Preparation Tips to ace the BITSAT 2023

BITSAT assesses students’ speed and accuracy in addition to their topic knowledge. A candidate taking the exam must answer a question in approximately 72 seconds. Even the required cutoff marks for admission are pretty high. As a result, it is essential that applicants attempt as many questions as possible and follow the BITSAT preparation strategies listed below to do well on the exam.

Take Short Notes: Take short notes that include all of the main topics and facts. For each subject, you may keep track of quick formulas, reactions, and derivations in one spot.

Solve BITSAT Sample Exams and Previous Year Papers: Solving previous year papers and sample papers can assist students in determining which sections or topics require additional time. Students will also be able to learn about the most frequently asked questions in the paper.

Take BITSAT Practice Tests: Close to the exam date, the mock test series is made available online. Students can take BITSAT practise examinations to gain a feel for the paper layout, types of questions asked, and so on. The student will be able to determine which areas he or she did well in and which areas require additional preparation based on the results.

4. Complete as many test series as you can while simultaneously analysing each one.

5. Time Management: Make a schedule and divide the subjects into groups based on the amount of topics to be addressed. A time table will assist students in planning and completing their preparation on time, allowing them to devote time to answering previous year’s papers.

Admit Card of BITSAT 2023

On June 2023, BITS Pilani will publish the BITSAT Admit Card on their official website. Students must utilise their Application Number, Date of Birth, and Email ID to download their BITSAT 2023 Admit Card.

Candidates must notify any discrepancy or wrong information on the Admission Card to the conducting authority in a timely manner so that a fresh admit card with the proper information can be generated.

Release of Result and Preparation of Merit List for Admission for BITSAT 2023 Exam

The BITSAT result is split into two sections. One advantage is that candidates can check their scores immediately after finishing their exam. The total number of correct and incorrect answers, as well as the points, are displayed on the computer screen. Second, the iteration’s admit list and waitlist are made public. In addition, the college publishes a preliminary score report online.

Only those who meet the basic requirements will be allowed to participate in the admission rounds. The BITSAT 2023results are used to determine the merit position of qualified candidates. For admission, two distinct merit lists will be prepared: one for all programmes save B.Pharm and one for only the B.Pharm programme.

In the event that two candidates have the same score, the merit list will be prepared in the following order:

• Their BITSAT 2023 Math/ Biology results will be taken into account first.

• If there is still a tie, the Physics scores will be considered.

• In addition, the tie will be broken using Chemistry scores.

• If the tie still exists, their cumulative PCM/PCB scores from the Class 12th test will be taken into account.

No official answer key is released by BITS Pilani. Some of the most prestigious coaching institutes, on the other hand, make the answers public. When the BITSAT 2023 answer key is released, you can compare your answers to the answer key to determine your likely score.

Counselling and Admission of BITSAT 2023 Exam

BITSAT Counselling 2023 will be done in iterations, with admission and waiting lists being released after each round. Beginning in July 2024, students can expect six rounds of counselling sessions.

All students who have received first place in their respective State/ Central board exams, regardless of their BITSAT 2023 score, are allowed direct admissions. • There are no reservations in BITSAT 2023.
