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.

 

I tried my best and worked hard. Qualifying in such an exam was not possible without rigorous practice of all the subjects. I also put emphasis on consistent practice of reasoning section.

 

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?

Aditi Vikas: Yes. Though I get very little time from my preparation schedules, I watch entertainment programs on TV while having my dinner. I like to play outdoor games and sometimes play guitar to recreate myself.
