Purpose of Attempting 12 Extra Questions in BITSAT
If a candidate answers all the 130 questions (without skipping any question) in BITSAT, the candidate
will have an option of attempting 12 extra questions, if there is still time left. These
extra questions will be from Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics 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 130 questions.
The questions in BITSAT are designed in a way that a good student will be able to answer 130 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.
Note : Speed & accuracy are very important in BITSAT. It is recommended that you practice as many online mock tests as possible.
