my Son got 153 in ntse 2020 Kerala with the answer key given for verification and comments. what are his chances of clearing?

thomas joy 1st Dec, 2019

Hi Chikku,

NTSE exam 2020 result will be declared on second week of February  2020 and the cutoff for the exam will be affected by the following factors the

Number of students attended the exam the difficulty of the exam

Highest score scored by candidate and the lowest score of a candidate

Number of seats available

last year the score was 146 for general and 128 for OBC

For 2020  the predicted score is 146 155 for general and 130- 140 for OBC.

So by getting 153 marks, your son has a better chance of qualifying, anyway wait till the result is out.

Hope you get it,Thank you


i get 138 in ntse but there seem many mistakes in the official ntse Maharastra answer key such as bonus marks are not given because of rejected questions. so do i selected for 2 nd stage and i m from SC caste . do i?

kausthub kodamagulla 3rd Dec, 2019


Considering your marks, It would be very tough to say that. As the expected cut-off lies between 140-150, there is a good chance of you getting selected for second level of Ntse(National talent search Exam) if mistakes were taken into account . Please refer this link for further details.


actually my son is studying in 7th standard how do I prepare him for NTSE exams

Arin Mishra 1st Dec, 2019


Since your son has quite a lot of time to prepare for the exam so I would suggest to start with development of MAT skills, Strengthen Mental Ability section as it requires time to develop. Since, NTSE exam is from the syllabus of class 9th and 10th so you can initially start by NCERT of Social Science as Maths and Science of 9th and 10th for a 7th standard student will be tough to handle at this stage. You can start with basic topics of 9th and 10th class for a start. Try to familiarize him with the topics and pattern of the examination by showing the previous years question paper. For further detail about the preparation you can refer to this link.
