KVPY (Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana) Syllabus for SA, SX, SB Stream

Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana (KVPY) started in 1999 is a prestigious national level fellowship program. The examination is usually conducted in the month of November every year and is run by IISc Bangalore. As per official website there is no prescribed KVPY syllabus. Although students are tested for the syllabus from class X/XII/1st year of B.S./ B.Sc./B.Math./B.Stat./M.S./Int. M.Sc. The examination is conducted in 3 different streams namely SA, SX and SB.
