VITEEE 2016 Paper Analysis 

VITEEE 2016 was conducted successfully on April 6, 2016, across 112 cities in India. It was a moderate to difficult level exam. Generally, most of the questions are asked from the prescribed syllabus of VIT. The VITEEE Physics paper is moderate difficulty level paper. The questions are asked from various topics such as Electromagnetic Induction and Alternating Current, Energy and Power, Properties of Matter, Laws of Motion & Work, Current Electricity, etc.

The difficulty level of the VITEEE Chemistry Paper is again moderate. The topics with most number of questions are Thermodynamics, Chemical Equilibrium, Atomic Structure p,d and f – Block Elements, Electrochemistry, Chemical Kinetics and Chemical Equilibrium. The VITEEE Mathematics section can be described as easy to moderate difficulty paper. The questions are evenly distributed among all the sections.

VITEEE Biology paper is the most difficult among all the sections of VITEEE 2016. The questions are asked from different chapters like Genetics and evolution, Cell and Molecular Biology, Taxonomy, Reproduction and Human health & diseases. The VITEEE English paper is relatively easy. The questions are asked from English Grammar, Pronunciation and Comprehension.

Refer to the below table for detailed analysis of VITEEE 2016:

Level of DifficultyNumber of easy questionsNumber of Medium QuestionsNumber of Tough QuestionsTotal

The paper was close to the declared VITEEE exam pattern. The questions were conceptual questions and so it would be advised that students work on their basic conceptual knowledge and fundamentals.

In addition to these remarks, the candidates found the physics section to be tough as compared to what was expected; however there were direct questions in the paper. The candidates also found that the test comprised of less analytical questions.
