Knowingly or unknowingly, every topper invariably takes inspiration from the Zig Ziglar quote ”You were born to win, but to be a winner you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win."

The Birla Institute of Technology and Science popularly known as BITS which is a multi-campus university with campuses in India at Pilani (Rajasthan), Goa and Hyderabad and international campus at Dubai (UAE) gets its position among top ranking universities for a variety of reasons.

BITS has been accredited by National Assessment and Accreditation Council – NAAC with a CGPA of 3.71 out of 4 and VERY GOOD status. For the year 2009, surveys by leading media giants which include India Today, Outlook and LiveMint have ranked BITS Pilani among top 10 T schools. BITS is well known for its transparency in selection criteria based on the online BITSAT examination for all its degree programs.

One special feature of BITS admissions for the past several decades has been the Direct Admission to Board Toppers from different Central and State Boards which has given year after year, a very vital input of highly meritorious students from all over India. It is essential that the Board topper should have taken Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry which must be included in calculating the aggregate.
