There are two ways of applying for BBA program in Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology, KIIT.

The exam pattern for almost all BBA entrances for different universities is more or less the same.
So whether you're now up to clearing UGAT/ DUJAT/ SET/ KIITEE, you'll find yourself facing similar type of questions which are described below:
Mathematical Ability/ Quantitative Aptitude:
This section of the exam focuses on one's mathematical skills. It generally comprises of questions from 7th to 10th class and has little to do with 12th maths. As a result, any candidate with good command on the basics of Mathematics can crack this section easily.

- Synonyms & Antonyms
- English comprehensions
- English proficiency
- Idioms and Phrases
- One word substitution
- Spelling Mistakes
- Rearrangement of a word in sentences
- Rearrangement of a sentence in paragraph
- English Usage errors

- Inappropriate usage of words
Now this answers your first question about syllabus for BBA entrance exam.
About whether or not you should apply for KIIT/KSOM depends on what you expect from the college itself. Generally, the best colleges for pursuing BBA are the following, for a variety of reasons:
- Christ University, Bangalore (CUET entrance exam)
- Delhi University, Delhi (DUJAT entrance exam)
- NMIMS University, Mumbai (NMIMS-NPAT entrance exam)
- Symbiosis International University, Pune (SET entrance exam)
- IIM-Indore (IPMAT entrance exam)
All the above colleges have their brand names for the BBA program way over the private universities like Amity, KIIT, MIT and you-name-it.
KIIT University has following achievements:
- 8th among private universities.
- 42nd Among Indian Universities Ranked by National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF)
- 30th for KSOM by NIRF
- 'A' grade NAAC accredition
- Tier 1 accredition by Washington Accord (only 6 insititutes apart from IITs are accredited this)
So, it's not like KIIT-KSOM is not a good college- it is great, and is becoming better even for a young college who hasn't even completed its 20 years of existence and has made great achievements in its years. Many good companies visit KIIT. The package ranges from 2.2 LPA to 34LPA, and has average package of 6LPA. Faculty is impressive and knowledgable enough, and the KSOM infrastructure is said to be the best in KIIT. What more does one need in a management school?
However, in India, brand and age of the college (older, the better) matters a lot for which the above colleges are comparitively much better options for pursuing BBA course.
My opinion: If you're planning to pursue MBA after BBA (which you totally should), then IIT-Indore is a great and popular option for its 5 years integrated program: BBA+MBA.
I hope this helps. For any additional information, leave a comment.
