Prajna Bharath, a national programme for identifying aptitudes and talents of students between sixth to 12th standard, will be held across the country from January 8 to 18, 2020. It is being conducted by Vigyan Prasar, an autonomous institution under Union government, Atal Innovation Foundation, National Brain Research Centre, Life Foundation and Vibha Vani India (VVI) – a national consortium of nation building organisations (NBO).

According to the organisers, National Psychometric Aptitude Quest, which would be administered online would be available for free for students of government schools. “Private schools will have to pay ₹ 250 while individuals will have to pay ₹300,” said M. Annadurai, State Chief Coordinator, Tamil Nadu, Vibha Vani India. The test was developed under the guidance of 10 experts led by V.K. Saraswat, member, Niti Aayog.

Following the test, all participants will be given an analysed report, providing the students with details on aptitude, personality assessment and career guidance.

Four sets of questions will be provided, for which the students need not have any prior preparation. “Those who perform well in the test will get an opportunity to represent the country in national level competitions. The top 336 will receive a cash prize and free online counselling, including for teachers and parents," he said.
