  3. Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)

NTSE Mental Ability Test (MAT) Syllabus

This test is to judge the power of reasoning, ability to think, ability to judge, evaluate or discriminate, ability to visualize in the space, spatial orientation, etc. A variety of questions, for example – analogies, classification, series, pattern perception, hidden figures, coding decoding, block assembly, problem solving, etc. are used for this purpose.

NTSE Scholastic Aptitude Test (LCT) Syllabus (Language Test)

Language Test is designed to judge the power of reading comprehension, logical sequencing; interpretative, evaluative, predictive and creative components of language. The test is conducted for English and Regional Languages.

NTSE Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) Syllabus (Maths, Science & Social Science)

This section is conducted to judge how much of text-book knowledge you have gained. As India doesn’t have any single unified board system, NCERT has not prescribed any particular syllabus for the State Level Examination or for National Level Examination.

You can expect questions that are asked at the National Level (Stage-II) to be standard of Classes IX and X level.

Question Paper: The medium of test is English and regional languages and it comprised of 200 question. The students have to select and mark one right answer from the four given options. Each right answer carry one point each, thus making the total score of the candidate in a test equal to the number of questions answered correctly. However, at the second stage 1/3 mark is deducted for every wrong answer.

Merit Clause: All the students who achieve requisite scores at this level automatically qualify for scholarships that are handed over by NCERT.

Difficulty Level Analysis: No of Questions

Screen Shot 2017-05-14 at 6.48.37 PM

Resonance Experts made the following observations:

  • Mental Ability: Paper was lengthier than last year’s paper and that is why it is considered more difficult than last year’s paper.
  • Chemistry and Biology: Both these subjects had lengthier and confusing questions which made both of them relatively difficult from last year.
  • Physics: The paper was relatively easy than last year as questions were fairly straight forward.
  • Mathematics: The questions in mathematics were difficult than last year as the focus was on complex topics this year. Two questions of common roots were particularly ambiguous.
  • English: The paper was relatively difficult than last year’s paper.
  • Social Science: Paper was extremely lengthy and 8 questions came out of syllabus which made it a difficult paper to solve.

Overall, it was observed that the paper was on the tougher side compared to last year and thus cutoff is expected to decrease.
