BITSAT 2016 reviews
According to the candidate who has appeared for BITSAT in this year found the difficulty level of BITSAT to be moderate. As compared to JEE Mains which is also for engineering BITSAT was way more easy.
As usual, mathematics was the toughest which could make or break your rank. It took way lot time. The questions covered almost all the main topics of mathematics syllabus. The questions which came also seemed to be tricky and very lengthy.
Chemistry as always was very easy and predictable. The best thing was major part was filled with Organic Chemistry which proved to a savior in this examination. This section is basically proved to uplift your rank as it saved a lot of time. Also, the numerical part way very easy.
Physics was of moderate level and had numerical which were not very lengthy. For some people it was also hard but more people found it of moderate level. The numericals were only testing your formula knowledge.
English was of good standard. One should have a good command over English to attempt those questions. The Logical reasoning question were also tricky and brain is to use for this.
