All Students who are aspiring for Admission to B.Tech Engineering Programs in BITS Pilani, BITS Goa and BITS Hyderabad Campus through BITSAT 2015 All India Entrance Exam for the Academic year 2015 – 2016 and searching for BITSAT 2015 Question Paper Pattern can check BITSAT 2015 Test Format and BITSAT 2015 Question Paper Pattern.

BITSAT 2015 Test Format and Question Paper Pattern  : 

BITSAT 2015 Test Format : 

BITSAT 2015 Online Entrance Test is a Computer Based Test Conducted All Over India across Various BITSAT 2015 Online Test Centers. BITSAT 2015 Applicants 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-2015 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-2015 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)

BITSAT 2015 Question Paper Pattern :  

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

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, and Mathematics/Biology only; four questions from each part.  Further, once the candidate has opted for extra questions, he 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.
