Candidates can should know the NEST scoring system for calculation of their scores. The section wise marking scheme and scoring system is mentioned below for the reference of candidates.
Some of the important guidelines for calculation of NEST 2017 section wise scores and overall cutoff:
Example: Suppose the SMAS for the General section and all subject sections is 8 for general category candidates. If a certain general category candidate scores 40 out of 50 in general section, 40/50 in Physics, 35/50 in Chemistry, 2/50 in Maths and 5/50 in Biology; then his/her total score is 40+40+35+2+5=142, which is more than the MAS, i.e. 100. But as the candidate has not scored atleast 8 (SMAS) in the 3 subject sections, he/she will not get any merit rank.
On the contrary, if a candidate scores 12/50 in general section, 20/50 in Physics, 11/50 in Chemistry, 20/50 in Maths and 10/50 in Biology; then his/her total score is 12+20+11+20=63. The worst score of 10/50 here would be ignored. The total of 63 is less than MAS (100). So, the respective candidate would not get any merit rank, inspite of the fact that he/she has scored SMAS in all the sections.
Candidates can check the rank allotment criteria for NEST 2017 mentioned below:
For example, marks of following 5 students should be considered in this regard:
In the given example, Student A gets Rank 1 as his total is more than other students. NOTE that A has scored more than SMAS in all subjects and hence, best 3 subject scores are to be considered. The other 4 students have equal totals.
Amongst them, student B has better score in the general section than the others and thus, he gets Rank 2. Student C has scored 32 in Chemistry, whereas D and E have scored their highest as 30 in Biology and Physics respectively. Hence, C gets 3rd Rank. Degeneracy for D and E is not broken and both the students get the same provisional rank.
There were 2 separate sets of question paper - Set A & Set B. Both the question papers were divided into 5 sections each. Section 1 was General Section while Section 2 to Section 5 were for specific subjects, i.e., Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics.
All the questions were in Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) format and candidates had to select the correct option out of the four options provided. The question papers and answer keys for NEST 2017 would be provided by exam conducting authority for reference.
Candidates and experts can send their queries or challenge any answer indicated in the official answer key by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org till June 5, 2017. The queries/challenges send by the candidates or teachers must be accompanied with a valid reference.
For any queries, the candidates are required to contact through postal mail at
