BITSAT 2020 will be of total three-hour duration (without break). The test will consist of four parts:

  • Part I: Physics
  • Part II: Chemistry
  • Part III: (a) English Proficiency and (b) Logical Reasoning
  • Part IV: Mathematics

All questions will be of objective type (multiple choice questions); each question with choice of four answers, only one being the correct choice.

Each correct answer will fetch three marks, while each incorrect answer will have a penalty of 1 mark (-1 mark). No marks will be awarded for questions not attempted.

While the applicant can skip a question, the computer will not allow the applicant to choose more than one option as the correct answer.

There will be 150 questions in all. The number of questions in each part is as follows:

Part                        Subject                                 Number of questions

Part I                     Physics                                                 40

Part II                    Chemistry                                           40

Part III                   (a) English Proficiency                    15

                               (b) Logical Reasoning                       10

Part IV                  Mathematics                                      45

                                                                       Total      150

If the applicant answers all the 150 questions (without skipping any question), the applicant 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 only; 4 questions from each part. Further, once the applicant has opted for extra questions, he cannot go back for correction of any of the earlier answered 150 questions.

Important stuff to keep in mind about BITSAT 2020 Exam Pattern:

  • There will be no time limit for individual parts of the test. The applicant can go back and change any of his/her answers to the 150 questions.
  • The questions in BITSAT 2019 will be 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 applicants to score higher. However, applicants ought to 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.
  • The questions in BITSAT 2019 will be selected at random from a large question bank. Different applicants will get different question sets. An expert committee will ensure that the question sets are of comparable difficulty level, content, question type etc.
