    BITSAT 2021 Preparation Guide

    BITSAT 2021 Preparation Guide

    BITSAT preparation requires a lot of practice and patience. You might not need a lot of extra books for preparation, but some practice books would help. The BITSAT explorers by MTG and Arihant are the best ones to practice questions for BITSAT.

    The test series will help you in adapting to the test platform. It will help you in increasing your speed and judging yourself on an all India level as well.

    The level of preparation can be analysed by you aptly and also this will help you to improve your BITSAT scores with every mock test you take so that you can achieve a score above 280 or more. Once you start scoring such a score in the test series, you will be much more confident and you will have a high chance of going beyond 350 too in the actual exam. Also it is important that you must focus on increasing your speed, this you can do by starting experimenting the bonus questions too.

    What material to follow and use?

    For BITSAT, there is no specific theory book to follow. There are no actual past year papers too because BITS doesn’t release any of them and the ones available in the market are approximations of the actual BITSAT.

    You should study the NCERT books thoroughly for BITSAT. They need to be studied for JEE Main as well so you can do them while completing your JEE syllabus. There are no separate theory books for BITSAT apart from the NCERT. 

    The BITSAT explorer has a concise theory which will help you in revising for BITSAT. The questions are most apt for BITSAT and would be of a slightly higher level than the actual exam. You can practice a bit of logical reasoning and English also from the book. This can be done when a few weeks are left for the exam. To increase the speed, one can do the time bound questions on the BITSAT explorer. 

    Apart from the BITSAT explorer, doing mock tests is the most important part. Don’t take a very tough one because then you won’t be able to increase your speed. 

    On the basis of the syllabus of the BITSAT latest published on the website the books are selected. Also there are other factors like feature quality questions, tips and tricks, sample papers etc.

    BITSAT 2021 Preparation Tips

    In the initial 3 months of your preparation, focus on revising JEE and BITSAT syllabus. You can solve the BITSAT explorer every day for 2 hours. Once you are confident about your preparation and roughly 2 months are left, you can start doing mock tests. Start with free tests first and then buy one series which you can do properly for the month ahead. Initially do one test every month and when the last few weeks are left, you can do 2 tests a week. After giving the mock tests, it is important to take ample time for analysing the test that you take so that you can see what to improve in other tests and you can overcome your weak points. It is very important to analyse your given mock tests so that you can revise accordingly. 

    1. Short notes should be made which are covering all the important concepts and points. 
    2. Solve past exam papers and sample papers.
    3. The syllabus of BITSAT 2021 should be checked online before starting the preparation of exams. 
    4. Follow the test series and analyse each test.
    5. Focus on the part which is not understandable by the candidates and prepare it accordingly. 

    How do I prepare for BITSAT?

    1. The Prep Phase: Read NCERT books. These simple books should not be ignored by the candidates. All doubts related to concepts are in this book to help you.
    2. Time management: Many questions tend to be formula-based. Identify shortcuts to solve complicated problems. This will help you save your time.
    3. Determine your strengths and weaknesses: Improving the weaker topics and revising them everyday will help to crack the BITSAT 2021. BITSAT 2021 will be an online (Computer-based) test. In BITSAT, out of the 150 questions, 25 are reserved for Logical Reasoning and English Proficiency.

    • Earlier papers being easy is just a myth.
    • Make strategies to solve the problem. 
    • DO NOT attempt questions blindly.
    1. Always keep track of time: Take mock tests back to back. According to experts, while taking mock tests, if your score is in the range of 350 - 380, you will have a strong understanding of most of the topics. Save your time for the last 12 questions to improve your scores a little higher.
    2. Solve previous years’ question papers: This will help you get an idea about the type of questions you are likely to get in the exam. It will save your time by not just reading lots of books. Attempt some questions on logical reasoning. Try to attempt the previous 2-3 years' questions.
