For the two sections of the NTSE question paper, the Mental Ability Test (MAT) and the Scholastic Ability Test (SAT), the key has been uploaded on the Council’s website which will benefit the candidates who took the exam this year. The candidates can go through this key to self-assess their performance and also mail their feedback by July 15, 2012 to NCERT to firstname.lastname@example.org.
