Answer: As per the NSTSE exam pattern, each question carries 1 mark. The total marks for class 1 are 40, so the number of questions is also 40. This section has 15 questions from Mathematics and 25 from General Science.
Similarly, the NSTSE question paper for grade 2 has 50 questions for 50 marks, 20 for Mathematics, and 30 for General Science. The NSTSE question papers for classes from 3-8 have 60 questions for 60 marks. There are 5 questions from Critical Thinking, 25 from Mathematics, and 30 from Science.
Classes 9 and 10 have the same marks division and subject-wise weightage. Here, Science is divided into Physics, Chemistry, and Biology with 10 questions from each. Classes 11 and 12 have PCB and PCM divisions, due to which the number of questions from Physics and Chemistry is 15, and that from Mathematics or Biology is 25.
