Since you are preparing for BITSAT, you must be preparing for JEE also (most of the students do). Your JEE preparation must be thorough. Focus on your concepts first, make them crystal clear. Solve a variety of problems, so that you become confident in your JEE Preparation.
Never ignore NCERT books. They are extremely important from the JEE and BITSAT preparation point of view. Many times they frame questions based directly on the NCERT text.
After you have become confident in your JEE-Preparation, you may go for a book meant for BITSAT. You may refer Arihant’s BITSAT book. Solve it with speed. Solve it as a practice book for BITSAT rather than a preparation book.
You must also join an online test series. This is the most important part of BITSAT preparation. Many institutes provide online test series for BITSAT at low costs. (Any test series which you will join will be a bit above the actual BITSAT level – So don’t get tensed after the tests). I’m sharing what I learned from this test series –
- Joining a test definitely improved my speed. It gave the real exam-hall experience at home. It used to provide me the exact time spend on each question, time spend on questions which I’ve attempted, not attempted and attempted but with wrong answers.
- I came to know that “half knowledge is dangerous”. Either you should know the solution and get the correct answer or you shouldn’t read the question at all, just blink and pass the question. For example, if you try attempting a question, you spend 20–30 seconds in reading and understanding the question and then attempt it in another 2 mins but finally you did not get any answer or got the wrong answer, then your 2.5 mins go in vain and if the same thing happens in 10 such questions, then you end up wasting 25 mins in the examination hall. So you should decide that whether to attempt the question or not with just a glance at the question. Trust me, if you’ve prepared well and follow this technique, you’ll surely get a high score in the exam .
- After the tests always refer solutions. You may find some shortcuts about which you had never thought of. While taking an online test, practice with as minimum rough work as possible. On the day of BITSAT, you’ll be given a scratch pad for rough work with only 8 small pages – you’ll not get any extra.
You can tackle any exam and succeed in it if your strategy is good. In exams like JEE and BITSAT, strategy is very important. Follow the above mentioned points. I know you’ll surely succeed.
Hope this helps!
All the best 🙂
