NTSE OMR Sheet aims to minimise the errors while evaluating the National Talent Search Examination Stage 2. The NTSE OMR sheet has been so designed in such a manner so that these can be read by the OMR software. The Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) sheets are being widely used for various entrance exams and competitive exams. The students who have passed the NTSE Stage 1 exam this year and the Indian students studying abroad who have applied for the exam will appear for the NTSE Stage 2 exam on 13 May 2018. This year, there will be only two subjects for NTSE Stage 2, viz. Mental Ability Test (MAT) and Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). One subject Language Test has been eliminated from this year.
