National Talent Search Examination (NTSE) syllabus

NTSE syllabus for Science (SAT)
Science is part of the SAT in NTSE and the section is for around 35 questions, Again the syllabus includes topics from class 6 to 10 and subjects included are physics, chemistry and biology.

Biology: NTSE syllabus includes topics i.e.. Cells, common diseases, nutrition and natural resources. About 10 − 13 questions every year are from biology.
Physics: NTSE syllabus includes motion, gravity, electricity, energy and history of physics. Most of the questions are application based and challenging in nature and will put you in the state of confusion before using any simple formula.

Chemistry: NTSE syllabus includes questions about basic chemical and physical reactions, conservation of energy, properties of solids, liquids and gases, properties of elements under extreme conditions. Again, application is the key so questions could involve running an automobile in cold climate, use of anti freeze etc. The syllabus is for class 8 to 10. Sometimes books and schools motivate and induce you to prepare well from class 9 − 10 text books but we believe that it is not required or undesirable and nor is it the most effective use of your time.
