VITEEE Syllabus 2017

VITEEE Syllabus 2017 is decided by VIT University each year. It is similar to class XII syllabus of CBSE and Tamil Nadu State Board of Higher Secondary. VITEEE 2017 Syllabus comprises questions from Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Biology, and English. There are 120 questions in the question paper of VITEEE. Each subject will carry 40 questions, except English. It will only contain 5 questions.

Candidates appearing in VIT Engineering Entrance Examination 2017 from April 5-16, 2017, must be thorough with VITEEE Syllabus 2017 to avoid any last-minute surprises. The duration of VITEEE 2017 is 2.5 hours.

VITEEE is organised for candidates seeking admission to B.Tech. programmes offered in both Chennai and Vellore campuses of VIT University. It is an all India level entrance examination conducted to fill approximately 5000 seats. VITEEE 2017 Result is expected to release on or before April 24, 2017. 

Candidates must go through VITEEE 2017 syllabus beforehand so that they can prepare well for the examination. They are also advised to read all the instructions carefully before start attempting paper. Read complete subject-wise VITEEE Syllabus 2017 from this article. 

VITEEE 2017 Exam Pattern

VITEEE 2017 is scheduled from April 5-13, 2017. It will be conducted three times per day, in three different time slots. Candidates can book their examination day and time slot on the official website of the university i.e.

VITEEE question paper is divided into four different sections (PCME/ PCBE), containing total no. of 125 questions. Candidates are advised to attempt all the questions because there is no negative marking. Practicing as many of VITEEE Sample Papers 2017 will help you analyze your strong and weak areas. Learning about VITEEE Exam Pattern should be your first to-do. This can help you find out the relative weightage of each section and subject.

Subject-wise VITEEE Syllabus 2017

Syllabus for VITEEE 2017 is similar to class XII syllabus of CBSE and Tamil Nadu State Board of Higher Secondary. Getting thorough with it beforehand helps you have a fair idea of what the actual paper may be. Here, we have detailed out VITEEE Syllabus 2017 for all the subjects viz. Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics and English. Some of the important points to keep in mind before your preparation session are:

  1. Questions number starting from 121 to 125 in the question paper will contain questions from English. Questions asked from this subject will be of multiple-choice in nature.

  2. Question numbers 121, 122 and 123 are comprehension questions. They are based on short passages (30 -50 words) or lines of poems (2 -3) or dialogue (2 exchanges).

  3. Question number 124 and 125 are based on English Grammar and Pronunciation

  4. The candidates should read carefully the questions that follow and choose the correct answer from the options given for each question.

Candidates can read the subject-wise syllabus of VITEEE 2017 below. All the subjects cover various topics which are also mentioned separately.
