NTSE Exam Preparation


National Talent Search Exam Preparation

The National Talent Search Examination is one of the most prestigious scholarship examinations in India. The aim of the examination is to identify talented students across the country and award them with a scholarship program so that they can pursue their further studies. The examination is conducted by National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT).

The students are identified through a two-tier examination process i.e. Stage I and Stage II. Students clearing the stage 1 exam are only allowed to sit for the stage 2 examination. So, students must prepare hard for the exam and should be totally familiar with the NTSE Syllabus to score good marks on the exam.
