what are the minimum marks needed to clear the NEST exam ?

Zayed khan 15th May, 2020


The cutoff varies every year. If you are an unreserved candidate, a minimum rank of 500 will get you into CEBS or NISER in first round counselling. AIR 1000 for reserved categories.

There are high chances for you if you score around 50% in the NEST exam.

  • For each section, 20% of the average of the best 100 scores in that section will be considered as Section wise Minimum Admissible Score (SMAS).
  • It means if the average of the best 100 scores in Chemistry section will be 40 out of 50, then SMAS for this section will be 40 x 0.20 = 8 marks. This process is similar to other section also.
  • Candidates should secure equal to or more than particular SMAS in the General section & also in at least three subject sections. Then, these subject sections will be counted in merit list calculation. In case, candidate’s scores SMAS in all four subjects sections, then the best three subject scores will be counted.
  • In a case, candidates not score SMAS in the general section or at least three subject sections, then they will not be allotted any merit rank & will not be eligible for admission.

Hope this helps.
