Questions related to NSO

Have a question related to NSO ?

Correct Answer: National Statistical Office (NSO)


Solution : The correct answer is the National Statistical Office (NSO).

The poverty line in India is primarily based on surveys conducted by the National Sample Survey Office (NSSO). The NSSO, under the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation, conducts periodic surveys to collect data on various aspects of economic and social life, including income and consumption patterns. These surveys provide valuable information on poverty lines and poverty rates in India.

Hello

For Academic year 2022-23 there is no such guidelines for individual registration.

This was only valid for year 2021-22 due to covid 19 . So, you can only register through your school.

It would be better to form group of students and reach to school authority to put your demand and request for the same.

If any school doesn't conduct such an intellectual exams , it shows their irresponsible attitude. Shame on them as they are not schools but money-making machine.


The main aim of SOF is to train and enhance developing brains to harness hidden power of students which will indirectly benefit mankind and Nature.

Anyway, You always have options you can participate in other Olympiad like Unified council Olympiad, NTSE.


THANKS


Hey aspirant,

I will surely assist you Can you tell me particularly which exam you’re talking about. All the best!

Hello aspirant,

NO you are not eligible for national Science Olympiad of class 12th as you have said that you have passed class 12th and you will give Improvement Exams now. So, national Science olympiad (level 1) exam can be given by only those students who are in class 1 - 12th.

You must have to be in class 12th or yet to give class 12th to be eligible for National Science Olympiad (Exam).

Further, to know more about the national Science Olympiad for more details, you can follow below mentioned link to know more : https://school.careers360.com/exams/nso
