Those willing to apply for the NEST entrance test should have passed the class 12th examination with a regular science stream. The candidate must have passed the final qualifying exam in 2020 or 2021 or must be appearing for the same in 2023. Candidates in the General/ OBC category must have secured at least 60% aggregate. Candidates belonging to the SC/ ST/ PwD category must have secured 55% in the qualifying exam.
NISER and CEBS offer reservations to the reserved category applicants. NISER and CEBS reserve a certain percentage of seats for candidates of SC/ ST, OBC-NCL, PwD and Supernumerary Quota seats for candidates from Jammu and Kashmir.
The number of seats available in NISER and CBS for admission in the year 2023 can be seen in the following table:
|PD (part of other categories)||5% of seats in each category||5% of seats in each category|
If the required number of seats in the OBC-NCL category remains unfilled, they will be assigned to General category candidates. On the other hand, vacant seats in the SC and ST categories will not be filled by candidates from other categories. Because the seat reservation for PD candidates is horizontal, unfilled seats will be assigned to candidates from the respective categories. For example, unfilled SC (PD) seats will be assigned to candidates from the SC category, and so on.
All selected candidates, irrespective of any category, must get important documents at admission. Despite clearing the NEST 2023, their admission will be denied if they do not provide original documents during the admissions and counselling process.
