 Bits Pilani, a world of its own.

Review Image

Anonymous B.Pharm  Student


It is the best thing ever happened. Its a world of its own. No reservations. So all students are worthy and smart. Good chance to open up and shape your personality. Last chance to make mistakes and do whatever you want. Live the experiences which are going to become stories you'll find yourself telling your children 20 years from now.   

Admission Difficulty: Hard

Admission Criteria:241. I was interested in Pharmacy only. I was a medical student. Cut off for Pharmacy is very low and hence i easily qualified. For pharmacy, both medical and non medical students can apply. There's an option between maths and biology.


Cultural Fest, OASIS. Full of enthusiasm and a lot of participation. Indulging and active for 96 hours straight. Lot of events to watch as well. Professional concerts are there. Getting better every consequent year. Dance, Music, Theatrics, all kinds of competitions. Good food, lot of new people.
