BITSAT 2021: Exam pattern
BITSAT-2021 will be a three-hour, without break exam. The test consists of four parts including physics, chemistry, mathematics/biology. The last part will have tow segments – English proficiency and logical reasoning. There will be total 150 questions. For every correct answer, students will get three marks and for every wrong answer, one mark will be deducted. The candidate can go back and change any of his/her answers among the 150 questions.
If a candidate answers all the 150 questions (without skipping any question), the candidate will have an option of attempting 12 extra questions, if there is still time left. These extra questions will be from physics, chemistry, and mathematics/ biology only; four questions from each part. Further, once the candidate has opted for extra questions, he/she cannot go back for correction of any of the earlier answered 150 questions. “The questions are so designed that a good student will be able to answer 150 questions in 180 minutes. The extra questions (a maximum of 12) will give a chance to highly meritorious candidates to score higher,” as per the official notice.
The entrance exam will be held from June 24 to 30 and the admission list will be issued on July 31.
