What is the test about: The NSTSE or National Level Science Talent Search Examination, is a scientifically designed, skill-based assessment developed in India for Indian schools, after a detailed study of the syllabi of different central and state boards. Rather than testing rote learning, it focuses on measuring how well SKILLS and CONCEPTS underlying the school syllabus have been learnt by the student. The test provides information on the strengths and weaknesses of individual students and also entire classes.
Outcome of test: Being an objective-type test, the answer sheets are checked by OMR. A detailed analysis of the results is prepared. Based on this, Unified Council will send an analysis report for each child, identifying the areas of strengths and the areas where improvement is needed. They also send consolidated reports the schools (subject-wise and class-wise) also.
