• The MAT section tests is to judge your power of reasoning, logical sequencing, reading comprehension, etc.

  • The language test is designed to test your command over the language subject, that is, English or Hindi.

  • The SAT section tests how much knowledge you have gained in school reading your textbooks. As different schools (or boards) in India follow different course books, there is no prescribed book or syllabus for NTSE.
