NO interviews in National Talent Search Scheme

Under pressure from a stream of Right to Information applications, National Council for Education Research & Training (NCERT) has decided to drop the interview format from the National Talent Search Scheme from this year. 

Started in 1960s, the National Talent Search Scheme offers a thousand scholarships to talented school children after they clear a two-stage selection process in the eight standard.

Some 4,000 students appear for the second stage national level examination and around 1,500 of them are usually called for an interview. Of them, 1,000 are then granted the scholarship on the basis of their performance in the interview. 

The NTS consists of a stage I exam conducted at the state level and a stage II exam at the national level. The NTS stage II will be held on May 8 this year
