How to Prepare for NTSE 2020?

Here are some NTSE preparation tips to help you ace the exam with high scores-

1. Understand Basics

Students must understand the basic concepts well and learn how to apply them to various problems instead of just mugging up the facts. Only the practical use of knowledge will let one win the coveted scholarship. Besides, it is mandatory to know the exam patterns and syllabus of both stages, so that students can make a proper study schedule. Below are the exam pattern and some important topics-

NTSE 2020 Syllabus

Students must cover the entire syllabus of class 9 and 10 to prepare for NTSE 2020 Exam as NCERT doesn't provide any specific syllabus for the test.

Sections

Important Topics

NTSE MAT Syllabus

Blood Relations, Coding-Decoding, Venn Diagrams, Distance and Direction, Ranking and Arrangements, Word Problems, etc

NTSE Science Syllabus

Reproduction, Measurements, Carbon & Compounds, Motion, Force, Work & Energy, Source of Energy, Acid, Base & Salt, Meta & Non-Metals

NTSE Social Science Syllabus

NTSE Mathematics Syllabus

2. Prepare Notes

NTSE 2020 preparation can be very fruitful if candidates prepare notes to learn formulas, definitions and equations. Logically, writing down these formulas should help one to learn them easily. Alongside, it is an easy way to carry notes wherever you want instead of carrying the heavy books. At the time of revision you don't have to read the complete chapter, just go through these notes thoroughly to revise the syllabus.

3. Revise Regularly

Revision is an important part of every preparation strategy. Without revision, students can easily forget important facts easily. Hence, it is advised to revise the previously covered syllabus before moving to a new chapter. This will help you to keep a hold on the important topics and save you from the last minute hassles. You can also revise the important topics by solving NTSE 2020 sample papers.

4. Ask the Experts

As candidates have to prepare for NTSE stage 1 along with 10th board syllabus and for stage 2 thereafter, they will not have much time to research on a topic that isn’t simply understood. Candidates should ask friends or someone who is qualified enough to explain it and move on. Check the NTSE Topper's Interview


5. Group Study for NTSE Preparation

Studying with a group of friends is always fun. Students can sit with friends and cousins of the same age and study together. Explaining things to others and listening to other’s points of view offers a rich study experience. This helps in understanding the concepts faster and easier. Alongside, boring topics will become interesting in group study sessions and help students to extend their study schedule longer.

6. Solve NTSE Previous Year's Question Papers

Solving NTSE question papers and sample papers regularly should give you a fair idea of important topics and sections. These previous year's papers will also make students familiar with the exam pattern, marking scheme, duration etc. Students are advised to solve the question papers or NTSE sample papers within the stipulated time. Prioritise your study list accordingly.

7. Exercise and Keep Fit

Small recreational breaks during the study hours for jogging, cycling or a 15-minute round of badminton can help candidates freshen up and be more alert for the next rigorous study session. Also be sure to sleep a lot, eat fresh fruits and vegetables, and smile a lot. These little things will go far in keeping one healthy, confident and relaxed.

Best Books for NTSE Preparation

Apart from NTSE preparation tips, candidates must also know the best books for NTSE 2020. Since NCERT will be conducting the exam, a thorough revision of the textbooks should be helpful. However, one has to be selective while studying these books as not all topics might be important from NTSE point of view. Instead, candidates may pick up focused NTSE 2020 study material that has been developed to highlight the topics that are more important for this particular exam. Find the syllabus of NTSE 2019 below to know the topics covered in the exam.
