    BITSAT 2020 : Syllabus Highlights

    Mathematicsconsists of 45 questions. This section can be said moderate to difficult on the scale of level of difficulty of exam.
    Biologyincludes 30 chapters from the CBSE syllabi of both class 11 and 12. In the Biology section, the topics from Class 11 hold more weightage than those of class 12. We infer that the maximum questions come from principles of inheritance and variation followed by molecular basis of inheritance and morphology of flowering plants.
    Chemistryconsists of 18 major topics which dominate the section with most of the questions. The maximum questions are asked from chemical bonding and molecular structure followed by equilibrium and hydrocarbons.
    Physicscomprises 23 chapters. This section is considered one of the toughest thresholds in BITSAT by many of the aspirants. Most of the questions are asked from Current Electricity, Semi- Co nductors and laws of motion.

    This section is sub-divided into two more sections- English Proficiency and Logical Reasoning. This section consists of 45 questions from English Proficiency and 10 questions from Logical Reasoning. 

    BITSAT 2020 Syllabus: Physics

    Physics section is the toughest section as claimed by candidates appearing for the exam. Here are a few important key points about BITSAT 2020 Physics Syllabus:

    There are a total of 40 MCQs in Physics section which carries 120 marks. Maximum weightage is given to Mechanical properties followed by Current Electricity as inferred by the previous year analysis. Less number of questions are asked from Kinematics, AC and Waves.
