hai thanks the answer o iisc b I do need about NEST how many students appear for Nest exam how is it different from Mains and advanced does preparing for mains help for Nest the total number of seats is said to around 200 Are there any other core research centres who admit +2 student

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 28th Oct, 2019
Hello,


The National Entrance Screening Test  (popularly known as NEST) is an annual college entrance examination in India, conducted for admission into the National Institute of Science Education and Research, Bhubaneswar (NISER) and the Center for Excellence in Basic Sciences (UM-DAE CEBS), Mumbai. These two institutes use NEST as a sole criterion for admission to their undergraduate programs.

As of 2018, the total intake of NISER and UM-DAE CBS is 200+2 students and 45+2 students respectively (where two seats in each college are reserved for students belonging to the state of Jammu and Kashmir).

The NEST question paper has five sections. The first section, which is compulsory for all candidates, includes general questions. The next four sections includes questions on (1) Biology, (2) Chemistry, (3) Mathematics and (4) Physics. Candidates may opt to answer any three of the four sections if they are willing to get admission in CBS, otherwise they have to answer from all the sections if they are willing to get in the merit list of NISER. All sections carry equal marks. The questions are aimed at testing the comprehension and analytic ability of the candidates. The questions are of objective type with four answers given for each question. There may only be one relatively correct answer for each question. Wrong answers are awarded negative marks .


Syllabus of jee mains and nest are to some extent same.The level of question asked in NEST involves thinking and some calculation so its one level tougher than particularly jee mains.
Though NEST can be considered a bit tougher than jee mains but JEE advance is a lot tougher than NEST so if you are preparing for JEE rigorously then you can perform well in NEST regardless of seats intake.
Just keep one thing in mind that for cracking NEST your knowledge concepts need to be very strong .


I hope this helps

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. 

All The Best

My merit rank is 151 and obc rank is 22 in NEST 2019, can i get into NISER (PHYSICS)?

Vishnupriya 23rd Jun, 2019
Hi Ankit,

Cutoff rank predicted for the year 2019 is, 

For NISER Bubaneshwar,

OBC - 280. 

Even in the merit list, you seem to have cleared the required rank. There is a high chance of getting into NISER, Bubaneshwar. 

For the stream of Physics, you can still hope for the same. Physics might be one of the first filling courses in NISER counselling, but still there is a possibility for you, as you have got a very good rank. 

The counselling is on 12th of July.

All The Best.
