KVPY Syllabus

The Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana (KVPY) is a prestigious national level fellowship program in basic science. It is conducted by the department of science and technology, Government of India. The objective of the program is to encourage students to make careers in science research. The KVPY aptitude test does not have any prescribed syllabus. The applicants are expected to study the syllabus of the class they are studying in, in order to clear the aptitude test. The test is conducted for three different streams namely SA, SX and SB.

KVPY SA Syllabus

Students who have completed Class X examination with 75% (65% for SC/ST/PWD) aggregate marks in mathematics and science subjects and have enrolled in Class XI can appear for stream SA. The syllabus includes topics from Class X and Class XI. The syllabus given below is based on the questions from the previous years.
