VITEEE 2019 Preparation tips by toppers
To guide the future aspirants on the road of VITEEE preparation, tips from the toppers are penned down. VITEEE toppers share their preparation strategies and messages for the future aspirants.
VITEEE 2018 Topper Kalash Gupta (AIR 1)- “After finishing the syllabus in October, I intensively started taking mock tests and sample papers. Initially the frequency was once a week. After the board exams, I increased it to 1-2 tests a day. Solving papers is very important as it helps in time management, builds exam temperament and lets you know your level of preparation. I will say that consistency in studies and remaining focussed is the key for cracking any entrance exam. Specifically for VITEEE, thorough knowledge of facts and time management are essential.”
VITEEE 2018 Topper Shubham Agarwal (AIR 6)- “I kept my focus by in depth study of the prescribed NCERT books and solving questions in them as there are always chances of some trick questions being asked directly from NCERT. Previous year papers give an insight of the type of questions one will be asked in the actual exam and hence, prepares one mentally. I would just like to say that one must be focussed and work hard to achieve one’s dreams in life. There is no shortcut to success.”
VITEEE 2018 Topper Sai Anirudh M (AIR 4)- “I wrote mock tests at least once a week. I think, they are very important as they keep a regular check on your status and what you don’t know well. Specifically for VIT, I would like to say that it’s an easy exam where it is important to be quick and not commit silly mistakes. As a general message, I think people should not take studies so seriously that there is no other space to breathe in. It’s okay to do what you like, in proportion to how important it is to you.”
