Before starting the Preparation for NTSE, it is important to know the NTSE 2020 Syllabus. The syllabus of the examination has been prescribed by the National Council of Education Research and Training (NCERT). NTSE consists of two stages.

Each stage has two papers comprising the :

  • Mental Ability Test (MAT)
  • Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)

Each of the papers carries 100 multiple choice questions which means that one stage carries 200 questions.

The time duration to complete each paper is 120 minutes.

The questions in the SAT are asked from :

  • Mathematics
  • History
  • Geography
  • Political Science
  • Economics
  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Biology

MAT, on the other hand, deals with :

  • Thinking ability oriented questions
  • Reasoning oriented questions
  • Evaluation oriented questions

It is important for students to focus on every individual unit if they wish to score well in the examination. It is important for candidates to know the entire syllabus of NTSE 2020 as it will help in better exam preparation. Not knowing the syllabus well will make the preparation process very lengthy and hectic. This might also lead students to a probable chance of skipping a topic or two at the time of preparation.
