Over 600 of these scholars have cracked the JEE to secure admissions into IITs while the others have cleared the AIEEE or JEE Mains to pursue an education in engineering and science at premium institutions like NIT and others in the country.
Students are selected for the scholarship after Class 10 through a selection test the Grand Dakshana Selection Test (GDST).
Grand Dakshana Selection Test
The GDST is conducted simultaneously at 50+ centres across India in March/April every year. GDST is also divided into two parts:
Paper 1 : Mathematics and Logical Reasoning.
Paper 2 : Physics and Chemistry.
All questions on Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry are asked from Class 9 and Class 10 NCERT syllabus, although the difficulty level of questions might be higher. Each paper has 50 questions and is to be completed in 90 minutes.
Who Can Apply?
JNV students are invited for GDST, through their school, by Dakshana based on merit at internal examinations during Class 9 and 10. These results are only accepted from the JNVs through their respective Regional Offices. Non-JNV students are not eligible for this program.
How to Apply?
