School tests, including board exams, tend to be superficial, testing what children have memorised. But the important skills like the ability to think independently and reason logically which is so critical in today’s world are often not emphasised in school tests. Such competitive exams at school level have interesting questions that require thinking, not simply recall. These competitive exams provide detailed skill-wise feedback highlighting strengths and weaknesses and provide a benchmark of the student’s performance with peers all over the country.

So for all such competitions THE TALENTHON guides well, motivates well and also trains well the students to prepare for.

Main motive behind conducting this is very clear that Gujarat has tremendous potential and they must get right direction to do well and recognise amongst all students from all over India.
