NTSE Syllabus 2020
1. How to Prepare for NTSE Test?
Ans. First, the aspiring candidates need to be well aware of the entire syllabus and put more focus on the topics which they find difficult. Everyone should organise and maintain a proper study timetable and prepare accordingly.
Next, choosing the right books is also necessary for the NTSE exam. Besides learning the concepts, students must opt to solve the sample papers available online to get an idea of the question pattern.
Students must also make a note of the time they are taking to solve the entire sample paper. This will help them to manage time during the examination. Candidates must also prefer taking breaks in between to refresh their mind, eat healthy food, and take adequate rest to stay fit.0
