10 tips to crack KVPY Aptitude Test

1. Analyse your Strengths and Weaknesses

Before getting into preparation mode for KVPY Aptitude Test, it is important for you to know your existing level of preparedness for the KVPY exam. For this you need to check the previous year KVPY papers and analyse where you stand. Thereafter, you need to analyse your strengths and weaknesses based on your existing preparedness and required preparation for KVPY. You should, then, decide how much weightage is to be given to various sections under the time-frame that you have for your KVPY preparation. You need to utilize your strengths and plan to improve on your weaknesses during your preparation.

2. Integrate your KVPY preparation with regular studies

Since the questions asked in KVPY is generally based on the syllabus of your regular class X/XI/XII studies, you need to bring clarity as to how you are going to utilize your academic syllabus and integrate your studies with KVPY preparations.

There is no prescribed syllabus for KVPY written exam. The students’ understanding and analytical ability of factual knowledge is tested in the written exam. However, students are tested for the syllabus up to class X/XII/1st year of B.Sc./B.S./B.Stat./B.Math./Int./Int. M.Sc./M.S. So, you need to revisit the syllabus of your regular studies to make sure that you have covered all the sections to be asked in KVPY test.

Further, the major parts of syllabus of other competitive exams like JEE Main and JEE Advanced match with that of KVPY exam. This also brings you an opportunity to analyse and base your preparation plan accordingly. You can benefit by preparing for a particular topic for other competitive exam and eventually find the same helping you in KVPY exam. Also, difficulty level of questions asked in KVPY remain similar to that of other competitive exams like JEE Main, JEE Advanced and other Engineering exams.



3. Refer to NCERT text books

KVPY aptitude test is basically a test of your fundamentals. Therefore, those who have studied NCERT study material thoroughly, cracking KVPY becomes easier. What will be more efficient way to get fundamentals clear than a thorough study of NCERT study material?



4. Make a four-month strategy: you have enough time

Generally, KVPY is announced in the month of July. This is the time when generally your academic year ends and you have bandwidth to work on the competitive exams like KVPY. The KVPY is generally held in the month of November. Thus you get about 120 days to prepare for this exam. Therefore, make a power-pack strategy for these four months. You need to create an integrated plan which can also take into account of your current academic pursuit. For example, a Class XII student can integrate topics of Class XII Mathematics syllabus in his/her KVPY preparation plan.



5. Group study: a miracle

Never forget the miracle of group exercise. Nothing is more efficient idea to crack an exam like KVPY than a group exercise. Make a study group of 5-10 friends for regular practice and study. You will find it working magic when every member will come with 10-20 questions a day, thus making you learn at least 50-100 questions every day. But be cautious, you don’t get distracted during your group study. Always remember that you all are together for study and not for fun.



6. Practice and revision: a key

Though you have already prepared for your KVPY along with your class syllabus, but revision of the syllabus is still must for KVPY preparations. Therefore, make a habit of revising topics so that you don’t forget what you have already learnt. Also, a routine daily practice and revision are keys to get speed and accuracy in solving questions. It’s only the clear concepts and time management during the exam which fetches your name to a noteworthy place in the KVPY merit list.

Especially in the last month of KVPY preparation, students are suggested to revise their class notes, important formulas, facts and key theories, and understand their applications. Opting to study new topics in the last week is not advisable.



7. Revisit question bank: avoid mistakes

Create a question bank of those questions which you find difficult during your preparation. Practice those questions in the last week. This will help you remember your most common mistakes so that you will not repeat them in KVPY exam hall.



8. Take as many Mock tests as possible

Mock tests are very important to regularly evaluate your preparation level for KVPY exam. This also helps you to find weak areas and re-do your remaining preparation plan. You KVPY preparation in last two weeks should especially focus on mock tests so that you get accustomed to giving your best efforts in a limited time-frame.

This will help you gain confidence and do away with any kind of nervousness while entering in the exam hall. As you have already solved those papers several times, nothing is going to be new and weird for you in examination hall.



9. Take sound sleep before the exam day and relax

Go early to bed and get up early in the morning on the KVPY exam day. Seven to eight hours of sleep will help you be ready for your exam. It will also help you digest whatever you have learnt in a day before.



10. Stay focused and clam during KVPY exam

Keep calm, cool and stable with your mind before exam. Never get stressed and depressed as exam date approaches. Just try to give your best and if you find your performance was not that well, there is not a need to worry. Always remember, it is just an exam. It is not going to judge your past, present or future.
