Why is time management necessary?
A large portion of one's performance in any exam depends upon his preparation before the exam and time allotment while writing the exam. Likewise, The time management skills of any candidate are crucial while attempting the VITEEE exam. That's why you must focus on the time allotment for each section of the question paper and see to it that each section is completed in due time so that there are no chances of missing any portion. Moreover, if you maintain a stable speed and follow optimal time limits, you will be on the safer side due to the low frequency of mistakes occurring.
What are the tips to crack VITEEE 2020?
Some exam related tips can be adopted, which can come to great help. They're as mentioned below -
- Arguably, the most important step you must take before beginning with the exam is to read the question paper thoroughly and make an estimate of the level of difficulty in each section.
- After doing this, you must allot certain specific time frames to each section and begin with the questions you feel the most confident about. The time allotment to each section should be done on the basis of your own convenience rather than following a particular format or general time frame.
- Always and always ensure that you do not exceed the time limit. If this happens, you might end up wasting a lot of unnecessary time after a particular set of questions, which will cause you to lose marks in the questions you know.
- Accuracy in the answers is paramount. You must write the answers straight to the point without any misleading statements. Also, clarity of handwriting and neatness in the answer sheet is very important because if you don't maintain these, there are high chances that your marks will get reduced as the examiner might not be able to read what you have exactly written.
Other general tips can help in creating a better strategy for the question paper and improving performance in the exam such as -
- Practice as much as you can! There is no substitute to practice when it comes to exams. This is especially applicable to those who have opted for mathematics as sums can never be mugged up. You must solve a variety of sums of each kind instead of a large number of sums of the same pattern. This way, you can cover a much larger portion of your syllabus within a lesser amount of time.
- Make use of the previous year's question papers and write mock tests to enhance the overall paper writing skills. Thoroughly analyze the question paper in terms of difficulty, sections, important topics, weightage of each question, and others.
- Always make sure that you write the mock test in the same time frame as in which the actual exam is to be conducted. This way, your body can adjust to the biological clock in a natural way, and you would have an added benefit in the exam.
- While preparing for the exam, your prime focus should be on the areas where you are not comfortable. When it comes to those sections, you must try to improve gradually and ensure that you do not get stuck in the same as it would lead nowhere and even cause harm to the preparation of the stronger sections.
Which colleges can you apply to after VITEEE?
Contrary to general belief, the number of VITEEE colleges is not limited to just one institute. Various colleges accept the VITEEE exam, and they are as stated below -
- Vellore Institute of Technology, Chennai for B.Tech in computer science and engineering
- VIT University, Chennai for B.Tech in computer science and engineering

The COVID-19 outbreak has brought the world to a halt. The massive outbreak of Coronavirus across the globe has resulted in a ripple effect of the pandemic at multiple levels. The outbreak has affected the world badly and has resulted in an economic slowdown, obstructed the international travel and trade, secluded the public and so on.
In case of Education, according to a report by the United Nations Educational, Science and Cultural organisation, approximately 290.5 million students have been affected worldwide, owing to the closure of schools, cancellation of classes, delay in exams etc. To support India’s proactive measures of containing the spread of COVID-19, all schools and colleges have been closed and the private institutions have moved their classes online. However, a serious concern lies ahead of learners preparing for competitive examinations. They are unable to access learning resources during the very last days of their preparation. Having all the major entrance and university exams between now and the next two months, they have no other option but to carry out exam preparation from home with the available resources. The list of examinations that have been postponed due to this pandemic is as follows:
- VITEEE 2020
- SSC CHSL
- SSC CGL TIER 1
- MHT CET 2020
- JEE MAIN 2020
- LIC AAO
For the students preparing for the entrance exam, to add a cherry to the cake is not knowing the date of their entrance exam. Between this chaos, it has become difficult for the students to focus on their preparation. Thus, to bring an end to this situation, Eduwhere hereby presents some important tips to focus on the preparation of the upcoming entrance examination.
First and foremost thing that every student needs to do is freshen up. Change of mind is required to engage entire attention towards the exam preparation. Thus, it is better to dedicate one day to doing something that will help you throw away the negative thoughts and bring in the positivity. Activities such as gardening, watching comedy movies etc and staying away from the NEWS will surely help in flushing away the negative thoughts and bringing in the positive energy.
Follow a Routine
Set a Routine. Staying home is a task in itself. This time staying home is a mandate and not an option. So set a routine. This time of the year would have been the time of revision and mock tests. But with the classes shut, it is you who has to evaluate and analyze your own score. Thus, set a routine in which you allot time for revision as well as for mock tests. In order to help students in these difficult times, Eduwhere is providing Eduwhere Edge Pass for Rs 1 for 1 month to help students for online exam preparation. Helping candidates prepare from home has become our utmost priority in these difficult times. Through this pass, candidates will get complete access to all the available online mocks at Eduwhere.
Try to avoid distractions. With everyone at home, distractions cannot be stopped but they can be avoided by making the family members aware of your routine and asking them to support you in your routine.
Having family members by your side can also prove to be a blessing in disguise. You can always take help of your parents or siblings on difficult topics. You can take their help in revision as well.
Enroll for online coaching
If your coaching institute has set up online lectures or classes, do enrol for these classes. This will help you revise the topics and brush up your knowledge.
Stay connected with your coaching institutes’ online doubt clearing platform. Exam preparation from home may result in the creation of doubts. Thus, through these platforms, you can get your doubts solved and move further in your preparation.
Share your mock tests results with your coaching instructor or tutor regularly. Their analysis of your mock test results will help you know your weak areas and how to work upon them.
It is this digital age which has made it possible for students to stay home and prepare for their upcoming entrance examinations. With COVID-19 around and exams on the head, these tech-enabled platforms will help students learn and evaluate themselves by staying in the safety and security of their homes. This will also yield better outcomes as a lot of time will be saved and invested in working on the weak-scoring areas. For further preparations, do enrol for the Eduwhere Edge Pass which is available at Rs 1 for 1 month and start giving mock tests online.
STAY HOME STAY SAFE AND PREPARE WELL!

Humanity is going through a tough time fighting a horrid war against coronavirus today. The lockdown period has pushed the world towards a complete standstill, with doctors and medical staff worldwide fighting relentlessly to stop the virus from spreading. So needless to say, you should also do your part too by staying at home and preparing for your exams which have been postponed.
Looking at the flip side, it can be said that students who are appearing for their board examination have benefitted to some extent, from this international emergency due to coronavirus. Now is the time to strengthen their exam preparation with mock tests online.
You might wonder that after so many months of preparation, what more can mock tests do to boost your exam preparation at home during this lockdown.
Well, even during this phase when you are gearing up for the remaining tests, mock exams online on Eduwhere can bring you a world of benefits, because -
You can test strategies and understand the most effective one
Yes, you are preparing all the formulae, the theories, the concepts and what not? But lapping up the correct strategy is very important, especially with exams postponed. Now in this emergency, due to the Covid-19, a deadly and very contagious virus, you need to understand how much ready you are for the examinations. Mock tests will help you to strategize how to carry out the preparation to score pretty well.
You can learn new ways to solve numerical questions
Mock-tests are usually a little bit tougher than the original exam-papers hence when you are solving difficult problems, you are taxing your brain to find out new solutions. This, in turn, helps you to solve easier problems in no time. Basically, you get seasoned properly. Sometimes you need to think of new ways to solve a problem based on the concept itself.
Learn better time-management
Taking mock tests will be your perfect partner as far as online test preparation is concerned. You will start solving papers under time constraints which will give you a fair share of an idea of how you have to manage your time while solving question papers during the actual examination. You will be able to understand how much time you have to dedicate to each section to complete the paper in time. If you want to perform well, you must also understand the pattern of the question paper and you should be thorough with it and mock-test papers help you with that as well. All this is required to make sure that you are always spot on!
Practice makes a man perfect
Practice is all you need while preparing. This is a good time to practice, you have been given a chance with exams postponed, so do not let it go in vain. Learn the basics, the concepts, formulae and everything else only to apply the concepts while solving mock-test papers. While solving the papers you might face difficulty, you might get stuck but this will help you to understand how much you are prepared and where you are lagging. The more the mock test papers you solve, the more used to you become with the different types of problems. The practice also increases your tenacity to continue studies for long hours at a stretch.
Analyze your performance better by taking mock tests
Every student must solve the question papers and understand the mistakes they have made. This understanding will help them to know how much they are likely to score in the examination. Check your paper, make the correction wherever necessary and remember the solutions.
If you are one of the students who want to score well in your board examination then this is the right time for you to start exam preparation at home with the mock-test papers provided online by Eduwhere.
Eduwhere is one of those rare online platforms that have made things easier for students with their wonderful initiative of offering the Eduwhere Edge Pass for INR 1. With this pass, you can reap benefits for 1 month just by paying this nominal fee. You can become a member and get access to all the online mock test papers available on their site. This philanthropic gesture ensures a better future for every student who wants to put in his or her best and leverage the tremendous benefits of affordable online test preparation.
Mock tests are perhaps the best way to make the most of your time during the lockdown period because you have got another chance; not everyone is lucky enough to get a second shot. So stay at home, stay safe, and study well while you still have time because once the Covid-19 emergency ends, it will be time for you to prove your mettle.
Remember, rough times never last but tough people always do!

How can you prepare?
The exam will be held in April, so there is less than one month left. Spend more time on the subjects that you find more difficult to deal with.
Instead of trying to mug up basic concepts, it is always recommended that you focus on understanding the concept and do some self-assessment. That way it becomes easier to remember the fundamentals, leaving out any chance of forgetting.
Try to take as many VITEEE mock tests as you can. Solving sample papers will help you gain more confidence and also formulate strategies that can help you during the exam.

VITEEE is not very tricky and the questions come directly from the books. With the right exam schedules and techniques, you will be able to score good marks in the entrance.
Some tips to follow during the exam
If you find it difficult to solve any question then do not waste your time trying. Instead, move to the next question and come back to it later if you have time.
Keep in mind that you will need to clear sectional cut-off as well as an overall cut-off.
In case you find any section to be challenging, then try to solve the minimum number of questions that will help you to clear the cut-off.
Make sure that you read all the questions carefully before solving, sometimes they can be really tricky.
If you are not sure about a short-cut method, then do try to use that in the exam.
With the right preparation and systematic way of studying, you will be able to crack the VITEEE exam with flying colours. Don’t forget to take mock tests online that cover the entire VITEEE syllabus thoroughly, like those available on Eduwhere.
Just be confident and give your finest shot. Best of luck!
