According to the details given by you for NTSE the result should be released in last week of April but, its 3rd May now, but there is no update about the results..!! whats going on..?? if you cant provide the exact details then dont post such wrong information..!!
NTSE (National Talent Search Exam), this is a national level exam and this exam was conducted and dates for the exam varies from State to State. Till now only one state i.e. Karnataka has declared the NTSE Result for Karnataka state only, it was released by KSEEB. NTSE in Karnataka was held on January 24th, 2021 and results were declared on March 9th, 2021.
The NTSE Results of all the other states have not been released yet they are yet to be release. So you will have to wait until all the States declares the NTSE Result (Remember the dates of every state may vary from state to state like Karnataka). But the results of all the other states are likely to be release in the month of May, 2021. NTSE phase 2 exam has been scheduled to be held on June 13th, 2021 and results for the same will be released in the month of September, 2021.
