# KVPY 2015

Today the KVPY (Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana) examination was conducted at various centers across the country. How was the paper?

I've found the physics relatively tough (SA Stream).

How much you guys are expecting? (I gave it in online mode so I don't remember the answers which I have marked). The answer keys for offline mode examination have been released by resonance.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

AIITS 2 was so full of mistakes. The physics portion specially. I managed only 115 :/

- 5 years, 9 months ago

But The Questions In Which Insufficient Data Was Given Were Given As Bonus (I Scored 63/67 In Physics)

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Okay! Actually, the syllabus of the Integrated program doesn't match with that of the normal one. So we have to leave some questions as such. Its a headache.

- 5 years, 9 months ago

yeah i can understand . this is the so called stupid fiitjee system :P

- 5 years, 9 months ago

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Overall easy but there were questions out of syllabus(Complex no. and PnC)

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Ok

- 5 years, 9 months ago

were there many questions from complex no and p&c or only 1-2 ??

- 5 years, 9 months ago

- 5 years, 9 months ago

- 5 years, 9 months ago

EXPECTED CUTOFF Last year, the cutoff for SA stream was declared as 43 out of 100. According to Resonance experts, this year cut off may be 49 ± 3.

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Can anyone upload the KVPY paper ?

- 5 years, 9 months ago

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Thank you !!

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Did Anyone Solved That Toppling Problem ?

And That 2 Marker From Optics (Area That Is Visible ) . I Am Still Not Able To Do Them

- 5 years, 9 months ago

in optics it just maths and i know if i could solve that mathematical problem you also can. though i managed with tough ques but i failed with easy and i think biology was a nightmare for me at least and for me paper was out of 75.

- 5 years, 9 months ago

That was really tough. Are the paper solutions uploaded?

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Yes They Are Scroll Down The Bottom Of The Page I Have Given Links there

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Thanks , Expecting how much?

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Which toppling ? Was it a two marker ?

- 5 years, 9 months ago

No, the glass tab question was two marker.

- 5 years, 9 months ago

That's okay, I am asking about the toppling problem ( I can't remember properly which problem)

- 5 years, 9 months ago

This question- A hollow tilted cylindrical vessel ......

How much expecting?

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Ah yes, I remember now. I am expecting about 60-65.

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Might not qualify this year...

- 5 years, 9 months ago

I think you will.

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Please don't say that u will not qualify......Last time cutoff was 43 so fair chance of getting selected....I hope the same for me too..:P

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Thanks !!

But the paper was tough at that time.

- 5 years, 9 months ago

I think this time bio was very tough..

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Right, being a non-bio student it become really tough for me.

Then came physics as a nightmare!!

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Same here.

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Same with me after solving maths and chemistry I thought its easy to crack kvpy but bio and physics.....:(

- 5 years, 9 months ago

BTW, how was your Phase test-2 I know you're in Fittjee.

- 5 years, 9 months ago

I was getting around 295/480 in advance and 285/360 in mains.

- 5 years, 9 months ago

See in that toppling you only had to make center of mass in such a way that torque of it become such that it is in the direction in which cylinder was inclined.

- 5 years, 9 months ago

What was that questions answer GIF of x multiplied by x minus GIF of x equals 5 ? In which we had to find the number of solutions x ranging from closed 0 to closed 2015. I got my answer as 2010 and so I marked the nearest i.e. 2009 ? How should it be done ?

- 5 years, 9 months ago

No! . The Answer Is 2009 Only . You Got 2010 As The Answer Because You Have Taken A Number With Integral Part 2015 Also In The Solution but that is to be excluded because its fractional part would be 5/2015 and hence total number would be 2015+5/2015 >2015 (it jumps over the range of x)

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Did it the same way...

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Expecting around 65-75. So many silly mistakes. :/ how many of you here are enrolled in FIITJEE?

- 5 years, 9 months ago

I Am Suprised To See So Many FIITJEE Students On Brilliant .

- 5 years, 9 months ago

I am. I don't know my expected score...I see many people here going to FIITJEE Coaching!

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Well I Am Enrolled. I Am Expecting 72-75

- 5 years, 9 months ago

i dont tink offline and online hav different question papers .... and yeah i felt phy and bio .. the worst ... im a fiitjee student btw .....

- 5 years, 9 months ago

frnds ... any idea wat is PwD expansion? ....

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Question papers for online and offline examinations are the same... If you would like to know your mark, you can do it...$\ddot\smile$

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Congo! @Prakhar Bindal for getting such an amazing rank, mine is 281 :-(

- 5 years, 4 months ago

Congrats to you too for being a kvpy scholar! :) I Think the main culprit for all of us was biology in aptitude test

where do you study in delhi?

- 5 years, 4 months ago

I'm not in Delhi. I'm studying in Kota.

- 5 years, 4 months ago

ohh so your home is at delhi and you have gone to kota for your preparations or you are from kota only?

Congratz! . i qualified with AIR 59.

You will Attend Vijyoshi Camp?

- 4 years, 10 months ago

Most probably not.

- 4 years, 9 months ago

AIR 138. SA 2015 . (Bio killed the score )

- 4 years, 8 months ago

Same happened with me. I Scored only 6-7 marks in bio which greatly detroited my overall rank

- 4 years, 8 months ago

- 5 years, 9 months ago

I am expecting my score to be about 60-65.

What about You? More than 100 or less than 100 ?

- 5 years, 9 months ago

LOL! More that 100 $\Rightarrow \dfrac{105}{100}$!!!

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Extra marks for good handwriting.

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Negative Marks For Insect Writing :P

- 5 years, 9 months ago

That's the reason I lose marks everywhere !

- 5 years, 9 months ago

From Where Did You Checked Your Score (FIITJEE Or Resonance)

- 5 years, 9 months ago

I Find FIITJEE To Be More Accurate (Although There Is A Difference of only 2 Answers In Both)

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Bio Was There To Take Me Down :P :)

- 5 years, 9 months ago

how was your experience going to 'AMBALA' for off line paper.

- 5 years, 9 months ago

What was your physics score ?

- 5 years, 9 months ago

just 2 one marker wrong and one 2 marker I left

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Well My Scores Are As Follows- Maths-25/25

Chemistry-25/25

Physics-17.5/25

Biology-7.5/25

I Was not able to do two questions one each in math and chemistry but i solved them by elimination

and got them correct (Anubhav's Method :P)

- 5 years, 9 months ago

When are the results usually declared.... Its getting late this year....

- 4 years, 4 months ago

This year the results might be declared in april....though the exam was online.

- 4 years, 4 months ago

Usually results are declared around 25 march.

- 4 years, 4 months ago

bY THE WAY HOW WAS YOUR BIOLOGY?

- 5 years, 9 months ago

Not very good. Only scoring about 8.5.

- 5 years, 9 months ago

prakhar i am getting maximum marks in physics only. And I was able to solve that lens 2 marker .

The question was quite stick to basics .

- 5 years, 9 months ago

I Left That After Seeing The Diagram Only :D .

Well According To Me Easiest Was Chemistry>Maths>Physics>Biology .

But I Don't Know How You Scored That High In Physics!

- 5 years, 9 months ago

i am expecting around 51 .

- 5 years, 9 months ago

- 5 years, 9 months ago
