for it.Should I focus on physics now or strengthen my other parts? Also, will NCERT be enough for chemistry and maths?I am also thinking to buy a book:" Online Bitsat by Arihant". Would it be correct one? Please help me out..

Hello. This writing is really nice and motivating. Thank you. I just have one question, this year in my JEE mains, the questions in goemetry and organic were clubbed and given, I mean one question had 2-3 topics combined. I haven't practise much that way. So, my JEE mains did not go so well. My question is does BITSAT have the same level of difficulty with questions clubbled like that? or will the questions be the way they are given chapterwise in the arihant success package?

Sir I am a dropper and also gave improvement exam in which I am expecting around 94%. I screwed up my Jee main because initially it was the invigilator who.wasted my time and then seeing the shortage of time, I started panicking. I would be getting around 110 in it. In mock tests , I was scoring around 180 and the whole year I had performed fairly well in my coaching. After this Jee main, I have become really low on confidence, my only resort is Bitsat. I really want CS in pilani. Everyone was expecting me to get 200+ in mains and a rank of about 6-9000 in advance biy neither of i is possible now as i might not clear cuoff. Sir I am really scared about Bitsat.What should be my strategy in next one month and how to gain my confidence back? Also can I get 350+by preparing for it in next one month?

and by the way I completely accept that a three hour exam is completely rediculous to judge a student , and I was gonna ask ,. I have about 22 days to prepare for BITSAT and a wanna do a whole revision of every single topic in the syllabus do you think its gonna be enough if I spend about 5 , 3 and 3 hours respectively for maths chemistry and physics ? and I am Okey! with English and logical

reasoning . And are those extra 12 questions free from negative marks or are they the same as the remaining questions of the paper ..and THANKS again for the article :D

SUNIL 2 years ago

hello sir,

your blog was really good.

i want to ask some questions.

i am promoted to 12th just few weeks ago. i think i still have almost 11 to 12 months for bitsat 2015.

in 11th i did not concentrate on any competetive exams but did only some practice for kcet. i studied only theory from ncert books and only did board level problems. i got 94% in 11th without struggling much.

i started to prepare for iit 2015 from the month of march 2014.

these are the books i am refering:

Physics: hc verma & NCERT


organic: organic chemistry 9th edition by solomons and fryhle and Ncert.

physical: Ncert and 'a text book of physical chemistry for jee advanced' by dr.r.k. gupta.


Mathematics: tata mc graw hill publications comprehensive mathematics for jee advanced.

i feel chemistry easy, physics average and maths sometimes makes me to quit. but maths is my strongest subject in boards and i scored 100. but it is very tough in iit level for me when i started to study this maths book. i am getting only solutions for maths only for 75% of the problems i solved.

are the books i refer good for even bitsat. specially for maths, should i take any other bitsat level book. my aim is to get in bits pilani at any cost and i am giving my best to do it. my aim is to score 400 in bits. please advice me whether my startegy is good or not. also please tell me about the books i am refering. please give me some advice on maths because i am feeling iit level maths very tough. is maths in bitsat easier than iit?

i am also planing to take disha publications bitsat book.

i will be completing mu syllabus before december of 2014.

Please sir, your every information will be very useful for my life.

Hello sir,

This was helpful.

I want to know that since only 9 days are left for my BITSAT and I've not studied anything, what should I do now?

I do want to get in BITS.

I can just say I studied hard for Boards but not after that.

Hey, I need help with chemistry. I am able to solve most questions in physics and maths barring probably 3 or 4. But chemistry is a problem. I can manage only 20. It brings down my total. How should I prepare chemistry? I am thorough with ncert but seems like I need to read some other text.

Please help :)

sir..ur blog is rely very helpful.

bt m very confused about the most important decision of my life right now.even m preparing for bitsat 2014 but m nt so sure dat i will get the score for the branch i desire.

also there are chances dat i may get a good college in my own state and no one around me is in favour of an year drop bt m very passionate abt getting into an institute as gud as bits pilani..and d reason i cudnt perform well in other exams is lack of preparation and beleiv that with some more practise i will b able able to acheive what i m unable to decide whether i should follow everyone's advice or take an year drop and give a chance to my dreams..

hello sir, i have scored 260 in bitsat 2014. It is just below the cutoff marks for most the programmes. It has been announced that iits have increased their seats so i have hope that i may just get in. Is there any smart way of choosing the programmes that may increase my chances of getting in??

Saharsh 2 years ago

All of the tips that you have written here are seriously very helpful for me however I am still a bit confused about it's question framing like what's the level of the BITSAT paper. I mean how will you compare it with other engineering exams like IIT Mains or Advance.

As you might be knowing that IIT Mains rather gives questions in bulk but however it's questions are not that much tough to solve. While on the other side in IIT Advance, it rather tests for the problem solving approach and it's quality of questions are also very high. So how will you rate the quality of questions in BITSAT.

sir, i am tooo happy to find a blog like this which is useful to crack bitsat exam .i have read the total blog above very very thank ful to your siggestions . i heart fully admire your suggestions .

. actually i am not a bitsat aspirant i was just an ordinary student. i am not able to qualify even jee mains . but with out any previous preparation i have scored 241 marks in bitsat . which made me analyse that i am some what perfect at basic concepts . and i have also analysed that bitsat exam is not so tough as jee mains and advanced as such exam only thing requrired is speed and acuracy as you had already mentioned. but i was little confused at sylubuss and pattern of exam . now i had decided to take coaching for 1 more year try to crack bitsat this time . can you give me a brieff explanation of sylubuss that is helpful for me and lot more bitsat aspirants like 1.from which chapters of PCM does the formulae based questions are asked 2.and from which chapters does the conceptual based qusetions are asked 3.and a useful list of books that the above concepts asked in bitsat are included and like that
