I'm expecting 157.According to aryanclasses.com,the cutoff would be around 156 but you say that it would be around 142.That's a big difference.Please take a serious look once again.

what is the minimum mark to pass in ntse 2nd level for a sc candidate??


Teja said...

Nilesh Sir has the best track record in guessing cutoffs. Probably has experience in training thousands of students and feel for the paper analysis. Nobody does it better than him. I have done a computer simulation using stage 1 marks and stage 2 marks of previous years and this year. The results are likely as follows.
A) 180 above - 25
B) 170 - 180 range - 75
C) 160 - 170 range - 150
D) 150 - 160 range - 250
E) 140 - 150 range - 400
Now the cutoff could be a touch and go at around 142.

Niket Dixit said...

Even I think that the cutoff would not go above 142 because this time mat was time consuming and inclusion of language may have been the reason for some difficulty cutoff would be around 140-142.

Anonymous said...

Because of Language test& time consuming mat the cut off would be aroumd 142-145

Kunjal said...

No offence but I think aryanclasses has been around for a longer time and is probably more reputed.

@Kunjal what is the link to the aryanclasses website on which the cutoff is displayed?

Kunjal said...

I guess I was wrong. Aryanclasses have lowered their expected cutoff to 147-151 and I think they would further reduce it in the coming days.Now even I think that the cutoff would be around 142.
Here's the link if you want to have a look at it.

http://aryanclasses.com/NTSE-National-Talent-Search-Examination.htm

@Niket Dixit
When I gave the second level examination in class VIII,the result was declared in August.This time it may come sooner.

shubham gupta said...

official answere key declared.........

Abhishek said...

I think that the following corrections should be done in ntse's official key declared by ncert-
LANGUAGE, q.50- ans (3)
MAT, q.29-should be bonus, q.43 - (2)
SAT, q22- should be 3, q62- should be 1, q73- should be 1(clearly given in ncert book), q78-should be 2, q86-(4), q100-(4). Hope ncert corrects them in final key...

After official key, I m getting 141...is there a chance???

After Official Answer Keys i Am getting 177. i have doubt in some english language questions

Kunjal said...

I think that is because JEE Mains is conducted by CBSE and NTSE is conducted by NCERT.

Anonymous said...

Hey i think ncert should re check their official answer key in language(english)....... Many answers are wrong......

Kunjal , how much r u expecting after official key ?

Anonymous said...

Remember, top 1000 student have already been selected for your bach in class 8 ( NTSE 2011), so cutoff should be lower.
A person getting double chance should grab it.

According to a survey conducted of 50 stage 2 aspirants , results are follows -

160 and above - 2
150 - 160 - 2
142 - 150 - 7
135 - 142 - 10
below 135 - 19

Off a 4000 odd students, 1000 to be selected. Meaning roughly 1/4th. 1/4 of 50 = 13.

The cut off is roughly 138 - 140

For 4000 papers, NCERT takes 3 1/2 months to announce. They announced the keys 2 months ago...what is the process that takes so long?

Any one guess when will stage 2 result declared?

Niket Dixit said...

I don't think that you will be selected with 200 marks because it's National Talent Search Examination and not National SuperTalent Search Examination!:);):0:><

Niket Dixit said...

Just a week to go for the result declaration.

It will be declare at the end of sept, because of 30-40 language test copies are taking more time as per NCERT officials.
