  • The Physics section was moderately difficult.
  • The Chemistry section consisted of some tricky questions.
  • The English section was quite difficult if we compare it with the previous years.
  • Logical reasoning was neither too tough nor too easy.

BITSAT 2019 Paper Analysis: Subject wise Analysis
