The test will be a 100 question, I hour Objective type test, where the questions are asked from the prescribed syllabus, current academic curriculum and General Knowledge.

Two top scoring students from each class will be declared the Sastra Prathibhas for that year and will receive the Sastra Prathibha Awards during the Annual science Gala.
