BITSAT 2019 Exam Pattern
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 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-2019 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.
With only a little time left for you to study for BITSAT 2019, we guess you have started with your preparation. The candidate must start by having a look at the exam pattern carefully. The BITSAT 2019 Exam pattern usually includes the information about the mode and duration of the exam and the exam pattern details like the number of questions, sections of the examination, the marking scheme, etc. Check the detailed BITSAT 2019 exam pattern listed below:
- BITSAT Exam 2019 will be conducted in fully computer-based mode.
- Each day the exam will be conducted in two slots.
- The exam will be held for a duration of 3 hours.
- There will be objective type (multiple choice) questions in the BITSAT examination.
- Questions will be asked from four sections – physics, chemistry, English proficiency & logical reasoning and Mathematics or Biology.
- BITSAT 2019 question paper will carry 150 questions in total.
- 3 marks will be awarded for each correct answer and 1 mark will be deducted for incorrect answers.
|Sections||Subject||No of Questions|
|Part III||(a) English Proficiency||15|
|(b) Logical Reasoning||10|
|Part IV||Mathematics/Biology (For B. Pharm)||45|
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, 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. 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.
