The aspirant can go back and modify any of their answers among the 150 questions.
BITSAT 2012 will be of total 3 hour duration ( without break ). The test consists of four parts :
Part I : Physics
Part II : Chemistry
Part III : ( a ) English Proficiency and ( b ) Logical Reasoning
Part IV : Mathematics
All questions are of objective type ( multiple choice questions ); each question with choice of four answers, only one being correct choice.
Each correct answer fetches 3 marks, while each incorrect answer has a penalty of 1 mark ( -1 mark ). No marks are awarded for questions not attempted.

There will be 150 questions in all. There is no time limit for individual parts of the BITSAT Entrance Test. The candidate can go back and change any of his / her answers among the 150 questions.
A candidate answers all the 150 questions ( without skipping any question ), the candidate will have an option of attempting 12 ( twelve ) extra questions, if there is still time left.
These extra questions will be from Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics only; four questions from each part. Further, once the candidate has opted for extra questions, he cannot go back for correction of any of the earlier answered 150 questions.
The questions are so designed that a good student will be able to answer 150 questions in 180 minutes. The extra questions (a maximum of 12 ) will give a chance to highly meritorious candidates to score higher.
