Ive applied for VITEEE2020 VIT university has cancelled the VITEEE2020 VIT is asking the state board score and JEE MAINS score.Now more 2 lakhs students applied for VITEEE2020 to get seat in VIT,vellore/chennai campuses what must be the stateboard score & jeemains score ?..
Since this is the first time that VITEEE 2020 cancelled due to the corona pandemic we cannot predict the cut off. Admission is based on merit in state board exams in Mathematics/Biology, Physics and Chemistry. Also if a candidate qualified in JEE Main will be given weightage. Cut off will be declared after the counselling and it depends on number of candidates applied, number of seats available, marks scored in boards etc.
do pyq of jee main and advance appear in bitsat?
Yes, the previous year questions of JEE Main are many a times asked in BITSAT. As JEE Main and BITSAT have the similar level of difficulty, if you prepare for JEE Main than your BITSAT preparation is also going on because to clear both the exams you are required to have good speed and accuracy.
But, it's not in the case of JEE Advanced, it has a higher level than JEE Main and BITSAT both. JEE Advanced questions are more conceptual and diffilcult.
