Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE) is the nodal centre for conducting Olympiad programmes in Mathematics and Sciences.
National Standard Examination in Junior Science(NSEJS) is organized by the Indian Association of Physics Teachers (IAPT). Here, Junior Science means the ‘science’ taught till std. X level. IAPT is an association of Physics Teachers spread throughout the country. It was started by Late Dr. D.P. Khandelwal in 1984.
The Junior Science Olympiad program follows the following 5 Stages – Stage-I: NSEJS / Stage-II: INJSO, Stage-III: OCSC, Stage-IV: PDT for IJSO, Stage-V: IJSO
NSEJS is generally held one week before other NSEs and it held separately in Kendriya Vidyalays on the month of November. If a student will be in the Top 300 merit list, then he/she will be invited for stage II of the selection process. This stage II is the Indian National Junior Science Olympiad or INJSO exam which is conducted in the last week ofJanuary. Approximately Top 35 students selected from INJSO will be fortunate to attend the Orientation Cum Selection Camp (OCSC) for 2 to 3 weeks in April - June at the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (TIFR), Mumbai. This is the third and final stage of the selection process. Top 6 students selected from OCSC will represent India for the International Olympiad in Junior Science (IOJS).
The Mathematical Olympiad Programme in India, which leads to participation of Indian students in the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) is organized by the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE) on behalf of the National Board for Higher Mathematics (NBHM) of the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), Government of India. This programme is one of the major initiatives undertaken by the NBHM. Its main purpose is to spot mathematical talent among pre-university students in the country.
The Mathematical Olympiad programme consists of five stages:
Way to international Olympiad through NSE
Stages of Olympiads
The National Science Olympiad starts with an examination held at nearly 1400 schools across the country and culminates with the International Olympiads at different corners of the world.
The Olympiad programmes include Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Astronomy and Junior Science which have a five stage process for enrollment in each subject separately. Apart from the first stage, the other stages are organized by HBCSE.
The International Olympiad (IO) program follows a five stage process:
|Examination||Paper Pattern||Total Marks|
Multiple choice questions:
|NSEC||80 multiple choice questions, each for 3 marks and Negative (-1) mark for incorrect answer.||240|
|NSEB||80 multiple choice questions, each for 3 marks and Negative (-1) mark for incorrect answer.||240|
|NSEA||80 multiple choice questions, each for 3 marks and Negative (-1) mark for incorrect answer. Questions will be in Physics, Maths and 20% in Basic Astronomy.||240|
National Standard Examinations in Physics (NSEP), Chemistry (NSEC), Biology (NSEB), Astronomy (NSEA)
