KVPY 2014 Form Submission & Exam dates:

KVPY 2013 Form Submission and Exam dates
To find out the dates for next exam i.e. KVPY 2014 exam and form submission, I analyzed the dates for last four KVPY exams and the date trend analysis is given in the table at right.

KVPY notification is issued every year on 11th May (the Technology Day) and 2nd Sunday of July. Accordingly therefore, KVPY 2014 exam notification should come out on 11th May, 2014 and 13th July, 2014. Similarly, KVPY exam is held either on the last Sunday of October or 1st Sunday of November. Accordingly therefore KVPY 2014 exam should be held on 2nd November, 2014 or 25th October, 2014.

Hope with above information on KVPY 2013 notification, form availability & submission enables you to schedule your preparation for the exam. How to prepare for KVPY? Please find about it in my detailed blog post titled: KVPY 2013 Syllabus, Papers, Books and Exam pattern.
