Mistakes to avoid while preparing for BITSAT 2022

It is important for candidates to be aware of the minor mishappenings which are likely to occur due to carelessness. It may happen that at times, candidates do not understand a topic and they feel like switching to a new one. But this is where the zeal should come out. In this article, CollegeDekho focuses on some of the common mistakes that candidates are likely to make while preparing for BITSAT exam. Along with it, the best possible solutions to score well in BITSAT are also provided. 

Note that, only those candidates who secure good marks will be eligible to get admissions to their desired BITSAT participating college


  1. Not studying BITSAT Syllabus 2022

The very first mistake candidates make while preparing for BITSAT 2022 exam is not studying the whole syllabus. Start your preparation early and study the whole BITSAT 2022 syllabus, as authorities can make paper from any part and if you didn't studied it you will lose a lot of marks. You must at least get an understanding of the concepts of various topics of the syllabus so that you can attempt the question in the exam. 

  1. Focusing on Theoretical Knowledge

The other frequent mistakes that candidates make is they mug up the theoretical part and understand formulas of practical questions but don’t practice it. This can cause a lot of trouble in solving mathematical problems in the real-time exam. As, you will not get an idea of how to start a question and how to derive a conclusion from the formulae. So, make sure that you attempt the practical questions while preparing so that you get the rhythm of solving the practical questions and complete them in time.

  1. Stressing and Overthinking

Being negative while preparing for the exam is one common phenomenon among students. Candidates get too negative and start overthinking what if they will not be able to complete the papers, and what if questions don't come from the syllabus studied. All these thoughts are useless and the possibility of such things happening is not true if you have prepared well for the exam. So, don't overthink and keep a positive attitude while preparing for the BITSAT exam. 

  1. Not Attempting the  BITSAT Mock Tests and Previous Year Papers

Don’t forget to attempt the mock tests and previous year's papers while preparing for the exam. Candidates should attempt as many BITSAT mock test as they can. The mock test will give a real-time exam experience and you can work on your shortcomings beforehand. Practice mock test paper series and BITSAT previous year papers before the examinations so that you are aware of the type and difficulty level of questions asked in BITSAT and may prepare accordingly. 

  1. Skipping Revisions

Candidates should not skip revisions. Months of planning might give the sense of false assurance. It is beneficial to revise all topics. In order to cover the BITSAT 2022 syllabus in a short period (from the topics already covered), candidates may miss a few points or exercises, and revision aids in revisiting those areas. Also while revision, candidates don’t revise the whole syllabus and only a part of it. So, revise the complete syllabus.

Tips and tricks to score good marks in BITSAT 2022

Candidates appearing for the BITSAT exam 2022 should focus on scoring the cutoff marks which is not easy for everyone to score. But, with the right preparation strategy, you can score the BITSAT cutoff 2022 easily. Besides a solid BITSAT preparation strategy, we have provided some smart tips and tricks that will help you score good marks in BITSAT 2022 exam. 

Avoid Picking New topics

When you have just two days remaining before the exam, do not start with a new topic. You should certainly revise the formulae and the old and complex concepts for each chapter. In fact, you should have the formulae for all the subjects at your fingertips, as nearly seventy percent of the questions asked in the exams will be based on formulae. We, however, do not advise beginning a new chapter at the last minute as this can make you feel nervous and stressed

Work on Time Management Skills

To ace the exam you must work on your time accuracy so that you solve the paper within the stipulated time and don’t miss out on any question unattempted. BITSAT prioritizes speed. It is critical to prepare ahead of time how much time you will devote to each section of the BITSAT exam. When creating the time distribution, it is a good idea to keep grace time in mind for solving difficult questions.

Do BITSAT Slot Booking Effectively  

Choose the last slot for yourself while selecting your chosen slot for the BITSAT exam. Because there is no chapter-wise weightage, you will be unable to determine which chapter is more significant than another. Take advantage of this extra time by observing the questions given for each area on each day of the exam. This will provide you a sense of the difficulty level of the questions being asked in the session as well as the topics from which the questions are being asked, allowing you to brush up on the crucial topics at the last minute.

Take Enough Sleep and Maintain a Balance Diet

There is so much to study before examinations, students sometimes turn to energy drinks to study late at night. It is advised to avoid such beverages and make sure you have had enough sleep before taking the exam. Undersleeping might cause your brain to work overtime. This may impede you from memorizing equations and accurately answering questions, even if you have already rehearsed similar questions. As a result, this is one of the most prevalent BITSAT blunders to avoid.
