Careers360: Congratulations for your success in first stage of NTSE! What is the secret of your power performance?

Aditi Vikas: Thank you so much. It became possible only because of regular practice, clear concepts and guidance of my teachers at coaching.

Careers360: How did you find the difficulty level of the exam: overall and section-wise?

Aditi Vikas: I found all sections easy to moderate. Since I had been taking mock tests regularly, it turned out to be very helpful in cracking this exam. I was more comfortable with MAT, and SAT was also not a too tough for me.

 

Careers360: Please tell us in details about your preparation strategy for Mathematics, Science and Social Studies separately?

Aditi Vikas: I devoted more than two hours each day for NTSE preparations. For Mathematics and Science, I gave one hour but for Social Science, I needed to spend more than an hour daily.

 

At present, I am only preparing for my Class X exam. After exams, I will start preparation for NTSE Stage 2. All the class tests that I took were a source of confidence and an appropriate medium to analyze my performance.

 

Careers360: Now you would be appearing for second stage on May 10. What is your strategy for the same?

Aditi Vikas: I would plan in the same way as it was in the last stage but after my Class X exams. My strategy will be same as it was in the first level and I will try my level best for stage 2.

 

Careers360: What are your expectations with the upcoming NTSE stage?

Aditi Vikas: It’s very hectic preparation time for me before this competitive exam. I know that with hard work only, I will be able to crack this exam. I hope for the best.

 

Careers360: Do you turn to any recreational activity before appearing for the exam?

Is Quantitative Ability going to be included in NTSE from 2021?

Nikhitha Sai 22nd Feb, 2020

Hello aspirant. Every year NTSE doesn't release any syllabus in specific. As in nothing called official syllabus will be released. Basically 2 papers. MAT and SAT. MaaT usually itself will be based on quantum logic and reasoning. SAT consists of maths, science and social. NCERT books of class 9th and 10th, preparing them would be more than enough.

Nothing called quantitative ability in specific. Already embedded inside MAT part

Hope this helps

Regards

Nikhitha
