Congratulations to all KVPY candidates shortlisted for interview for the Year 2011.
|List of students shortlisted under Stream SA|
|List of students shortlisted under Stream SB|
|List of students shortlisted under Stream SX|
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.
