Maharashtra State Council of Examinations, Pune conducts Scholarship Exam for std VIII.

There has been great awareness among parents, teachers and pupils about this examination. Each year the number of students appearing for the examination is increasing.

This examination differs from the routine school examination in many respects. Emphasis is laid on child’s ability to understand basic concepts and their application in various situations. Mere memorizing of various topics does not help a child in getting success in the scholarship examinations. This exam will help the students in their higher studies. One of the difficult faced by the children and parents  is the scarcity of good study material for this examination.

Keeping all this in mind we, at Avishkar, teach the students some important tricks to solve the problems in mathematics and Intelligent Test subjects so that they can solve question within time during exam. We provide the best compiled material for scholarship exam for students of Std VIII.
