VIT University announced VITEEE 2008 – its entrance exam’s – results today. If you haven’t your result already, then click here to know your VITEEE 2008 result.

My results can be summed up in the following way:

There is an art, it says, or rather, a knack to flying.
The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.
Pick a nice day, it suggests, and try it.
The first part is easy.
All it requires is simply the ability to throw yourself forward with all your weight, and willingness not to mind that it’s going to hurt.
That is, it’s going to hurt if you fail to miss the ground.
Most people fail to miss the ground, and if they are really trying properly, the likelihood is that they will fail to miss it fairly hard.

I failed to miss the ground too, and I failed to miss the ground very hard. I wouldn’t have really bothered to join VIT if it wasn’t for computer science engineering, or information technology; so let’s just say I’m not getting that and I want to end the discussion here. Maybe I’d get any of the others, like mechanical, civil, or chemical – but since none of them are fields I’m interested in, the result doesn’t really matter to me. No, I’m not (manically) depressed about this.

Right now, I’m pretty much in ‘NTU or bust’ mode. THAT’s an exam about which I can say I gave a good shot. THAT would be the one I’d be disappointed about if I didn’t get into, because quite frankly, it’s the only exam I really worked for.

I’ve also heard the results of a few friends of mine, and it seems that the overall performance of students in VITEEE went up this year. A few folks I know knocked up quite a respectable score, and yet, would be in the same state as me – if only slightly better. Sure, admissions in VIT apparently go up to rank 10,000-12,000, buy you really WON’T be getting computer science or electrical engineering, the most in-demand courses. But I’m also guessing, from the score vs rank relations I’ve gathered so far, that the cutoff this year for VITEEE has probably gone up; and admissions will close at higher ranks.

Best of luck to all students who DID get a good rank in VITEEE. For others, people STILL have time to pull their ‘jammy’s up and give BITS a good shot.

PS – Wanna know who the top 10 rankers in VITEEE 2008 are? Click here to have a look at the geniuses. No sarcasm. Honestly. These guys did a great job in an exam where top score goes pretty high. Take a good look. Maybe some of these will show up in JEE result lists too. ;)

PPS – I can’t individually tell each and every one what stream they would be getting, and mind you that mine is still a guess. However, for whatever it’s worth, here’s my take on what your VITEEE rank can get you:

Also, bear in mind that VIT calls for counselling in TWO batches – one up to rank 6000, and the other from 6000 to up to 11000. So you DO have a chance in the second phase of counselling. Note that this is only my interpretation of what I’ve gathered from score-rank relations of what students have put up on mine and other sites, people who study at VIT, and a heady dose of conjecture. I hope this provides the answer for most of the queries people have been posting. More than that, I can’t reply to each one individually. :)
