if my subject is PCM then I apply for kvpy exam. and what is SA, SX

Shudhanshu Gupta Student Expert 20th Feb, 2020
Kishore vaigyanik protsahan yojana exam (KVPY), is formerly  scholarship exam along with it is also an entrance exam. If you are in class 11th then you will give KVPY SA set of exam and if you are in class 12 then it would be SX stream , yes you can also give if you  are a PCM student, but in general for PCM student exam becomes much difficult because there will be question asked on physics ,chemistry, Mathematics and biology too, for the reason it is much advantages for pcmb students.
Best of luck.

can give kvpy in class 12 ? there is any role of class xi perentage?

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 16th Feb, 2020


see you can appear in kvpy exam in 12th class, when you are in final year  of 10+2 course. there is no need to mention your 11 th percentage, but question will come from 11th and 12th syllabus both. so you need to study strictly for both of the exam.

follow the previous years question, and if you are preparing for jee main exam or neet exam, it is an added advantage for you.

all the best for your future.
