Only Students who are appearing for 12th examination in 2024 or who have passed 12th Examination in 2018 are eligible to appear in the BITSAT-2024 test

If a candidate has taken more than one attempt in 12th class or its equivalent, only his latest performance is considered, provided this attempt has been for the full component of subjects/courses prescribed. Students who have passed 12th examination in 2017 or earlier are NOT eligible to appear in BITSAT-2024. Students who are presently studying in BITS at any of its campuses are not eligible to appear in BITSAT-2024.

Admissions will be made purely on merit. The merit position of the candidate for admission will be based on the score obtained by the candidate in the BITSAT-2024. However, their eligibility for admission is subject to fulfilling the requirement of minimum marks in 12th examination, as mentioned above

Direct Admission to Board Toppers:

In the past, admission process of the Institute always ensured guaranteed admission to all the students who obtained first ranks in their respective board examinations. This has given a very vital input of highly meritorious students from all over India. First rank students of all the central and state boards in India for the year 2024 will be given direct admission to the program of their choice, irrespective of their BITSAT-2024 score as per the eligibility criteria mentioned above. Further details about this scheme will be available at BITS admission website by 15th of May 2024

Details of BITSAT-2024:

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-2024 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-2024 Test Format:

BITSAT-2024 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. Pharm 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 (-1 mark)

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:

BITSAT Details:

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.

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. 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.

Each candidate who registers for BITSAT-2024 will be instructed to download a ‘Hall Ticket’. Candidates with the hall ticket only will be allowed inside the Test centers. All centers are closely monitored for security reasons and candidates’ identity and activities will be recorded V using web cameras and/or closed circuit TV cameras fitted in the test centers. Candidate’s finger print and photograph will be taken at the time of the test (BITSAT-2024) and will be matched at the time of admission at particular BITS campus. Anyone violating the rules of the test center will not be allowed to continue with the test and will automatically be disqualified


The BITSAT-2024 test will be conducted on the basis of NCERT syllabus for 11th and 12th class. The detailed syllabus is given in the Annexure. Candidates may refer to the NCERT textbooks for the contents. A sample test demonstrating the features of BITSAT-2024 will be made available to the registered candidates at the BITS admission website on which he/she can practice as many times as desired.

BITSAT score report:

At the completion of the test, the computer will announce the result to the candidate in terms of number of total correct answers and wrong answers, with the score. The candidate can also check his or her score report at the BITS admission website on the next day of his or her test date. The candidate can also take a printout of his or her score report for any further usage. No student will be allowed to repeat the test in the same year.

Merit List for Admission:

As explained earlier, a candidate who appears in BITSAT-2024 is eligible for admission only if he/she gets the required minimum marks in the Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics subjects of 12th examination as per the eligibility criteria described already. All candidates who appear in BITSAT-2024 and are interested in admission will be required to submit Admission application form with 12th marks and preferences to different degree programmes offered at Pilani, Goa and Hyderabad campuses, starting from 16th May 2024 till 18th June 2024. Admission decisions (Iteration 1 results) will be announced on 20th June 2024. Further details about different iterations will be announced on the admission website.

The merit position of such eligible candidates (i.e., those who have appeared in BITSAT2024 and who have submitted the application for admission in the prescribed form with 12th marks, preferences and the required fees) will be prepared on the basis of their scores in BITSAT-2024. There will be two separate merit lists prepared for admission. One for all the programmes except the B.Pharm. and, the other only for B.Pharm. The cases of bracketing, if any, will be dealt with as described below:

When the score of two candidates are the same, first their scores obtained in Mathematics/Biology (For B.Pharm) in BITSAT-2024 will be considered for separating them. If the tie still exists, then their scores in Physics in BITSAT-2024 will be considered for separating them. Further tie is eliminated using their scores in Chemistry. Finally, their PCM/PCB (for B.Pharm) total marks in 12th examination will be considered for their separation.

Test Centers for BITSAT-2024:

In order to facilitate a large number of students all over India to participate in BITSAT-2024, apart from Pilani, Goa and Hyderabad campuses of BITS where it is expected that a large number of students will take the test, the Institute is also planning to offer the tests at dedicated test centers in several other cities.
