Must have scored at least:

  • 60% aggregate in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics (or Biology) for General candidates
  • 50% aggregate for SC/ST candidates and citizens of J&K, north eastern states.  

2) I have opted for Physics, Chemistry and Biology in +2. For which branches of B.Tech. am I eligible to seek admission, if I qualify in VITEEE?

You will be eligible only for Three B.Tech. Degree  programmes::
1) Bioinformatics
2) Biotechnology and
3) Bio-Medical Engineering.

3) I have studied Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, in +2. Which branches in B.Tech. am I eligible to seek admission to, if I qualify in VITEEE?

You are eligible for all the Sixteen B.Tech. Degree programmes.

4) I have secured 58% in PCM / PCB in qualifying examination, but in 2016 I am appearing for the Improvement Examination, can I apply?

Yes, you can apply, but at the time of counselling you should produce the proof that you have secured 60% aggregate in PCM / PCB.

5) I have secured 60% over all aggregate marks in the qualifying examination, but I have not secured 60% aggregate in PCM / PCB, am I eligible for VITEEE?

Sorry, you are not eligible.

6) I scored a very high percentage in my qualifying +2 examination. Will this be taken into consideration for my admission into VIT or will this be considered on par with my marks scored in VITEEE for admission?

Your admission into B.Tech. will be based purely on your merit in the VITEEE.

7) What is the syllabus for VITEEE?

The syllabus for VITEEE is available in the VITEEE Information brochure.

8) Are the diploma holders eligible to apply for VITEEE and join directly in the second year?

Diploma holders are not eligible to apply for VITEEE.

9) Is there any special fee concession for the state toppers in H.Sc. examination?

Special fee concession for topper’s of each state (in their State Board Exams) – full tuition fee waiver for all the 4 years.

10) What will be the pattern of the question paper?

The question paper will only consist of multiple choice questions.

11) What reference books should be consulted?

The course of VITEEE is almost the same as that of JEE Mains with a few topics added and a few topics omitted but they do not really account for much difference. Still in addition, “Comprehensive Guide to VITEEE” and some mock tests of the same would be enough for the study material.

12) How are the marks awarded in VITEEE ?

  • Each question carries one mark.
  • No negative marks for wrong answers.
