The candidates after scrutiny of their documents will be called for interview. The interview will generally assess the candidates personality as well as the inclination towards taking up research as a career.
How to prepare for interview?
Try to be a master of what you say you have learnt; I mean, the portions of class XI and XII. Give extra attention to the portions you like.
Choose some portions of Physics or Chemistry or Maths or Biology of which you are a fan. Collect as much details of that area including recent research in those fields. Reading the Science Research Publications such as Nature, Nature Physics, New Scientist, Physics Today and the like will help you in this. These magazines are generally available in Public libraries and British Libraries.
You should be able to explain well “Why you want to take up research?”
Have more doubts? Your questions and doubts are always welcome.

Found your name in the selection list?
The next step is interview. The weightage for interview is 50%
As KVPY is installed to promote research, your research aptitude and observational skills will help you to excel in the interview. I suggest the following for preparing for the interview.
- Revise your basics. (Especially the basic Mathematical methods and procedures)
- Think critically on what you’ve learnt and read.
- Keep abreast with latest developments in science and technology. Read international science publications like Nature, New Scientist etc from University Library, British Library, Public Library etc. (KV Pattom Library also has a good collection of Indian journals – like Resonance)
- Analyze your interest and find in which field and if possible, on which topic, you would be interested to do research. If you can decide, make an extensive background study of the topic to find what all researches have already been undertaken in the field and what are the findings and what are the scope of doing research in that area. Note down your findings and observations and if your mind permits, try writing a research paper.
Boost confidence, believe in yourself, do regular preparation, Wish you all the best.
