Dakshana Pre-Scholarship Tests (PST 01, PST 02, PST 03) are rescheduled on July 16,17,18 (10AM-1PM) respectively. This is the last chance if you have missed the earlier PSTs or would like to reappear to improve your score.

Selection of scholars for the Dakshana Two-year and One-year JEE/NEET Coaching Scholarship Program will be done through the NDST (Navodaya Dakshana Selection Test) 2021 and JDST (Joint Dakshana Selection Test) 2021, respectively.

Due to the ongoing pandemic across India, the Dakshana Scholarship Test have been postponed.
You will be notified of the new date at least 15 days before the test.

Revised Selection Process for the Invited NDST/JDST 2021 Applicants:

Considering the special circumstances, we are changing the selection process this year. Due to schools being closed, we are unable to hold the tests physically at the test centres as decided earlier. The revised selection process will include the following steps:

Step 1: Mock Tests (online) to familiarise students to the test interface and provide them practice tests.

Step 2: Pre-Scholarship Tests (online) to qualify to be invited for the NDST/JDST 2021.

Step 3: NDST/JDST 2021 (at Test Centres) to qualify for the Dakshana Scholarship.

All online tests will be conducted through the Dakshana Scholarship Test Android Mobile App. Download the mobile app from google playstore. Link to download the app: tinyurl.com/dakshanascholarshiptest. The Mock test/Pre-Scholarship test will be available in the scheduled date.

Note: Pre-Scholarship tests are timed, and you can take them only ONCE. The 03 tests will be based on the syllabus (as specified in the notification document) and can only be taken on the Dakshana Scholarship Test Android Mobile App, from the comfort of your home. The best scores of two of these three tests will be considered for you to be invited to the NDST/JDST 2021.
Students who do not appear for minimum 2 pre-scholarship tests will be disqualified from the selection process for the Dakshana Scholarship.
