VITEEE 2017 was conducted from April 5 to April 16, 2017 for admission of candidates who wish to pursue B.Tech at the Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT) University. A total of 2.23 lakh had registered to appear for th exam last year.
VITEEE is a computer-based exam, which is conducted in three sessions every day - 9 am to 11:30 am, 12: 30 pm to 3 pm and 4 pm to 6:30 pm. The duration of the exam is two and a half hours and it is spread across four sections - Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics/Biology and English. A total of 125 questions are asked in the exam and candidates can score a maximum of 125 marks in the exam, as every correct answer is awarded 1 mark. While Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics/ Biology had 40 questions each, English had 5 questions. There was no negative marking in the paper.
Overall Difficulty Level
According to most of the students who appeared for the examination, VITEEE was pretty easy in comparison with the JEE Main 2017 offline exam, which was conducted on April 2, 2017. In case of VITEEE, the most important factor was time management. Since students had 150 minutes to answer 125 questions, those who had their concepts clear were able to solve the entire paper in time.
Another feedback that we received from students was some questions were absolutely conceptual while there were some that were based on direct formulas. Basically, VITEEE 2017 turned out to be a test of speed and concepts. Only those students were able to perform well who had practiced a lot for the paper.
