Sir if i want to take admission in IIIT HYDERABAD then should I have to give some separate entrance exam or I can take admission from my KVPY marks basis.

Aditya kumar Student Expert 16th Oct, 2019
Hello there!
You can take admission on the basis of marks obtained in kvpy in iiit hyderabad , you don't need to give any other exam but actually iit Hyderabad has different channels of B.Tech admission , which are - UGEE-CLD, ECD, CND and CLD programmes/NK/NTSE or KVPY, Olympiad, SPEC, DASA UG andjee main mode. So , you can give these exams as well in order to increase your chances of admission into iiit hyderabad. Even if you fail to perform well in kvpy but perform well in any of the other mentioned exams then you can have admission in iiit hyderabad,  it's not good to rely on just kvpy , when you have other channels as well. So , you should go for other exams as well but it's not mandatory.

Is rotational motion is needed in KVPY examination?

Ronak Gala Student Expert 12th Oct, 2019

Yes ofcourse, why not? Kinemetics is the major part from wherein questions are asked in KVPY exams. If you talk about the weightage, then it would be around 1-3 questions from ROTATIONAL motion. Don't fear this chapter, it's a very easy one and things will become easy once you sit and work hard for it. I was stuck in the same situation a year ago and then later on I also found it much easy but it was time up way too late. So better go for it right now.

Best of wishes to you. Thank you.
