BITSAT – 2022 Test Format:-

Each session of BITSAT-2022 will be of a total of 3-hour duration (without a break). The sessions will consist of four parts:

Part I: Physics

Part II: Chemistry

Part III: (a) English Proficiency and (b) Logical Reasoning

Part IV: Mathematics or Biology (For B. Pharm candidates)

All questions will be of objective type (multiple choice questions); each question with a choice of four answers, only one being correct choice. Each correct answer fetches 3 marks, while each incorrect answer has a penalty of 1 mark (-1 mark).

No marks are awarded for questions not attempted. While the candidate can skip a question, the computer will not allow the candidate to choose more than one option as the correct answer.

There will be 130 questions. There is no time limit for individual parts of the test. The candidate can go back and change any of his/her answers to the 130 questions.

If a candidate answers all the 130 questions (without skipping any question), the candidate will have an option of attempting 12 (twelve) additional questions if there is still time left.

These extra questions will be from Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics/Biology, and Logical reasoning only; three questions from each one of them.

Further, once the candidate has opted for extra questions, he/she cannot go back for correction of any of the earlier answered 130 questions.
