Yes you are eligible. There is no rule for improvement exam during applying for recruitment drive. They only ask your score and verify it. They will test your skill like coding, aptitute and reasoning. You belong to IT branch so coding is must. Practice as much as you can. You can get free mock test available in webpage.

You won't face any problem for improvement exam so don't worry about it. practice well. All the best.

Hope it helps!

Rehan Alam Student Expert 31st Mar, 2020

Dear Aspirant,

It is never too late to learn anything new. So if you want to learn any new technology then you can learn it and if you practice enough then you might master it as well.

To become a software engineer you need knowledge of following things:-


Data Structure

Dynamic programming

Object Oriented programming

Functional Programming

C/C++ language and some frontend/backend knowledge

Few projects in the field of software engineering.

Hope this helps, thank you.


Sathyabhama university Vs vit Vellore which is better for Information technology

Devraj choudhary Student Expert 30th Mar, 2020


I will suggest you for VIT vellore over sathyabhama university.  VIT Vellore is well established.  It has better NIRF ranking, better infrastructure,  better placement opportunities and good faculty.  It also has good alumi network and will help you in future.

So, I would suggest you for VIT vellore.  But if possible NITs or other Government colleges than you should prefer them over VIT and sathyabhama.

Hope it helps
