Rohan says, "If you genuinely want something, don't wait for it- teach yourself to be impatient" 

Last Updated - September 19, 2016

Rohan cracked the VITEEE in 2012 and secured 2801 rank in it. He was offered admission from both the VIT campuses but he chose Vellore campus for his engineering studies. He says, firstly identify the strengths and weaknesses in the beginning so that during preparation one can focus and improvise on the weaker areas. Don’t be overconfident about the stronger sections, just polish them and practice regularly. Given below is the questionnaire that we had with him and he shares his thoughts on preparation tips.

Ques. How would you rate the following Preparation Strategy in terms of their efficiency in your story?

Coaching ClassesOnline Study MaterialCoaching Study MaterialMock & Sample Test PapersStudy GroupsSelf-Study
ModerateLowHighLowVery HighNot Applicable

Ques. Name the Coaching Institute you joined and its role in your story.

Ans. I did a crash course for one month in Cambridge classes just after the board exams. Teachers were good and they cleared our few genuine concepts. As VITEEE covers most of the class 12th syllabus, so the board preparations did help. They kept us in motion but mainly it was my previous learning which helped a lot.

Ques. Rate the Role of you Coaching Institute (Classroom or Online) in cracking VITEEE?

Ans. 3

Ques. How did you manage VITEEE preparations along with your Class 12th exams?

Ans. I didn’t prepare for VITEEE. I just prepared for class 12 board exams and that is all which came in exams. I don’t think there is a specific need of preparations for VITEEE if you are preparing for AIEEE (during that time). Just preparing for class 12 would be enough. Understanding every concept is important rather than going in too much detail.  

Ques. What were your Strong and Weak areas? How did you prepare and what special efforts did you put for improving them?  

Ans. I gave special hours to some of the formula based problems in physics and as usual in chemistry and mathematics.

My strength was Chemistry and Mathematics. So I ensured that I don’t lose any mark in chemistry. As chemistry is time saving if you know the answers or the tricks. Mathematics is totally on practice. Since I practiced very much I used to determine the time question will take. On the basis of it I used to attempt or leave the question.

Weakness: I was not that good in Physics. So I used to opt minimum damage policy. I don’t waste even single sec if I don’t get the question first time. In the end when the Chemistry and Mathematics were done I used to again read the questions of physics.

Ques. What is your Five Point Rule to excel VITEEE 2016?

Ans. It is needless to mention, the amount and quality of resources available online is unmatched and therefore you can use those resources.

  • Try to solve last 10 year question papers of VITEEE.
  • Try to make a list of all formulae and small concepts.

While you are solving previous years’ questions, for every question find the topics related to it and make sure you understand it. So in this way we move towards learning more important things.

Ques. What mock papers did you take?

Ans. I didn’t joined any test series. But I did solve previous years’ question banks of VITEEE which helped a lot. Also sometimes I used to solve MCQs from ABC and Pradeep (reference books). But there are some online mock series such as

  1. Meritnation
  2. Topper learning (2nd preference)
  3. Learn Next (They have Video Solutions of CBSE NCERT Textbook)

Ques. Websites you followed regularly for practicing sample papers and get updates?      

Ans. I didn’t follow any specific website. But I used to download the notes and list of formulae for last minute preparations. But I can recommend

  • For Physics, Refer to 'Pradeep Kshterpal' channel on YouTube.
  • For Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics and Biology refer 'M Learning India' on YouTube. "

Ques. Physics: Strategy and Books Followed

Ans. If you are studying for JEE:

  1. Concepts of Physics, Vol.-I, by H.C. Verma
  2. Concepts of Physics, Vol.-II, by H.C. Verma
  3. Problems in Physics by I.E. Irodov
  4. Fundamentals of Physics, by Halliday, Resnik and Walker.

I had ABC and Pradeep. These are the reference books. But I think one of them would be enough if you do that completely. NCERT books are one of the best books but generally don’t teach because of the manner in which they are written. If you can solve Exercises of NCERT then you are well prepared for any engineering exam.

Ques. Chemistry: Strategy and Books Followed for this section 


  1. NCERT Chemistry text books of class XI and class XII.
  2. Organic, Physical and Inorganic Chemistry books by O.P. Tandon.
  3. Pradeep or ABC whatever you want to refer. NCERT books are really nice if you read them like a novel. Exercises covers most of the topics. So NCERT and Reference would be enough for the exam.

Ques. Mathematics: Strategy and Books Followed    


  1. First you must be able to solve problems from NCERT class XI and class XII books.
  2. For best concepts you can purchase ‘IIT Mathematics’ by M.L. Khanna.
  3. For trigonometry and coordinate geometry the books by S.L. Loney are useful.
  4. Tata McGraw Hills (TMH) books.

Again NCERT books should be thoroughly practiced. More weightage should be given to Class XII portions

Ques. Share your thoughts on the Strategy for the aspirant who is starting 4 months before the exam.


  1. Solve at least 10-20 numerical problems daily starting from day one.
  2. Also find time to analyze the formulae and the theoretical concepts involved in it. Always think and discuss with likeminded mates, (a) what are the points at which you or they are making the mistakes, and (b) what are the factors which slow you down, that is, kill time.
  3. Set time limit for a set of questions and see to it that the time-score performance is improving.
  4. When you are solving questions pertaining to a particular topic, keep close watch on previous years’ question papers, say, of last 10-15 years. This is to be carried out only when your cut-out job for the day is done. The pattern changes are to be given special importance.
  5. Always achieve your daily target. You have to outdo more and more candidates on a daily basis.
  6. Till the time the exam ends, never ever, for any reason whatsoever, think that the fight has ended. This point is being emphasized since many candidates leave the battle halfway thinking their effort will not cut ice and they will be better prepared next time.
  7. Try to develop a stream-line thought process, which is of great help in solving numerical problems quickly. This kind of thinking can be developed by practicing gradual logical progression.
  8. Target the difficult parts of the syllabus first and prepare them along with concise, crisp, easy-to-look up notes.

Ques. What are the things you would like to go back in time and change to get into a better college?

Ans. I am happy what I got. But I want to say, do hard work. There is no other substitute for hard work. But hard work should be done smartly. Always maintain documentation because without it everything is worthless. Whenever you study, study like you will not be having that material tomorrow. So study with very high concentration.
