What is the syllabus for NSO Level 2 class 5

Siddhi Shenoy 30th Nov, 2019

Hello Mahak,

For NSO Level 2, the syllabus is same as level 1. Only, the difficulty level will be higher than level 1. Level 2 is difficult but with regular practice you can score a good rank. Attempt NSO level 2 previous years question papers and mock tests.

Basically syllabus is divided into 4 sections.

  • Section 1: Logical reasoning- Patterns, coding decoding, mirror images, geometrical shapes, analogy and classification, water images, embedded figures, ranking test, alphabet test, logical sequence of words,  puzzle test, direction sense test
  • Section 2: Science- Human body and health, plants, earth and Universe, matter, natural resources, force, work, energy, Pollution and calamities
  • Section 3: Achievers section- same as section 2 but higher order of thinking

Good luck!


Hello Im kush Pachauri and Im studying in class11th PCM and Im in weak Chemistry and Maths So how can I improve my weak subjects jor JEE , BITSAT, NSO. May I joined coaching for improve my skills and maths and chemistry .Plzz suggest me what should I do..? Im in Agra Plzz tell me best coaching..

Rehan Alam Student Expert 29th Nov, 2019

Dear aspirant,

If you are facing struggles with any of your main subjects then the first thing you should do is buy a good book of that subject. the type of questions that has been asked in competitive exams and your boards are quite different and required a different methodology to study them. The questions in your board examinations are more concentrated on direct application of the concept on the definition of the concept itself however the questions in competitive examinations are more of application of that concept. if you are in 11th class then you have a plenty of time to first get your basics clear and then I want to prepare for competitive exams in your next year.

Coaching is always a good idea if you are facing a lot of trouble in understanding the concepts you can always join a coaching.

Some of the good institutions for preparation are

RESONANCE, Aakash institute, etc.

Hope this helps. thank you.


Hii... Im kush Pachauri and Im studying in class11th PCM and I got 60.5% in class 10th.So, May I crack JEE, BITSAT,NSO and other scienceOlympiad exams with out coaching.My DOB is 2sep,2005 in 10th marksheet.And I want to become an astronomy scientist in my life.Plzzz suggest me what should I do..?

Harshita Gupta 29th Nov, 2019
Hey Kush,
You can crack all the exams you wish to without any coaching for sure. All you need to do is focus on your goals.
Going to coaching doesn't help if you don't study at home afterwards. I am myself going to coaching for GATE Exams. But regardless of that, I have to study at home for my exams.
So don't worry about this, just work hard for what you want.
Now about, Astronomy scientist,
For that you will have to complete your graduation and you will have to complete 12th from science stream.
  • Eligibility criteria for becoming Astronomy scientist is that you have to be a graduate in or any equivalent examination with 50% score.
  • After 10+2, you can do with mathematics and physics as your subjects.
  • If you want to pursue experimental or instrumentation astronomy, then you can go for electrical engineering after 10+2. Then you will have to give an entrance exam called JEST which will make you eligibile for specialisation in astronomy and you can also do Ph.D. To become an astronomer, Ph.D. is compulsory.
Many colleges may take their own entrance exam.
Hope this helps!

Unfortunately you missed the opportunity this year as NSEP is conducted in the month of  November.

For NSO you have 50 questions in total and 3 sections:

1 Physics & Chemistry - 25 questions 1 mark each

2 Achievers Section - 5 questions 3 marks each

3 Maths/ Bio - 20 questions 1 mark each.

The Exam was conducted in the month of November.

You can try for INPhO, RMO, Junior Science Talent Search Examination, IMO etc..

All the Best.

howvto understand the concepts in the question easily as the level of questions are high from their standered

Naveen Meena Student Expert 20th Nov, 2019

Dear Archana, talking about NSO, the level of questions is above average. It's not true for every question. More than 75% questions are from your syllabus. Rest  are the HOT questions which require in depth knowledge of your syllabus.

Understanding the questions of higher level is not that tough, you can borrow or download previous year question papers and check the questions, just mark those questions whose level you think is more than average. Now you have a question bank, start preparing those topics, first clear the basics,next try to solve more questions from other books. You can find many competitive level questions from one topic in books or online.

Practice is the key. If you have enough practice then you will be able to solve the problems more quickly and since you have practiced alot from those topics understanding the concept won't be that tough.

All the best

Hope this helps

Hi Manjusha

It is good that you are looking up to old questions papers for the exam but NSO question papers are not uploaded online this early so I am very sorry to say that you won't be able to get the question paper right now. You will have to wait for a while till they are supplied to the market online or offline.
