i had lost my kvpy password and the entered email too then what should i do

Rehan Alam Student Expert 18th Oct, 2019

Dear Aspirant,

This is highly unlikely that you forgot your email id and password. Your email id is like your digital contact and you must if not able to remember it, then write it somewhere.

Moreover, do not make email id that is not easily memorable. Start with your name and DOB combination or your school name combination with your name. Do not make email with irrelevant numbers in it.

Remember these points in future to make email Id. Now onto how to find your account, you could use the history of your browser, there maybe you'll find some details.

Hope this helps. Thank you.

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!
Greetings!
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.
thankyou
