NTSE Sample Papers should be your first tool to prepare for NTSE written tests - both at state level as well as at national level. However, from this year onwards (i.e. NTSE 2013), this test is being organised for Class-10 students instead of Class-8 as in previous years. NTSE prep materials (i.e. Sample Papers & Books) currently available both in the market and on the net is still for Class-8.
NCERT has announced exam notification for NTSE 2013 barely few days back and slowly I expect the materials to be available both in the net as well as in book stores. I will be on the lookout for these NTSE exam papers and books for Class-10 and would post them here as and when I spot them.
Meanwhile, I am posting the links below which you can lookout in the future for arrival of the NTSE 2013 (Class-10) sample paper & books. But before that, you should know the exam pattern/format of NTSE - NTSE has two parts:
Part-I: Mental Ability Test (MAT): Questions on analogies, classification, series, pattern perception, hidden figures, coding-decoding, block assembly, problem solving etc. is asked
Part-II: Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT): Questions on Science, Maths & Social Sciences (Class-9 & Class-10) would be asked.
