Subject Tests

NTS Subject Tests have their own special attributes:

- These tests help in comprehensive We evaluation of a candidate emphasizing any one required area of study or specialization.

- The scores of NTS Subject Tests interpret the acquired knowledge base of candidates and predict their abilities regarding their specific knowledge, skills and abilities in a number of different ways. These also help in the overall ranking of students.

The NTS Subject Test focuses on evaluating the knowledge base and skills of the candidates in a specific area of study. These Subject Tests are extremely helpful in measuring the potentials, capabilities and knowledge of candidates in specific fields.

The NTS Subject Tests enable assessment and ranking not only in the particular subject on a general competency level but also help in identification of areas of strengths and weaknesses in sub-contents on a disaggregated basis in that particular subject.

NTS offers Subject Tests in various disciplines:

- Computer Science (CS) - Biology
- Physics               - Mathematics
- Chemistry             - Psychology
- English

Graduate Assessment Test (GAT) - Subject V

These tests are designed for those who have extensive background in that specific subject/discipline.

These tests help evaluate students’ ability to analyze and solve problems, understand relationships, and interpret material in their particular field. These are prepared on national level, i.e., to assess students’ capability and existing knowledge in their specific/major area of study.

Presently, these tests are being offered in Computer Sciences and Management Sciences, only. The tests will be held biannually. The scores of this test remain valid for ONE WHOLE YEAR from the test date.

A few of the other study areas are under process and are being considered for Subject Tests.
