Selectively chosen Syllabus as Well as Scoring Sections

- BITSAT puts a prime focus on the deep study of NCERT textbooks for the clearance of concepts. Study it thoroughly and learn all the formulas and reactions by heart.
- English proficiency and logical reasoning sections need fewer investments and generate more returns. 75 marks, in total, can be scored in these sections. It is relatively easy to prepare too. Comes straight in your bag as bonus brownie points!
Hit the ‘speed’ wagon with the ‘accuracy’ shot of bull’s eye
- Out of both, accuracy is more important than speed. Once you master the accuracy levels, then concentrate on improving the speed.
- Analyse your mock test results carefully and what exactly went wrong with the incorrect answers. This will help you in improving tremendously.
- Also, make speed a habit in the preparation phase itself. Gradually, you will notice that there is a considerable improvement in both your speed and accuracy while solving questions.
The solution to “Bonus question” hack
- There are 12 bonus questions adding to the original count of 150. The catch is, to attempt the bonus ones, you need to submit the original 150 first and those can’t be visited back. So, move over to the bonus questions only when you are fully satisfied with the original ones.
- The bonus questions have 1 negative point for each wrong answer and 3 positive points for the correct one. So, even if you get only 5 correct out of 15, you are entitled to 15 marks for right answers and -10 for wrong. That gives you +5 in total. There is nothing much to lose here!
Statutory warning: Don’t proceed with bonus questions if you have less than 20 minutes left!
The road to success may not be easy to traverse but overcoming the hurdles using some smart hacks would definitely create some worth telling success stories. Good luck with creating yours!
