Exam Tips:

*Study the complete paper and read it well:
Take 4-5 minutes to review the paper fully before starting off. This will give you a good sense of the paper and its difficulty level. Work out the simple and difficult questions. Simple questions are to be answered first. It will consume less time and the more questions you attempt in less time, the more you feel confident and also have spare time to solve the difficult questions

Skip difficult questions:

*Do not be afraid to leave a question:
even mid-way, if you think you have spent enough time. Do not overspend your time in one or two questions. Just leave and move on. You are not expected to solve all the questions anyways.

Fill out the answers regularly:

*Make sure to regularly fill out the answers too:
It is not worth the time and effort to solve a question if you fail to fill the answer correctly. So give sufficient time to fill the answers. It is advisable to fill the answers every time you have attempted 10-15 questions.

At the last answer all unattended questions. NTSE Stage-1 doesn’t have negative marks for wrong questions, make sure that you attempt the whole 200 questions

Work with your strengths:

*Know your strengths and work with them:
There are certain types of NTSE questions that you may be good at e.g. completion of a number series or geometry etc. During your preparation for NTSE, you must have identified your strength areas. Make sure to attempt all those questions without fail.
