How many times you can give the exam?
Only those students who have cleared 10+2 board examinations in the previous year or are appearing for their board examinations in the current year are eligible for BITSAT. Students are also not allowed to give BITSAT twice in the same year.
Hence, a candidate can only appear twice for BITSAT – once in the year he or she give his or her 10+2 board examinations and again in the next year.
Are calculators allowed?
BITS does not allow calculators, logarithmic tables or mobiles inside the test centers during its admission test. Candidates should only carry their Hall Ticket and pen inside the center. If you need blank sheets for rough work, they will be provided by the test centers.
All BITSAT test centers are closely monitored for security, candidates’ identity and activities. Everything that happens in the test centers is recorded using close circuit TV cameras or web cameras. Anyone who violates any of the test center rules will be automatically debarred from the test.
