The Vellore Institute of Technology, known as VIT is an Indian institute of higher education and a deemed university.  It is considered to be one of the Top Private Universities in India. VIT has campuses in two locations, Vellore and Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. It conducts the entrance exam for courses into its U.G. programs where about 20 disciplines are available. The examination is known as VITEEE, or the Vellore Institute of Technology Engineering Entrance Exam and is conducted in online format every year in the month of April. Apart from the 20 U. G. disciplines, VIT also provides 34 P. G. (post-graduate), 4 integrated and 4 research programs. Let’s have a detailed understanding of VITEEE Exam Pattern.

VITEEE Exam Pattern:

The following are the details the candidate needs to keep in mind with regards to the VITEEE Exam Pattern.

The exam is a Computer Based Test (CBT) that is held in centers spread across the country and also abroad. Questions are based on the specified syllabus from the links given above.

When it comes to VITEEE Exam Pattern, candidates have options to attempt papers in either:

  1. Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and English (PCM variant)
  2. Physics, Chemistry, Biology and English (PCB variant)

The above selection has to be done at the time of slot booking itself. Candidates who attempt the PCM variant of the exam are eligible for all the B. Tech Programs offered at the university. Candidates attempting PCB variant are eligible for B. Tech. in Biomedical Engineering, Biotechnology, Computer Science and Engineering (with specialization in Bioinformatics available).

Duration of the exam is for 2 hours 30 minutes conducted in 3 slots on each day. The sessions are:

  1. Session 1: 9:00 am to 11:30 am
  2. Session 2: 12:30 pm to 3:00 pm
  3. Session 3: 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm

Paper is a Multiple Choice Question Paper. It consists of 125 questions in each of the PCM and PCB formats.

120 questions of PCM/PCB format. (40 Questions each from Physics/Chemistry/Mathematics/Biology) and 5 questions of English. There are NO NEGATIVE MARKS for wrong answers.

Since this exam does not have negative marks, it is advisable that the candidate try to guess the closest plausible answers to questions which they don’t exactly know the answer to.

Syllabus for VITEEE 2016
