NEST Cut Off 2021 - CEBS & NISER Qualifying Marks Check Here
NEST Cut Off 2021 - The conducting bodies, NISER and UM-DAE CEBS, will release the NEST 2021 Cut Off separately on their official website along with the announcement of the results. The NEST 2021 Cut Off is the minimum marks that candidates need to score in the NEST exam to be deemed as eligible. The conducting bodies will calculate the NEST cut off 2021 on the basis of section-marks and overall marks obtained by the candidates. Those who manage to score the marks equal to or more than the marks mentioned in the NEST 2021 cut off set by the conducting bodies will be allowed to continue with the next level of counselling process of NEST 2021. Candidates must keep in mind that the merit list for the admission will be prepared based on the Cut Off of NEST 2021 only. To know more about the previous years’ NEST Cut Off trends, details mentioned on the Cut Off list, how that NEST cut off 2021 will be calculated, candidates are suggested to read further.

NEST Merit List 2021
The conducting bodies will release the merit list of NEST 2021 which will mention the names of the selected candidates. The final ranking of candidates will be made based on the percentile scores calculated from the general section and best of three subjects. The selected candidates will, then, be required to attend the counselling procedure. In order to appear for the counselling, candidates will be required to register online on the conducting bodies’ respective official websites.
NEST 2021 Merit Calculation/Merit List Preparation
In order to get a position in the NEST merit list, candidates will be required to score equal to or above a total Minimum Admissible Percentile (MAP)
To get a rank in NISER’s merit list, candidates are required to score equal to or more than the SMAS in the general section as well as in all the four subject sections. Whereas, to get a rank in merit list that will be released by UM-DAE CEBS, candidates need to score equal to or more than the SMAS in the general section but in any of the three subject sections.
Candidates’ score for the general section along with three best scores from the remaining subject sections will be considered for preparation of the merit rank in the NEST merit list.
NEST Merit List 2021 - Tie-breaking procedure
Sometimes it happens that there is a tie between two candidates. In that case, the institutes will consider candidates who have scored higher in the general section.
If the tie persists, then the higher rank will be given to candidate/s who have scored higher in any of the subject sections.
After all this, If the tie still persists, the candidates will be provided with the same rank. However, it will be provisional till the time of the counselling, where the tie would be broken by comparing candidates’ class 12th marks.
If the tie still persists then the candidate who is younger at age younger at age will be given a higher rank in the NEST merit list.

Why people born in 2000 cannot appear in nest 2021
I am assuming that you belong to general/obc category.
You are not eligible for nest examination with your date of birth in 2000.
This is because,
As per eligibility criteria of nest examination , there is age limit according to which those who are from general/OBC category must be born either on or after 1st August , 2001.
In case if you belong to Sc or St or pwd category then with your date of birth in 2000 you will be eligible for NEST examination because for SC/ ST/ PwD category there's a relaxation of 5 years on age limit.
You can get detailed information about nest 2021 eligibility criteria by visiting our page, the link for the same page is provided below :-
what is the total mark for NEST 2021 exam and what is the score for each subject
