How well an Individual solves the problem, determines his / her success and growth rate. Any organization can be IBM, Google or Facebook if it has people who are great problem solvers. NCAT is designed to sensitize the students to the domain of creative thinking and motivate them to read, learn and practice the same. This Olympiad is designed to assess a child's creative abilities and his/her achievement motivation.
The primary objectives of this test are: to sensitize the student, to appeal to his / her competitive spirit and to make him / her an achiever. NCAT may throw up a set of students who donâ€™t seem to be the front - runners in the curricular subjects as creative geniuses and motivate them to sharpen their talent. A research by Edward De Beno and David Mc Clleland states that both creativity and achievement motivation can be significantly enhanced by appropriate interventions.
20 best performers amongst all disciplines were selected from the Final Year B.Tech Batch 2016 and they tested their skills on a National Platform. The final result of the first round will be declared by March 25th 2016 and all the selected students will undergo the final round in the month of June.
