is kvpy exam cancelled ???
Yes kvpy exam is cancelled and it will be no longer conducted 2022 onwards.
Department of science and technology (DST) has decided to cancel the kvpy exam and to discontinue it.
instead kvpy fellowship programme would now be combined with the INSPIRE fellowship.
DST has decided to subsume kvpy with INSPIRE.
how to get seat in iisc after through competitive exams like KVPY, as now it is cancelled?
I believe there are two methods to be admitted to IISc (indian institute of science).
-You must take the kvpy test, which is offered by IISc Bangalore every year. After passing the written and interview requirements, you must submit an application for admission.
-You must pass the JEE-ADVANCED test before applying for admission. If your application is selected for further consideration, you will then be required to attend an interview and if you are chosen, you get admitted to IISc after completing grade 12.
