Students ask this question quite a few times,
What extra needed for BITSAT, If I am JEE aspirant?
Lohit Marodia, who scored BITSAT Score of 358 in BITSAT 2015, says this:
“BITSAT is not at all of JEE Level. BITSAT is more about speed. I would say BITSAT is also easier than JEE Mains.”
If you are preparing for JEE, you don’t need to do something special for BITSAT. The concepts are the same from class 11th and 12th. Still there are some important tips and points to keep in mind for BITSAT exam.
Speed is the Key to Success in BITSAT
While JEE Main have 90 questions (30 each of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics), BITSAT is having 125 questions of PCM. 40 each in Physics & Chemistry, and 45 Maths questions. The test duration is same i.e. 3 hours both for JEE Main and BITSAT. So, you need to solve more questions in BITSAT as compare to JEE Main.
English and Reasoning Section in BITSAT
Along with PCM, there are two more sections in BITSAT – English and Logical Reasoning (with 15 and 10 questions respectively).
According to Lohit, The only thing which trouble students in BITSAT is the English Section where there are questions on Vocabulary section which becomes quite difficult. So, it’s important that you have strong command in English and have gone through some examples, similar to the type of English questions asked in BITSAT previous year papers.
Online Practice of BITSAT Mock Tests
The best way to increase the speed is to attempt as many BITSAT mock tests as possible in the days remaining for the BITSAT exam.
