National Level Science Talent Search Examination 2016:
NSTSE is a diagnostic test which actually helps students improve.
Related / Similar Contest : Unified Council NSTSE 2016 Result
Unlike regular tests which try only to find out how much a child knows (or has memorized), NSTSE measures how well a student has understood concepts and gives detailed feedback on the same, to help them improve.
Thus NSTSE helps each student know whether he/she has actually understood a concept early on so that immediate action can be taken. Often students have conceptual gaps which increase as they progress and when they reach the higher classes, they develop a “phobia” for the subject.
School tests – including board exams – tend to be superficial, testing what children have memorised. But the important skills like the ability to think independently and reason logically – critical in today’s world – are often not emphasised in school tests.
The focus on fundamentals is so important that when the child finishes studies he/she will have to face the competitive world armed with these fundamentals. Even while opting for higher studies, the student has to go through a complete scan of what he/she knows and how much. Exams like IIT-JEE, AIEEE, AFMC, AIIMS, GRE, GMAT, CAT etc., are so designed to test the fundamental strength of student. Hence the need of the hour is building the fundamentals base as strong as possible.
This exactly is the philosophy behind the Unified Council’s NSTSE.
NSTSE is unlike other tests in many different ways. It:
** has interesting questions that require thinking, not simply recall.
** provides detailed skill-wise feedback highlighting strengths and weaknesses
** provides a benchmark of the student’s performance with peers all over the country.
Thus, NSTSE focuses on IMPROVEMENT rather than comparison or grading. It also reduces the stress of exams by checking UNDERSTANDING rather than FACTS.
70,00,000 students have participated in the exams conducted by Unified Council till date.
