3.         BITSAT Test Details

Computer Based Online test’ means the candidate sits in front of a computer and the questions are presented on the computer monitor and the candidate submits the answers through the use of key board 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-2008 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-2008 Test Format

BITSAT-2008 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

Students who have taken Mathematics and not Biology in 10+2 have to appear for Mathematics in Part IV. Students who have taken Biology in 10+2 and not Mathematics have to appear for Biology in Part IV. Students who have taken both Mathematics and Biology in 10+2 can opt for either Mathematics or Biology in Part IV. Candidates who appear in Biology in Part IV will be eligible for admission to M.Sc. (Hons.) Biological Sciences and B.Pharm. (Hons.) only. Candidates who appear in Mathematics in Part IV will be eligible for admission to any of the Integrated First degree programmes, including M.Sc.(Hons.) Biological Sciences and B.Pharm.( Hons.).

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.  No marks are awarded for not attempted questions. 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:

 

Subject

No of questions

Part I

Physics

40

Part II

Chemistry

40

Part III

(a) English Proficiency

(b) Logical Reasoning

15

10

Part IV

Mathematics OR Biology

45

 

Total:

150

There is no time limit for individual parts of the test. 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 (twelve) extra questions, if there is still time left. These extra questions will be from Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics / Biology only; four questions from each part.  Further, once the candidate has opted for extra questions, he can not 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. However, candidates should keep in mind the fact that there is negative marking for wrong answers and any attempt to answer the questions by pure guessing of the answers is not likely to have any advantage, but may result in a reduction in the total score.

The questions will be selected at random from a large question bank. Different candidates will get different question sets. An expert committee will ensure that the question sets are of comparable difficulty level, content, question type etc. In this matter, the decision of the expert committee will be final and binding on the candidate.

All the questions and instructions of the test will be in English only.

Each candidate who registers for BITSAT-2008 will be issued a ‘Hall Ticket’. Candidates with the hall ticket only will be allowed inside the test centers. Candidates should bring a pen for the purpose of rough work, signing etc. Blank sheets for rough work will be provided, if required. Calculators and logarithmic tables are not allowed in the test centers. Candidates are not allowed to bring any other personal belongings such as mobiles.

All centers are closely monitored for security and candidates’ identity and activities will be recorded using web cameras and/or closed circuit TV cameras. Anyone violating the rules of the test center will not be allowed to continue with the test and will be automatically disqualified.
