Many cherish for what the Almighty has given them and some are aggrieved for not having given enough.

National Talent Search Examination briefly known as NTSE is an examination to search talents in the country and provide them firm platform to turn these talents into the gems contributing towards the common good of mankind. Talent unseen is the talent wasted and NTSE plays a vital role in making the talents visible and to guide them on the right path and harvest and enjoy the benefits of these talents.
