The NTS Web Page, launched in May - 2011, with a Public Opinion Poll feature to seek responses from various stakeholders proved to be a major success. The exercise elicited significant responses from citizens, both on the Opinion Poll as well as the Scheme's dedicated web page on popular social networking site Facebook, wherein about 26% of the respondents favoured the proposed institution of NTS.

A detailed report on the findings has been subsequently prepared by the D/o Science and Technology research team. It is divided into two major sections

  • Responder profile and Detailed response on the current examination system and the proposed NTS received through the Opinion Poll and
  • Analysis of the responses and views received through the National Test Scheme Page of the Facebook

These findings can be accessed through the below links:
