How is VITEEE rank given?
VITEEE exam is a relatively graded exam. Ranks in VITEEE are given based on your relative performance w.r.t the scores of all the students who have taken the VITEEE Exam in the same slot as yours. Hence if a person scores 100 and the batch average is around 100 as well in VITEEE, while in another batch a person scores 100 where the average comes down to 85, then in this scenario the latter will have a much better rank in VITEEE.

How are the gradings done?
We follow an absolute grading system for some courses where your grades are based on already defined grading boundaries like you score an S grade if you score between 90-100 overall and in most of the courses it’s a relative grading system where the class average is calculated and then grades are given citing the class average as a reference.
Give some details about placements.
Placement starts from July. There are 3 categories of placements which is super dream(package above 10lpa), dream(package above 5lpa but less than 10lpa and regular(package below 5lpa). In slot 1 the best companies come in and provide packages above 25-30lpa and then all companies start to come in from August- September from all categories. If you have any wish to go for higher studies, you can only sit for regular placements, as if you get a dream or super dream offer, you can’t forego it, if you do, you don’t get an NOC from the college. The placements mostly have 3-4 rounds starting generally with aptitude test & technical mcq then comes the coding round(only for tech companies) then 1-3 rounds of interviews depending on the company, role and other stuffs.
