From 2023 onwards the SMAS score of the best three subject scores from four subjects will be considered for the merit list preparation for NEST 2023 (for both NISER and CEBS). It was different in NEST 2022, where the SMAS of all four subjects were considered for preparing the NISER merit list. It is also advised that candidates check NEST 2023 eligibility criteria before filling the NEST 2023 Application Form

The NEST 2023 exam will have four sections, four sections of objective (MCQ) type questions. Each section is of 50 marks each and will contain subject specific questions from Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics. The merit list for both the institutes is prepared using the best three scores out of the four sections and the section with the worst score is omitted. Thus attempting all sections will increase their chances of a better total score. It is in the interest of the candidate to attempt all sections. The total duration of the exam will be three hours and 30 minutes.
