BITSAT Exam Pattern

The BITSAT Exam Pattern 2017 is as follows:

The BITSAT 2017 is a Computer Based Online test which means the candidate sits in front of a computer and the questions are presented on the computer monitor and the candidate answers the questions on the computer through the use of keyboard or mouse. Each computer is connected to a server, which prepares the question set and delivers it to the candidate on the computer. This is unlike the traditional paper-pencil based test, which is generally offered on a single day to all candidates. BITSAT 2017 will be offered over a period of time and the candidate can choose the Center, the Day and Time of his/her convenience to take the test, as described in the later sections.

BITSAT 2017 Test Format:

BITSAT 2017 will be of total 3-hour duration (without break). The test consists of four parts:

Part I: Physics

Part II:  Chemistry

Part III:  (a) English Proficiency and   (b) Logical Reasoning

Part IV:  Mathematics or Biology (For B. Pharma candidates)

All questions are of objective type (multiple choice questions); each question with choice of four answers, only one being correct choice. Each correct answer fetches 3 marks, while each incorrect answer has a penalty of 1 mark (-1mark).  No marks are awarded for questions not attempted. While the candidate can skip a question, the computer will not allow the candidate to choose more than one option as correct answer.

There will be 150 questions in all. The number of questions in each part is as follows:



Number of Questions

a. English Proficiency

 b. Logical Reasoning



Part IV

Important Information:

  1. There is no time limit for individual parts of test.
