ITSAT 2018 Exam Pattern

ICFAI Tech School Admission Test (ITSAT) is an All India Admission Test organized by ICFAI Foundation for Higher Education (IFHE), Hyderabad. ITSAT or Admission Test for ICFAI Tech is the former name of ITSAT.

  • ITSAT 2018 will be conducted in offline mode as well as in online mode.
  • It is usually conducted in the month of May.
  • Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) are asked in ITSAT exam.
  • ITSAT 2018 syllabus consists of standard 12th grade (10+2) topics.
  • The topics are from English, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics only.
  • Admissions are given on the basis of ITSAT marks as well as JEE Mains marks.
  • Online exam for ITSAT follows the process of date and slot booking. The exam is conducted over the span of 10 days.
  • Offline examination is held only once and the date is fixed.

ITSAT  is an aptitude test for entering into engineering courses offered by ICFAI University. It is a national level undergraduate entrance examination conducted every year for admission to various courses.
