3. The Institute considers only the latest performance through a public examination for admission. If the results of the latest examination are not available within the due date for submission of application, the candidate will not be considered even if there are some earlier performances of 12th class or its equivalent or any higher examination available with him/her. If a candidate has taken more than one attempt in 12th class or its equivalent, only his latest performance is considered, provided this attempt has been for the full component of subjects/courses prescribed.

When the BITSAT score of two candidates are the same:

* First their scores obtained in Mathematics/Biology in BITSAT will be considered for separating them.

* If the tie still exists, then their scores in Physics in BITSAT will be considered for separating them.

* Further tie is eliminated using their scores in Chemistry in BITSAT.

* Finally, their PCM total marks in 12th examination will be considered for their separation.

The candidates have to fill only a single application form for seeking admission to all the degree programmes offered at Pilani, Goa and Hyderabad campuses. The candidate’s order of preference for different programmes offered at Pilani, Goa, and Hyderabad campuses of the Institute is processed through a computer software and the offers are made accordingly.

If a candidate is offered admission to any programme of his/her preference as specified in the application form, he/she has to pay admission fee of Rs. 36,200/- and requisite one semester tuition fee of Rs. 1,59,000/- within the stipulated deadline. However, if a candidate is placed on the waiting list, he/she has to pay only admission fee of Rs. 36,200/- in advance and subsequently, if he/she is offered admission he/she has to remit the semester tuition fee of Rs.1,59,000/- as announced in the wait list offer.

2. a)If a candidate, who is offered admission, accepts the offer by remitting the above fees but fails to report at the Institute on the date specified above, he/she will forfeit the 10% of the total fee towards processing charges (Admission fee Plus the one semester tuition fee plus hostel fee).

b) If a candidate accepts the admission offer but withdraws within 15 days of reporting to the assigned campus on the specified date, he/she will forfeit the 20% of the total fee (Admission fee Plus the one semester tuition fee plus hostel fee) plus actual expenses incurred towards mess and electricity usage.

c) If a candidate accepts the admission offer but withdraws between 15 to 30 days of reporting to the assigned campus on the specified date, he/she will forfeit the 50% of the total fee (Admission fee Plus the one semester tuition fee plus hostel fee) plus actual expenses incurred towards mess and electricity usage.

*Whenever a candidate is admitted to a programme, he/she is kept on a waiting list for programmes of your higher preferences. Until all admissions for First Semester 2018-2019 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’. According to the Institute rules, your acceptance of the admission offer implies that you will be automatically considered for sliding up to programme of higher preference as indicated in your application form, under the above circumstances.

3. If the Institute is not able to offer admission to a wait-listed candidate in any of programmes of his/her preferences as specified in his/her application form, the total amount of fee paid will be refunded to him/her in due course of time.

4. A candidate who accepts an offer of admission or who accepts to be placed on waiting list by paying the requisite fees (as above) can choose to remain in the competition or withdraw from the race within the stipulated deadline, details of which will be made available on the website in June 2018.

5. While remitting fees, no candidate can stipulate any conditions such as changing order of preferences, addition/deletion of preferences etc. Even if any such conditions are mentioned while remitting fees, these will be ignored.
