As many as 2,000 scholarships are awarded for different stages of education right from Class 10 to the doctoral level.

According to a report by Scroll, NTSE consists of two papers — Mental Ability Test (MAT) and Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). The exam is of 100 marks and candidates get two hours to finish the paper.
