BITSAT exam pattern is such that objective-type multiple choice questions are asked and candidates are evaluated on the basis of how many answers they give correct.
It is a three hour duration computer based online engineering entrance exam which is divided into four sections/parts. Each section has questions from different subjects such as Physics, Chemistry, English Proficiency and Logical Reasoning as well as Mathematics. BITSAT question paper consists of questions in the above mentioned subjects taught to students as part of their Class XII syllabus.
The exam question paper will include:
A total of 150 questions wherein candidates need to select the correct answer from four options. For every correct answer candidates will be awarded three marks. For every wrong answer one mark will be deducted.

These additional questions will be such that four questions each will be asked from Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics sections only. However, any candidate who chooses to answer these extra 12 exam questions will not be allowed to go back to the original BITSAT exam and make any changes in the 150 answers he answered previously.
The section wise break up of questions as per BITSAT exam pattern are as follows:
|EXAMINATION SECTIONS||SUBJECTS||NO. OF QUESTIONS|
|Part III||Logical Reasoning||10|
Total Number of Questions
BITSAT question paper will have all questions only in English language. Candidates appearing for this engineering entrance exam will be given different question papers and these exam papers will be randomly selected from a large database of exam papers by the computer.
