NEST 2019 Result  - Merit List Preparation

The merit list will be prepared after the results of NEST 2019 is released. The merit list will contain the names of candidates who have qualified the entrance test and are eligible to attend the admission counselling procedure. The steps of preparation of the NEST 2019 merit list are given here.

Scoring System

  • While preparing the NEST result 2019 the scores for the general section and the best of three scores from Section II to V will be taken into consideration.

  • Since the merit list scores will be calculated on the marks obtained in the general section and in (best) three subject sections, the ‘total’ marks for NEST 2019 will be 180 

  • For Example: 30 + 50 x 3 = 180

‘Section–wise’ and ‘total’ cut–off marks

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

  • In case of each section, 20 percent of the average of the best 100 scores in that section will be considered as Section–wise Minimum Admissible Score (SMAS).

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

  • Candidate must score equal or more SMAS in the General section as well as in at least three subject sections. These sections will then be counted for merit list calculation. 

  • If a candidate secures SMAS in all four subject sections, then the best three subject scores will be counted. 

  • Candidates are also required to score equal to or above marks in Minimum Admissible Score (MAS), to get a merit rank. 

  • MAS for NEST 2019 will be 90 which is 50 percent of total marks which is 180.

NEST 2019 - Tie- Breaking Rules

  • In case of a tie between the scores of two or more candidates a tie breaker will be applied to determine the final score. The tie breaking rules applicable are as follows

  • If total score of two or more candidates is equal the candidate with higher score in the general section will be given preference.

  • In case the tie still persists, then the best scores in the subject section of the candidates would be compared. The student with the better score in any of the subject section would get considered in the list.

  • In case the tie still persists, the candidate would be given same provisional rank at the time of declaration of the result and the tie would be broken by comparing class 12th marks and date of birth during admission/counselling process.
