Via BITSAT 2019, admission will be made in the BITS Pilani campus, Hyderabad Campus, Goa campus and the Dubai campus. It becomes mandatory when it comes to engineering admission, that a candidate must apply for the BITSAT exam. Why so? Reasons are discussed below.
Best Option For Engineering Aspirants:
Every engineering aspirant opts for the JEE Main exam. However, the second best option if one is, unfortunately, unable to crack the JEE Main exam, is the BITSAT exam. BITS Pilani is considered the best institute for engineering after 10+2. It even has been recognised as an Institute Of Eminence this year. The curriculum and structure of programmes in BITS, provide a huge variety to the candidates to choose from. Via JEE Main candidates get admission in JEE NITs, CFTIs and IIITs. However, not to sugar coat, JEE Main is a tough nut to crack, and not everyone can survive. However, candidates can apply for the next best option that is the BITSAT exam that has a bit lower difficulty level and competition.
The integrated first-degree courses available via BITSAT 2019 are Chemical, Civil, Computer Science, Electrical and Electronics, Electronics & Instrumentation, Mechanical, and Manufacturing.
Entry To BITS Is Also A Huge Deal:

BITSAT 2019 exam is an online entrance exam that is conducted at the national level like the JEE Mains. About 3 lakh candidates appear in the BITSAT exam each year. But as compared to the JEE Main exam, the competition and difficulty level are slightly lower.
BITS group of Institutes are known for their high placement records, last year the number of students placed were UG – 1,521 and PG – 218. The NIRF Ranking of BITSAT this year is 17 in the engineering category. Thus, getting into BITS is a matter of a great deal and a guarantee to a sure shot placement at the end of the terms.
BITSAT Has Major Advantages That Guarantees Admission:
In JEE Main about 11 lakh candidates appear per year, in BITSAT the number of candidates appearing goes down to 3 lakhs. Competition, is thus, is cut down to half. Which in turn eases the pressure and assures a chance for admission.

The candidates scoring in the range of 200 to 249 get a fee waiver scholarship of 25% of the tuition fee.
Clearly, BITSAT 2019 is a “must give” engineering entrance exam for every engineering aspirants after the JEE Mains.
