The difficulty level of BITSAT Is tough as its one of the best and premium engineering college. But the syllabus is same as JEE MAIN. You need to score more than 360 marks to get admission in BITS PILANI as we all know that seats are very limited and admission is directly based on merit rank. Try to score as good as possible.
Feel free to comment if you have any doubt
The pattern for the BITSAT 2020 is a 3 hour Computer Based test having MCQ questions. The paper will be in English Language. The several parts of the paper are as follows:
