what is EWS in NTSE Registration form 2019?

manasa Student Expert 14th Sep, 2019

Dear Monika,

Monetarily Weaker Section (EWS) in India is a subcategory of individuals having a place with the General Category having a yearly family pay under ₹8 lakhs and who don't have a place with any saved class, for example, SC/ST/OBC (focal rundown). In the event that an EWS competitor's yearly family salary is over as far as possible, at that point he/she will be perceived as an up-and-comer from General class and not from EWS classification.

what is EWS in NTSE registration form 2019 ?

Dinesh Goyal 17th Sep, 2019


EWS refers to Economically weaker Sections. Students whose familiy income is less than 2 lakh per annum are kept under EWS  category. But in NTSE , there is no reservation for EWS candidates. Only reservation is provided to SC/ST/OBC/PH candidates.

Hope it helps!!


is NTSE is important to crack iit. I am in icse board but I want to prepare for NTSE but it is too difficult for me to complete the syllabus of boards as you know icse is too difficult with a vast syllabus

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 12th Sep, 2019

If your aim is to go in IIT you should focus on jee as ntse syllabus is entirely different and the most important thing for you currently is to focus on your 10th boards as ICSE indeed is tough.Dont rush for lot of thing at the same time.Try to be best at one thing at a time.

Good Luck
