Key points of BITSAT 2024:

  • BITSAT is a computer-based test with 130 questions of multiple-choice type.
  • The application procedure for BITSAT can be completed online by visiting its official website i.e. bitsadmission.com.
  • The question paper consists of five sections to be completed in 3 hours i.e. 180 minutes.
  • Candidates willing to take the exam must have passed the 12th class board examination securing at least 60% marks in each subject with Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics as mandatory subjects.
  • In case, a  candidate goes on to answer all 130 questions correctly, the candidate will have the option of attempting 12 more questions if there is no paucity of time. 
  • These additional questions will be taken from Chemistry, Physics, and Biology/Mathematics, with four questions from each section. 
  • Moreover, after the candidate has selected extra questions, he/she will be unable to return for rectification of any of the previously answered questions.
  • A day afterward the exam, candidates will be able to view their results online. Printouts of the scores are also available.
  • Individual components of BITSAT 2024 are not time-limited. The candidate can revise any of his or her responses to the 130 questions.

The BITSAT questions will be structured in a manner in which an excellent student will have the ability to respond to 130 questions in a period of 180 minutes. The additional problems will allow highly qualified candidates to score more. Candidates should keep in mind, however, that there is a negative marking system for incorrect responses, and every attempt to answer the questions by solely guessing the answers is unlikely to benefit them and may result in lower overall marks.
