The NTSE comprises two stages which consist of objective questions. They are divided into two sections: MAT and SAT.
The mental ability test (MAT) is used to assess a student's overall potential in terms of problem-solving and logical reasoning abilities. It tests their mental acuity in a limited amount of time. These abilities are tested using a variety of questions involving data analytics, verbal and nonverbal reasoning, figure problems, and so on. It examines a student's approach to mapping and solving a problem in general and puts their thought process to the test. It is one of the most important criteria for screening applicants based on their comprehension and capacity to comprehend.
