The topics for NSEA and INAO are different from each other in terms of the types of questions and the pattern. The questions that come for NSEA requires a lot of calculation work. Topics such as probability, gravitation, optics, mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, waves, electromagnetism are important. The questions for NSEA are not tough but time-consuming. Questions from pure astronomy is a rare case.
