How to prepare for KVPY – Tricks and Tips

The syllabus and pattern of exams such as JEE Main, Olympiads and several other competitive exams accommodate the important topics for KVPY. Candidates who are already preparing for the aforementioned exams will hence find it easier to study for KVPY 2018. Here are a few tips that will act as a panacea to the several complexities that students face while preparing for KVPY:

1. Effective study plan and time management

Students preparing for KVPY are advised to prepare a time table or study plan which is feasible and at the same time, utilises the time effectively. There needs to be equal emphasis to all the subjects included in KVPY syllabus, and an equal segregation of the time to cover all concepts. The most important task after that is following the time table, which requires a lot of discipline. Students should keep an hour daily for self-analysis and correction, which plays a very important role in improving on one’s weak areas. Keeping a separate time slot for the subjects in which the candidate is weak proves to be helpful too. The key to ace any competitive exam is time management. It is thus advisable to attempt the known portions of the question paper first on the day of exam.

2. Efficient utilisation of resources at hand

To master any subject, or in that case, any topic, it is important that one has their concepts clear. Strengthening the concept necessitates the proper choice of study material and the right option here would be to choose a book which is easy to understand. Another way to clear one’s concepts are to consult teachers and expert faculty. Besides, students can also go for group study, which is very effective in clarifying doubts. Make short, self-written notes are also very much beneficial for retaining what has been learnt fir a longer period.

3. Self-evaluation and reinforcement of weak areas

There is no bigger mistake a student can make than to neglect the areas they are weak in. As such, analysis of one’s own performance through self-evaluation becomes a significant part in one’s preparation for KVPY 2018. Once students start working harder, they will see themselves solving the problems they were once afraid of.

4. Staying connected with experts

Institutes like FIITJEE provide doubt clearing sessions and result analysis for their students from time to time. This is usually done once or twice a month at their study centres. This practice of face to face interaction with the faculty helps candidates in resolving their queries instantly, without any delay.

5. Judging your performance with periodic tests

This can be done with regular practice of KVPY sample papers that are available online. One can also practise previous years’ question papers of KVPY to get a fair idea of relevant topics that have been covered through the years. Besides, one can also take as many KVPY mock tests that will make them more efficient and finally, perform better.
