Birla Institute of Technology and Science Admission Test (BITSAT 2021) is a university-level online entrance exam conducted by Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani (BITS Pilani) for admission into undergraduate engineering courses (B.Tech) at various campuses of BITS present at Pilani, Goa, and Hyderabad. The exam scheduled for BITSAT will be aanounced by BITS. The best part of the extension of the exam date is, candidates now have extra time for preparing for the examination.  

BITSAT is an online mode examination that includes questions in subjects like Physics, Mathematics/Biology, and Chemistry. The level of question is from class 11th and 12th (NCERT Syllabus).

The competition for BITSAT is very tough every year. Nearly 2 lakh candidates apply for 2000 seats present in all of the campus. As tough as it seems to be, it is not at all impossible to crack in the first attempt. Aspirants applying for BITSAT also prepare for JEE Main. Though they have a different pattern and marking scheme, they both follow an almost similar syllabus. While the JEE Main focuses on conceptual learning, BITSAT is more about speed and accuracy.
