hi deepak,
im placed in the waitin list but my score got increased from 277 to 285.th cut-off 4 1st iteration is 267 then why am i in the waitin list???(i gave pilani as my first preferance,goa second&hyd third.

jatin said...

i got b pham (hons) with 277
my friend got ec hyd with 349
other guy got info(tech) hyd with 309

DeEpAk said...

congrats everyone for making into BITS.
@Shailen, I am not sure but your preference order could be the possible reason..may be you have given lot of weightage to pilani and hence stand in WL.
@Jatin, 277 will fetch you better streams after further iterations..

shailen said...

then will ihave a chance to make it to pilani in 2nd iteration???

kunal said...

my score is 324. i got mech at goa.

jatin said...

hi,
prob wat i have got is that i have given mech hyd and goa above msc maths(pilani) or phy but now iam more interested in maths so that later i can opt for dual ,and if i cross both theirs cut off, so now is there any way out.by the way by locking pilani campus can my objective be solved

Anonymous said...

i am placed in the waiting list, my score is 261. what are the chances i get any course in any campus? i have filled all the choices.i have NOT filled up FPB. till which iteration will i have to wait?

DeEpAk said...

@Anonymous,
You have score of 261 which is good and i think you will get one of the MSc courses in later iterations (depending upon your preferences) but not sure about the campus.

shailen said...

hi deepak,
i guess u missed my posts pls reply.

naresh said...

hi, this is naresh,iam bit confused about cut off given 251.is this the final cut off?or will it be changed for 2-iteration?
my frnd got 248 will he get msc(biology)in any of the campuses?

Aaditya said...

I have BITSAT 08 score 250. I am not in waiting list of 1st July08 ( cut-Off is 251).Do I have any chance of getting my name in second waiting list?

Adwait said...

hi DEEPAK
I got 306 marks in BITSAT and have got Msc Physics after first iteration.
This is my first preferance for msc and all above preferances are of BE Hons.
Do you think that i will get BE Hons Mechanical at Goa campus or EEE/ECE at Hyderabad campus ?
What about Chem At goa ??

career advocate said...

@Shailen,
I have already replied to your query in previous comments. Here is the snippet: "@Shailen, I am not sure but your preference order could be the possible reason..may be you have given lot of weightage to pilani and hence stand in WL." But dont worry since your score is well above the cut-off you stand a fair chance to get into BITS. In case you feel that you ought to have got atleast any seat in BITS, please contact BITS admission.

@Naresh, As far as i know, this is not the final cut-off. After the further iterations, the cut-off will come down more. I predict the cut-off to come down to 240-245.

@Aditya, As i told earlier this is not the final cut-off. After further iterations the cut-off may come down. But meanwhile i suggest you to keep a check on other colleges' counseling dates and procedures.

@Adwait, I can assure you about the streams you have mentioned but based on the scores and corresponding streams the other students have mentioned in this post, i think you stand a fair chance for goa and hyd campus. There will be some sliding after the further iterations though.

DeEpAk said...

@Vardhan, Good! That's the kind of spirit a BITS aspirant should have. Now that u are assured of getting seat in BITS, i feel you should also help other bits aspirants the same way. :). I suggest you to help the other students who facing difficulties in understanding the BITS admission process. Thank you and congrats once again !

vardhan said...

congrats every one who could make it to bits @deepak .. yes, i will surely help the futer bitsians..

shailen said...

hi deepak,
my score is 285,im placed in waitin list....wat can i expect in 2nd iteration?????.......my pref order is B.E PILANI,msC PILANI,B.E GOA,MSc.GOA,B.E HYD & MSc.HYD....PLEASE HELP ME!!!

Anonymous said...

Just to share our experience with you guys...
My son scored 306. His preferences were CS/EEE/ENI Goa/Hyd, followed by MSc Maths/Economics Pilani, Maths Goa. He was offered Goa Maths. I was surprised initially that he did not get Maths Pilani but it looks there will be considerable amount of sliding.

shailen said...

deepak or vardhan pls answer 2 my question!!!!

vardhan said...

@anonymoys.. 306 is a good score which could fetch m.sc hons -maths-pilani campus .. considering the last years cutoffs which were around 290 one might get it but wait upto 2nd or 3rd iteration..... @ shalien... are you sure you are placed in the waiting list ..? give your entire prefernce list so that we can get a good idea...most probable reason might be prefernce list..!!

DeEpAk said...

@Shailen,

Please provide your pref list and also you can call the BITS authorities and seek clarification on you status for admission.

vardhan said...

@DEEPAK .... i need some advice from you 1}to what extent one must be proficient in using computers so that we may not face any difficulties when on campus..... 2]are there any banks in the pilani campus which offer educational loan ...? if yes please try to give me their contact number or adress 3] why does one needs to open a bank account? 4}is computer really necessary . what are uses of it in the campus? 5] what is LAN?

DeEpAk said...

@Vardhan,
you asked all the doubts which I was planning to clarify in one of my posts(I am still working on it). I shall give you the brief info here for more details hang on..shall add another post on it soon. coming to your questions:
1. We have sbbj and uco bank in pilani. Opening of account and all would be done with out any hassles. Account is required for various money transactions. Educational loan is provided by sbi through sbbj. Not sure about uco bank. Once you take the admission process you can go and contact them..they will be available near the admission booth itself.
2. Proficiency in computers is not mandatory as you will learn those along with your courses. Computer is not required in first year, but from second year it will come quite handy.
3. LAN is nothing but a network in which all the students are connected online through their computers. You can chat, share and send files to them.

please reply wat exactly i can get in 2nd iteration????

shailen said...

@deepak & vardhan,
my revised score is 285.

DeEpAk said...

@Shailen,

I suggest you to call the authorities and get your clarifications done. I dont understand on what basis were you given waitlist status. Based on what reply the authorities give i guess it would then be easy for us to do the guessing work. So call them and let us also know their reasons.

vardhan said...

@deepak ... thanks deepak...so, i do not need to apply here(hyd)...i want their adress( phone no) so that i could contact them and clear about my doubts regarding documents etc,.. please try to get it .... thanks once again....................... @shailen....... it is quite surpricing that you are placed in the waiting list .. you must have got some m.sc in hyd or goa...don't be disappointed ..that 267 may be off b.pharm... last year's cutoff for 1st iteration is304 and for 2nd one it is 285.... it is not possible to guess which course you will get ( all those who predicted cutoffs already got a rude shock including me)... but by the score you might get m.sc course in goa or hyd.... if you are still in doubt please contact the admn.office ( not at all by e- mail)... !!!!pay the sum and hope for the best that's all what i can say..

NSASRS said...

@ Shailen,
It seems that you did not fill out the Bio form and filled only the FES form.
So it is likely that the only options available at your score of 285 were M.Sc. Bio & B. Pharma, which you have not filled. M.Sc. Chem Hyderabad may have been around 290-292.
The 267 cutoff is most probably for the least preferred option of B.Pharm. Hyderabad.
But you have a fair chance of getting one of the M.Sc.'s in Hyderababd or Goa in the next iteration.
Good luck.

Anonymous said...

what is msc tech general studies ?
how are the placements ?

Nitish said...

Hi I got eee hyd (330 score) in first iteration.What are chances of eee 0r e and i in Pilani?
Is e and i a good course?

shailen said...

@deepak & vardhan,
i got 2 know that the cut-off 4 fpb courses is 267 & 4 fes courses it is 292..........so now please tell me wat i can get in the 2nd itr???

DeEpAk said...

@Shailen,
sliding process can get down the cut-offs by around 10 to 20 marks. If you are willing to join BITS at any cost and for any stream then i guess you can pay the fees and wait for the results. If you are willing to join BITS only for specified streams then you need to take shots. Go by your gut feeling after all you shouldn't feel dejected later for anything just because you did not give it a try.

shailen said...

@ deepak i dont mind doin any fes course...........but i wish 2 do it from pilani ,last yr msc chem in pilani was at 286 so wid my score of 285 can i get it????? so that ican opt 4 a dual & do mechanical.(my pref order has been given above) & one more thing i already paid the fees 2 bits.

vardhan said...

@shailen ...the last year's cutoff for m.sc chem -pilani campusis 285 .... but remember that it is only after 4th or 5th iteration.... but going by this year's tradition(like hyd campus,new iits ,decrease in no.of people scoring above 300) you may get it by 2nd or third iteration.....but be confident and patient... you will surely land up with something in BITS....

vardhan said...

@Deepak
what is time table? one the day of admission one has to choose time table....how far seniors will be helpful in choosing these time tables...

DeEpAk said...

@Vardhan, Timetable is nothin but your daily schedule for classes. BITS has given us the flexibility to decide our schedule based on our priorities. Seniors on-campus will surely help you in this regard. You can approach them without any fear.

Good news guys !!
First review on BITS-GOA !! Have a look !!

http://careeradvocate.blogspot.com/2008/07/bits-goa.html

vardhan said...

@deepak
the description of goa campus is good..
how many classes will be conducted in a day during 1st year ....? is the course is common for all the students in 1st and 2nd year?
what is the better way to reach pilani campus?

shailen said...

@deepak & vardhan thanx!!! 4 ur help i'll let u know wat i got on 13th....then v can analyse 4 the next itr....once again thanx!!!!

DeEpAk said...

@Vardhan, You seem to have so many queries !! Ofcourse valid though. Classes wont be common for first and second years. On average you can have 5 classes per day. U will also have 2 hour lab thrice a week in first year. I am not sure if its changed now.
@Shailen, Now that you are waiting till the results of next iteration, I request you to help other students who are posting their queries so that they will also benefit from you.

vardhan said...

i think you are from hyd.. so how to reach pilani from hyd with minimum risk

vardhan said...

@shailen
do not worry you will definotely make it bits

Anonymous said...

Hey !
I have got 304 marks in Bitsat and am hoping to get Chemical engineering at goa campus. currently i have got Msc Economics at goa campus. do you think that i will get chemical engineering in goa ??

DeEpAk said...

@Anonymous, 304 is good score and have fair chances of getting chemical also mechanical in GOA. Of course it also depends upon your preferences.

naresh said...

hi,i have few questions about msc(biology)
in the ofiicial website of bits it is written like this:
Students who have taken Mathematics in BITSAT will be considered under “First Priority” category for allotment of dual degree and almost ensured to get a dual degree allotment. Students who have taken Biology in BITSAT will be required to take additional remedial Mathematics course and they will be able to apply for dual degree only under the “Other priorities” category which is operated after satisfying the known needs of “First Priority” category.
Students in any other group seeking a second degree from amongst the programmes in the same group or another group will also be considered under other ‘priorities.
my question is maths is given first priority.whether msc(biology)students will get equal preference with others(eco,phy,che...)after maths to get dual?
what is that additional mathematical remedial course?
my score is 265 so iam likely to get biology.so plz tell me whether biology is eqally good with other streams(eco,math....)or not?plz tell me ups and downs of that course.

rajaaa said...

Hi deepak
good morning

rajaaa said...

Hi deepak,
nice to chat after long time.With the mark of 314 (+3) I was alloted civil in Hyd.I thing the 1 iteration cut of for ece hyd is about 324-325. May I know what may the cutoff for cs at hyd.Can I get either one of these in 2 iteration.I preferred hyd over goa. eee hyd cut off looks like 321-322 and Mech hyd 318 likely.Anyway I am interested in cs or ece.Pl.tell me what is the possibility of getting it on 13 th july.
Kudos for the wonderful blog. Nice details about curriculam and goa campus.Also enlighten about Hyd campus in ur post.
Regards and Thank U
RAJA

rajaaa said...

Hi friends,
Is there anybody who has sent the money throgh NEFT got firm confirmation otherthan acknowledgement for fax.Pl.let me know.
thanks

DeEpAk said...

For a new campus it will more of guessing work so i feel lets leave it till the list comes. Hyd campus is starting this year so i dont have anything to say about it. But i guess vardhan has visited the under construction campus. He might be able to send me some pics to post it in the blog.

vardhan said...

@anonymous
it is only upto the allotment of the dual degree.. after 1st year based on your cgpa you get the b.e stream
@raaja..
i have sent the amount through neft.
to be honest ,it sucks. i have made the transaction through it on 7th evening ,and the fax i sent on 8th morning .they took horrible 30 hours just to update that they have received fax on 9th evening .till now there is no confirmation of the amount.. it is giving me sleepless nights..i advice all the futre students to send a dd rather than sending through neft.. always old is gold
@ deepak
you are not answering my question." how to reach pilani .
1]delhi> bus
2]jaipur> bus or train"


regarding h-campus.i have not visited it till now .but certainly will visit after second iteration
as my entire mind has been focussed on the second iteration and neft created a storm .( and other reason is i stay in other end of the city which is far away from the campus)
there are reports that work is still going on and certain parts of it have been completed .
some one said girls will be hostelled in the near by secunderabad and will be transported to the campus in the 1st year...
but every new college will have these difficulties in the starting.
compared to iit-h, bits-h far above as the land has still to be alloted for iit and it will take two more months( by august) ...
till the campus (IIT)is completed they have conduct classes in vacant buildings in ordnance factory(ODF)
it will definitely take 2-3 years for iit to have a full fledged campus..
bits -h will have upper hand over iit-h interms of amentities ..
if any one wishes to visit bits-h campus ..here i am giving the simple route..
>go to secunderabad railway station
>take city buses as they are cheap
bus nos(211s, 211 m , 211 c)which will be available just outside the station. campus is 25 km from station.
>get down at Ghatkesar cross roads.
> take auto which will available there itself. 3.5 km and you reach
BITS-PILANI.HC
Avoid taking district busses
(which go to karimnagar) as the charge more..

Anonymous said...

@rajaaa,
Yes I did get a confirmation on NEF, other than Fax.

But, I did not get this confirmation for a long time. I called the bank directly, got the confirmation from them verbally, and then called BITS, told them about it, then they updated the website

vardhan said...

@raaja and anonymous
now i received message saying
"the fees sent by you has been received"
by now yours also must have been given..
they took 4 days to confirm this..

naresh said...

hi deepak,
in bits website they mentioned that msc(biology)students should take an extra remedial mathematics course.plz clarify what it means?
also plz clarify my questions in the previous comment.

vardhan said...

@naresh
in my opinion ,the students who are from b.p.c stream ,who are not sound in maths, have to take the course..

shailen said...

@deepak & vardhan any idea by wat time d results of 2nd itr will b released coz there is no info on d bits web.....

vardhan said...

@shailen
no info about time.
iam still waiting for it .
might be they have forgoteen it.

I really appreciate your efforts in clearing doubts many other BITS aspirants !! Keep of the spirit !! Shall treat you guys definitely when i meet you sometime...

DeEpAk said...

@samvit, I dont get the reason for u being in waitlisted. May be you should find out what were the cut-offs for MSc courses other than biology. Vardhan or Shailen can help you.
@Naresh, Congrats !! I am sure there will be more slidings in coming iterations !
@Kunal, Your score is good and i hope u can make it to mech at pilani. lets wait and watch. Chemical at Pilani is also good.

vardhan said...

everyone here are doing a great job. special thanks to Deepak.
congrats everyone who could makle it.

@shailen
no, you are not at troubling anyone here.asking questions clears doubts more clearly than posts.are you sure of those cutoffs?

Hey Guys
I got BE Hons Mechanical at goa campus with a score of 306 !
Special thanks to deepak, shailen and vardhan. you have really helped students like us. Also congrats 2 u fr making it to BITS !
Now, it seems that E&I at goa is available at 300, the earlier cut off being 314. so the cutoffs realy dropping big time ! Any predictions on the cut offs of CS or EEE at Goa campus ???

shailen said...

@adwait thanx & same 2 u!!! let me make it clear 2 all that the above scores r d marks of few students & therefore can come 2 conclusion at d cutoffs wid d help of others marks...... i know 2 ppl who got cse goa@324 & d other eee goa@327 but don't know abt d cutoff!!

rajaaa said...

Hai deepak, With the score of 314 I have got CS at Hyd.My pref.cs pilani>eee pi>ei pi>mech pi>cs hyd>cs Goa.I am happy with that.Ur exceptionally exellent in bringing lot of informations through this blog.Kudos to U.U please enlighten all of us about promises and prospects of cse at bits hyd.
regards.

DeEpAk said...

Hi raja,
To be frank, freshly started CS at Hyd cannot be compared with experienced CS at Pilani. CS at GOA will also have advantage intially but in the long run HYD will turn out to be more popular. Many reasons to support this claim. Not that BITS-GOA does not have good faculty and all. The faculty at all campuses is same and placements have also turned out to be excellent. But Hyderabad has turned into an IT and educational hub. You will see that there are so many prestigious universities and institutes apart from engineering colleges. IT companies are expaninding their reach and building huge campuses at Hyd. Plans of IIM are also in discussions and IIT has already started. This makes Hyd an educational and IT hub. Hyd campus being a new college, you will have lots of things to try and explore (Learn from other campuses and experiment in yours). You might face minor difficulties initially but later it will become a smooth process. Regd. course curricula and all i guess it should be same like other campuses.

vardhan said...

beeing in the first batch certainly gives slight difficulties.
but in the long run itwill certainly develope you as an individual and take your own decisions (both right and wrong ).
there is no need to worry about professors and lecturers in hyd campus. see the bits website, they got the faculty from across the world (indians though)and some good colleges like IIIT,CBIT,etc., and some faculty from pilani also shifted to hyd campus...
no need to worry about campus placements and all.. hyd is the most happening city in INDIA and and it's IT hub and growing educational destination.
if you are good enough companies here will run after you ..
@raaja
where are you from?

vardhan said...

just an example how stupid some are..!!
one girl of our class got 355...
tell me everyone ,what will you do at those high scores and having interests in cs will put in preference form...
everyone says cs -pilani
while ther is 100% chance of her getting cs -p , she put cs-h as her first prefernce...
in my opinion she commited mistake of her life.....that's really stupid.....!!!!

naresh said...

hi,
i got 265 and alloted msc(bio..)goa
my next pref is msc(bio..)pilani.
i dont know good and bad about any of msc courses.my question is if iget bio..-pilani in 3iteration what should i do?if i wont lock the campus(pilani)and continue for sliding prosses there are some chances that imay get any of msc courses in fes form at hyd...
plz tell me whether is it best to do bio..in pilani or msc course in fes form at hyd...
iam again telling that i donot have any idea or specific interest on eco,mat,phy,bio.....
is there any difference in allotment of dual for msc courses in fes and msc(bio...)
plz guide me in deciding my collg after reading above comment.ihave taken mathematics in BITSAT.

shailen said...

@naresh msc bio is treated on par wid d other msc's .....in dis course also u will get a BE degree at d end of ur 1st yr..........it depends on u whether u want 2pass out only from pilani or a better msc from a new campus!!! my advice is that doin anythin from pilani is good!!!

DeEpAk said...

Hi,

I request you guys to go through this post: http://careeradvocate.blogspot.com/2008/07/target-bits.html

I am from Nagpur.
Hv U visited the campus.What is ur impression.
Thanks

vardhan said...

@naresh
considering that you have no specific interestin any, go to pilani and lock the campus.and then study well in the 1st year and get good cgpa.you will get a b.e.that's best in my opinion. rather than coming to a new campus and taking a degree of which you are not confident.. you might not be sure of what you are doing at the new campus .you have the advantage of having maths..go for pilani .that's what everyone can say.......is it..??
@raja..
i am going tomorrow ..today gone to college to get my +2 certificates .
some of my freinds alredy visited and they said that infrastructure for first year is ready..
acc. to bits officials they will arrange info counter in the Secunderabad station during the admissions . do not worry.. BITS will take care of every thing..
u will certaionly love HYD (except traffic jams)......!

@vardhan,
your comment on "example how stupid some are..!!
one girl got 355... put cs-h as her first prefernce..."

Well, sometimes other parameters in life take a higher priority. In her particular case, there must be a very good reason for that choice. We will understand it only when we are in that situation...

My son with 306 was offered ENI Goa. Does anyone think he can slide up in 3rd iteration ? His higher preferences are CS Goa, CS Hyd, EEE Goa, ECE Hyd.

Adwait said...

@Anonymus
What a coincidence ! Even i got 306and my third preferance being mech goa, am currently placed in it. even i was doing some research as my higher preferances are eee and cs goa. according to stats, last year E&I closed at 314 while this year the cut off after second iteration itself is around 300. so by this way i hope eee at 306 is possible. CS however seems tough. i have no idea of hyderabad campus though. Good luck to you !

shailen said...

@anonymous u have a bright chance of gettin cse or ece at hyd.........in d 2nd itr a person got cs hyd@307 so u may easily get that!!

shailen said...

@deepak i have gone through http://careeradvocate.blogspot.com/2008/07/target-bits.h
it was good 2 read how he prepared 4 bits......as u asked me 2 post my comments i did post how i targeted bits!!!

naresh said...

hi,
suppose two persons(one from hyd and other from pilani)studying same group
got equal cgpa scores,then the groups they are going to get depends on competition or only score will decide the group in entire bits?
deepak as you said in the earlier post cgpa of 7.6+ fetch cs.is it for pilani or goa?we know that competition will be more in pilani

DeEpAk said...

The decision to allot duals is restricted only to the campuses itself and its purely based on CGPA. 7.6 for CS was for pilani but safe side u need to get a minimum of 8 to be assured of any BE stream as dual.

Anonymous said...

@shailen
you said "u have a bright chance of gettin cse or ece at hyd.........in d 2nd itr a person got cs hyd@307 so u may easily get that!!"

I hope so. But for that to happen, in 3rd iteration, somebody who scored higher than 306, holding a higher seat and already paid the fees should drop out. Do you think that would be possible ?

vardhan said...

@naresh..
the cutoffs for cgpa will be just like our bitsat cutoffs... there will be good competition at pilani to get higher cgpa.but it's only upto 1st year ..
@anonymous
at 306 one can easily expect cs -h as those getting 307 alredy got it..
ther may not be a big sliding in the 3rd iteration , but if u wait upto 4th iteration u will certainly get it..
the only way it gets slided in the 3rd iterationis "some people who put just 4 or 5 choices in 1st iteration will be put in waiting list (say) and they get pay 12k and get something on 2nd.. if they are not satisfied with it they won't pay the rest 30k... " in this way others will get slided up in the 3rd iteration.

vardhan said...

@anonymous who made that comment regarding that 355 matter..
sorry bhayya.....!!
the only reason for her being to put it is "closeness to her home"..
acc.to me it should be one of the reasons but not the only reason..
right??

shailen said...

@anonymous aieee classes start from 23rd so u can expect few drop outs due 2 that & also wat vardhan specified could b d other reason!!!

Adwait said...

Hey does anybody here know the approximate cut off of cse/eee at goa campus ?(after iteration 2)
I heard that someone with 307 got cse hyderabad. so any predictions as to how much it would drop to ?
Also, about how much difference would there be in cut offs at goa and hyd campuses ? a friend has got 270. can he get anything in BE ?

shailen said...

@adwait d cutoff 4 cse goa is between 320 & 315 & d cutoff 4 eee goa is around 309-307.......i think d cutoff 4 cse hyd will drop by only 3-4 marks coz not many ppl wish 2 leave cse hyd........as far as ur friend is concerned he may get msc chem or msc maths in hyd!!!!

shailen said...

@vardhan if v have 2 report at pilani/goa on 29th then wen will they allot us d hostel rooms????

DeEpAk said...

They allot you hostel rooms on the day of registration itself i.e your reporting day.

shailen said...

@deepak v can buy matress,bucket etc. in d campus itself????........coz i heard that there is a shoppin complexin d campus!!!!

vardhan said...

@BITS PILANI HYDERABAD CAMPUS:

once you enter the Rajiv rahadari which goes to karimnagar ,it will be smooth ride, unlike the city roads..!!
we can easily reach 60-80kmph on that road..it took 30 min from sec.bad..
the campus:
there is a kutcha road for about 2 km from the main highway..

if you take a glimpse at the campus you can easily come to know that it is very rockyland.. the rocksand required for building for entire campus can easily obtained from it..every where the construction work is going on ..the main building is 40%complete..(view 3 bits-h website)
another building which might be that(view 4) of lecture theatres is about 65%complete..
about bank and book stalls ,their construction will be completed in a week.
coming to hostels :
well, there are a group of two storeyed buildings which might completed in 15-20 days,
there are no pucca roads.one which leads to main building from hostels is being lead with cement.
there is no greenary in the campus..but outside the campus it's full of eucalyptus trees..
my view of the campus is quite satisfactory ..
anyhow, those wishing to join this campus do not come with huge expectations ..it will take minimum 3-6 months to set things right..
and minimum of 16-20 months of work to complete it....
the main problem with it is that there were not many workers employed....
me, do not have any complaints with it but it's upto you to have confidence in the bits administration..right now for first yearites ther won'tbe any problem..
@shailen..
you will be alloted room when ever u report there..like 26th or so.and the final confiramtion of the will be on the registration day ..
right now you might be in "chalo goa " mood.. right??
why don't u take a ride to the new campus.. it's quite pleasant??

shailen said...

@vardhan i'll try 2 have a look coz busy wid shoppin!!! u know abt our city traffic na worst one would ever see!!! i'm not in d mood 2 go 2 goa infact i'm waitin 4 d next itr so that i can go 2 pilani!!!

Adwait said...

Hey Deepak, i heard that hostel room allotment is also done some days before the 29 ? Some seniors i know of advised me to go to goa campus by 26 or 27 because according to them, in their admissions, the people who got the last some rooms couldnt get the regular first year hostel and had to be alloted a room in third year hostel. When would you advice me to go to goa ?
Also, we are 6 people from pune, maharashtra going to goa and wud prefer nearby rooms. any possibilities to that ?
Also at 306, wud i now get eee goa ?

Adwait said...

Oh by the way, i got mech goa ! Thanks a lot !

vardhan said...

good morning everyone..
raaja wher are u .. i made that post regarding bphc entirely for u..
@shailen..
in my opinion ,at 285 you might get m.sc chem pilani by 4th iteration if not by 3rd.. have u booked tickets are not...? if u wait till 3rd iteration u certainly don't get tickets to pilani ...
u have to strart early in the morning like 8 or 2pm to overcome traffic... it needs a lot of patience.. do not go now.. you can go to BPHC when u come to vocation after 1st semester

@adwait..
acc.to some seniors people go as early as 26th ir 27th..they will be alloted a room till 29th..
on 29th during registration a room will be alloted to u which is final and it is made on random basis..
only luck gets ur freinds side by side.
at 306 eee goa is certainly on the cards

DeEpAk said...

@Adwait,

I dont have much idea about goa but for pilani i can say that u get the rooms when you report there for registration. Also i dont think that good rooms are available on first come first serve basis. The room numbers are decided based on your application number. This is my guess as my roomie in first year had application number one more than me. If you are lucky all your frens can come in same hostel but i would like to give you an advice. Please mingle with many students and dont just stick to your region friends. This will benefit you a lot in the long run.

DeEpAk said...

I have written a new post on CS and IS streams at BITS. Have a look !!

http://careeradvocate.blogspot.com/2008/07/cs-is-in-bits.html

Adwait said...

@ Deepak. I will remember that one.

rajaaa said...

Hi Vardhan,
Thank U for the nice description about the campus.Somehow I preferred to Hyd.campus over Goa for the reasons obviously known to all.Hyd.campus being first year we need to adjust few shortcomings.Sametime I feel shortcomings itself should not be the dominant feature.Let us hope for the best.By the way, what is ur bitsat score and option.I believe U did get cs in hyd.
Once again thanks.

Raja said...

@adwait,
Yeah,it is true that going earlier does help u get a hostel with your batch mates. Due to the strange proportion of boys to gals after bitsat, the girls hostels arent getting filled and the hostels for guys seems insufficient, as in you cant accomodate all junior boys in 2 hostels, so some (the late comers) are given their rooms with the seniors ( dont worry, u ll only get to enjoy more with them :) ) So going early does help.

shailen said...

@vardhan ya i will surely come 2 bphc in d summer vacation 2 meet u & see d campus!!!! where in hyd do u stay?????

@deepak wat rajaa said is true or not???? i want 2 know in case of pilani & goa campus only????

vardhan said...

@raaja
my bitsat 312..
it's nice to see that u accepted the truth..
i am presently at cs hyd
above it are cs-p,eee-p,eni-p, mech-p,chem-p....
hoping to stay at the present position or chem pilani... what's ur preference order??

vardhan said...

@shailen..
i stay at Serilingampally.. do you know..??
it's near Hyderabad Central University

shailen said...

@vardhan i guess it is somewhere near osmania university!!!! i guess u may get chem pilani at least by d 4th itr!!!

rajaaa said...

Hi good morning all,

@vardan
My pref. order was the similar to U till 4th followed by cs hyd.To me,hyd campus will overtake Goa campus by the time first batch rolls out.For the people who wants to persue MBA, it is a best place for orientation.In the long run it benefits a lot.I strongly believe that u will get chem at pilani.Y dont U opt out.(ofcourse choice is yours).Faculty will be good and Hyd native advtage.Anyway one man food may be another man poison.Best wishes

vardhan said...

@shailen
oh my god.. OU is on the other side of the city and HCU on opposite site... atlest u know Gachibwli stadium? the place where afro -asian games happened.. right now asian jr.hockey is going on .. seen in the news??
@raaja..
opting out of the race ..that's what u r talking ...na??or out of BITS
there is no option to opt out..untill we report in the campus .. acc to shailen the cutoffs for chem ,if u take it might be they are right (might be minus 2 or 3)..lets say 320, mine is 312 .. there won't be a change in 3rd iteration ..but in 4th there might be ..but there won't be such a dip of 8 or 10 marks...
anyways desision once taken is taken..i will be certainly happy whatever i get..

shailen said...

@vardhan i know gachibowli std i took part in d first afro-asian games!!!!
i don't know that area so well!!!
i know a guy who got chemical pilani wid 317 so u will get it in d next or max by d 4th!!!!!

rajaaa said...

sHai good morning all

@Vardhan
Oh no! opt out. I didn't mean that.If u do not get chem at pilani after 3rd, there is a possibility of opting out from the race to other campus on the day of reporting.By now, if u feel convinced that cs at hyd is better than chem at pilani then it is possible to optout on 8th aug.That is what I meant.Any way.Choice was entirely yours.All the best.Keep updating us from pilani.

vardhan said...

@raaja
if it stays the same till the 4th
itr.then i will opt out of the race..
but it depends on the 4th itr.
we can expect no change in the 3rd one .. i know what u meant.. just joking
@shailen
you "took part" in the afro-asian games..!
that's great..

shailen said...

@deepak & vardhan i want 2 know whether d 3rd itr is 4 only those who were in d waitin list in d 1st itr or is it 4 all?????

Anonymous said...

Hello sir.
I have currently got E&I goa campus.
my bitsat score is 305. is it possible for me to get eee at goa campus ? please reply

Adwait said...

Hi Deepak.
Now, i have heard that a student can do minors in various subjects. please give an insight into the kind of subject options, the procedure of their allotment( as in are they given merit wise on marks at bits ?) and their importance in the degree. Should one choose the one which compliments their discipline or something else for versatility ?
Also about how much of cgpa makes you a good student at bits ?

siddharth said...

i have got 266, can i get an FES stream, in any of the campuses??
i have got B.pharm in pilani, is that a decent option?
also, how is B.Arch at BIT Mesra??

shailen said...

@anonymous i guess d cutoff 4 it in d 2nd itr is 310-308 ....so u can hope 2 get it by d 4th or 5 th!!!

@siddharth u should b gettin some msc course in hyd in d comin itrs!!! didn't u fill msc bio pilani/goa/hyd????? it depends on u whether u have interest in arch or not!!!!

siddharth said...

@ shailen
I have got B.pharm pilani at the moment( i made a mistake of giving B.Pharm pilani higher preference).
Is there any way that i can change to Msc Bio in any other Campus???
And can I expect an FES dual degree in Any campus??
Also please tell me by how could the FES dula degree cut off fall in the coming days
PLEASE HURRY COZ I'M DYING OF TENSION!!!!!!

shailen said...

@siddharth u can't change ur pref but u should get a fes course in hyd in d comin itrs!!! don't get tensed dude!!!

DeEpAk said...

Hi everyone !!
Work is taking its toll on me and i am unable to spend much time for this blog. Thanx to the readers for replying queries of other students.

@Shailen, One of the alums of BITS-Goa has replied for u r query related to accomodation. Hope it cleared your doubts. As far as i know, all the interations involve all the students. So for each iteration i assume that all the students who are in Waitlist and who got the seat will go through the iteration process.

@Anonymous, You have fair chances of getting EEE at goa, but generally at such higher preferences the chances of sliding becomes less.

@Adwait, What you are talking about is electives. Yes you have the freedom to choose the electives across any disciplines. Electives are chosen based on availability. You are allotted a priority number for every semester which is used to register your timetable. The better your priority number, the better are your chances to get very good timetable and electives. Priority number is generated randomly for every student. All this will sound little confusing to you right now but once you are into campus all these things will become crystal clear.

shailen said...

@deepak no probs!!! v r helping those who r in d waitlist in ur absence!!! so whether it is goa/pilani they allot hostel rooms on 29th itself!!!!now my doubts r cleared thanx 4 ur replies!!!i shall inform u wat i'll get tom!!!

shailen said...

vardhan said...

quite expectedly mine stayed at the same position
i.e cs-h
@shailen what about u? is there any increase?

others do post u r results here..
so thet we might get conclusion on cutoffs

rajaaa said...

,
Hi friends
No change in my result too.At 314 stayed with cs-h.Higher pref. of mech at pilani remain as distant dream.Anyway, I am happy with that.But for Vardhan I am sure that he will get chem at pilani after IV iteration. Best wishes.
Congratulations to all those who got into BITS from W/L and who has got higher preferences.Thanks for Deepak for this nice blog.

shailen said...

@deepak & vardhan i got upgraded 2 msc chem pilani!!! i got wat i wanted !!!quite happy!!

rajaaa said...

Hi,
Congrates shailen,
@ananymous
someone with 307 got cs at hyd.Just wait u will get cs-h for 306.
@Kunal
U will be getting mech at pilani on or before the final iteration.no doubt about that.But chem.It is a personal choice.If U r interested to pursue field-specific it is fine.Lot more oppertunities in oil refineries and MNC'S.Now environmental aspects gaining momemtum all over the globe and chem is bound to gain importance.But if u get mech for chem.best wishes.

siddharth said...

YAAR PLZ!!!
one of you tell me by how many marks will da FES cutoff fall in the next iteartion.
Normally, i am told dat the 4th one is more than the 3rd.
but here the 3rd itself has been 3 marks drop, so culd the 4th one be even more??
Will the final FES cutoff actually go down to the Waiting list cutoff (251-252)??

shailen said...

@siddharth arey yaar u will get a seat in bits!!!ur just 3 marks away!!!d cutoff in d 3rd decreased by 5 marks not 3 marks!!! there will b some decrement atleast 3 marks!!!don't worry!!!

vardhan said...

@siddharth
in fact the cutoffs may not fall at all for branches like CS, EEE etc.,
but for m.sc courses they may fall to certain extent .. to what extent we might not know..it may be between 5-10 marks .. also the misconception among the students about m.sc courses might be cleared to some extent...
but cetainly there will be fall

Anonymous said...

Can somebody advise ? I know it is an individual decision, but still, EEE Goa vs CS Hyd. Which is better in your opinions ? What do you guys think ?

DeEpAk said...

Hi,
Can someone help me with this query?
I am s.k.jayaswal, father of Harshit whose score is 259.He gave preferences as (1)BE(mech)at Pilani,Goa,Hyd
(4)M.Sc(Phy)at Pilani,Hyd,Goa,(7)M.Sc(Math)at Pilani,Hyd,Goa, (10)M.Sc(Eco) at Pilani,Hyd,Goa,(13)M.Sc(chem) at Pilani,Hyd,Goa, (16)M.Sc(Fin) & then all other engineering branches in order of demand followed by M.Sc(Info)at Pilani,Goa,Hyd (39)M.Sc(ET), (4o)M.Sc(G.S). Bio and B.Pharma not applied.

@Shailen, I guess you too faced similar problem. Can you help me in this regard?

siddharth said...

thanks a lot guys, i really needed this kind of reassurance.
The BITS 360 are killing me by not replying or telling that i may stand a chance. Now i just couldnt understand why would they still say "MAY" when , like you said, i am JUST 3 MARKS AWAY???!!!

shailen said...

hi deepak!!! my pref were not dis way!!i preffered all courses in pilani then goa & finally hyd!!!anyways i feel he should b gettin d 39th or 40th option!!!if he has interest let him join otherwise he can go 4 some other option!!!!i think he should have a coll 4 backup!!!

vardhan said...

@harshit
the only options left 4 him are m.sc-chem-hyd
m.tech-g.s
m .tech-financebetter is to take 1st or join other college..
engg.tech might be in good demand
better is to have another college for back up what are the results after 3itrs.
@siddharth
no one can predict...right???
@anonymous
as far as i am considered it will be better to take C.S -hyd
(that's what i have put in my preference list)what's u are list and results after 3 itrs.

Anonymous said...

@vardhan
At 306, 1st Itr MSc Maths Goa, 2nd itr EnI Goa, 3rd Itr EEE Goa.

Higher pref CS/EEE/EnI Pilani, CS Goa, CS Hyd

I need to decide if I should lock the campus or stay in the race for CS Hyd

vardhan said...

@anonymous
u have to report to goa on 29th..
so acc.to me u should lock the campus
and during 2nd year take elevtives related to CSetc.,
or if u want CS from the beginning itself u have a good chance to make it to CS-H...it's upto u and your convenience
the cutoff 4 CS-h after 3rd itr is 307 or 308...

vardhan said...

@shailen
as u predicted i am coming to pilani
after 4th itr.
i got chem.engg.in pilani and very happy with it.
@raaja
sorry yar, we could not meet..
have u got any change
@deepak
thank u very much deepak,
it was your advice that made me land in bits with a good course.
i got chem.engg at pilani..
what's your opinion??

Pradeep said...

At 306, reported to Goa, slid to CS-H, very happy.

Goa is a beautiful campus, hate to give it up, but closer to home wins :D(and a higher preference branch)

Library was good, but looked only 1/4th full, I am wondering what the library at hyd will be like...

Many people locked campus. I saw few of them not happy with their preference order, wished they could change it.

7 students moved from Goa to Hyd. About 3 moved to Civil, 2 to EEE, 1 to info. sys, myself to CS.

19 moved from Goa to Pilani, 4 or 5 to Mech. I did not see any upgrades to EnI/EEE/CS Pilani.

About 75 people within Goa got upgraded, I saw about 10 upgraded to EEE, just a handful to CS, most of the rest within MSc.

It appears the cutoff for Pilani top 3 were within 330 ~ 340. Mech around 320. Goa CS around 314, Hyd CS 306. This is all based on what people talked among themselves

@Vardhan, I was hoping to meet you at Hyd on 8th, but congrats and all the best for pilani.

@Raja, I hope to see you on 8th, if you did not slide yet.

I am hoping to see some of my old friends from Bhavans Hyd and Sri Chaitanya SR nagar, but i dont know if any of them are joining.

A parents experience:
Goa admission process was excellent. Almost everything went perfect, efficient and quick.

We went to the campus on 28th. just wanting to check out the campus, get 'acclimatized' thinking that hostel room will be allotted on 29th after admisssion. Since we were going to just to check out, we did not take any documents with us. When we reached there, lot of acitivity was on, some were already allotted rooms. The in-charge there asked us for some kind of proof that we got admission so that he can allot the room for my son. Unfortuantely we had nothing to show. He then asked us to go with somebody, got the print out from the computer center about the allotment and used that as a proof, based on which hostel room was alloted. Luckily we remembered the application number, which was the main key for everything that goes on there. What a flexibility, I can not imagine this at any other institute, it is a wonderful feeling.

Next day, they gave us slots for admission at half hour intervals. The process was quick, the student is asked to enter all the relevant information in to the computer. In about two to three hours, hundreds of students got admitted. They were given BITS bulletin, academic regulations and then timetable. This documentation is very comprehensive and informative, some of which is already there on website. You are supposed to keep this all through your 4 years and refer to it at appropriate times.

At 6PM the acting director Prof Raman addressed the parents and students. This was organized in the massive state of the art auditorium, seating capacity was something like 2000 ?? with a gigantic screen. It felt like I was in some iMAX theater or something. The ambience in the auditorium felt like the Hyd Satya Sai Nigamagam. It was about an hour and a half interaction, was very professional, educative and informative.

He talked about BITS philosophy, how it teaches character rather than just a knowledge transfer. As a parent I felt very good, that my son deserved to go there. I wished I could go to this institute 25 years ago.

The greatest point was it is all merit based admission. The director narrated an incident years ago how our late PM Mrs Indira Gandhi tried to get a seat for somebody and Mr Birla explained to her the process of selection and how Mrs Gandhi said great, then let me not interfere with your merit system.

We went through the orientation process next day. Halfway through it, we came to know that my son slid to Hyd, so went and got the campus transfer certificate, vacated the hostel and returned to Hyd.

We will be going to Hyd campus on the 8th. I heard there will be initial hiccups because of the new campus. For the first month or two, there will be two students per room, once the hostel are ready, they will be shifted to single accommodation.

I am looking forward to the process at Hyd, I am not expecting it to be as great as Goa, it will be interesting to see how well they can replicate it at Hyd.

Hello everyone,
I am back after a short break. I was busy with other responsibilities.

@Vardhan, Congrats ! Chemical at Pilani is one of the bests in india. But do remember that engineering life is more about exploring things urself rather waiting to get spoon fed. There are many instances where students have bagged very good internship projects, employment offers, higher studies options just by exploring various avenues. So keep this in mind and start your journey with a bang !

@Sesha, Thank you for the comment. It will be indeed helpful to all the students who got admission at GOA campus
