A Computer Based Online Test for Admission to Integrated First Degree programmes of BITS, Pilani, 2011-12
The Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) Pilani is an all India Institution declared as Deemed to be University under Section 3 of the UGC Act. Admissions to all the Integrated First Degree programmes of BITS, Pilani, at Pilani campus, Goa campus, and Hyderabad Campus for the academic year 2011-12 will be made on the basis of a Computer based Online Test conducted by BITS, Pilani. This test will be referred to as ‘BITS Admission Test – 2011’, in short as BITSAT-2011 hereafter in this document. 1. Integrated First Degree Programmes to which admissions will be made on the basis of BITSAT-2011:
BITS Pilani Campus at: Pilani Goa Hyderabad B.E.(Hons.): Chemical Engg. Civil Engg. Computer Science Electrical and Electronics Engg. Electronics & Communication Engg. Electronics & Instrumentation Engg Mechanical Engg. Manufacturing Engg. B.Pharm.(Hons.) M.Sc.(Hons.): Biological Sciences Chemistry Economics Mathematics Physics M.Sc.(Tech.): General Studies Finance Information Systems √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √ √
Note: All students admitted to M.Sc.(Hons.) programmes are given an option to work for a second degree for one of the B.E. (Hons.)/B.Pharm.(Hons.) programmes under the dual degree scheme, assignment being made by competition on their performance at BITS at the end of first year, separately in Pilani, Goa and Hyderabad campuses. Under this scheme, a student normally requires five years to complete both the degrees and is awarded both the degrees, namely M.Sc.(Hons.) and B.E.(Hons.)/B.Pharm.(Hons.)
only his latest performance is considered. The test consists of four parts: Part I Part II Part III Part IV : : : : Physics Chemistry (a) English Proficiency and Mathematics (b) Logical Reasoning All questions are of objective type (multiple choice questions). 3. While the candidate can skip a question. The merit position of the candidate for admission will be based on the score obtained by the candidate in the BITSAT-2011. each question with choice of four answers. Chemistry. However. Chemistry. the Day and Time of his/her convenience to take the test. Each correct answer fetches 3 marks. There will be 150 questions in all. If a candidate has taken more than one attempt in 12th class or its equivalent. 2011. their eligibility for admission is subject to fulfilling the requirement of minimum marks in 12th examination. at least 60% marks in each of the Physics. This is unlike the traditional paper-pencil based test. provided this attempt has been for the full component of subjects/courses prescribed. This has given a very vital input of highly meritorious students from all over India. Details of BITSAT-2011: ‘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. BITSAT-2011 will be offered over a period of time and the candidate can choose the Center. The number of questions in each part is as follows: II . Further details about this scheme will be available at BITS website by 20th May. as described in the later sections. candidates should have passed the 12th class examination of 10+2 system from a recognized Central or State board or its equivalent with Physics. which prepares the question set and delivers it to the candidate on the computer. Further the candidate should have obtained a minimum of aggregate 80% marks in Physics. BITSAT-2011 Test Format: BITSAT-2011 will be of total 3-hour duration (without break). Only Students who are appearing for 12th examination in 2011 or who have passed 12th Examination in 2010 are eligible to appear in the BITSAT-2011 test.2. Students who have passed 12th examination in 2009 or earlier are NOT eligible to appear in BITSAT-2011. and Mathematics subjects and should have adequate proficiency in English. First rank students of all the central and state boards in India for the year 2011 will be given direct admission to the program of their choice. Chemistry and Mathematics subjects in 12th examination. the computer will not allow the candidate to choose more than one option as correct answer. No marks are awarded for questions not attempted. Students who are presently studying in BITS at any of its campuses are not eligible to appear in BITSAT-2011 Admissions will be made purely on merit. as mentioned above. admission process of the Institute always ensured guaranteed admission to all the students who obtained first ranks in their respective board examinations. Direct Admission to Board Toppers: In the past. and Mathematics. Eligibility: For admission to any of the above Integrated First Degree Programmes. Each computer is connected to a server. while each incorrect answer has a penalty of 1 mark (-1mark). only one being correct choice. which is generally offered on a single day to all candidates. irrespective of their BITSAT-2011 score as per the eligibility criteria mentioned above.
The questions are so designed that a good student will be able to answer 150 questions in 180 minutes. he cannot go back for correction of any of the earlier answered 150 questions. Syllabus: The BITSAT-2011 test will be conducted on the basis of NCERT syllabus for 11th and 12th class. signing etc. if required. question type etc. However. These extra questions will be from Physics. the candidate will have an option of attempting 12 (twelve) extra questions. but may result in a reduction in the total score. Candidates may refer to the NCERT textbooks for the contents. and Mathematics only. The extra questions (a maximum of 12) will give a chance to highly meritorious candidates to score higher. III . The candidate can go back and change any of his/her answers among the 150 questions. A sample test demonstrating the features of BITSAT will be made available to the registered candidates at the BITS website on which he/she can practice as many times as desired. the decision of the expert committee will be final and binding on the candidate. Calculators and logarithmic tables are not allowed in the test centers. All the questions and instructions of the test will be in English only. Candidate’s finger print impression will also be taken at the time of the test and will be matched at the time of admission. The questions will be selected at random from a large question bank. Chemistry. four questions from each part. Further.Subject Part I Part II Part III Part IV Physics Chemistry (a) English Proficiency (b) Logical Reasoning Mathematics Total: No of questions 40 40 15 10 45 150 There is no time limit for individual parts of the test. 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. Anyone violating the rules of the test center will not be allowed to continue with the test and will automatically be disqualified. if there is still time left. Candidates with the hall ticket only will be allowed inside the Test centers. Different candidates will get different question sets. Blank sheets for rough work will be provided. The detailed syllabus is given in the Annexure. content. If a candidate answers all the 150 questions (without skipping any question). Candidates are not allowed to bring any other personal belongings such as mobiles. once the candidate has opted for extra questions. All centers are closely monitored for security and candidates’ identity and activities will be recorded using web cameras and/or closed circuit TV cameras. Each candidate who registers for BITSAT-2011 will be instructed to download a ‘Hall Ticket’. Candidates should bring a pen for the purpose of rough work. In this matter. An expert committee will ensure that the question sets are of comparable difficulty level.
