What is NTSE?

The National Talent Search Examination (NTSE full form) was established in 1963 as national level scholarship program in India. The scheme's goal is to discover and develop gifted students. Science, social science, engineering, medicine, management, and law are all covered. It aids pupils in expanding their mental abilities as well as sharpening their thoughts. It is sponsored by NCERT and rewards exceptional students by offering a monthly scholarship.

NCERT administers the NTSE examination to students in Class X. You can register using the NTSE official website. The test is divided into two stages: Stage I (State Level) and Stage II (National Level) (National Level). Paper-I: Mental Ability Test (MAT) and Paper-II: Scholastic Aptitude Test make up the NTSE paper (SAT). There are several NTSE books for class 10 available to practice and at Vedantu we have specially designed batches focusing on NTSE with a study package for NTSE Class X.

The State/UT quota will be calculated proportionally based on the number of students enrolled in Class IX and X. Scholarships are granted under the current program to individuals who wish to pursue studies in sciences and social sciences up to doctorate level, as well as professional courses like as medicine and engineering up to second-degree level, provided they meet the requirements.


What are the Benefits of Taking the NTSE Class 10th?
