Hi Deepak, SA, SX and SB are the streams of KVPY exam. These streams are used as an eligibility criterion. If the Candidate studying in class XI, he/She will opt for the exam under SA stream or if the Candidate studying in class XII, he/She will opt for the exam under SX stream or if the candidate have completed a diploma in any science course/studying in the first year of the graduation may opt through SB stream.
