Number of Questions 150 Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs)
Sections in Question Paper
  1. Physics,
  2. Chemistry,
  3. Logical reasoning and English proficiency
  4. Mathematics/Biology (For B. Pharm candidates)
Duration of Examination 3 hours
Marking scheme Every correct answer will be given 3 marks, while incorrect response will fetch -1 and unattempted questions were given no marks.

In the below table you can find Distribution of Questions from subject wise.

Subjects Number of questions Maximum marks
Physics 40 120
Chemistry 40 120
English Proficiency 15 45
Logical Reasoning 10 30
Mathematics/ Biology 45 135
Total 150 450

There is no time limit for individual parts of the test. The candidate can go back and change any of his/her answers among the 150 questions.

If a candidate answers all the 150 questions (without skipping any question), the candidate will have an option of attempting 12 (twelve) extra questions, if there is still time left. These extra questions will be from Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics/Biology only; four questions from each part. Further, once the candidate has opted for extra questions, he/she cannot go back for correction of any of the earlier answered 150 questions.

The questions are so designed that a good student will be able to answer 150 questions in 180 minutes. The extra questions (a maximum of 12) will give a chance to highly meritorious candidates to score higher. However, candidates should keep in mind the fact that there is negative marking for wrong answers and any attempt to answer the questions by pure guessing of the answers is not likely to have any advantage, but may result in a reduction in the total score.

The questions will be selected at random from a large question bank. Different candidates will get different question sets. An expert committee will ensure that the question sets are of comparable difficulty level, content, question type etc. In this matter, the decision of the expert committee will be final and binding on the candidate.

All the questions and instructions of the test will be in English only. Candidates should bring a pen for the purpose of rough work, signing etc. Blank sheets for rough work will be provided, if required. Calculators and logarithmic tables are not allowed in the test centers. Candidates are not allowed to bring any other personal belongings such as mobiles.

Each candidate who registers for BITSAT-2023 will be instructed to download a ‘Hall Ticket’. Candidates with the hall ticket only will be allowed inside the Test centers. All centers are closely monitored for security reasons and candidates’ identity and activities will be recorded using web cameras and/or closed circuit TV cameras fitted in the test centers. Candidate’s finger print and photograph will be taken at the time of the test (BITSAT-2023) and will be matched at the time of admission at particular BITS campus. Anyone violating the rules of the test center will not be allowed to continue with the test and will automatically be disqualified.
