    Frequently Asked Questions

    Frequently Asked Questions 

    Ques. If a candidate only prepares with NCERT Books is that adequate? 

    Ans. NCERT books are the best source to build a strong foundation and yes, most of the questions do come from NCERTs. Although this is the case, the candidate should practise lots of questions from a variety of other sources. There is no requirement to prepare as much as JEE Advanced. 

    Close to 60-75% of the questions that appear in the examination are directly contrived from NCERT textbooks for the Chemistry section. Concurrently with the trend evident in Organic Chemistry, most of the questions that remain require the applications of concepts and mechanisms explained in the text. 

    Another strategy that has also been proven useful is solving previous year’s question papers.Primarily Chemistry, and then Mathematics or Physics. 

    Ques. Do the VITEEE 2020 questions follow the prescribed syllabus? 

    Ans. Yes, the questions are strictly based on the chapters that are prescribed in the VITEEE syllabus. No other chapters are included. You can follow the syllabus and keep practising the previous years’ question papers to have a proper idea of the VITEEE exam. 

    Ques. What are the most important topics for scoring well in VITEEE 2020?

    Ans. Just go through the syllabus released by VIT and ensure that you have covered everything. Read NCERT properly and be thorough with each of the chapters. 

    Ques. Do the questions repeat in VITEEE?

    Ans. Mostly questions are repeated in Chemistry. There are very few chances of questions being repeated in maths and physics frequently. Keep practicing the previous year question papers, as all of the questions cannot be completely predicted. If the trend is to be followed, most of the questions are repeated in Chemistry. 

    Ques. What topics are important to cover in the English section? 

    Ans. Candidates must remember to cover comprehension questions as well as grammar and pronounciation based questions. It is very easy to make silly mistakes in these sections, especially for students who don’t consider English as their strong suit.
