Preparation Tips for VITEEE 2020

Given below are some preparation tips for VITEEE 2020. VITEEE 2020 is comparatively easier than other competitive exams. In order to attain a good score in VITEEE, students must be good at the basics from NCERT syllabus.

  • Create Time Table: The first step to begin with the preparation for the VITEEE exam is to prepare a time table and ensure that you stick to it. The students must pay detailed focus on learning the concepts in a more elaborate way.
  • Sample Papers: Start practising more sample papers so that you can become familiar with the exam pattern and about the latest changes that have been introduced in the exam.
  • Mock Test: Try and solve more questions of different styles and attempt more mock tests to train you in completing the exam within the time limit.
  • Focus: Since the VITEEE exam is just a few days away, it is important that you stay focused and don’t lose your self-confidence. With utmost dedication, one can easily deliver his/her best in the exam.
  • Health: A healthy mind and body helps in better preparation. Do take breaks from study and have some leisure time to yourself.
  • 6 Hours Study: Also, take enough sleep. It doesn’t matter if you are a night owl or a morning person, sleeping for at least 6 hours is important. Short naps might also help the mind to ease.

VITEEE 2020 Sample Question Paper

VITEEE 2020 Answer Key

Usually before the results of an examination, the Answer Key for various questions asked in the exam is released. VIT does not release the Answer Key for VITEEE. Although, Answer Key for VITEEE is released by multiple coaching institutes and other online platforms. These answer keys are unofficial but can be trusted as they are devised by some top faculties of India. If a student finds any abnormalities in his/her result, he/she can contact the VITEEE authorities for the same.

VITEEE 2020 Result

The results of the VITEEE exam are anticipated to be announced during the last week of August 2020 now as the exam has been delayed by over 3 months due to COVID-19 outbreak. The merit list will be prepared according to the total marks obtained by the candidates in the VITEEE 2020. While announcing the VITEEE Result, the rank of each candidate will be communicated through an SMS to their registered mobile number as well as an email to their registered email address.

Steps to check VITEEE Result 2020

Candidates can easily check their VITEEE 2020 Result by entering their application number, date of birth and verification code (captcha). VIT will also prepare a merit list on the basis of the marks scored by the candidates in VITEEE 2020. Given below are the steps to follow to check VITEEE Result 2020-

Step 1: Head over to the official website of Vellore Institute of Technology i.e. vit.ac.in and look for a link of “Get Result”.

Step 2: Once you click on it, you will be redirected to a new page. Click on “VITEEE 2020 Result” tab to check the results.

Step 3: This step will take you to a new window. Here, enter your VITEEE Application number, Date of Birth and Verification Code (captcha).

VITEEE Check Result

Step 4: After this, click on ‘Submit’. VITEEE Result 2020 will be displayed on the screen. Press Ctrl + P to save the result as PDF. Candidates are advised to download the copy of their result for future reference.

Details in VITEEE Result

Details present in the VITEEE Result page, or VITEEE scorecard change from time to time. It is possible that VITEEE might switch to a percentile rank rather than Numbered ranks from this year. Details present in VITEEE Result are given below (subject to change)-

  1. Application Number: VITEEE Result 2020 will display the Application number of the candidate. This is different from VITEEE Roll Number on Admit Card.
  2. Applicant Name: The name as registered with the online portal will also be displayed.
  3. Gender: Gender will indicate if the candidate is male or female.
  4. Date of Birth: It indicates the date format of the date, month and year.
  5. Rank: VITEEE Result 2020 will also display the rank obtained by the candidate.

Equating Methodology of VITEEE Result

Equating Methodology/Normalization will be adopted to prepare the VITEEE 2020 Result. This is a statistical process which is preferred for standardizing the scores of the test. It is followed to arrive at a fair comparison while preparing the merit list and ranking of candidates. The equating method is considered in order to adjust the scores of the candidates who have opted for different forms of the test.

While the statistical procedure used for calculating the percentile ranks of the candidates is Equipercentile Equating. It offers a generalised rank for the candidate for different forms or numbers of candidates. This is a unique and invariant position of a candidate in a particular group. For example, 95 percentile score denotes that in a particular test, 95 percent of the candidates have scored below the scorer of 95 percentile. While only 5 percentile have scored above. Equipercentile Equating will be used for all the various sessions separately and with that, normalization procedure will be followed.

VITEEE 2020 Rank List

According to the official exam brochure-

  • Rank list for VITEEE 2020 will be prepared based on the percentile score secured by the candidates.
  • Rank will be intimated using an SMS on the registered mobile number.
  • As final ranks are determined with very careful analysis, VIT has denied from making any changes in the same. Provision for re-ranking or re-totalling are not possible. Raw scores, photocopies of answer sheets/your attempts, will not be shared.
  • If appearing for VITEEE more than once, candidacy will be cancelled.
