KVPY Past Papers

Cracking Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahana Yojana (KVPY) is an ambitious goal for any science student. Going through KVPY previous year papers is a good strategy for any KVPY aspirant.

At askIITians, we recommend our students to go through KVPY past year question papers at various stages:

1. Students should check out KVPY previous papers after going through the entire syllabus once. This will help them to have an understanding of what kind of questions are they preparing for and what are the things they should focus on.

2. They should again go through KVPY previous years question papers for practice. Once they read a chapter, they should try to solve questions related to it from KVPY past papers. One can also cross-check their answers with the help of KVPY solved papers that contain step-by-step explanation of how to answer a question.

3. KVPY papers can be quite useful during revision and analyzing your strong and weak points. At Askiitians, we offer SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) report as well as recommendations for students who opt to appear for our KVPY test papers. This report can help you put your finger on what exactly you need to do to make sure you get best scores in the actual exam.

4. KVPY last year papers are always the most important as they are closest to the current exam pattern. Hence, you should pay extra attention to this paper.
