One of the most coveted scholarships based on academic performance is the National Talent Search Examination. For tenth grade students, the government-administered exam marks students on their mental ability, mathematics, science, and social science. The exam enables scholars to sizable scholarships towards their education fees. Understandably the competition is cut-throat, and the ground for an aspirant to cover is immense. However, the time for a student to prepare is scarce and sporadic. This brings us to online preparation.
What is NTSE?
NTSE stands for National Talent Search Examination and its main agenda is to provide financial aid to talented students in the form of scholarships for their entire academic career. As it is organized by NCERT, it is one of the most prestigious examinations in the country at the high school level. NTSE is conducted in two phases, Phase-1 is conducted by the State & U.T. governments and students who pass this phase are promoted to the 2nd phase which is conducted by the NCERT.
Why NTSE is Important?
An adept student can muster most of the knowledge required through a keen study of the study material at hand, what stumps such student’s chances is the mental ability section that most students struggle with and, require assistance in approaching this. Understanding this, such online courses break down the mental ability section into a finite set of approaches, much like mathematics. Furthermore, these courses might even assist with the lectures through video conferencing.
If the student clears both phases of the NTSE examination successfully, the amount of 500/- Rupees per month is awarded as a scholarship to the student for its entire academic life.
Online preparation, A new way to learn.
Advantages of Online sample papers
Online preparatory courses provide one with flexibility in preparation. However, this flexibility often results in tardiness. The students often put off the preparation in procrastination and end up wasting the resources. Hence, some of the sample exams conducted online come with expiry to keep the pressure of continual improvement. A student who benefits from this is the one with a strong determination.
While the course provides flexibility, the one who utilizes it to improve daily incrementally will reap the most benefit out of the course. They must also appear for the sample exams with seriousness. It is often advised to appear for the test on the same day and time as the exam to mentally prepare oneself. If it is conducted on a Sunday around 10 AM, every sample paper one appears for should be on a Sunday around 10 AM.
