 BAJA Aptitude test is conducted by BAJA SAE India for selecting candidates in different companies taking part in the event. The test is for the undergraduate engineering students who are team members of the participating teams.
About the Event
BAJA is organized globally by the Society of Automotive Engineers, headquartered in the USA. The BAJA SAE tasks the students to design, fabricate and validate a single seater four – wheeled off road vehicle to take part in series of events spread over a course of 3-4 days that test the vehicle for the sound engineering practices that have gone into it, the agility of the vehicle in terms of gradability, speed, acceleration and maneuverability characteristics and finally its ability to endure that back breaking durability test. The event has spanned across six countries – USA, Mexico, South Africa, Korea, Brazil and India.
SAE INDIA Organises BAJA every year in association with top notch Automobile companies.
It is staged in two round, Virtual BAJA and the Final event. Virtual round usually held in the month of August in Bengaluru after registrations in April-May and the Race event in February for those who successfully qualify virtuals, near an Industrial town, Pithampur, close to Indore in Madhya Pradesh.
About the On Site Placement Opportunity: 
Every year around 7-8 good Automobile companies recruit around 60-70 students from Baja through a test called Baja Aptitude Test (BAT). Around 1200-1500 ELIGIBLE students sit for this drive. Now, the question is how to crack it ?
They don’t give you any syllabus nor they give any clue of the pattern. So, students participating have confusion in their mind about this drive and about how to prepare for it.

1. Meeting Eligibility to take BAT
2. BAT, the written test

    Outstanding! 5

    I spent at least 2 hours daily working on the course and this course week took me a month to complete. The problem sets are designed in such a way that one is forced to read and do further research to accomplish them.
