The following table represents the allotment of total marks for each part and section and marks allocated for each question. The total marks allocated for the entire examination was 120.
|Part||Section||Total Number of Questions||Marks for each question||Total Marks|
|Part – I||Physics||40||1||40|
|Part – II||Chemistry||40||1||40|
|Part – III||Mathematics/ Biology||40||1||40|
Here are some viewpoints of aspirants who appeared for VITEEE 2019:
1. An aspirant from Nasik, Maharashtra, who took VITEEE says that all the papers were easy to answer when compared to that of JEE Main 2016. The questions from subjects like Chemistry and Physics were found to be average, but he found that the questions appearing in the Mathematics paper were the toughest to answer. Overall, the papers were good. The aspirant has tried to attempt all the questions in all three parts namely Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. He expects a good score and he is hoping for the best.
2. Another student reveals that VITEEE Question Paper can be rated as average and Chemistry was easier to answer, which was expected. All papers carried questions that were concept based. He was strong in Physics as well, hence, he could solve all the topics that he studied for JEE Main 2016. He tried to solve each and every question and aims to gain a good rank. The only difference that he found between the two examinations of JEE Main and VITEEE was that there were a few topics which were not included in JEE Advanced course, but had to be studied for VITEEE 2019.
Some questions in sections I & II were easy while some were of medium difficulty level. In Mathematics, the questions were tough. Subject-wise break up of easy, medium and tough questions in all the parts is reflected in the following table:
|Level of Difficulty||Physics – Part – I||Chemistry – Part – II||Mathematics/ Biology – Part – III||Total|
|Number of easy questions||30||20||-||60|
|Number of medium questions||10||20||5||25|
|Number of difficult questions||-||-||35||35|
VITEEE cut off is calculated on the basis of various factors such as the number of received application forms, number of students who appeared for VITEEE, number of seats available and average performance given by the students. Cut off for both the campuses will be released separately, based on the availability of seats.
VIT University does not announce any VITEEE Cut off. However, to predict the ranks of the candidates in VITEEE exam, the university uses the Equating Method. VIT University calculates the percentile rank of the candidates based on the test forms of candidates. For different test forms, the same percentile score is considered equivalent. However, it can be considered as the closing rank for admission to various courses in engineering.
VIT University will calculate the percentile rank of the candidate based on the application form the candidates. For different application forms, same percentile score will equivalent for all branch of the engineering. Below is the VITEEE Branch and Campus Wise Closing Rank for the Engineering Branch candidates.
Candidates securing a rank will be eligible for admissions in VIT Vellore Campus. The closing rank for Computer Science and Engineering (with Bioinformatics as specialization) went up till 13500 (2016) while for Computer Science and Engineering, it went up till 7000 (2016).
