BITS HD Syllabus 2017  BITS, Pilani has announced the BITS HD 2017 Syllabus for the online entrance test held for the M.E programmes offered by the university. The syllabus for BITS HD 2017 announced by the university contains the specific topics that candidates must study. BITS HD syllabus 2017 is discipline specific and is separate for each discipline. Candidates can prepare better for online test if they know the syllabus for BITS HD 2017. The university has also mentioned the reference books for each discipline with specific emphasis of the topics to be studied. The BITS HD exam will consist of two parts out of which the first test namely test 1 is mandatory. Candidates will be tested in core maths, English and logical reasoning in this test. The BITS HD 2017 syllabus also mentions the topics for this section making it easy for students to prepare better for the online test. While test 2 is discipline specific, the syllabus for BITS HD mentions the topics in detail for this part too. Candidates applying for M.E Software systems will have to appear for a special test instead of Part 2 for which the BITS HD 2017 syllabus is also given. Interested and eligible candidates can check the detailed BITS HD 2017 syllabus on this page for each discipline and all tests as announced by the university.
