Olympiad/KVPY

About Olympiad/KVPY:

This mode is for admissions to our undergraduate and dual degree programmes, for applicants who have the distinction of being selected for Olympiads at the national level or earned a high rank in KVPY. In appreciation of their distinction, applicants in this mode will be shortlisted and called directly for an interview. The decision on final offer of admission is solely based on the interview performance.
Graduates of the dual degree programmes earn two degrees: B.Tech and MS. The Masters degree requires completion of a research thesis. The programme prepares students for research-oriented jobs and higher studies. The duration of the programme is 5-years.

Am I eligible ?

You are eligible if you passed 12th class or equivalent this year, by June 2022, with Maths, Physics and Chemistry, and belong to any of the following categories:
  • Selected for training to represent India at certified International Olympiads in Informatics, Linguistics, Mathematics or Science (Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry and Physics) during the last 4 years. The qualifying Olympiads for each programme have been listed in the table below. Other Olympiads (including the Junior Science Olympiad) will not be considered.
  • Received a gold or silver medal at the Indian National Olympiad in Informatics (INOI) during the last 4 years. Such applicants are eligible for only the CSD programme.
  • Hold a KVPY rank. Among those who apply through the KVPY mode, the top 200 will be invited for interview. Such applicants are eligible for only the CND programme.
