Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT)is scheduled to organise the VIT Engineering Entrance Examination (VITEEE) 2021 on May 28, 29 and 31, 2021. The exam shall be conducted through the online, remote-proctored format. Interested candidates can register for the entrance exam on or before May 20, 2021, on the official website viteee.vit.ac.in. The slot booking process for the registered candidates shall be conducted from Monday, May 17, 2021. Candidates are required to book the slots for the two mock tests as well as the actual exam. The two mock tests shall be held from May 20 to 26, 2021 in different slots, as per the candidate’s preference.
VIT shall be conducting the mock tests to help candidates get accustomed to the online, remote-proctored examination (ORPE). The first mock test shall be conducted on May 20, 21 and 22, 2021. The second mock test shall be conducted on May 24, 25 and 26, 2021. On each day, four slots shall be organised in different time slots – 8:30 am, 11:00 am, 1:30 pm and 4:00 pm. Link to the mock tests shall be made available on the official website viteee.vit.ac.in and vit.ac.in. each candidate shall be informed about the link via email or SMS.
There is an important correlation between the mock tests and the actual VITEEE 2021 exam. The time slot chosen by the candidate shall be applied for both mock tests and the actual exam. Thus, if he/she chooses 1A, the candidate has to appear for the first day, the first slot for Mock 1, Mock 2 and VITEEE 2021 exam. Hence, aspirants are advised to choose the slot keeping in mind the entrance exam. Any further request in change of slots shall be entertained by authorities.
Another important correlation between mock tests and actual exam lies in the purpose of those mock tests. Candidates have to compulsorily attend both mock exams to check their device compatibility and internet speed. The first mock test shall be auto-proctored while the second mock exam shall be proctored by the VIT faculty members. During the second exam, monitoring shall be done via both primary and secondary devices. All these measures shall be undertaken to avoid any confusion or chaos during the actual exam.
In case of any issues faced by candidates during the first mock exam, they can convey them via email support to the university authorities. However, during the second mock exam, candidates can communicate with the proctor via audio call or chat to resolve the issues. A detailed list of prohibited activities and further instructions shall be provided during the mock tests.
