The KVPY exam tests the aptitude and analytical ability of the student. The prerequisites for a good score in KVPY exam is clarity of concepts. For KVPY, knowing how to solve a problem isn’t enough. It’s important to know why you solve the problem that way.
For KVPY SX/SB : Study any three subjects you’re strong in. In that two should be extremely strong. develop your own technique of solving
If you are JEE or NEET aspirant, follow JEE or NEET study material respectively. For Biology, NCERT is best.
Study all the concepts and topics thoroughly. You need to have strong concepts understanding to perform well in KVPY exam. KVPY relies less on memory and more on applying ideas and concepts to solve problems.
While practicing questions if you know that you are not much familiar with the concepts involved in the question, don’t attempt it, rather study the concept first and then solve the question.
Make summary sheets to revise important concepts and formulas weekly in all subjects. This is common for KVPY, JEE and NEET preparation.
Create a habit of problem solving. The more problems you solve, the more you will become familiar with strategies for picking the right formula in tests and exam.
Try to visualize the question. Write down the given information, draw a diagram of situation and write the thing you have to find. Do this with easier questions first and then difficult questions.
Make notes of each and every topic (important terms, formulas, reactions, mistakes while solving problems). Make a separate notebook for remembering formulas in each subject. Keep revising what you learn during the preparation.
KVPY exam have enough time to solve less number of questions. Maintain accuracy and avoid negative marking.
