NEST 2019 Results Information

According to the official notification, the NEST 2019 Results will be out on June 18, 2019. Merit lists for two participating institutes NISER and CEBS will be prepared separately.

On the basis of marks obtained in the exam, SMAS (‘Section–wise’ Minimum Admissible Score) and MAS (Minimum Admissible Percentile) will be calculated and based on them, a merit list will be prepared. 

NEST Results 2019 - Merit List Preparation Criteria

The NEST examination will be conducted in two shifts and different sets of question papers will be used for each session. So, the percentile score will be calculated on the basis of the relative performance of all the candidates in the respective session and the NEST 2019 Results will be declared.

The highest percentile is 100. For every session based on all the test-takers score, percentile will be calculated. During the preparation of merit list, the score for the general section would be considered along with three best scores from the remaining subject sections.

In other words, the worst score among sections 2 through 5 would be omitted while preparing the merit list. Thus, the ‘total’ marks for NEST 2019 becomes 180 (30 + 50 x 3= 180).

A total score of each candidate will be the sum of his/her score in the general section and his/her best of three scores among the subject sections.

SMAS Calculation

  • 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).
  • SMAS in general section is mandatory for generating merit list for NISER and CEBS. The admission criteria for NISER and CEBS is little different and is as listed below:
    • For NISER: SMAS in all four subject sections is mandatory, in addition to the general section.
    • For CEBS: SMAS in any three subject sections is mandatory, in addition to the general section.
  • Relaxation of SMAS for OBC: SMAS for OBC students would be 90% of respective SMAS for general category students.
  • Relaxation of SMAS for SC/ST/PWD: SMAS for SC/ST/PWD students would be 50% of respective SMAS for general category students.

 Points To Remember

  • Candidates scoring less than the above MAP in total (general section + his/her three best-scored subjects) would not be allotted any merit rank. They would not be deemed eligible for admission at either NISER or CEBS, even if they secure SMAS in all sections.

  • The NEST committee reserves the right to relax any of the defined cut-offs in certain circumstances. 

  • Based on the attendance of the students present both at NISER and CEBS, a modified merit list will be prepared. 

  • This modified merit list and not the original merit list is the basis for the admission to NISER and UM-DAE CEBS.
