Ans. NSTSE examination is conducted at two levels for classes 2 to 12. The syllabus for this test is widely based on the school curriculum itself. Students are asked multiple-choice questions from Mathematics and general science that are common to all boards: CBSE, ICSE, various State Boards, etc. One of the most important things to notice is that this exam discourages rote learning. Instead, logical reasoning and understanding concepts are of primary focus.
Apart from concepts in their curriculum, students from class 3 onwards have to answer the critical thinking section. This section will have questions that test logical and inductive reasoning and conductive application in real-life situations.
