How to prepare for BITSAT 2020?

Since BITSAT 2020 is an objective or multiple choice based question exam, it is very crucial to get the answer right. This is possible only when the concepts of the aspirants are crystal clear. Students must follow NCERT books meticulously to gain a strong hold over the concepts of Physics, Chemistry and Biology. For the students who have opted for Maths, they must ensure that they do enough practice for each type of question. The students must not leave out any topic from any subject. They must attempt the previous year question papers for practice. This will help the students get the knack of the type of questions they are supposed to face.
