akansha expert
Hi Dev, IISc accepts admissions to its Bachelor of Science (BS Research) 4-year UG Programme through KVPY. Though, one needs to have a rank above the cutoff rank, which varies year to year upon the number of applicants (applicable to both SA and SX). (Please take special note of the fact that BS (Research) is a course which offers studies in Pure Sciences and is different from B.Tech.)
