Ques. Which one is better, dropping a year for the BITSAT and JEE, or joining universities such as LPU or Amity?

● Top Answer By on 12 Feb 21

Ans. Every candidate has their own perspectives and reasons for dropping a year or opting for a degree in any institute. It entirely depends upon your thoughts and decisions, and what you actually want from your career. The points mentioned below can be considered as a set of guidelines that would help to choose the right path. There are several choices which you can make in case of admission. You can prefer a good renowned government college and take any available stream in it, or a good private college (BITS, Thapar, etc) and choose your favorite stream. Considering the fact that you are comfortable with the high fees of the private institutes. Having an educational gap (drop) of one year is not a bad thing for a future career. Most candidates get to learn a lot of things from the self-available time, even some have genuine reasons for the drop. So, if you are extremely passionate about a stream, it is absolutely all-right to drop for a year. Check for the 50% quota for insiders in your home state NIT. If present, it will increase the chances of getting some stream in it. Usually, it is considered that the stream matters much less. What matters is the college name tag. There are several other institutes like Punjab University, UIET, etc which provide good infrastructure and opportunities. JAC is a committee for counseling in some good institutes in Chandigarh. These are some of the basics tips that would help you in the decision-making process.Read more

Ques. Which is better: JEE or BITSAT?

● Top Answer By Aniket Atul Mahulikar on 20 Jan 21

Ans. Both JEE and BITSAT are competitive entrances and comparing the two is not a good decision. Instead, try to focus on understanding the basics and concepts since the syllabus for the two entrances is pretty much the same. If you prepare religiously for JEE Advanced then you will be able to ace all engineering entrance exams including JEE Main and BITSAT. The table given below gives a brief comparison of the exams: Exam JEE Advanced BITSAT Mode of Exam Computer-based Test Computer-based Test Duration 3 Hours 3 Hours Type of Questions Multiple Choice Questions, Numerical Aptitude Questions Multiple Choice Questions Negative Marking Yes Yes  Syllabus Physics, Chemistry, Maths Physics, Chemistry, Maths, English and Logical Reasoning  JEE Preparation: JEE Advanced paper includes questions primarily from Physics, Chemistry and Maths, thus, try to give these topics enough time and practice.  While it is best to focus on JEE Advanced, it is equally important to prepare for BITSAT since the exam syllabus contains not only Physics, Chemistry, and Maths but also English and Logical Reasoning. BITSAT Preparation: Cracking BITSAT is all about technique and speed so try to practice online mock tests, previous year papers, and cover topics like English and Logical Reasoning to score better in the exams.  You should devote at least 3 months to BITSAT, three months are enough if you have a clear understanding of your basics and a strong foundation. Try not to compare the two exams; instead, focus on clearing your basics with the aim of cracking JEE Advanced so that you can score well in both JEE and BITSAT.Read more

Ques. Which books have you used for the JEE Main and the BITSAT?

● Top Answer By Sudeshna Bhar on 20 Jan 21

Ans. There are several books you can refer to for the preparation of JEE Main and BITSAT exams. But the most important thing to do is to focus on NCERTs and practice online mock tests, previous year question papers, and question banks for every subject. It is equally important to study the exam pattern, type of questions, and syllabus of JEE Main and BITSAT before purchasing any reference book.  Subjectwise Books for JEE Main and BITSAT- Physics: Concepts of Physics by H.C. Verma: The best book for Physics. The book contains several practice questions for you to solve. Fundamental Physics by Halliday, Resnick, and Walker: It contains all the relevant topics. Understanding Physics by DC Pandey: This is the ideal book for JEE entrances; it covers all the relevant questions and topics.  Prep Guide to BITSAT by Arihant publications is a good book for BITSAT. Chemistry: Physical Chemistry: Modern Approach to Chemical Calculations by RC Mukherjee. It contains several practice questions for your reference. Organic Chemistry: A book by Paula Y. Bruice: It is the best for clearing doubts and building a strong foundation in Organic Chemistry. Inorganic Chemistry: Concise Inorganic Chemistry by J.D.Lee: The book covers all the relevant topics and contains several questions The Cengage set of 6 books by KS Verma. Mathematics: New Pattern JEE Mathematics Arihant Publications by SK Goyal. Algebra, Different Calculus, Integral Calculus, Vector, and 3D Geometry by Arihant Publication. A problem book in mathematical Analysis by G.N. Berman Mathematics for JEE Advanced by G.Tewani IIT Mathematics for JEE by M.L. Khanna. Play with graphs by Amit Agrawal. Algebra by G Tewani All these books are great reference books for BITSAT and JEE Main but you must try to focus on NCERTs and practicing questions.Read more

Ques. Which exam is tougher: VITEEE, the JEE Main or the BITSAT?

● Top Answer By Ankita Sarkar on 20 Jan 21

Ans. VITEEE, JEE Main, and BITSAT are conducted for undergraduate engineering courses. Every person has a different opinion on which exam is the toughest, thus, rather than worrying about the exam’s difficulty, focus on your preparation. JEE Main:  It is one of the most competitive exams in India; it is the gateway to prestigious institutes like IITs and NITs.  Every year, over 8 lakhs applicants appear for the exam which makes JEE Main tougher and harder to crack than BITSAT or VITEEE. VITEEE: It is conducted annually by VIT University, Vellore for admissions to engineering courses.  The university registered over 2 lakh candidates for VITEEE which makes the entrance paper less competitive and easier than BITSAT and JEE Main.  Nevertheless, scoring in VITEEE is not easy. It requires dedication and practice. BITSAT:  BITSAT is conducted by BITS Pilani and witnesses over 3 lakh eligible candidates every year for entrance to their undergraduate courses.  It is a tricky exam. Acing BITSAT is all about technique and speed.  If you have a good understanding of all the concepts then you can easily score well in BiTSAT. The difficulty level of BITSAT and JEE Main is on par with one another. Comparison: The table below will give you a brief overview of the three examinations.  Exam VITEEE BITSAT JEE Main Mode of Exam Computer-based Test Computer-based Test Computer-based Test Duration 2. 5 Hours 3 Hours 3 Hours Total Questions 125 Questions 150 Questions 90 Questions Type of Questions Multiple Choice Questions Multiple Choice Questions Multiple Choice Questions and Numerical Aptitude Value Negative Marking No Yes  Yes Syllabus Physics, Chemistry, Maths, English, and Aptitude Physics, Chemistry, Maths, English and Logical Reasoning  Physics, Chemistry, and Maths Difficulty Level- BITSAT = JEE > VITEEE Total Questions- BITSAT > VITEEE > JEE Time- JEE = BITSAT > VITEEE Try not to stress about the level of difficulty of these entrance exams, rather focus on preparing, building a strong foundation.Read more

Ques. What is the difference between the syllabus of the BITSAT and the JEE?

● Top Answer By Sunil Sharma on 16 Jan 21

Ans. There are mainly 3 engineering entrance exams in India for candidates looking forward towards top engineering institutes in India. It includes JEE Main, JEE Advanced and BITSAT. Frankly speaking there isn’t much difference in the syllabus of all these entrance exams. The main difference is BITSAT focuses more on the candidate's speed and accuracy and on the other hand JEE focuses more on deep understanding of concepts. Furthermore BITSAT includes English & Logical Reasoning as well which is not the part of JEE.  BITSAT -  It is an online admission test to get enrolled in engineering courses in different BITS colleges. It includes English and Logical Reasoning along with PCM. A total of 150 and 12 extra questions are provided. Only 2 attempts are given to clear BITSAT. Direct Admission is given to Board Toppers. Previous year’s questions are not available officially. JEE Main and Advanced -  JEE Main and Advanced are admission tests for engineering institutes like IIT, NIT, IISc, IISER, IIST, RGIPT, etc. Candidates need to appear in JEE Main to qualify for JEE Advanced. It only consists of PCM questions. No extra questions provided. Candidates can clear JEE Main in 3 and JEE Advanced in 2 attempts. Previous year’s question papers are easily available for practice.  JEE is slightly tougher than BITSAT as candidates need to have thorough knowledge of physics, chemistry and mathematics subjects. The set time for any BITSAT candidate to mark the right answer is approx 72 second which is about 2 min in JEE. So if you’re preparing for JEE then you’ll automatically cover all BITSAT syllabus as well, but keep it in mind that you need to prepare for English & Logical Reasoning as well and for that you need to plan your time table accordingly. Read more
