Eligibility criteria

To be eligible to appear for the test, candidates should have graduated with a full-time degree from a recognised university with at least 60 percent marks for MCA and 50 percent for M.Tech. courses. Candidates appearing for the final degree exam this year are also eligible. However, final semester or year exams should be completed before the selection interview. A consistent record in class 10 and 12 is also essential.

For individual M.Tech. programmes, certain academic criteria apply for eligibility. Degree courses generally require a Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.), Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) or equivalent in a particular area. For the MCA, you must have a bachelor's degree in any branch with one of the following subjects: computer technology, IT, mathematics, computer science, statistics or business mathematics.

Selected candidates must provide the statement of final year marks and the provisional degree certificate before 15 August, 2013.

Exam pattern

The test is computer-based and has 110 questions with a maximum of 100 marks total. Negative marks are not given for incorrect responses. A number of different question papers are available, what you appear for is dependent on your prospective programme.

Candidates have the option of attending a mock test (online) through the VIT website.
