KVPY Exam Preparation

  

Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana (KVPY) is a national-level scholarship/fellowship program conducted to promote and encourage highly driven students to opt for research careers in basic science courses. It is initiated and funded by the Department of Science and Technology of the Government of India. Students who qualify KVPY, known as the KVPY fellows, receive monthly scholarship up to pre Ph. D. level. 

The KVPY exam is administered by the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore (IISc). Candidates who qualify the aptitude round are called for a face to face interview. About 3000 out of one lakh aspirants are awarded KVPY fellowship. 


Fellowship Program 

A KVPY fellow is entitled to receive the monthly stipend pre Ph.D. level or 5 years, whichever is earlier, given that he maintains the minimum grade every year.

From the second year of B.Sc./B.S./B.Math./B.Stat /Integrated M.Sc./Integrated M.S. program, KVPY fellows must participate and perform satisfactorily in summer program in an academic Institution of National or International repute or a DSIR approved research labs. This is mandatory for the continuation of fellowship.

KVPY fellows are issued an identity card which grants them access to national universities and laboratories who have agreed to extend special privileges like lab facilities, libraries, etc.


SA/SX/SB - 1st to 3rd years of B.Sc./B.S./B.Stat./B.Math./Integrated M.Sc./M.S.

Monthly Fellowship Amount  - Rs 5000

Annual Contingency Grant  - Rs 20000


SA/SX/SB - during M. Sc./4th to 5th years of Integrated M.Sc./M.S./M.Math./M.Stat.

Monthly Fellowship Amount  - Rs 7000

Annual Contingency Grant - Rs 28000


Eligibility Criteria

There are 3 streams for which KVPY is conducted - SA, SX and SB. 


SA - Candidates must be studying science stream in class 11. A candidate must secure a minimum of 75% in math and science subjects in class 10th board exams. For SC, ST and PWD, the minimum required marks is 65%.


SX - Candidates must be studying science stream in class 12. A candidate must secure a minimum of 75% in math and science subjects in class 10th board exams. For SC, ST and PWD, the minimum required marks is 65%. To avail the scholarship, the candidate must secure a minimum of 60% in math and science subjects in class 12th board exams to take up the fellowship. For SC, ST and PWD, the minimum required marks is 50%.


SB - Candidates must be studying in their 1st year of Bachelor degree in any of the Basic Science courses. A candidate must secure a minimum of 60% in math and science subjects in class 12th board exams. For SC, ST and PWD, the minimum required marks is 50%. To avail the scholarship, the candidate must secure a minimum of 60% in the first year of his undergraduate course to take up the fellowship. For SC, ST and PWD, the minimum required marks is 50%.

The subjects included under Basic Sciences include B.Sc./B.S./B.Stat./B.Math./Int. M.Sc./Int. M.S. in Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Statistics, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Cell Biology, Ecology, Molecular Biology, Botany, Zoology, Physiology, Biotechnology, Neurosciences, Bioinformatics, Marine Biology, Geology, Human Biology, Genetics, Biomedical Sciences, Applied Physics, Geophysics, Materials Science and Environmental Science. 

Note: Students enrolled under distance education or correspondence course for their undergraduate program are not eligible to apply for KVPY. 


Exam Pattern

KVPY is conducted in two rounds - Aptitude Test and Personal Interview. While the aptitude round checks a candidate's knowledge across various subjects, the interview process will test knowledge of science and research related topics.


Exam Mode: KVPY is essentially a computer based test (CBT). So, you can only take it in the online mode.

Question Type: Questions are of multiple choice type (MCQs). Each question has an equal weightage of marks. For SA Stream, it is compulsory to attempt all questions. However, for candidates of SB/SX stream, there is an option to attempt any three sections in PART I & any two sections in PART II.

Exam Duration: Candidates are given 3 hours to complete the paper.

Language for Question Paper: A candidate has the option to take the paper in English or in Hindi.

Marking Scheme: The question paper is divided in two parts. In part 1 of the test, candidates are awarded +1 and -¼ for correct and incorrect answers respectively. For part 2, candidates are awarded +2 and -½ for correct and incorrect answers respectively.


For SA

Physics - Questions part 1 - 15, Questions Part 2 - 5. Total Marks - 25

Chemistry - Questions part 1 - 15, Questions Part 2 - 5. Total Marks - 25

Mathematics -  Questions part 1 - 15, Questions Part 2 - 5. Total Marks - 25

Biology -  Questions part 1 - 15, Questions Part 2 - 5. Total Marks - 25

Total - Questions part 1 - 60, Questions Part 2 - 20. Total Marks - 100
