3 year diploma in engg holder is eligible for BITSAT.

Parmeshwarsuhag55555 15th Nov, 2020

Hello there,

It is not possible to get admission into BITS Pilani after completing diploma (in any field). Only students who are currently in 12th or the students who have passed 12th with a minimum of 75% in PCM combined with at least 60% in each of the PCM in his 12th are eligible to give BITSAT . As students with diploma don't give 12th std. examination, so they are ineligible for the admission.

Hope this helps.


I have passed my 12th in 2020 and not given bitsat in 2020 am I eligible to give bitsat in 2021

Debdeep Pramanik 13th Nov, 2020

Dear aspirant,

As you mentioned you have passed your 12th board exam in 2020 and want to appear for BITSAT 2021, I would like to mention that it's possible and you would be eligible to sit for the exam easily. As mentioned by BITSAT you need to pass 12th board on or after 2019 to get eligibility for BITSAT exam. But remember you need to get 75% in total means in PCM and 60% individually in all three. If you have scored that much in your Board exam you would be eligible to sit for BITSAT exam. Hopefully you have understood.
