Five students studying at Centre for Advanced Learning (CFAL) Mangalore qualify for the final stage of the prestigious NTS examination.

Selections from Dakshina Kannada – 6 (Five from CFAL)


NTSC 2018


Success in the NTSE examination is a great achievement. These selected students have carved a name for themselves and for our region by qualifying in the statewide NTSE examination. They will now appear for the final stage of NTSE that will be held on 13th May, 2018. 

National Talent Search Examination (NTSE) is conducted by National Council for Education Research and Training (NCERT), Government of India. The purpose of the exam is to identify outstanding students of 10th standard and help them get the best possible education in India. For this, NTSE scholars receive generous financial assistance from the government. Every year 1000 students from all over the country get selected as National Talent Scholars and receive the scholarship. 

NTSE examinations test analytical and logical skills. A good understanding of the subject is needed and rote learning or memorization will not yield results. In earlier years, there were very few selections from Mangalore in NTSE. Since CFAL began instilling an interest in math and science in Mangalore, this number has consistently increased and currently, CFAL is breaking all records in the region with outstanding performance by its students. 

CFAL aims to promote a passion for Math and Science learning among students and has the best results in Mangalore in all STEM related examinations including JEE, NTSE, KYPY, Olympiads etc. The outstanding results of our students proves that given the right learning environment, children from the region can outperform their peers from the Tier 1 cities. While rote-learning and learning for the sake of marks characterizes many institutions in the region, passion for the subject is what CFAL aims to attain. The outcome is deep understanding of the subject and excellence in math and science. The vision at CFAL is to inculcate interest in basic sciences and to encourage research and innovation in the field of Math and Science. 

More Information: Success in the NTSE examination is a great achievement. In Karnataka, 81,698 students took the examination which was held on 5th November 2017 and only 194 students (0.237%) including all categories have been selected among them. A total of 5,235 students had appeared from Dakshina Kannada and 6 students among them are selected (0.11%). This shows that the selection rate of our district is less than the average for the state. Department of State Education, research & training (DSERT) conducts the first stage of NTSE.
