The interviewer panel will quiz you on concepts rather than rote knowledge.

At any cost, do not fumble.

Simply say so if you don't know the answer. Biggest blunder you can do is to play around.

DO NOT GET NERVOUS during the interview.

A longer interview does not necessarily imply top grades. Do not go in there with any preconceived false notions which may add to performance anxiety.

You are among the few hundreds to clear stage 1! Have confidence. Good luck! Pulkit Gupta · 7 months, 3 weeks ago

@Yash Dev Lamba Welcome Yash.

Last few advice and facts which I thought would be helpful.

At any point in the interview if you feel the panel is going rough on you ( which they may) just be calm.

Also be prepared to solve questions on the whiteboard. The panel might just ask you. A faster and efficient solving will definitely impress the panelists.

Best of luck :) Pulkit Gupta · 7 months, 3 weeks ago

@Pulkit Gupta can you please give me some sample questions ? Yash Dev Lamba · 7 months, 3 weeks ago

@Yash Dev Lamba KVPY interviews do not follow a generic model. The session often is more like a spur of the moment conversation between the panel and the student.

As I said buddy- do not form any pre-conceived notions about it which may lead to unnecessary anxiety. Pulkit Gupta · 7 months, 3 weeks ago

@Yash Dev Lamba I have got a doubt. Are the panelists scientists and mathematicians? Or they are just 'anyone'? Swapnil Das · 6 months, 1 week ago

Congrats Yash, hope the interview is at IISC - B or IISER because the panel is good there.All the best do well.

Lastly , remember these points for the KVPY interview-

  1. NEVER try to fool the interviewers with half-knowledge answers and never lie to them.

  2. Be HUMBLE and they will ask you moderate questions .

    3.Dressing up in formals.

    4.Use the white board properly.While answering, draw diagrams and explain them.

    5.If you get stuck somewhere while answering take a pause don't panic at all be calm & composed.
