BITSAT 2023 Preparation Tips

A candidate taking the exam must answer a question in about 72 seconds. Even the needed cutoff marks for admission are pretty high. As a result, it is advised that applicants attempt as many questions as possible and follow the guidelines listed below. BITSAT 2023 Exam Preparation Tips to Achieve High Scores

  • Take a few quick notes: Short notes covering all of the main concepts and points should be taken. You can keep track of short formulae, reactions, and derivations for each topic in one place.
