What is National Genius Search Examination 2016?

National Genius Search Examination® - 2016 (NGSE) is a scientifically devised assessment tool to locate genius among children. It is an innovative approach for accelerated learning, developed after 12 years of rigorous research and adaptability tests. The NGSE leads to the prestigious National Genius Awards. 

The NGSE focuses on assessment for learning. It uses 'Own the Ownership of Learning Concept' (OOL Concept) to develop questions. These Questions brings in the required interest among students to take up the ownership of learning. This approach ensures maximum learning in optimal time with deeper understanding and conceptual clarity. The multi tasked Enhanced MCQs (EMCQs) of NGSE improves rapid decision making skills in daily life. 

The NGSE offers two scores for regular test takers - National Percentile Score (NPS) for current year and National Benchmark Score (NBS), a derived cumulative score for three or more years.

Parents seeking study materials for NGSE should realize that conceptual clarity is the key for success in NGSE. It cannot be built in day or in a week. It requires consistent practice and tactful multitasking approach. If students wish to enhance their skill sets using a long term approach, SMARTEST™ (Scholastic Measurement Analysis & Recognition Test) of the respective classes are advised. We do not recommend any short-term readymade question sets for this purpose.
