KVPY Interview Preparation Strategy

Apart from questions related to the subject, the interviewee can also ask general questions like “Tell me about yourself” or “Introduce yourself”. So being prepared just for technical questions won’t help. The candidate needs to be smart and spontaneous to answer any question that comes up. Go through the following tips to increases your chances of clearing the interview round:

  • Be confident, speak in a soft yet firm tone.
  • Try managing time by avoiding fillers between your answers and speaking to the point. Long answers tend to sound senseless after a while.
  • Keep a straight posture and be presentable.
  • Be a good listener and listen to questions asked carefully to avoid any mistakes.
  • Revision is very important, so go through the topics of Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics once before going for the interview.
  • Have a demo interview session with your friends or family members and identify your mistakes and work on them.
  • Stay calm and composed during the entire interview session.
  • Practice answering technical questions verbally and remember Mathematic formulae on tips.
