Preparation Tips

  • KVPY Preparation Tips 2021: The Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana is one of the platforms which empower the dreams of various students every year in the field of science. For all the aspirants of the science field, it is an opportunity to gear up their career. So we are providing Best Preparation Tips for KVPY to crack Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana (KVPY).
  • For the aspirants, either of the engineering field or the medical, learning the syllabus of KVPY won't be much difficult. The course is almost the same. Hence your preparation can go side by side without affecting studies of any of the exams. Students have tied their knots to be a part of the race. Well, while preparing whether, for a game or an exam, proper training is crucial.
  • 1. Stick to Strategy:

  • To follow such scholarship exams, one needs to follow the systematic approach. The strategy should include details of what topic you find difficult, how much time you should give to each of them. Mark out points at which you are weak and hence work upon them every day.
  • 2. Study Plan:

  • It is not necessary that if your friends are studying for continuous 6 hours, you can too. The key is that evaluate your capabilities without comparison. Don't change your type. There are chances you may undergo high stress due to study pressure.
  • One must formulate a well-planned study routine to ensure that an appropriate amount of time is set aside for each subject and that no subject goes untouched. One must devote about 8 to 9 hours each day for studying with small breaks for an ideal study routine. Phone and social media should be off during this time. Candidates must go through NCERT books of classes 10, 11, 12 and prescribed books for 1st year of UG (if applicable) which contains in-depth knowledge and covers all the relevant topics. Along with studies, candidates must also keep time for exercises like yoga or meditation to reduce fatigue and remain calm and fresh. Spend time with friends and family to feel fresh and motivated.
  • 3. Take Assistance

  • The best guidance can be given by those who have already gone through that stage. Seek the guidance of the scholars and teachers who have prepared for the exam. Their personal experiences can help you a lot to modify your approach
  • Make Optimum Use of Aids

  • Perfection can only be derived from practice. The students should give as many tests as possible. Try not to avoid coaching tests and also enrol for online mock tests. This way, you can get the most out of your studies and evaluate your level.
  • Refer to good books:

  • Quality always matters above quantity. The aspirants should look out for the qualitative references. The examination is all about the core fundamentals of the major subjects. Keep your knowledge and concepts clear to every topic as you go through them.
  • The best study material for KVPY Exam

  • Competitive exams are tough because of their twisted questioning patterns. Sticking just to the study school or the coaching study material is not enough when it comes to cracking such exams. Other than a strong foundation, it is mandatory to have a practice of different types of questions.
  • For best results, keep the concepts and formulas mentioned in NCERT on your fingertips. One can also refer books of H C Verma and R C Sharma.
  • Study plan for KVPY Exam

  • Don't mug up things, make your notes.
  • Don't follow other's studying habits.
  • Keep the last 3 days for revision.
  • Cover easy topics first.
  • Take short breaks.
