The Aakash+BYJU‘S, the national leader in test preparation services, has achieved an outstanding achievement by qualifying 440 students to be eligible for the NTSE 2021 award, which is one of the most coveted scholarships in the country.
Mr Aakash Chaudhry, Managing Director of Aakash+BYJU’S, commented on the outstanding performance, saying, “The result this year has been exceptional.” Our students and teachers have worked really hard to accomplish this goal. Our maximum number of selections in NTSE Stage-2 was 440, which was our highest number of selections to date. Congratulations to all of our students who achieved excellent results in the NTSE (Stage II) 2021. It is the result of the students’ dedication and hard work, as well as the support of their parents and the high-quality exam preparation provided by Aakash+BYJU’S. “I wish them all the best in the future.”
The NTSE scholarship is offered to candidates who wish to pursue courses in scientific and social science up to doctoral level, as well as professional courses such as medicine and engineering up to second-degree level, under the current programme. As of today, approximately 2,000 scholarships are awarded each year in the country, with 15 percent reserved for students for SC, 7.5 percent reserved for students ST, 27 percent reserved for students from other backward classes, and 4 percent reserved for a group of students with benchmark disabilities.
A two-stage selection method is used in the identification of potential employees. While each state or territorial government is responsible for the first stage of selection, the National Council for Educational Research and Training (NCERT) is in charge of the second round of selection at the national level.
It is the mission of Aakash+BYJU’S to assist students in their pursuit of academic excellence. Under the direction of the National Academic Team, it has established a centralised in-house mechanism for curriculum and content development, faculty training, and faculty monitoring. Over the years, students at Aakash+BYJU’S have demonstrated a strong track record of success in a variety of medical and engineering admission exams as well as competitive tests such as NTSE, KVPY, and Olympiads, among others.
