Since everybody seems to be in BITSAT mode these days, I thought it’s time I should do something more about it than studying throughout the day. Naman suggested me to check out the BITSAT sample questions software that BITS has made available on its website. You can download the sample questions software for PCM by clicking here and PCB by clicking here. Both are condensed, 30 minute tests with only five questions from each subject.
So I installed the software on my system using Wine, and just out of curiosity, checked out its folder. Turns out, they keep a Microsoft DOC file of all the questions under the folder titled images1 under the filename sampleqns_all.doc. The biology folks are out of luck here, because the DOC file included with theirs doesn’t include the biology questions (and is the same as the PCM set). In case you’re feeling lazy, then you can click here to download a PDF version of the official BITSAT 2008 Sample Paper.
Check out their inc folder and you’ll find the code for that. Plus, more stuff – to disable right-clicking (pointless, if you ask me), and the timer. You can even see the HTML files themselves which are being used, named etest.htm, ptest.htm, mtest.htm etc. Made in Visual Studio 7.1.
