I cover mostly syllabus for kvpy sa stream what I do now but my mock test are not good


When you prepare for something it is not only necessary to cover the syllabus but practice is more important. You have to keep on practicing all the chapters that you have completed of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. As biology is a completely different subject that doesn't require you to practice any formulas ,you need to revise and learn it daily so as to jog your memory. Finally,even if your scores are not upto the mark in mock tests,keep on doing them as mock tests are the key to scoring good marks. Eventually,you'll learn by doing and can score your expected marks in KVPY Exam. All the best.


Im not able to solve difficult question Kvpy sa what I do in last month

Vedang Ranmale 9th Oct, 2021

Hello student,

KVPY is a tough examination which requires a research based mindset and all the basics and concepts cleared thoroughly. There may be times when you wont be able to solve some questions just like this, so, dont get depressed and keep trying and hunt for the solution. Due to these questions itself you brain will get trained to solve such challenging questions and you will get better at solving. Thus, keep practicing and never give up. You will then surely be able to crack the exam.

I hope this helps, All the Best!


how to improve PREPRATION in last 30 days for KVPY sa exam

aswathypadinjakkara 9th Oct, 2021


It is better not to study the very new topics in last minute. Revise the topics already covered thoroughly.If you have some short notes or something go through it. Do not overstress yourself and keep the calm. Solve some mock tests or previous year question papers and make yourself confident. Work on your time management.

hope this helps.

all the best.


kvpy exam preparation for class 12th

Priyanka Singh 7th Oct, 2021


I hope you are doing well!

KVPY SX stream syllabus includes concepts of Physics, Math, Chemistry and Biology till Class 12 . KVPY SX aspirants need to finish class 11 and 12 syllabus before November .

Since there is no unit and topic based prescribed syllabus, KVPY SX stream aspirants can study from NCERT books and IIT JEE (NEET for Biology) coaching material.

KVPY SX/ SB exam has two parts. In Part-I, there will be 80 questions (20 each of PCMB), a student has to attempt only 3 subjects questions i.e. 60 questions. In Part-II, there will be 40 questions (10 each of PCMB), a student has to attempt only 2 subjects questions i.e. 20 questions.

Choose any three subjects you’re strong in. In that two should be extremely strong. Chemistry and Biology are scoring subjects.

Study tips for KVPY Exam

  • Just like JEE Advanced, you need to have strong concepts understanding to perform well in KVPY SX exam. You need to practice the questions well.
  • Study all the concepts and topics thoroughly. Make notes of each and every topic. Practice conceptual questions from Physics. Make sure you remember class 11 concepts clearly.
  • For KVPY SX preparation, you can refer to IIT JEE and NEET preparation books. You can also study from JEE/NEET study material  of a coaching. NCERTs + Coaching material = good choice for KVPY preparation. [For Biology, NCERT is best].
  • The KVPY exam has enough time to solve fever questions. Maintain accuracy and avoid negative marking.
  • Make notes of important terms, formulas, reactions, mistakes while solving problems, etc. Include your own shortcuts and tricks. Keep revising what you learn during the preparation

One of the concerns for KVPY SX aspirants is how they are going to manage KVPY preparation with board exams. Don’t worry. For KVPY SX preparation, you need to complete class 12 syllabus. So for school board exams, it’s just a matter of revision. Before your board exams, you can solve some sample papers to practice descriptive questions.
