BITSAT Eligibility Criteria


BITS Admission Test (BITSAT) is an online test conducted by The Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) for the admission to Integrated First Degree Programs offered at various campuses of BITS. Certain eligibility requirements are specified to apply for this exam. Various integrated first degree programs offered by BITS are given below.

B.E (Hons)

  • Chemical
  • Civil
  • Computer Science
  • Electrical and Electronics
  • Electronics and Instrumentation
  • Mechanical
  • Manufacturing

B.Pharm (Hons)

M.Sc (Hons)

  • Biological Sciences
  • Chemistry
  • Economics
  • Mathematics
  • Physics

M.Sc (Tech)

  • General Studies
  • Finance
  • Information Systems

Admission to any of these programs is based on the score obtained in the BITSAT. Exception will be given for the toppers in Board Examination.

Qualifying Examination

Candidates who are applying for BITSAT should pass their plus two examination with the subjects Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. Such candidates should also need to obtain minimum seventy five percent marks while combining the marks of the subjects Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. Sixty percent marks are also needed for each subject separately. Candidates should have passed the qualifying examination from any recognized central or state board.

Who are eligible to apply?

English proficiency is a must for the candidates who want to apply for the BITSAT. Those who have passed their plus two examination just recently can only apply for the BITSAT. Candidates who are appearing for the final examination of 12th standard can also attend the BITSAT. But they should fulfill the specified eligibility criteria during the admission procedure. Students who are currently pursuing their studies in BITS at any of its campus are not allowed to apply for this exam. Special consideration is given for the candidates who have secured top marks in their Board Examination. Such candidates can seek admission to any integrated first degree program directly without BITSAT score. They should attach the letter from the board which declares them as the topper in the concerned stream while sending the specified documents for the admission. Latest performance of the candidates who have taken more than one attempt in their 12th class examination will be considered for the admission to any integrated first degree program offered at BITS. If two or more candidates have obtained same BITSAT score, then their marks in Mathematics will be considered for admission. If they obtain same score again then marks of Physics will be considered. Again their marks obtained in Chemistry will be considered to eliminate further tie. Marks of the qualifying examination will be considered if all these considerations are not enough to make any decision.

    My son has passed the Intermediate Exam conducted by the AP state board. He has secured 93.5% overall and a group (MPC) percentage of 95%. This year, unlike the previous years the state government has approved for students to go for betterment. He is planning to improve his marks in Physics and intends to go for betterment, exam scheduled 16 May 12.

    2. Does this in any way make him in-eligible for BITSAT-2012?
