2016 BITSAT was neither hard nor easy. Candidates were pretty happy with the exam but physics was expected to be the toughest which was not at all the case. Rather mathematics was hard this year with some tricky and quiet lengthy questions and covered almost all the mathematic syllabus. As always Chemistry was quiet easy and had a major portion of Organic Chemistry which is quiet easy for students to attempt and saved a lot of time. On the other hand, Physics was moderate this year and also most of the questions were from Light, sound and energy. English was moderate too mainly focusing on synonyms and vocabulary and logical reasoning was tricky. But overall the question paper was of moderate level and not many students were able to attempt those extra 12 questions. Some even says that it was easier than JEE Mains conducted by CBSE.
Uday of KendriyaVidyalaya, Noida compared BITSAT 2016 exam reviews with JEE Mains and concluded that BITSAT was easier as well as wasn’t lengthy as JEE Mains was very lengthy.
