NISO - National Interactive Science Olympiad

The Eduheal Foundation is a registered worldwide NGO and, additionally, an academic accomplice of the Google Science Fair. With the perception that there’s a winner in each scholar ready to be determined, EHF has been efficiently presenting the platform to college students in which they could show themselves and find out the hidden scientists and geniuses in them for the beyond a decade.

EduHeal will launch the NISO 2022 examination practice manual after the registration is finished. The manual covers all of the matters college students require, like pattern papers and exam details (pattern, marking, and dates). We will discuss more on the NISO exam 2022 in detail.

NISO 2022 Registration

The NISO examination is open for the scholars of Classes 1 to 12, and the scholars will receive registration paperwork from the schools. A nominal participation fee may be charged from every scholar, a part of which can be retained through the college for its costs as an examination centre. Details approximately the rate/mode of payment etc., may be given withinside the college registration paperwork so that students can be quickly despatched to the registered schools.

The applicants taking part need to be a category 1st to the Class 12 scholar of CBSE, ICSE, kingdom board, or NIOS (National Institute of Open Schooling). The college needs to ship the NISO 2022 application form to attain it earlier than the final date, i.e. August 2021. Students have to post their signed consent paperwork to their respective coordinators.

Please Note: INR 125 (such as 18% GST) for the exam fee is payable for every participant for schools. Moreover, the college will collect a quantity of INR 25 from every scholar closer to the honorarium in price, remuneration to instructors to train and guide.
