About Test 

Birla Institute of Technology & Science (BITS), Pilani a leading Institute of Higher Education and a deemed University under section 3 of the UGC act offering degree programmes in Engineering, Sciences, Technology, Pharmacy, Management and Humanities. This web site describes the admission modalities for the on-campus degree programmes offered at Pilani campus, Goa Campus and Hyderabad Campus of BITS, Pilani.

Birla Institute of Technology and Science Exam  

‘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 by using keyboard or mouse. Each computer is connected to a server, which prepares the question set and delivers it to the candidate on the computer. This is unlike the traditional paper-pencil based test, which is generally offered on a single day to all candidates. Salient features of BITSAT-2023 are given below:

• A candidate may appear a maximum of two times in BITSAT 2024.

• The examination will be organized in two sets of dates, BITSAT Session 1 and BITSAT Session 2, separated by a gap of a few weeks. The candidate can choose the Center, the Day, and slot of his/her convenience to take the test, as described later in this document.

• A candidate may opt to appear twice, even at the time of the first application. Such a candidate will then choose one slot from the first set of dates and another from the second.

• A candidate may opt for any session 1 or 2 or ‘BOTH’. III

• A candidate may also choose to appear the second time after the first appearance. To facilitate this process, there will be a period during which candidates who have appeared during Session 1 but had not originally exercised the option to appear twice, will be allowed to apply to appear a second time. Those who do not apply/appear in Session 1 can also apply to appear in Session 2 during the second application window as mentioned below.

• The application window will reopen immediately for Session 2 after the first date of Session 1 of BITSAT. • A candidate who chooses to appear twice will have to pay a sum of Rs. 5400 (for a male candidate) and Rs. 4400 (for a female candidate). • A candidate who opts to appear once (Session 1 or Session 2), will pay a fee of Rs. 3400 (for a male candidate) and Rs. 2900 (for a female candidate).

• If a candidate who opts to appear to Session 1 only, chooses then to apply separately to appear a second time (Session 2), then he/she will have to pay an additional sum of Rs. 2000 (for a male candidate) and Rs. 1500 (for a female candidate).

• The application fee is non-refundable and non-transferrable.

• For a candidate who has appeared twice in BITSAT-2024, and then seeks admission to any of the First Degree programmes in BITS Pilani, the higher of the two scores will be considered for admission.
