KVPY

This post focuses on KVPY.
Unfortunately I didn't give KVPY in class 11th because I wasn't aware of the deadlines.
But , as i heard from my friends - It's easy to crack and many of my friends did it!! As far as I know , the interview is a bit difficult (may be a rumor).
For class 12 KVPY aspirants , KVPY is like a cakewalk. You can crack the exam very easily if you have prepared well for JEE. Don't forget to cover the topics of JEE main Syllabus because KVPY doesn't have any "well defined" syllabus.
As far as I remember 11 of my friends appeared for KVPY and all cleared stage 1 and stage 2 both.
You will hear a lot from your friends - "Interview is very difficult , they ask tough questions and try to test your advanced skills" - wrong , wrong and WRONG !!
The interviewers are really good , humble and gentle . They assume you to be a student of class 12 and not at all "a scientist". They ask simple questions of board level. You need not look "extremely smart" or an "intelligent guy". They won't judge you by your looks. What they need is a research oriented brain.
Ofcourse most students (including me) appear for KVPY only for a certificate. 
In the end - Keep calm and study!

  1. Don't ask my rank in KVPY. It was bad because I made bubbling error. But it was between 100 and 150 :P

      Unfortunately due to some medical reasons, I couldn't attend the camps.
      I had to cancel the tickets at the last minute.
      For the same reason, I had to skip the Asian physics olympiad (Indonesia) too

  6. Could you please share the questions you & your friends were asked? I'm appearing for the interview in 11th grade. And is what 'stella' says true? Does getting 56 mean I have no chance of getting selected for the scholarship?

    1. nothing if you do B.Tech
      They don't award the scholarship to those students who opt for B.Tech.
      Only those students who go for pure sciences (B.Sc, etc) are awarded the scholarship

  18. Talking about SX stream...i have 2 questions:-
    1)how is the interview like?do they ask questions from all the 3 subjects PCM?or anyone of our choice?
    2)what minimum marks one should score to be in the top 100?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Interview is extremely easy if you have prepared for JEE well.
      To me, they asked questions from physics (because I had mentioned it as my favourite subject) and chemistry (may be their favourite subject). They didn't ask anything from mathematics section.

      I have no idea of marks but it should be around 65-70 range

  26. Aman,
    Are there anything specific to make sure that we have covered well or practiced enough before KVPY. Something we may have overlooked like some parts of NCERT or CBSE syllabus by concentrating purely on JEE Adv. etc...?

  40. Is it worth giving KVPY for a certificate?

    I am a student of 12th, and I don't think I will go for research. There maybe a very small probability of that, but let us neglect that. Would KVPY certificate help me even if I am not to do research? Do I need appear for interview if I am going just for the 'certificate'?

    Please reply soon. Deadline approaching. Thanks a lot.
