Application Editing

  • The merit position of all eligible candidates will be prepared on the basis of their total scores in BITSAT 2024.
  • There will be two separate merit lists prepared for admission. One for all the programmes except the B.Pharm. and the other only for B.Pharm.

Seat Allotment

  • Admissions to First Degree programmes will be made purely on merit position on the basis of score obtained by the candidate in BITSAT 2024.
  • In the process of seat allotment, the allotment of seats starts from the first candidate on the merit list and goes down the merit list until all the seats are filled up.
  • After each iteration, there are candidates who decline the offer and/or who have not paid fees. These candidates are removed from the merit list before next iteration.
  • At any time when the computer considers a candidate for seat allotment, it first tries to accommodate the first preference of the candidate and goes to his/her second preference if his/her first preference could not be accommodated and so on.

Waiting List

  • A certain number of candidates would be placed on the waiting list in each iteration. Such candidates may get a seat allotted in the next iteration.
  • The cut-off point for the waiting list is arrived at by the past experience of BITS in terms of the responses from the candidates, the number and the quality of candidates who have applied in the current year with a view to complete the admissions and start the classes in time.
  • A student who has a higher BITSAT score may be on the waiting list while a student who has a lesser BITSAT score may have got admission because the former crossed out a programme which the later had opted for and seats were available in that particular programme.

Advance Fees

  • If a candidate is offered admission to any programme of his/her preference, he/she has to pay admission fee and the requisite one semester tuition fee within the stipulated deadline.
  • If a candidate is placed on the waiting list, he/she has to pay only admission fee in advance and subsequently, if he/she is offered admission he/she has to remit the semester tuition fee as announced in the wait list offer.

Sliding

  • Whenever a candidate is admitted to a programme, he/she is kept on a waiting list for his/her higher preferences.
  • Until all admissions are completed, any vacancy in any programme caused by non-acceptance of the offers will be filled by offering the vacant seat to the next candidate in the order of merit.
  • This process is called “Sliding-Up”.
