NSTSE 2018

Posted by

National Level Science Talent Search Examination – 2018 is a diagnostic test which helps students improve their overall learning ability and educational performance.

NSTSE helps each student to know early, whether he/she has properly understood a concept, so that immediate action can be taken to correct the aberration and pave a path for improvement. Often, students develop conceptual gaps which increase as the students go to higher classes and turn those into a ‘phobia’ for the subject. School tests – including board exams – tend to test children superficially, only to the extent what they have memorized. But the important skills like the ability to think independently and reason logically – most critical in today’s world – are often not aimed at or tested in school tests. Thus, unlike other tests which may only find out how much a student knows or has memorized, NSTSE measures how well a student has understood the concepts.

The focus on fundamentals is very important as when the child finishes studies he/she will have to face the competitive world armed with those fundamentals. Even while opting for higher studies, a student has to go through a complete scan of what he/she knows and how much. Exams like IIT-JEE, AIEEE, AFMC, AIIMS, GRE, GMAT, CAT etc., are designed to test the fundamental strength of a student. Hence the need of the hour is to build the fundamental-base as strong and as early as possible. This exactly is the philosophy behind Unified Council’s NSTSE.

NSTSE is unlike other tests in many different ways. It

  • has interesting questions that require thinking, not simply a recall.
  • provides detailed skill-wise feedback highlighting strengths and weaknesses
  • provides a benchmark of the student’s performance and his/her peers.
