National Level Science Talent Search Examination - NSTSE

National Level Science Talent Search Examination - NSTSE 2018

NSTSE is a diagnostic test which helps students improve their overall learning ability and educational performance. related to computers and IT as about testing their aptitude in these streams.

Unlike other tests which may only find out how much a student knows or has memorised, NSTSE measures how well a student has understood the concepts and provides a detailed feedback on the same, to help him/her improve.

Thus 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.

NSTSE is unlike other tests in many different ways:

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

Thus, NSTSE aims at improvement rather than comparison or grading. It also reduces the stress of exams by checking ‘understanding and reasoning’ rather than just ‘knowing’.
