    The National Talent Search Examination (NTSE) is a national level scholarship program in India to identify and nurture talented students. The scheme is open to students of Indian nationality. Only students studying in Class VIII are eligible to appear for the selection process. As it is organized by an official body (NCERT), it is widely regarded as the most prestigious examination at high school level in the country.
    Selection procedure
    Identification of talent comprises a three-stage selection process. While the individual state or union territory conducts the first stage selection, the second stage selection at the national level is carried out by the NCERT, followed by the interview of the selected students.

    Eligibility
    Before 2006, all students studying in Class X in any type of recognized school are eligible to appear at the state level examination from the state in which the school is located. The state can impose any other eligibility condition for appearing in the screening examination like any qualifying percentage of marks in the previous annual examination, etc. But from 2006 onwards, a separate examination for Class VIII has started. More than 1,50,000 students appear for the screening examination of the NTSE every year.

    From 2008-2009 National Talent Search examination will be held only for class VIII.

    State level examination
    The state level examination has two parts for nominating the required number of candidates for the second level test to be conducted by the NCERT.

    Part-I:Mental Ability Test (MAT), and
    Part-II: Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)

    National level examination
    Candidates acquiring more than the required percentage in the state level examination are eligible to appear for the national level examination. The national level examination has two parts for nominating the required number of candidates for the interviews to be conducted by the NCERT:

    Part-I:Mental Ability Test (MAT), and
    Part-II: Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)(with questions on history, civics, geography, maths, physics, chemistry and biology.)

    Interview
    Candidates acquiring more than the required percentage in the national level examination are eligible to appear for the interview. The interview pattern is based on the regular courses, that is the general subjects taught in the schools like science, history, geography , civics etc. It must be noted that the questions asked may be related to theoretical parts of the subjects and may not be just general questions. It is advised to study the school curriculum carefully. Normally you must concentrate on SAT rather than MAT

    Syllabus
    There is no Prescribed syllabus for the NTSE examination. However, the standard of items conforms to the level of CBSE Class 8 Public Examinations.

    Scheme of Testing
    The scheme of testing is given below:

    Test Duration No. of Items Maximum Marks Qualifying Marks(General) Qualifying Marks(SC/ST)
    Mental Ability Test (MAT) 90 minutes 100 100 40 (generally) 32 (generally)
    Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) 90 minutes 100 100 40 (generally) 32 (generally)
    Interview 15-20 minutes  25 Not defined Not defined

    However, in the 2008 examination, the maximum marks obtainable were 90 in both the MAT and the SAT. The passing marks are 40% (36 marks). The 90 marks in the SAT were split as follows: -Mathematics: 20 marks
    -Science: 35 marks
    -Social Sciences: 35 marks

    Scholarship
    The students who qualify for the interview are eligible for scholarship. The amount of scholarship has been enhanced to Rs. 500/- per month for all the students studying in Class IX onwards (irrespective of the class/ course) except for Ph.D., B.Tech etc., wherein it is Rs.1000/- paid as per UGC norms. The older system of book grant has been removed. The criterion of parental income for deciding payment of scholarship has also been discontinued.
