Admissions will be made purely on merit. The merit position of all eligible candidates from those who have appeared in BITSAT-2017 and have submitted application form for admission in the prescribed format with 12th marks, preferences and the required fees will be prepared on the basis of their total scores in BITSAT-2017. When the BITSAT score of two candidates are the same the tie will be broken considering (i) scores obtained in Mathematics/Biology in BITSAT (II) score in Physics in BITSAT (iii) scores in Chemistry in BITSAT (iv) PCM total marks in 12th examination, in that order.
To meet the ambitions of the students of M.Sc. (Biology, Chemistry, Economics, Mathematics and Physics) programmes, who could not get admission to B.E. programmes, the Institute has provisions to accommodate them in a dual degree scheme for a second degree in B.E. programmes. This assignment is made by competition on their performance at BITS at the end of first year, separately in Pilani, Goa and Hyderabad campuses. Requirements of both the degrees are structured to be completed normally in five years. There will be restriction on the availability of flexibility such as transfer and dual degree allotment for students admitted to B. Pharm. programme with PCB input. Since all the first degree programmes other than B. Pharm. programme requires PCM input, no transfer/dual degree allotment is possible with PCB input.
Direct Admission to Board Toppers: BITS will give direct admission to first rank students of all the central and state boards to the programme of their choice, irrespective of their BITSAT-2017 score. While the first rank student in PCM stream will be considered for admission to any of the first degree programmes of his/her choice, the first rank holder of PCB stream will be considered for admission to B. Pharm. programme only. Moreover, they should have obtained the minimum marks in PCM/PCB subjects in 12th examination, as described above. More details are available at the BITS website.
