How to Use the KVPY Answer Key 2022?

Candidates can use the answer key to calculate their likely score. Here is how to figure out the KVPY 2022 answer key score:

  • Marking Scheme For SA Stream: SA Stream comprises Part I and Part II. Part I has 60 questions, each carrying one mark, and Part II has 20 questions, each carrying 2 marks. 0.25 marks will be deducted for each incorrect answer for Part I and 0.50 for each incorrect answer for Part II.
  • Marking Scheme For SB/SX Stream: SB/SX Stream also comprises 2 parts – Part I and Part II. Part I has 80 questions, each carrying 1 mark, whereas Part II has 40 questions, each carrying 2 marks. There is a negative marking of 0.25 for every wrong answer in Part I, and 0.50 marks will be deducted for every wrong answer in Part II. No marks will be deducted for leaving the question unattended.

KVPY 2021-22 Score can be calculated with the following formula:

KVPY Score: (Number of correct attempts in Part I x 1 – Number of incorrect attempts in Part I x 0.25) + (Number of correct attempts in Part II X 2 – Number of incorrect attempts in Part II X 0.50)
