There will be 150 questions in all. The number of questions in each part is as follows:
|Subject||No of questions|
|Part III||(a) English Proficiency||15|
|(b) Logical Reasoning||10|
All questions are multiple choice questions with four options, only one being correct. Each correct answer fetches 3 marks, while each incorrect answer fetches -1 mark. No marks are awarded for not attempted questions.
Candidates can skip questions/ mark questions for further ‘review’, can go back and change any of their answers among the 150 questions, but are not allowed to choose more than one option as correct answer. All the questions and instructions of the test will be in English only.
BITSAT is a three hour exam and there is no time limit for individual parts of the test.
BITSAT unlike other competitive exams gives a chance to highly meritorious candidates to score higher. If a candidate answers all the 150 questions (without skipping any question), the candidate will have an option of attempting 12 (twelve) additional questions, if there is still time left. These extra questions will be from Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics only; with four questions from each part. But, once the candidate has opted for extra questions, he/ she cannot go back for correction of any of the earlier answered 150 questions.
Unique question paper for each candidate:
Since BITSAT is conducted over a period of time, different candidates will get different question sets. The questions are selected at random from a large question bank. BITSAT expert committee ensures that the question sets are of comparable difficulty level, content, question type etc.
NO Biology, for BITSAT 2009:
For the first time in the year 2008, BITS gave its candidates the option of attempting Mathematics or Biology while they appear for the BITSAT exam. Candidates who opt for answering the Biology part of BITSAT 2008 were eligible for admission only to B.Pharm (Hons) and M.Sc. (Hons) Biological Sciences.
For BITSAT 2009, the above scheme has changed. Candidates do NOT have the option of attempting Mathematics or Biology. So ALL candidates, including the ones who are looking at admissions to B.Pharm (Hons) and M.Sc. (Hons) Biological Sciences will have to attempt the Mathematics part.
