Competitive examinations are inevitable challenges for students who wish to be admitted to the best engineering colleges. This article is primarily for students who want to ace their BITS and EAMCET exams and get into prestigious colleges. Students in the MPC streams must first assess their strengths and weaknesses before studying for these exams. They must take a calculated approach to these tests. In the states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, nearly 3.5 lakh senior intermediate students graduate each year.
Every year, more than 1 lakh students take the IIT entrance exams. Despite the fact that 1.3 lakh students applied for JEE, only 0.5 percent of them were successful. Even if 4000 students are accepted into the NITs and IIITs, the success rate remains at 4%. This means that only 2% of students from MPC streams are accepted into NITs, IITs, and IIITs. The salary package offered during campus placements is the most important determinant for students when choosing a college. The approximate ratio of students who pass the JEE Advanced exams is 1:20. The BITSAT is the next best exam in the hierarchy. Between JEE and EAMCET aspirants, there is a 1:30 ratio of rivalry and performance. Exam formats differ, so strategies for planning and appearing in the JEE Advanced, JEE Mains, BITS, and EAMCET exams differ as well. For instance, the JEE exam contains 90 questions, the BITS exam contains 150 questions, and the EAMCET exam contains 160 questions that must be answered in three hours.
In both BITS and EAMCET, you will be asked roughly the same number of questions. As a result, no changes to the time management strategy are needed. The number of questions on other entrance exams for deemed universities ranges from 150 to 200. With the exception of JEE, if you train for BITS and EAMCET, you should be prepared to appear in almost all Indian exams. These tests put your time management skills to the test, as you’ll be asked to answer more questions in less time.
Preparational Requirements for BITSAT:
At the Bits Pilanis, situated in Goa and Hyderabad campuses, you can take the BITSAT for courses such as Engineering, Integrated PG, and B-Pharmacy. Students taking the BITSAT must answer 45 questions on math, 40 questions on physics, 40 questions on chemistry, and 25 questions on English and reasoning out of a total of 150 questions. You get three points for each correct answer, and one point is deducted for each incorrect answer. If you get a score of 380 or higher out of 450, you can easily get into Pilani, while a score of 350 or higher can get you into the Goa or Hyderabad campuses. If you want to go into pharmacy, you’ll need a score of 240 or higher. You’ll need a score of at least 300 to be admitted to other courses.
In 2011, 75 thousand aspirants took the BITSAT tests, which increased to 2 lakh candidates in 2016. It is recommended that you fully read and train for the intermediate math syllabus. In the Physics and Chemistry portion, it is preferable that you answer at least 50 questions out of 80. Having a score of 300 is simple if you follow this guideline. Ideally, you should try to answer the 20 reasoning questions, as they are simple to score for most people and don’t take long to complete. Since the BITSAT is an online test, no two students can receive the same questions. It is simple to score higher than 400 if you practise with mock exams.
Reasons why students choose to take the EAMCET:
EAMCET is preferred by nearly 90% of students from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. The only exam that considers intermediate grades for MPC or BiPC streams is the EAMCET. The scores in intermediate exams are given 25% weightage in determining the final EAMCET position or rank. A final grade of 600 is divided by 25, resulting in a weighted average of 1 mark for every 24 marks earned.
Another significant thing to remember is that the EAMCET does not have any negative marking. The majority of students who take the exam succeed in getting into a college. When it comes to securing top colleges, however, the competition steps up.
