The KVPY exam includes 75% of the marks in the Aptitude Test + 25% of the marks in the interview.
KVPY is one of the most prestigious examinations conducted in India – it is initiated and funded by the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India. The objective of this exam is to identify students with talent and aptitude for research; help them realize their academic potential; encourage them to take up research careers in Basic Science and ensure the growth of the best scientific minds for research and development in the country. These examinations require analytical skills and logical thinking- rote learning or memorization will not yield results.
Besides receiving a scholarship of Rs.80,000/- to Rs.1,12,000/- per annum as fellowship, these students are also entitled to several other benefits. They get direct admission to institutions that specialize in Basic Sciences, they can attend study camps organized by various scientific institutions and can attend lectures and workshops of renowned scientists. Besides this, an I.D. card is provided to them which gives them access to various prestigious Laboratories, Libraries, scientific and research institutions throughout the country.
The school management, principal and staff congratulate Vishnu and Sana for their stupendous performance and wish them a bright future.
