Bengaluru: Who's the new President of Tanzania? What is Chapala? With which country has Nepal signed an MoU to ease the fuel crisis? No, these are not questions from the GK section of a bank exam or the UPSC exam. Instead, these are part of the "question bank" that the Karnataka ICSE Schools Association (KISA) has released for Class 1 students to help them prepare for the Talent Search Examination, 2016 - 2017 whose first phase was held on 1 September and the second phase will be held on 9 September. This was pointed out on Twitter by Sahana Rao, the mother of one of these Standard I kids.
