As an engineering aspirant, your biggest worries are probably how to prepare for entrance exam, and how to prepare for board exams. While it is undoubtedly your hard work and determination that will lead to success, several other factors are necessary to be kept in mind during exam preparations. Students from all over India take VITEEE to get admission in VIT University Vellore and Chennai campuses. Level of competition is high considering the large number of test takers (more than 2 lakh).

1. Know the exam pattern of VITEEE

All the questions are Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ) type.

2. Stay focused and avoid distractions

Allot specific hours for studies and make sure you have no distractions during these study hours. Distractions may include TV shows, talking to friends, meeting people. Do not entertain visitors while studying, or phone calls. Social media and internet should also not be accessed during study hours, unless for academic purposes.

3. Study topic wise and stick to the syllabus

The syllabus of the VITEEE largely consists of topics you have been taught in class 11 and 12 science and mathematics. Prepare a study plan dividing all the topics and finish all the topics you have assigned in this plan on a daily / weekly basis. You should ideally complete preparation before your board exams and allot time after board exams for revision.

4. Do not panic

Studying and learning are events that should be enjoyed as a knowledge absorbing process. However due to exam pressure students are not able to do so, and instead of a healthy event, exam preparation leads to panic moments. You are bound to feel panicked at some point, but you have to overcome these moments to move forward. Believe in yourself and keep pushing harder to achieve success!

5. Continuous assessment facilitated by mock tests and sample papers

VITEEE is an online computer based test. An online CBT is simply where questions appear on screen, you have to use the mouse to select the correct option. More than getting familiar with CBTs, your focus should be understanding the exam environment and working towards solving such types of questions which are asked in the test. Solve as many sample papers and mock tests as you can to do this.

6. Learning to solve MCQs

Each question has four options, out of which only one option is the correct answer. A smart student will know that such an exam format has a huge benefit over subjective questions. To take this to your advantage, solve as many multiple choice questions as you can.
