** Kindly use Valid Mobile number and Email Id.
** Registration Fees Rs. 50/-.
** Fee Needs to be paid at the Exam Center.
** This is a 2-3 hours objective-type exam designed to evaluate the students’ grasp of concepts in the fields of Maths/Biology, Physics, Chemistry and Logical Reasoning.
** The exams cover areas that are normally taught to students in the 8th, 9th and 10th grades by any educational board in India.
** All questions are of objective type, and the students need to answer them in an OMR sheet.
Currently studying in 10th grade. Decent, stable internet connection. Need to have a Gmail account. For more info, see the FAQ section
After registration, you’ll receive links to join our Google Group and Telegram Channel. We’ll share more details through them. Please do join.
Students will be selected by the Partner colleges based on the following criteria
** LTSE score
** 10th class scores – when they are available
** 9th class score – minimum 60% is required in the appropriate subjects
** Face-to-face interview – this usually happens after all the 10th board exams have finished, and is conducted in 3-4 different places – one each in Kerala, North and South Karnataka
Due to the Covid pandemic, schools have lost valuable time throughout the world. In view of that, the Central Board of Secondary Education in India had decided to reduce the 10th class syllabus by about 30%.
While no study units have actually been reduced, certain sub-topics within those units have been removed completely. With that in mind, we will also base the LTSE questions on this reduced 10th grade syllabus. Please note that there will be no reduction in the 9th grade syllabus.
Please use the following as a guide to prepare for LTSE 2021. Also, we highly recommend that you attempt all the Mock tests that are being offered, because they’ll help you better understand the quality of questions to expect in the final exam.
