Competitive Examinations for Class 9 with early preparation
The following is the list of competitive exam for Class 9:
 NSTSE: The National Level Science Talent Search Exam encourages students to reason critically while solving problems. NSTSE question papers are scientifically designed to test concepts underlying the curriculum. Students from classes 2 to 12 from recognised schools are eligible. The subjects and study matter are based on the curriculum prescribed by the CBSE board.
 NIMO: The EduHeal Foundation conducts the National Interactive Maths Olympiad (NIMO) which promises to make Math more fun. It aims to do this by introducing interactive activities like Olympiads, workshops and seminars.
 NBTO: The National Biotechnology Olympiad is creating awareness about Biotechnology and bringing in an element of challenge and competition among students. It is also inspiring the younger generation to enhance their knowledge about issues related to Biotechnology, and test their aptitude for future careers in the field.
 GeoGenius: Established by leading academicians, GeoGenius aims to popularize the understanding of Geography among school children. It also educates them about the planet and inculcates a deep love and respect towards the environment, which plays a major role in their progress.
 ASSET: Assessment of Scholastic Skills through Educational Testing is a scientifically designed, skillbased assessment test. Rather than testing through multiplechoice questioning, it focuses on measuring how well school students master fundamental concepts. The test also provides information on the strengths and weaknesses of both individual students and entire classes.
 Olympiads:
 Silverzone Olympiads: It is a competitive exam at school level conducted for classes I to XII in various subjects including Mathematics, English, French, General Knowledge, Informatics etc.
 Science Olympiad Foundation: There are several Olympiads organized by the Science Olympiad Foundation (SOF) such as IMO, NCO, NSO and ISO. These Olympiads are held annually and are considered very tricky for students.
 IJSO: IJSO is a competitive examination open to students of all countries in the world, primarily studying in secondary schools. All basic subjects of Science (Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics) are given roughly equal representation in the IJSO examination.
The Junior Science Olympiad program follows the following 5 stages:
 Stage I: National Standard Examination in Junior Science (NSEJS)
 Stage II: Indian National Junior Science Olympiad (INJSO)
 Stage III: Orientation cum Selection Camp (OCSC) in Junior Science
 Stage IV: Predeparture Training Camp (PDT) for IJSO
 Stage V: Participation in International Junior Science Olympiad (IJSO)
How to prepare for Class 9
Preparation Tips for Class 9
You need to know what to study, how to study, how to manage time,how to manage accuracy every question/exam and where to look for references for better exam result. Below is a list of subjectwise pointers for your preparation.
Mathematics
 The best way to learn it is by practicing the problems as much a possible. It is highly recommended that problems be practiced till good confidence is achieved.
 It is important that you spend more time on working out problems you’re weak at and practice it until you satisfied to achieve. Divide time for each unit at your comfort, depending on the total number of marks, and your level of proficiency in it.
 Maths is a practical subject. The best way to learn it is by practicing problems. Make sure you practice problem solving only after you’ve gained good confidence.
 During the exam read the question paper carefully,analyse it well and select the best questions to solve first. Attempt the sections that carry more weightage/marks first.
Biology
 Remember biological terms, practice diagrams and be thorough with different processes.
 Biology course content can be serious and may need multiple readings due to its theoretical nature.
 Using flash cards can be a good memory retention technique.
 This subject is strenuous on the memory as concepts are basically pure information. You can approach Biology by trying to visualize the functions of the described phenomena and trying to correlate them with analogies that you’re familiar with. Give special attention to the names and spellings of the many biological terminologies.
Physics
 Practice derivations at least 8 times and solve and practice questions on the basis of important derivations.
 Solve at least 8 sample question papers on the basis of the derivations you’ve learned. This will give you an idea about where you’re going wrong and how you could improve.
 Attempt as many conceptual questions on those derivations as you can. This will give you a better understanding of the subject.
 Look for new questions on similar context from previous year’s question papers, sample papers and other model test papers.
 Always time yourself while solving sample papers as it will help you better manage time during the exam.
