How to Sharpen your Skills?

To improve your NSTSE result, you need to sharpen your General Knowledge, practical Mathematics skills and your concepts of Science. You can achieve that by practising the following habits.

  • Go grocery shopping for your family sometimes. This is the practical way to learn money management and all the calculations related to money, weight and profit and loss, very quickly.

  • Read newspapers, magazines, and journals daily. This practice will improve your general knowledge and English vocabulary.

  • Participate in quiz shows and activities, which, in turn, will help increase knowledge base in various subjects.

  • Watch TV channels like National Geography, Discovery, Animal Planet etc. to improve your scientific and general knowledge.

Not just for improving your NSTSE results, but the Unified Council has an entire page for self-improvement as well. The Unified Council asks the parent to practice and teach their kids certain things that will improve their knowledge base and other abilities. Parents should interact with their kids and explain new things to them. Letting kids do some fun learning activities can also improve their way of thinking.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

1. How is the National Ranking Decided?

Answer: When more than one person gets the same marks, the ranking priority is decided differently. Individual marks of each subject are taken into consideration. The order of checking marks starts with Mathematics or Biology for PCB students.

If two students with the same total marks have different marks in Mathematics, the one with better marks in Mathematics will have a better rank. Now, if both of their Mathematics marks are also the same, the order of checking is Physics, Chemistry, Biology (other than PCB group) and lastly Critical Thinking. If both the students have got identical marks in all subjects, then they both will be awarded the same rank.

2. Can I be Both City and all India Topper?

Answer: City toppers are decided excluding the All India Toppers. If you are already a rank holder in All India Topper’s list, then you will not be given a place in the City Topper’s list. Many students take part in the NSTSE exam, and the Council wants to reward as many talented students as it can. So this is the way they decide the ranking of the exceptional students.

The NSTSE result is a record for the practical knowledge base that a student has about Science and Mathematics. With improving study environment and increasing competition, getting the same marks as another student is very likely. The Unified Council thus has come up with some unique evaluation techniques.
