hey, please help me with the books for NTSE.....many people say NCERT is enough for both the stages and when I see the syllabus of NTSE SST I don't find THE MUGHALS, DELHI SULTANATE, THE UNIVERSE, SOLAR SYSTEM, EARLY MEDIEVAL PERIOD and many more. so what to do now? still NCERT is enough??
@ AANCHAL WADHWANI you can study the books of your state. You can go through sst books of class 9th and 10th of your state boards and do some important topics from NCERT and about the topics related to ancient history you should prefer the state boards books of class 8th or you can just download the pdf for the topics of ancient india. At the end preference to the state books is must for stage 1 . HOPE IT WILL HELP FOR YOU :)
NTSE (National Talent Search Examination) is conducted by the State Government and NCERT for class 10th students. You should be the student of Class 10 to be eligible to participate in NTSE.
For NTSE, all the syllabus (Science, Maths, Social Sciences) is from the NCERT Curriculum of 9th and 10th Standards.
Whatever topics you mentioned in the question are available in the books of 9th and 10th. Also, you have to keep the knowledge of older classes with you. Also, topics such as the Universe and Solar Systems are taught in the previous classes. So you may have to refer to Lower classes' books for those references.
So you have to read only NCERT books for preparation of NTSE.
Hope that this is the required information you needed.
Good luck with your preparations!!!
