NSEJS 2021-22 Counseling

Since 1987, the IAPT (Indian Association Of Physics Teachers) organisation has organised the National Standard Test In Junior Science examination in collaboration with the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE). However, neither the IAPT organisation nor the HBCSE has ever given students with test counselling. The Nationwide Standard Examination in Junior Science is held on a national basis, and the tests are administered by a number of examination centres around the country that are recognised organisations. A student can apply for the exam on an individual basis or through the school, where he or she will be grouped with other students. Frequently, schools organise an educational meet to bring together students in the tenth grade, and those who are interested in taking science-related tests.
