      We have mailed to all students that there is re-test for those students who have faced technical problem at their exam centre in mass. It does not mean that student who has easily done exam and submit the paper has to give exam again. If your daughter faced problem and could not submit her exam, then only she would be able to appear in next exam. And all such candidates have been communicated by mails dispatched by officials of KVPY regarding their new admit card and new exam centres.
