Subject Experts

SANCHIT KHANNA, a student of BITS Pilani who scored 381 in BITSAT 2015 shares a few tips-

He feels if a student prepares well for JEE Main, then no extra preparation is required for BITSAT.Practice a sufficient number of mocks to get a fair idea of the BITSAT Paper pattern.The English and reasoning paper pattern might appear new to the students since this is not included in the JEE Mains papers.

He suggests that the NCERT is enough for chemistry while a detailed book like DC Pandey would suffice for Physics.The English and reasoning sections in the mock tests will be enough practice for these sections.He stresses on the importance fo Co-ordinate Geometry, Trigonometry in maths and Optics and Mechanics in Physics.Learning up Organic chemistry will also give you an edge over the others.He suggests staying calm before the exam and avoid any last minute preparation.The time before the exam should be spent in relaxing and focussing on the exam that you have to give rather than learning new concepts and pressurizing yourself.
