should i prepare myself for jee main or go for more focusing on bitsat 2020 coz my current percentile is 83 (gen) ??

Subhodeep Biswas 28th Jan, 2020
Hey there hope you're doing well.
Dear aspirant, BITSAT examination is of 450 marks in which you're asked for physics, chemistry , maths along with English and logical reasoning. Where's in JEE MAIN you're only asked PCM
Moreover it's easier to score in JEE MAIN. I'll suggest you to pull up your efforts for April attempt and score good percentile in JEE as you've already prepared and a little effort would bring flying colours meanwhile if you want you can focus on logical reasoning and little bit of English to parallel your bitsat preparation.
Thank you hope this helps you!

Hello there!!
Students who are seeking admission in BITS Pilani and its other campuses at Goa, Hyderabad and Dubai . Students have to deposit the fees in institute at the time of admission as per the BITSAT fee structure 2020. Candidates must note that BITS fees is same for all first degree programs which include B.Tech, B.Pharm and M.Sc but is different for all four campuses.
There is no such misconception that fee for the students increased according to the round . No it will not.
The fee is fixed and it will be varies for campus to campus.
After allotment of your seat you have to pay your fee through cash , or else even on  online . Otherwise they cancle the seat and fee will be semester wise .
Finally fee will be same . Do not depend on round of allotment
All the best
