Congratulating Aakashians, Mr Aakash Chaudhry, Director & CEO at Aakash Educational Services Ltd and Founder & Trustee at Plaksha University, said, “We at AESL believe in imparting quality test preparatory services to students. We are glad to share that 593 students from Aakash have qualified in KVPY aptitude test this year, which is considered among one of the toughest examinations in India. Congratulations to all the students for performing well in KVPY. We are delighted that the hard work put in by our students and faculty has paid off.”
Selection of the students to KVPY is made from those studying in XI standard to 1st year of any undergraduate program in basic sciences having aptitude for scientific research. Candidates will be selected on the basis of their performance in an aptitude test and an interview round. Firstly, a merit list is prepared based on the students’ performance in the aptitude test and the shortlisted students are then called for an interview. The whole process of selection is screened by a committee set up at the Indian Institute of Science.
For receiving a fellowship of KVPY, both aptitude test and interview marks are considered.
At Aakash, we organize mock interviews in the month of January wherein we prepare the students who have qualified the KVPY Aptitude Test for the final interview. In the mock sessions, we tell them the do’s and dont’s of the interview pertaining to the subjects as well as how to present themselves before the jury. We give them a real feedback so that they can prepare well for the final one.
Aakash Institute aims to help students in their quest to achieve academic success. It has a centralized in-house process for curriculum and content development and faculty training and monitoring, led by its National Academic Team. Over the years, students from AESL have shown proven selection track record in various Medical & Engineering entrance exams and competitive exams such as NTSE, KVPY, and Olympiads.
