NEST 2017 Scoring System
The result will be out today and students who appeared for the exam should understand the scoring system which will be taken into account to prepare the merit list.
NEST exam consists of five sections. Section one is general and compulsory for all candidates. Sections 2 to 5 are subject sections (Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics). Students were allowed to attempt any number of subject sections, however only the marks scored in best three sections would be considered during merit list preparation. This, essentially, means that the section with the least score will be discarded at the time of merit list preparation and only the best three scores would be added.
