Ntse class 6 question paper 2019

Pankhuri Kumari 27th May, 2020
Sorry, but the NTSE examination is mostly conducted for the students Studying in class 10th. The conducting body for the exam.is NCERT. Earlier it used to be only for class 10th students aiming to provide them scholarship for future studies in the field of science, but now it is also conducted at class 8th and 9th level. But still, there's no provision till now for class 6th students to give NTSE exam.
If you want to ask about some other exam, go for it.
Hope you understand.
Good luck!

how to become topper in NTSE as i am in class 10 also give me timetable to crack both board and NTSE exam

Ketaki Dhotre Student Expert 24th May, 2020


There is no such time table or schedule which can make you a topper. You just need to remember a few points during your preparation. For NTSE the first thing that you need to work on is your mathematics skills. A student good in maths has an edge over the others in solving the MAT section.Language-The language paper will not be too tough but see to it that you don't take too much time in it.Science paper will be strictly based on your state/central board's prescribed syllabus books.Books like Tata McGraw Hill are very useful for NTSE prep( especially for SST and MAT).There is also Arihant's preparation book for NTSE. Give online tests as many as you can.They really help you to manage your time well.Have a proper idea of time. Make sure you don't waste too much time on one question/section. Otherwise you may not get the time to complete the paper.Try to complete the paper atleast 15mins early so that you have time to revise the paper. You follow the same tips for board exam as well like focusing on the important points and revising concepts. Solve past years exam papers. If you are consistent in your work, you can definitely top these exams. Don't lose hope. All the best.

Hope this helps!

Hi Ayush Kumar Singh,

According to the latest eligibility criteria of National Talent Search Examination (NTSE), students who are currently enrolled in class 10 from any recognized school/board  are eligible to apply for NTSE exam.

So, after coming in Class 11 you can't enroll for NTSE exam.
