How will the NEST Cut Off 2023 be Calculated?

The students must score marks equal or above the NEST cut-off to pass both the section as well as the examination and qualify for further rounds of admission. The cut off marks for NEST exam is calculated in the following ways -

NEST 2023 Cutoff - Section Wise Minimum Admissible Score

  • The direct sum of the total score in the general section and the best three scores in the subject section will be the total score of a candidate.

  • Section Wise Minimum Admissible Score or Section Wise NISER cutoff marks for each section is 20 percent of the average of the best 100 scores in that section.

  • For example, if the average of the best 100 scores in Physics section is 40 out of 50, then the SMAS for Physics section would be 40*0.20 = 8 marks.

  • Section wise cut-off marks of NEST 2023 will be different for different numerical values.

  • Candidates must score equal or more SMAS in the General section as well as three subject sections out of five. These sections will then be counted for merit list calculation through

    NEST exam marks vs rank.

  • NEST 2023 Section Wise Minimum Admissible Score for SC/ ST candidates will be 50% of the general category, whereas SMAS for OBC candidates will be 90% of the general candidates.

Questions related to NEST

Have a question related to NEST ?

No, qualifying NEST exam won't directly lead you to pursue MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery). NEST serves a different purpose.

The National Entrance Screening Test is for admission to five-year integrated M.Sc. programs at specific universities like National Institute of Science Education and Research (NISER) and Center for Excellence in Basic Sciences (UM-DAE CEBS). It focuses on Science subjects (Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Biology).

To pursue MBBS, you need to qualify for a separate medical entrance exam like the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET). NEET is the primary gateway for admission to undergraduate medical programs in India.

Question : Comprehension:
Read the given passage and answer the questions that follow.
The Black Drongo also known as the King Crow, is a small Asian bird of the drongo family. Previously, it was seen as a subspecies of the African Fork-tailed Drongo but is now recognized as a full species. It is a common resident breeder in much of tropical southern Asia from southwest Iran through India and Sri Lanka to southern China and Indonesia. It is a wholly black bird with a distinctive forked tail and measures 28 cm in length.
Feeding on insects, it is commonly found in open agricultural areas and light forest areas throughout its range, perching conspicuously on a bare perch or along power or telephone lines.
The species is famous for its aggressive behaviour towards much larger birds, such as crows, and never hesitates to dive-bomb any birds of prey that invade its territory. Smaller birds often nest in the well-guarded vicinity of a nesting Black Drongo
The Black Drongo has been introduced to some Pacific islands, where it has thrived and become abundant to the point of threatening and causing the extinction of native and endemic bird species there.
Drongos fly with strong flaps of the wing and are capable of fast manoeuvres that enable them to capture flying insects. With short legs, they sit upright on thorny bushes, bare perches or electricity wires. They may also perch on grazing animals.
The Black Drongo is found predominantly in open country and usually perches and hunts close to the ground. They are mostly aerial predators of insects but also glean from the ground or off vegetation.
They are found as summer visitors to northeastern Afghanistan and northern Pakistan but are mainly resident south from the Indus Valley up to Bangladesh and into India and Sri Lanka.
Question:
Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage?

Option 1: The drongo looks exactly like a crow.

Option 2: Smaller birds are protected by the drongo.

Option 3: This bird is a native of tropical countries in south-Asia.

Option 4: The drongo is a small perching bird.

Correct Answer: The drongo looks exactly like a crow.


Solution : The first option is the correct choice.

The statement "the drongo looks exactly like a crow" is not true, according to the passage.

The passage describes the Black Drongo as a wholly black bird with a distinctive forked tail, measuring 28 cm in length. While it mentions that the Black Drongo is sometimes known as the King Crow, this is likely due to its aggressive behaviour towards larger birds, such as crows, and not because it looks exactly like a crow.

They are found as summer visitors to northeastern Afghanistan and northern Pakistan but are mainly resident south from the Indus Valley up to Bangladesh and into India and Sri Lanka.
Question:
What was the impact of trying to introduce the species to the Pacific islands?

Option 1: They decreased in numbers drastically.

Option 2: They returned to the lands of their origin.

Option 3: They proved to be a threat to the local birds.

Option 4: They did not survive in the changed climate conditions.

Correct Answer: They proved to be a threat to the local birds.


Solution : The third option is the correct choice.

The impact of introducing the Black Drongo species to some Pacific islands was that they thrived and became abundant to the point of threatening and causing the extinction of native and endemic bird species there.

The passage states that the Black Drongo has been introduced to these islands, and as a result of its successful establishment and proliferation, it poses a threat to the local bird species.

Previously, it was seen as a subspecies of the African Fork-tailed Drongo but is now recognised as a full species.

Question:
Which one of the following statements made about the Drongo in the passage will NOT help us to identify the bird?
 

Option 1: It is completely black.

Option 2: It is recognised as a full species.

Option 3: It hunts close to the ground.

Option 4: It has a forked tail.

Correct Answer: It is recognised as a full species.


Solution : The second option is the correct choice.

The statement "It is recognised as a full species" will not help us identify the bird.

The reason is that recognising the Black Drongo as a full species provides information about its taxonomic classification. it does not provide distinctive visual or behavioural characteristics that would aid in the identification of the bird. Identifying a bird typically involves features such as physical appearance, colouration, size, behaviour, or other specific traits.

Correct Answer: Complicated situation.


Solution : The correct choice is the third option.

The idiom a mare's nest typically refers to a situation or discovery that initially appears promising or exciting but ultimately turns out to be illusory, non-existent, or more complicated than originally thought. It signifies a false or misleading discovery that appears significant but is, in reality, meaningless or without substance.
