Factors for Determining BITSAT Cutoff

There is some basis on which the admission committee decides the cut-off for BITSAT every year. These factors affect the Cutoff of every campus. The factors mentioned below are added up to get a final Cutoff score.

  • The criteria for previous year Cutoff
  • The number of seats available
  • The total number of candidates that are appearing for the exam
  • Level of difficulty of the exam
  • The aggregate or the total marks scored by all the students appearing for the exam

Here is the Cutoff for the six iteration rounds of last year

As you can notice, there is not much difference in the cutoff marks after the 1st round till the 4th round. These rounds are an indication to the number of seats that are still not filled in the respective campus. Thus, prepare for the BITSAT, based on these cutoff marks.
