Hi, Im in class 11. My questions are: 1. Due to Covid-19 will the Aptitude test for KVPY be held after November this year? 2. How many students are selected after the Aptitude test and Interview round? 3. If I score a bit above the passing marks, will I be called for the interview?? Help plz.
The KVPY examination proceeds in two levels. The first level is the aptitude test and any student who meets the eligibility criteria can appear for this exam.
The second level is the interview round which selects candidates based on their performance in the previous round. The selection process to shortlist the candidates is not always predetermined and no fixed percentage as a selection criterion is given.
As of now, no fixed dates for the examination are given.
However, tentative dates suggest that the first level examination will be held in November, 2020 and the interview round might be conducted as late as January, 2021.
Hope this information helps
Best of luck!!
I am a 11th std student and Ill be giving Kvpy SA , Ive heard electrostatics is an important chapter for KVPY but However its in 12th std I wont be able to study it complete therefore please suggest me topics in electrostatics that I should study for KVPY SA stream
Electrostatics is a very important chapter. In it for kvpy you can study
1. Calculation of electric field and potential of different bodies.
2. They may ask you to find electric field and potential at a point due to an unsymmetrical body so do it.
3. Capacitance which includes dielectrics and different cases of finding capacitance.
4. Dipole is very important.
5. Gauss law and coulomb's law is very important.
I am a class 11 student , I am preparing for KVPY and Ive heard Ray optics is an important chapter for KVPY but its in class 12 , so it is not possible for me to cover whole chapter so please tell , which topics in ray optics should I study for KVPY ?
Ray optics is a fairly easy chapter, even with respect to class 12th Physics. But, some important topics include refraction, reflection and the natural phenomena. What I would suggest you to do is, look at past year KVPY questions from the chapter, and analyse for yourself. Because all the topics are related, you might have to go through everything once.
There are also some examination that students are normally encouraged in few schools like NTSE, KVPY etc. Do you actually follow encourage the students to take NTSE examination, KVPY examination & prepare them for that?
We do a lot & encourage the children participating in NTSE & other examination even if children are prepared, We do provide the children support also but not for everybody, We make it optional for students those who want to appear such examination. There is not structured programme for it but we do offer to support the children those who are preparing for the examination. At higher level we also extend for the support of SAT examination. We do have NDA academy & coaching support. But we want to bring up leaders coming up with lot of values that’what the future of the society that we encourage the students go for such kind of training.
