Department of State Education, research & training (DSERT) conducts the first stage of NTSE.

National Talent Search Examination (NTSE) is conducted by National Council for Education Research and Training (NCERT), Government of India. The purpose of the exam is to identify outstanding students of 10th standard and help them get the best possible education in India. For this, NTSE scholars receive generous financial assistance from the government. Success in this examination is a great achievement.  Every year 1000 students from all over the country get selected as National Talent Scholars and receive the scholarship.

NTSE examinations test analytical and logical skills. A good understanding of the subject is needed and rote learning or memorization will not yield results.  In earlier years, there were very few selections from Mangalore in NTSE. Since CFAL began instilling an interest in math and science in Mangalore, this number has increased over the years and currently, CFAL is breaking all records in the region. CFAL is part of The Learning Centre (TLC) and is situated at Bejai-Kapikad Road, Mangalore.

TLC aims to promote a passion for Math and Science learning among students and has the best results in Mangalore in all STEM related examinations including JEE, NTSE, KYPY, Olympiads etc. The outstanding results of our students proves that given the right learning environment, children from the region can outperform their peers from the Tier 1 cities. While rote-learning and learning for the sake of marks characterizes many institutions in the region, passion for the subject is what TLC aims to attain. The outcome is deep understanding of the subject and excellence in math and science. The vision of TLC is to inculcate interest in basic sciences and to encourage research and innovation in the field of Math and Science.

TLC is located at Bejai-Kapikad Road, Mangalore. For further information, you can call the Program Coordinators at 9845737120, 9740939374 or 9901115108
