BITSAT Test Format

BITSAT test will be of 3-hour duration without a single break and will have 4 parts:

    No. of Questions: 40

  • Part 2 Chemistry
    No. of Questions: 40

  • Part 3
    English Proficiency:
    No. of Questions: 15
    Logical Reasoning:
    No. of Questions: 10

    No. of Questions: 45

Marking Scheme in BITSAT

The questions BITSAT are of objective type; and the candidates are given a 4 answers as a choice for each question, with only 1 being the correct one. The candidates are not allowed to choose more than 1 correct answer, however they can skip a question. The candidates earn 3 marks, and there is a negative marking of 1 for each wrong answer.

No. of Questions
A total of 150 questions will be there in the test and once the candidates answers a question, they are again allowed to go back and change their choice of answers.

12 Extra Questions
If the candidate finishes answering all the 150 questions without skipping any of the question), and if there is still time left, then they will be provided with an option to attempt answering extra 12 questions. The extra 12 questions will be four questions each from Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics only. Once the candidate has opted for the extra questions, they can’t go back for correcting the earlier 150 questions.

These extra questions give a chance to the meritorious candidates to score higher. However, the candidate should always remember that a single wrong answer can earn them negative markings. The BITSAT questions will be selected randomly and hence all candidates will get different set of questions.

All the instructions will be mentioned along with the questions and will only be in English language. Even though the test will be computer based, they should still get a pen along with them for the purpose of signing, rough work, etc. If required, the candidates will be provided with blank sheets for rough work at the exam center. Instruments such as logarithmic tables and calculators are not allowed in the test centres. The candidates are also not allowed to bring mobile phones to the exam center.
