NThe scholarship test is basically intended to bring about a holistic academic development for students. The test not only prepare the students intellectually but help them to develop their behavioural and spiritual attitudes towards the challenges in their life. It’s also rewarding for the students as they stand a chance to win scholarships on topping the charts at the National level.
The following are the main objectives of conducting the Sathyadeepam National Scholastic Achievement Test.
1. As a pre-preparation for the competitive exams
Practice makes you perfect. A pre exposure to competitive environment will help them to get enough practice for developing required skills at the school level itself.
2. To season and weather them for the challenges of life
Take them through the tough, transform them into the thorough bred. Prepare them for the odds of their day to day life.
3. To practice the power of thought through reasoning
The greatest power that man is endowed with, the power of thought. The test is a platform which facilitates conscious development of the thought power of an individual.
4. To weave them all into one fabric of universal brotherhood
In a world of disharmony this helps bind all of them with a single purpose. But the most critical is developing the purity of intent. The underlying oneness among the numerous differences.
5. To promote and popularize the sentiments of national integration
Integrate them by weaving them on one single fabric of unity. Let them feel themselves integrated to the whole.
6. To keep them hands on with current affairs
Be aware, in the know. You ultimately take all your decisions based on your knowledge base. The better the foundation the better the incisiveness of the decision.
7. To inculcate a positive attitude towards life and its challenges.
Positive attitude takes one a long way. It creates an internal strength to meet and master any difficult situation in life.
Be positive! Be there to bag fabulous scholarships!
