To give students an insight into future competitive exams, irrespective of the field they pursue, CFAL is conducting an All-India level Scholarship Exam, Mangalore Talent Search Contest (MTSC) on December 06, 2020.

 The objective of this exam is to identify students who have the ability to clear National and international level exams, and also give them exposure to the kind of questions asked in these exams.  The last time India gave the PISA test in 2009, only students from Himachal Pradesh and Tamil Naidu attended the test and it ranked 72nd among 73 countries. Since then, there are a lot more changes done, and the current NEP is one of the steps to improve the quality of education in the country. India will try to give the PISA test in 2021 and probably will be restricted to the students of KV, Sainik schools and the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya. The MTSC gives exposure to students on the kinds of questions that are asked in those exams, its test the student’s critical thinking, logical reasoning, approach and concepts at various levels. It will be a centre-less exam, meaning that test takers do not have to go anywhere and can attend it from the comfort of their houses.

Students are required to register for free on www.learn.ignus.in, after which a User ID/password will be sent to them. To familiarize students with the test module, access will also be given to the previous years’ question papers once a student registers.

The questions will test the knowledge in Environmental science, Mathematics, Logical Reasoning for Class 5th and 6th  and students of Class 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th will be tested in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics and Logical reasoning. The Top students will be eligible for prizes worth Rs. 1, 00,000/- and scholarships to various programs at CFAL. All the registered students will also receive career guidance and mentoring sessions on how to prepare for other national level exams.

With India preparing to appear in the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) in 2021, exams like TIMSS and PIRLS and the New Education Policy emphasising on students’ participation at International competitions like Olympiads, examinations like MTSC aim to give students the right exposure to prepare them for such contests. MTSC will help students determine their strengths and understand where they stand at the national level, besides it also helps schools address their areas of improvement and suggest ways on how they could improve to help students succeed in International exams.
