### Mathematics Syllabus for VIT EEE 2015 Examinations:

The Vellore Institute of Technology, Engineering Entrance Examinations are conducted and convened once in a year. These Engineering Entrance Examinations are conducted in the month of April every year. Even the Upcoming Engineering Entrance Examinations will probably be conducted in the month of April 2015.

The Vellore Institute of Technology, Engineering Entrance Examinations comprises of 2 subjects: namely Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Biology. The paper pattern and the syllabus for all the subjects have already been mentioned in our Educational website www.careersamosa.com
