My son in nest 2019 mark 41 and percentile 74.8530 in obc category and how can join in niser

Vishnupriya 17th Jul, 2019

Hi Sonu, 

The total number of seats in NISER, Bubhaneshwar, is only around 172. And there are thousands of candidates competing for this. I am sorry to say that getting a seat in NISER with 74.853 is quite impossible. Do not lose hope. You can ask to try next year again.
