Careers360: Mock tests and sample papers – how extensively did you practice with the help of these? Do you think to practice from the KVPY question papers help and how?

Careers360: What was your exam day strategy? How did you prepare for it on a daily basis?
Kartikey Gupta: I started writing without reading the question paper and without getting stressed. I decided to attempt section 1 first then section 2. I attempted PCM in section 1 and CM in the second section. I attempted Chemistry first as it takes less time then I attempted PM.

Kartikey Gupta: Around 7-8 teachers were there in the panel. They asked the questions related to the answers which I had written in a self -appraisal form. More conceptual questions were asked. The questions of Organic Chemistry were a bit tough. In Mathematics question from the topics which were neither part of JEE syllabus nor part of NCERT but were in Olympiad( like Number theory, the principle of Mathematical Induction, the Modulation index) were asked.
Careers360: Share some KVPY exam preparation tips for future aspirants?
Kartikey Gupta: For KVPY conceptual clarity is required. The candidates preparing for JEE and Medical exam can easily qualify KVPY exam. I would suggest future aspirants prepare for the topics mentioned above along with NCERT syllabus.

Questions related to KVPY
what is the advantages of kvpy exam?
The Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana (KVPY) is a scholarship funded by the Department of Science and Technology of the Government of India. This programme was started in 1999 and since then has been administered by the Indian Institute of Science (IISC). The aim of this programme is to motivate exceptionally talented students to pursue a career in science, engineering and research domain. A special committee is set up by IISC to screen the applications. The screened applicants are then called for an aptitude test and interview. Candidates with a well-combined score are considered eligible for the scholarship.
Clearing the KVPY examination is not an easy feat and requires a rigorous amount of hard work and proper training. Plancess has been providing guidance to aspirants for KVPY scholarship for a long time. Qualifying for this scholarship is an achievement in itself. There are several other benefits which are discussed below.
The scholarship money provided to students under this scheme is really good. For the first three years, a basic scholarship of Rs. 5000 per month is provided to students from both science and medicine faculty. For every subsequent year, the sum is increased to Rs. 7000 per month. Besides, there is an annual contingency grant of Rs. 20,000 for the first three years and of Rs. 28,000 for every subsequent year too. The monetary aid provided by KVPY is really helpful for students from the lower middle-class section of the society.
ADDS WEIGHT TO YOUR CV
All the hard work put in securing a KVPY scholarship starts bearing the fruit during the professional life of a candidate. A KVPY scholarship gives any candidate a competitive edge over his competitors. It increases his chances of getting an admission or job in a foreign location.
The KVPY platform is a great place to network and make new friends with similar aspirations and dreams. Many online education delivery platforms like Plancess provides quality video lectures and study material for medical and engineering students, who aspire to secure a KVPY scholarship. Candidates can exchange ideas and build long lasting bonds that can inspire them to achieve their goals in the long run.
EASIER TO GET AN ADMISSION IN IISC
Since the KVPY programme is conducted under the administration of IISC, clearing it, places a student in the favourable books of the IISC faculty. IISC is generally known for its high cut off marks. However, if you are a KVPY scholarship holder, chances are high that you can get an easy admission in the undergraduate courses of IISc.
RESEARCH PROJECT EXPERIENCE
Every student who qualifies for KVPY is required to do a research project every year under the guidance of a scientist or scholar. Being a part of such projects enhances his knowledge and motivates him to think independently, which is essential for a successful and flourishing career in science and engineering.
Last but not the least, the Vijyoshi Camp is held particularly for KVPY students where they can meet great scholars, researchers and scientists from their respective field and interact with them. It is indeed a great opportunity which is only reserved for KVPY scholarship holders.
Considering the benefits of a KVPY scholarship programme students generally start preparing for this exam right after class X board exams. Multiple attempts can be made for securing the KVPY scholarship and given the prestige it carries, all the efforts are worth the pain.
