NTSE Mock Test – SAT

During an exam, one thing that plays a crucial role apart from knowing all the topics and concepts is your speed. If you are not capable of completing your test on time, then all your months of preparation will go in waste. SAT includes some of the most time-consuming subjects like Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry. If you want your hard work and determination to pay off in the right way, you would need to improve your speed and to do the same you should attempt as many mock tests as possible.  Here’s a mock test paper designed by our highly experienced faculties. Try to solve more such papers from the study material section of NTSEGuru to ace your NTSE.
