**Tips :-**

- Most of the question in Physics will be based on formula with concept.So all you need to concentrate is on concept dont worry about the calculation part it will be simple.
- During exam try to solve those question which you are sure about i.e which you can solve in just first attempt.
- Dont waste too much tym on any particular question although you can find the answer(it will effect your overall performance)
- The difficulty level of BITSAT vary every year so no once can predict the level in 2015.All you need to concentrate is on concept.If your concept is clear than you will get good marks.
- BITSAT is an online exam and many students dont have much practice to give the exam online.So before your BITSAT Exam try to solve some online sample papers.It will really help you to get experience.
- Try to solve question of previous years, you will get to know the difficulty level, pattern, will help you in your mind setup and if your preparation is good than it will boost up your confidence level.You can get “Comprehensive Guide to BITSAT Online Test” from here(a book with lot of positive response and most importantly thousands of question to practice) —>

Hope now you can prepare for your BITSAT Exam well after knowing the Physics Syllabus and some tips.From my side i wish you best of luck for your preparation.Also if you have any query feel free to ask via comments.Till than stay tuned to engineeringfunday on Facebook, Twitter.
