There are various Talent Search Examinations, Olympiads and Scholarship Examinations for School Children in India. Government and Private organizations conduct these examinations every year. NCERT, Science Olympiad Foundation (SOF), Unified Council, Educational Initiatives Pvt. Ltd., Eduheal Foundation, International Childrens Equity Fund, Silver Zone etc. are only some of the organizations conducting these types of exams.

While some of these exams provide the achievers with scholarships, some other exams award the high performers with cash prizes, gifts and other goodies. But all these examinations will help students gain more knowledge and will prepare them to attempt competitive examinations in the future. They are getting the training from a very young age itself. Most of the Olympiads and talent search exams start from Class I itself.

Here we would like to give our readers a list of Talent search exams, scholarship tests, and Olympiads that are conducted by various organizations in India. This list is compiled after a lot of researching and we have tried to provide the most accurate information. But please make sure to check and confirm with the organizers about all the details of the exams before registering or paying for any of them.

Some of the exams can be taken only through the kid’s schools and some of the organizers allow individual entry. The following list contains most of the Scholarship exams conducted in India.
