Birla Institute of Technology & Science (BITS) is one of the most prestigious names in the world of Engineering colleges and institutes. BITS has campuses in Pilani, Goa and Hyderabad. Now, if you are an Engineering aspirant and want to secure a seat in one of these prestigious campuses, then BITSAT (Birla Institute of Technology & Science Admission Test) must be your primary concern. BITSAT is quite different from other entrance tests for Engineering, in terms that it is a strictly online test. So, to pass this new age entrance test, one has to be tech savvy along with being knowledgeable.
So, here are some tech-savvy tips for cracking BITSAT:
- Get to know your keyboard
Well, if already spend a lot of time on your computer/laptop then its fine. But if you don’t, then it is absolutely essential to know your keyboard. BITSAT is an online test and you have to submit your answers through the click of your mouse. But in case you have to use the keyboard during the exams, it is essential that you be comfortable with that. Fiddling around, finding the right alphabet on the keyboard during the exam can prove to be fatal for you as time is of essence here. So, better be prepared and know the use of keyboard and mouse in advance. Using a computer regularly for a few days should suffice this.
2. Take online mock tests
As the exam is conducted totally online, it is better to take all your mock tests online too. This way, you’ll get a hang of the online examination process beforehand. There are various websites that lets you take mock BITSAT exams online. Simply look them up in Google and take the tests. Take as many tests as possible. On one hand you’ll get to practice your paper while on the other it’ll make you comfortable for the whole online test concept.
3. Take a look at their website
Now this is important. BITS does not entertain any application through email or post. You’ll have to apply online through their website: http://bitsadmission.com/. You’ll also get many useful resources and information here regarding the entrance. So, it is absolutely must to visit their website once in a while, even after you’ve submitted your application.
4. Be attentive
Of course, this does not come under the purview of being tech-savvy. But as the exam pattern of this test is alternative type (which means you’ll have to choose the right answer among a set of solutions) and you are using a computer mouse to tick the right one, you must be extra attentive while choosing the right one. As, there is a possibility of you choosing the wrong option accidentally, especially if you are not used to using a mouse. Take special care here.
So, these are the most important technical tips for cracking BITSAT. While BITSAT is one of the toughest engineering entrance in the country, with diligent practice and a bit of computer use, you should be able to crack it effortlessly.
