If a medical student with 70% in cbse class 12th board can be able to apply BITSAT form 2020?

Malini S N 2nd Dec, 2019


Candidates must have passed their class 12 with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics as compulsory subjects and candidate who have opted for biology must have 75% aggregate score in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.So,if you have physics,chemistry and maths as compulsory subjects,then you will be eligible.Candidates must also score 60% individually in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.

All the best!!
