BITSAT 2014; Apply Online

Candidates seeking admission into any of the three campuses of Birla Institute of Technology & Science (BITS) have to fill application form online at BITS website. The BITS admission test commonly known as BITSAT is an online test at various computerized centres across India. It is a 3 hours online test for admission into various integrated engineering and B. pharm courses. The subjects for the test are Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Biology, English Proficiency and Logical Reasoning. Students opting for B. pharm has to appear Biology in place of Mathematics and the syllabus for the test is based on class XI and XII of CBSE. The subjectwise number of questions are as under:

Physics:  40 Questions
Chemistry:  40 Questions
English Proficiency: 15 Questions
Logical Reasoning: 10 Questions
Mathematics/Biology (For B.Pharm):  45 Questions
Total: 150 Questions

A candidate can avail the newly introduced system of opting for 12 extra questions once the he/she finishes 150 questions and still have time to attempt these extra questions. However, once this option exercised he/she can not go back to rectify any of the questions in the main section of 150 questions.

Entranceindia released Model Papers and Sample Papers for BITSAT 2014 which contains questions from the whole BITSAT Syllabus including English and Logical Reasoning. We are also going to release Practice CDs for BITSAT 2014. Candidates opting for B. Pharma can also avail Biology test.

AIPMT Model Papers: Success Series

All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) 2014 is going to be conducted in the month of May to select candidates for 15% quota seats in medical colleges across India except few colleges. There are also many states which has adopted AIPMT score to select candidates for medical colleges in that state. The importance of All India Pre-Medical Test AIPMT is gradually increasing keeping in view of number of states adopting AIPMT Score for their state. Entranceindia is pioneer in providing model papers and sample test papers for AIPMT since year 2012. Entranceindia also released success series DVDs which contains AIPMT Test Maker as well as 11 model papers for practice. Each model paper covers 180 questions from subjects Physics, Chemistry, Botany and Zoology exactly in the same pattern as asked in AIPMT test. We also provide free AIPMT sample papers for registered candidates. Our model papers and sample papers are prepared by expert faculties and analysts engaged in Pre-medical coaching. Apart from success series we have online test series for AIPMT and Achiever’s plan for AIPMT 2014. Your AIPMT Preparation will be supplemented by our online and DVD practice sets which contain AIPMT pattern questions covering the entire AIPMT Syllabus. We provide detail solution to each model paper problem helping in a deep understanding by the candidates appearing AIPMT and other state level medical tests.
