I am interested to take part in the NAO. Tell me how will I come to know about the details of the exam?
All the relevant information is sent to the schools all over the country along with prospectus and registration forms and posters before the first round and then as the date and venue of the second level is decided, the information is sent to the relevant schools again. The students come to know about the necessary details from their school teachers or through the Foundation's official website i.e.www.epocholympiad.org
You can buy from us or can ask to your Exam Incharge. We provide Olympiad Books for all the 3 exams at very nominal price for classes I to XII in English Medium Only.
My school does not want to register for the NTST exam, but I am very eager to write the exam. Can I do it on my own?
Our Foundation does not encourage individual participation. Students have to register through their schools only.
Definitely yes. This will give you an opportunity to improve your previous rankings, and if you are successful in doing so, you will again be eligible for certificates and prizes.
My school has already dispatched the registration form. I am left out and I want to register myself for the NMO. What should I do?
You can request your school authority to send your exam relevant details and fee immediately to us. We accept it if it reaches us before the last date of registration (usually 4 weeks before the exam).
Sample Papers are sent to all the registered schools. Our website also contains these papers. Sample papers sent to the schools prior to the first level test are helpful and can be used for both levels of NAO.
The competition is a written test of 60 minutes duration comprising of objective-type (Multiple Choice) questions. Each correct answer carries two mark. There will be a separate question paper for each class. There is no Negative Marks for wrong answer.
Results of both the levels of NTS are declared within 6 weeks of the examination. The results are sent to the schools concerned. The results are also made available on our website.
I have taken part in the NAO. Can I also take part in the National Talent Search Test (NTST) & National Mathematics Olympiad (NMO) ?
Yes. You can take part in our all the three Exams.
I have cleared second level of the NTST and I have come to know that I am eligible for an award. I am studying in a different school / passed out from school and pursuing further studies. Will I come to know about the date?
As soon as we finalize the date and venue of the presentation ceremony, we send out the information to the schools concerned. So preferably please be in touch with your previous school. The information will also be put on the website.
I have still not received my Roll No. / Admit Card / Participation Certificate. I have checked from my school authorities and they are also not in receipt of the same. Kindly advise what to do?
Please request your Principal / Exam In charge to inform us about the non-receipt of the above. We will send duplicate copies to your school as soon as we hear from them.
No. It is conducted in English and Hindi medium.
We have less than 50 students in our school who are interested to take part in the NAO. Can we still enroll for the test?
Less than 50 students a school is not viable for the Foundation to hold the exam. Hence at least 50 students should be enrolled from a school so that a school becomes a center.
