Important Points Regarding BITSAT Exam:
1. There is no time limit for individual parts of the test. The candidate can go back and change any of his/her answers among the 150 questions.
2. If a candidate answers all the 150 questions (without skipping any question), the candidate 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/Biology only; four questions from each part. Further, once the candidate has opted for extra questions, he/she cannot go back for correction of any of the earlier answered 150 questions.
3. The extra questions (a maximum of 12) will give a chance to highly meritorious candidates to score higher. However, 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 but may result in a reduction in the total score.
4. All the questions and instructions for the test will be in English only. Candidates should bring a pen for the purpose of rough work, signing, etc. Blank sheets for rough work will be provided if required. Calculators and logarithmic tables are not allowed in the test centers. Candidates are not allowed to bring any other personal belongings such as mobiles.
