VIT University, formerly called Vellore Engineering College, is a deemed university under Section 3 of the UGC Act. Founded in 1984, as Vellore Engineering College, by Mr. G. Viswanathan, the institution offers 20 undergraduate, 34 postgraduate, 4 integrated and 4 research programs. VITEEE is the yearly entrance examination conducted by VIT to offer admissions to the two campuses of VIT vis-a-vis VIT, Vellore & VIT, Chennai. VITEEE 2018 started from 5th April, 2018 and the last slot is the last slot of 16th April, 2018. In this article we shall discuss the VITEEE Cut off, opening & closing ranks in previous years, to help you gauge your VITEEE performance this year. Let’s talk a bit about VITEEE Answer Key first.

VITEEE 2018 Answer Key

VITEEE results are out. VITEEE 2018 counselling procedure is out too.  Answer keys will be provided subject-wise vis-a-vis Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics & Biology. It is popularly known that a candidate must score at least 90 Marks to secure a seat in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at the Vellore Campus, in the first category itself. You can get the same seat, in 1st category, at VIT Chennai if your rank is around 12000. Let’s discuss a bit about these categories.

VITEEE Categories

VIT admissions follow four categories – 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th. As you move from a lower numbered category to a higher numbered one, your chances of landing a good department improve. The catch being that your admission fee goes up by 1 lac INR for a category jump. So, if your rank is 12000 you can either land a CSE seat at VIT Chennai through 1st category or land the CSE department at VIT Vellore, of course paying a higher fees. In this article we shall limit to category-1 VITEEE cut off.

VITEEE Cut Off – 1st Category

It is expected that if a candidate’s score lies between 70 & 80 marks, they’d get a call for first round of VITEEE counselling. The table below shows how your rank goes with your VITEEE score.
