BITSAT Preparation Strategy & Study Plan (6 Months, 2 Months)

Birla Institute of Technology and Science Aptitude Test (BITSAT) preparation strategy will help those who dream of pursuing Engineering from one of the BITS campuses - Pilani, Hyderabad and Goa. Counted among the most competitive exams in the country, BITSAT is conducted once annually by Birla Institute of Technology and Science in online mode. The competitive nature of the BITSAT exam can be deduced from the fact that roughly 70 students compete for a single seat which makes the preparation strategy for BITSAT 2020 even more important....

With so much competition for every seat, the BITSAT 2020 aspirants might wonder how should they start preparing for BITSAT 2020 and when should they start preparing for BITSAT 2020 entrance exam. Usually, experts suggest - the earlier the better which means to succeed in BITSAT entrance exam, the aspirants must start preparing for the same at least 6 to 8 months before the date of the exam. CollegeDekho has prepared an extensive preparation strategy for BITSAT 2020 which includes both long term preparation strategy for BITSAT 2020 and short term preparation strategy for BITSAT 2020 along with several other suggestions to provide the right guidance to those who do not want to see their dream of studying in one of the BITS campuses perish. 

How to Prepare for BITSAT in Six Months?

Given below is the BITSAT 2020 long term preparation strategy for those who want to start preparing for BITSAT 2020 entrance exam immediately while the exam date is still 7 to 8 months away. The long term preparation strategy for BITSAT 2020 is further divided into two parts where one part focuses on the suitable preparation strategy for those who have dropped a year for BITSAT 2020 entrance exam and the other part for class XIIth students who want to appear in next year’s BITSAT exam after appearing for their Board examination:

BITSAT Six-Month Preparation Strategy for Class XIIth Passouts

Class XIIth passouts refer to those who have already appeared in their respective class XIIth Board Exams and cleared it but want to appear in the BITSAT entrance exam next year. Here is how such students must prepare for the BITSAT entrance exam:

  • Stay Focussed: Counted among the top 10 toughest Engineering Entrance Exam in India, success will come only to those who are dedicated and tenacious. With almost 7 to 8 months to go for the BITSAT 2020 entrance exam, there will be times when the students will get fed up of re-reading the same things over and over again but they must remember that every time they go through a topic, it will enhance their understanding of the topic

  • Proper Planning: It is Universally accepted that no one can reach the pinnacle of success without proper planning. Planning will include how the students segregate the time equally which will enable them to equally concentrate on each subject. It will also include how they plan to work on their weak areas which, due to ample time, can be sorted out in a manner that even after devoting extra hours for the weak areas they do not lose their mojo over their strengths. The students must remember that they cannot drop their plans midway as it will jeopardize their chances of securing a seat in one of the BITS campuses.

  • Practise is the Key to Success: Without practice, the BITSAT aspirants can never score marks which will help them get into one of the three BITS campuses for studying Engineering. Practise becomes an important component of the BITSAT preparation strategy because only through constant practice, the students can attempt all the questions correctly in the given time period. Previous year BITSAT toppers also suggest that to master the technique of exam-taking, one must possess two valuable qualities in them - accuracy and speed which can only be achieved through rigorous practise

  • Mock Tests: To succeed in BITSAT 2020 exam, the students have to solve enough number of BITSAT mock test papers. By practising mock test papers of BITSAT, the students will get an idea of how to take the test as well as getting used to the BITSAT online entrance examination

  • Finding Right Study Materials: The right kind of preparation tempo for any exam is set by the kind of study materials the students choose. The same theory is applicable for BITSAT preparation as well. Experts and previous year BITSAT rank holders suggest that the right kind of study materials for the Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics sections are the NCERT textbooks and only after thoroughly going through the class XIth and XIIth NCERT textbooks, the students must look out for other study materials. The students will find all the best books for BITSAT 2020 recommended by previous year rank holders and experts alike in the Best Books for BITSAT 2020 section

How to Prepare for BITSAT 2020 in Two Months?

BITSAT short term preparation strategy has been prepared by CollegeDekho with the aim of helping the BITSAT 2020 aspirants gear themselves up for the entrance exam with 60 days leading up to the big day.

  • Check the BITSAT 2020 Syllabus: The BITSAT 2020 aspirants with fewer days to go for the entrance exam have to scan the BITSAT syllabus inside out unless they are well aware of the JEE syllabus. The BITSAT and JEE Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics syllabus is more or less similar except for the Logical Reasoning and English section

  • Clarify Concepts with NCERT: There is nothing better than NCERT textbooks for clarification of concepts, especially in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. The students can occasionally take the help of the additional reference books for strengthening their hold on the concepts but otherwise, east or west NCERT is the best

  • Read Newspaper: To succeed in the BITSAT 2020 sections like English and Logical reasoning, it is mandatory that the students must dedicate at least 2 hours on a daily basis to reading newspaper/s since these two sections cannot be cracked by conventional techniques used for the Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics sections

  • Solving Test Papers: Everyone knows how important it is to solve previous year BITSAT question papers, sample test papers and BITSAT online mock test papers to gauge the level of preparation for the BITSAT entrance examination. With 60 days or even fewer days left for the BITSAT entrance exam, the more students practise BITSAT test papers, the more confident they will be on the day D-Day
