All students aspiring to participate in the international Olympiads must appear in the first stage examination, the National Standard Examination (NSE) in the respective subject. (Students who have represented India in previous international Olympiads are eligible for exemption from the first stage on application. See the brochure for details.)
Enrollment for NSE:
Find out from the principal and/or the head of department whether your school/college is a registered centre. If so, enrol your name by paying the required fee. Your school/college will give you all necessary instructions pertaining to NSEs.
If your school/college is not a registered centre, visit the IAPT website: www.iapt.org.in. This website displays details of the centres which were registered last year. This may be of help to you in locating the centre nearest to you and in enrolling your name at the centre by paying the required fee.
Fee: Rs. 100/- per student per subject.
Fee is to be paid to the centre in-charge of the centre where you have enrolled your name. No direct remittance to IAPT is permissible.
No TA/ DA is admissible for NSE (Stage I Examination).
