# BITSAT -2015

Hi guys.. Now that jee main is over and we all pretty much know our results I wanted to know if there is anyone studying especially for bits and if so what are you doing differently.

Also any advice from seniors and other members of the brilliant community will be appreciated.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

So is English tough ?? Is that what you mean ?

- 6 years, 3 months ago

offcourse ... I'am too weak .... Since they ask very tough word meanings .. which is tangent overr my head ....

I'am expecting maximum to maximum 25/75 in (LR+English) I always get less than this in my Bits Test(s)

- 6 years, 3 months ago

Well my English isn't really weak so I can't help you much but there are books you can refer to and practice from..let me know if you want the names..

- 6 years, 3 months ago

As in? I didn't understand what you mean?

- 6 years, 3 months ago

Well , I am one of those people who are "specifically" studying for BITSAT .

Btw , I'd like to first hear from the others before giving out my opinion on this . Hope you understand .

- 6 years, 3 months ago

Any light that you'd like to shed upon this discussion . This discussion really doesn't seem like one , it's too dry .

- 6 years, 3 months ago

It's not dry..: / It's just to the point.. :)

- 6 years, 3 months ago

Sorry ,that's not what I meant. Just the people participating were less .

So how are you preparing for BITSAT ?

- 6 years, 3 months ago

Till now I just have a book my cousin gave me...an Arihant publication ...but I wanted to know where else I can prepare from... Also which coaching centre is good for their online test series..

- 6 years, 3 months ago

finally !! I found someone... Everyone else is like study for advanced and bits will be easy then..I'm tired of telling people I don't want to study for advanced..

- 6 years, 3 months ago

This time are you focusing on getting those 12 extra questions for a bonus??

- 6 years, 3 months ago

Personally I feel those extra ques decision should be taken on that day itself...after Jee I've learnt not to rely too much on past paper scores or patterns so for me I will chose on that day itself..

- 6 years, 3 months ago

Well I am also all up to BITSAT now as I choked up very badly in my JEE due to health reasons..

Personally I am just going through all my classes modules and this time and going for speed this time as its BITS so its speed that matters. And then question papers in the last 15 days. Also I have heard there are some good prep books for BITS, maybe I'll try them out if I get time.

- 6 years, 3 months ago

These link are pretty good ...thanks.. Yes I'm also doing that and I'm also focussing now a lot on ncert...to try and rem small facts which bits tends to ask ...I'm not sure how to really rem it all but I'm trying...

- 6 years, 3 months ago

I ordered A complete success package for online BITSAT 2015 by arihant. It's a very good book actually. Book focuses on question of BITSAT type, sample papers and CD are provided for test so that we can be familiar with the exact questions and time limit. I recommend this book who want to specially spend time on preparing for Bitsat.

- 6 years, 3 months ago

Yep..that's the book I had mentioned...seems like everyone is buying it.. : p

- 6 years, 3 months ago

No not much. I downloaded some sample papers from scribd for BITSAT, that's it.

- 6 years, 3 months ago

Are you doing anything other than that book? Like test series and stuff?

- 6 years, 3 months ago

What discussion are you people talking on...brilliant seems dead somehow..

- 6 years, 3 months ago

yeah u are right its went totally silent as it used to be before.... and it seems to me its gonna stay like this only for quite a time... thats really disheartening... $\large \large \ddot \frown$

- 6 years, 3 months ago

Time for us to buck up then

- 6 years, 3 months ago

It's because of all the entrances @Shweta Salelkar . Especially JEE. It's the same even in the real world.. it just went totally silent.. :/

- 6 years, 3 months ago

true

- 6 years, 3 months ago

All of you can practice some questions here. Its easy but you can expect this level of questions in BITSAT

- 6 years, 3 months ago

good questions... (thumbs up)

- 6 years, 3 months ago

So how's BITSAT Prep going on ? I'm tired and need a break ! Doing so many questions and that too at a quick pace , tires you out .

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Yeah....my preps ok...I guess... Where are you guys doing papers from and how much are you getting in them?(approx)

- 6 years, 2 months ago

RIght now I'm solving the Arihant Package for BITSAT .

I have solved just 3 papers till now , and my scores lie between 310 to 350 . But I really think that to get selected in the Pilani campus , I must get 350+ .

- 6 years, 2 months ago

is it of previous years paper or sample paper?

- 6 years, 2 months ago

BITSAT Papers of 2007 , 2011 and 2013

- 6 years, 2 months ago

ohk....good score btw

- 6 years, 2 months ago

No they're not ! I even got scolded by my dad for not getting 350+ .

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Oh well I'm aiming for goa campus ....so 300+ should be fine right? Also what is the time limit your keeping while solving Arihant...?

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Yeah Shweta , 300+ is a good score for Goa Campus (why do u want to go to Goa ? ;) )

Last year a friend of mine got into the Goa campus with a score of 290s , so it should be easy for you .

I don't have a rigid time limit.

Chemistry: 45 minutes Maths:60 minutes English and Logical Reasoning: 10 minutes max. Physics: Remaining time

Frankly speaking , I have really less knowledge about this time limit thing . Can you tell me about yours ?It'll definitely help me out :D

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Because I live in goa... :/ 290... Ok then...will try to manage that much... I'm at 275 now.. I don't keep a time limit that's why I was wondering...but yeah I keep around your time ...only exchange phy with chem...

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Can u plz tell in which branch is ur friend have...... .?

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Oh also when are u guys giving the exam...as in the date... Questions repeat right? On random days? Since its computerized....

- 6 years, 2 months ago

I have mine on the 27th , as for the rest of your questions , sorry I have no idea .

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Mine is on 27th too

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Can anyone plz inform what is min. Score required to get into bits ...... All centres other than Dubai ........ Plzzzz ... My score in mains is just 157 :(((( ..... I think less then all brillanters here ..... But guys plz inform me as soon as possible .....

- 6 years, 2 months ago

I think it's 280... For goa / Hyderabad...but I'm not sure.. Ur mains score is more than mine so don't worry...

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Guys can one of u plzzz make another note where we all can discuss about their bitsat scores ,,..... Mine is on 27th may ......... Thank u in adv.

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Why not use this one itself ? This one's still way too lighter than most of the other notes .

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Yes I could ..... But as if a moderator try it out then their will be a lot of people's participating in it ........ But if I do it then their may not be many as moderators could do that ........ By more people's we will better understand the current situation going in bitsat. ....... This is acc. To me .........

- 6 years, 2 months ago

How many of you guys given your bitsat ? How much do you got ?

How was LR and English section ?

Should I go for 12 extra questions ? what are thier difficultie level ?

what extra topics are covered in bitsat , which are not in jee Advance syllabus ? Specially in chemistry , does NCERT , theory chapters are usefull ? @Raghav Vaidyanathan @Azhaghu Roopesh M @Shweta Salelkar @Nishant Rai

- 6 years, 2 months ago

361.

In LR diagram problems were shit! No logic in it(no clear logic was observable). I'm weak in english so for me it was like ,to go with this option or that, both feels equally satisfying in few problems.

If you can attempt 130 or 135+ problems I think you should attempt all because, even if you made all 15-20 problems incorrect you will get -15 or -20 for that, but in 12 problems most of them are real lollipops(this was according to my friend) so you can easily score above 20 in them. My bad I should have gone for them but ok I am satified.

I don't know about syllabus but in my paper there were 3-4 problems in which I was clueless, 1 in physics (it was about prism spectrometer) and 2-3 in chemistry(somethingto do with nasty names I don't remember), what I feel is you shouldn't worry much about the syllabus.

And most important, yes, they are my marks in mains, sorry for late reply :(

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Your friend attempted the 12 extra qs, ryt? How much did he/she score? Also, can you find out whether the computer displayed that your friend had attempted 150 questions only? Or did it also include the extra questions that your friend had attempted? I attempted 150 and 6 more from the 12, and this was what it showed me in the end:

Attempted: 150 Incorrect: 12 Marks:402

I did not realize it then.. but I'm worried now... I think I should have gotten more...

- 6 years, 2 months ago

He got 312 marks. I saw him after months, he was my classmate actually, there is no way I can contact him since he is not giving advanced so he won't come to class and I dont have him contact number sorry :( I m sure any of friend much have taken those 12 problems you can ask them about it.

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Can you please tell what are exact clueless problems in chemistry ? So that I can study it from ncert .. Since mine is tommorrow .. !

I'am too weak in english although ... So should I guess answer in it , for attempting those extra 12 questions ? I'am confident for P, C , M to get almost full (if don't do careless mistakes) , but scared from english and those cluless problems ...

Also what time duration does each section takes you in exam ? Please tell , so that I can mentally prepare myself , thanks a lot .. @Krishna Sharma

- 6 years, 2 months ago

As I said I don't remember the problems but I m sure that they were not from the NCERT.

Before guessing you should see how many problem you have attempted, and do calculation accordingly(to attempt or not).

You will be left with ample time in the end, I was left with 50min after attempting the paper then I gone through the marked problems which took about 20-25 min. So no need to worry about the time.

- 6 years, 2 months ago

So I had given My Exam ! I got 408 , Paper was really easy , But English was too tough . I didn't attempt 8 question's in englishhhh and 2 question in LR (digram problems), they gone completely over to my head . But I'am happy by my accuracy as I did only 3 problems incorrect (which was also I guess are from chemistry) . But really I dissappointed that English put me down , otherwise I can score better .. Anyway I will fullfill rest in JEE

Nishu sharma

Congrats! well done!

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Thanks.. :) Same to you ATB for JEE

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Nice! Have you attempted those 12 extra problems? If yes how were they?

- 6 years, 2 months ago

As i said i leave 10 questions( 8 in english +2 in LR ) , So I'am unable to get "those extra question " .

- 6 years, 2 months ago

One of my friend did it , and got 438

- 6 years, 2 months ago

@Nishu sharma

please tell us about the question paper. were questions numerical or conceptual( asked in more numbers)? overall difficulty level of paper? time management ? about chemistry section - organic or physical ( tougher, more in number , difficulty, etc)?

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Overall paper was easy , Bitsat paper was always easy , but the thing is you need to care of your stupid mistakes , like as not reading whole question completly , calc. mistake , overall you can say paper is " Farji " . If you were good in English and LR then you can really score very high ... And In my paper some organic question was tricky ... but most of question are named reaction which asked in indirect way .. There were more than 4 questions on solid state (str. of ZnS , NaCl , CaF2 etc...) From Biomolecules Vitamins section is covered ... Some question needs dirty calculation , for which better to not attempt in first time , leave them for later , as Time suffecient (if your English is good ) In physics there are many conceptual questions , NLM , waves play major role . Maths there were 4 or 5 seuence or series problem ... etc.

But overall paper was easy , Do not do it in rush , keep maintain your accuracy keeping time in mind . Don't try to attempt all questions in one go ... leave calc. question immedaitly for later (As I feel) ... Most important thing is to keep our emotions in control , this is very important for droppers , Since I'am also one of those ..

ATB for BITS and JEE

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Those who have answered the exam can u please see this paper and tell me whether the level in the exam is the same as this or tougher...don't include the extra 12 ques ok..

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Here is what I think about the paper in the link you have posted:

Mathematics: some questions are way too easy in the link, I think BITSAT will be in the level of moderate level questions in the paper you have posted. Of course, there will be some extremely easy ones, but not many.

Physiscs: Seems to be okay. But keep in mind that you will get theory/understanding questions. The link had just one theory problem in physics.

Chemistry: Seems to be okay. Organic chemistry might be a bit more difficult though. Some really odd questions may come from the ncert text book, but there's nothing to do about those.

Logic: I don't think there is a level for this thing... Logic is logic.. I think you can do it easily.

English: I think the BITSAT English paper was tougher and more confusing. The words which were asked are not as common as those asked in the paper. The reading comprehension is confusing as more than one option will be correct and we have to chose the most appropriate one.

Hope this helps @Shweta Salelkar

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Oh ok...thanks..😃 I had hoped it would be this level...but ok..

- 6 years, 2 months ago

will I got pilani in 320 marks ? 1st round ? 2nd ? 3rd ? which branch ? @Keshav Tiwari @Nishant Rai

- 6 years, 2 months ago

and finally I gave it today- 393 score completely unsatisfied expected>420.... but ok.....chalta hai...

- 6 years, 2 months ago

@Raghav Vaidyanathan Congrats for your incredible scores.

Did you stay in a hostel for the past 2 years?

- 6 years, 1 month ago

Thank you! My friend and classmate @Mohan Nandakumar got 412! (He doesn't like his marks being made public, exactly why I am doing it ;) )

And no, I did not stay in a hostel for the past two years. But I attended FIITJEE's integrated programme in school which was hardly 500m from my house.

- 6 years, 1 month ago

Thanks a ton for replying quickly.. Have you heard of brilliant pala coaching centre? How's it compared to fiitjee?

- 6 years, 1 month ago

Are you a malayalee too? Brilliant pala is good, but it is more medicine/JEE main oriented. whereas fiitjee is more JEE advanced oriented. If you think you can handle board exams and JEE main on your own while preparing for JEE advance, then fiitjee is good. Otherwise, if you want to concentrate more on JEE main/KEAM(kerala engineering) then Brilliant pala is better. Of course, travel time and distance also play a major role.

- 6 years, 1 month ago

Hi guys ..... Can u plz tell me that will I get dual course in goa as I m scoring just 290 .... :( ...... @Shweta Salelkar ..... U live in goa so can u tell plz ..... I have no idea about it ..... I will drop or go for dual if got it ,......... That's only what I finalise till now ...... What about all u guys

- 6 years, 1 month ago

Yes..sorry for the late reply.. U will definitely get dual degree....you might also get a four year course depending on your luck... You should go for dual

- 6 years, 1 month ago

I don't think it by looking on stats of bitsat 2015 which is available on official site
Have a look on this official page ....... http://www.bitsadmission.com/statistics.aspx

- 6 years, 1 month ago

I am writing BITSAT tomorrow.... Hope it goes well. Will tell you guys how it was. Is it true that we get our marks as soon as we finish our exam?

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Best of Luck bro!

Yes , you get your scores on the screen as soon as you finish your exam .

- 6 years, 2 months ago

I got 402... But it showed that i attempted 150 even after i attempted the extra questions... Idk...

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Wow...that's amazing...pilani for sure...congrats... Btw ...can u help us by telling us whatever ques u remember... Also how were the extra ques...were they tough?

- 6 years, 2 months ago

Thanks! I am on my way home.. Train.. Awful internet connection... I tried posting a problem and it got deleted when the page refreshed :/. My friend also wrote the exam.. And both of us are of the opinion that the 12 extra qs may not be worth it. I had only 8 mins when i completed the first 150 and that too because i guesses 2-3 qs in englinsh and chem. The 12 extra qs are mostly jee adv level(phy and math). But i found some very simple cbse level chem and math qs that i was able to solve.. If u r planning to take the 12 qs.. Be sure you do well in the first 150 and also look through all 12 and attempt the easy ones. I will post some qs if i get time after going home.. Maybe after jee adv.. U guys hav it on 27 i guess. Please ask your friends who have taken the +12 qs if the final page showed that they attempted more than 150... Cuz mine didnt and i think something's fishy.. Thanks again!

- 6 years, 2 months ago

i have mine on 26th may. please do post it on 25th may or 24th night . $\huge \ddot \smile$

- 6 years, 2 months ago

lol , you beat me in JEE but I won't let you do so in BITSAT . So 402 will be my target , and not just 350+ .

- 6 years, 2 months ago

I'm sure you will Roopesh! :) I am sorry for the late replies.. My exam was from 12:30 to 15:30.. And then I had a train to catch.. I am travelling to Kochi now from Trivandrum. Using brilliant on my phone too.. So my capabilities are limited.

- 6 years, 2 months ago

With your blessings , I'll surely do wonders sir ! ;)

- 6 years, 2 months ago

@Azhaghu Roopesh M can you tell how u got the line in your above comment above "ATB for JEE Adv."?/

- 6 years, 2 months ago

I also want to know.

- 6 years, 2 months ago

@Raghav Vaidyanathan use this for the horizontal line.
