Last Updated - April 28, 2017

Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana (KVPY) is a Fellowships programme in Basic Sciences. KVPY Exam is scheduled for November 6, 2017. SB/SX is the two streams of KVPY examination.

SB/SX paper consisted of objective type questions. A total number of questions in the paper were 120. The paper had 4 sections in both parts i.e. Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics.


KVPY Section Wise Analysis

KVPY paper was divided into two parts i.e. Part I and Part II. In Part I, the candidates were advised to attempt any three sections out of 4. In Part II, the candidates were suggested to attempt any 2 sections. Candidates found Mathematics section was the difficult one.

Following table comprised of 4 different subjects i.e. Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Biology which shows the total no. of questions along with the marks in each subject:
