SCERT Chandigarh had issued the Chandigarh NTSE Admit Card 2019 two weeks ago. Representative of the head of the concerned schools had to collect them between October 21 to 25, 2019 from the State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT), Sector 32 C, UT Chandigarh, and in turn, provide them to students.
The council had provided an outline of the admission card in the application form itself that was available for download at siechd.nic.in. Students had to send the same along with the form. The document, filled with exam details and centre details, were issued to the applicants thereafter in offline mode.
Visually handicapped students shall get extra time. However other candidates in the PH category shall not. Moreover, VH candidates will get either scribe or braille as per requirement.
There is a high possibility for CG NTSE answer key 2019 to be available after the exam. Whereas official answers or solutions are unlikely, they are expected from individual teachers and educators who have been guiding students over the session. To check answer keys, students can search the same online after exam gets over.
Chandigarh NTSE stage 1 result will be declared either the month of January or February 2020. Thereafter NCERT will conduct NTSE stage 2 exam on May 10, 2020 in which students of all states shall compete. Through this scheme, a total of 2000 scholarships will be distributed all over India.
