Section Wise & Total Cut-Off Marks:

NEST Cut-Off 2023 Marks (total & section-wise) will be determined by the following process:

Total Score:

  • In the general section, the total score of each student will be the direct sum of their score & their best three scores in the subject sections.

Section-Wise Minimum Admissible Score (SMAS)

  • For each section, 20% of the average of the 100 best scores in this section will be considered the minimum eligible average score (SMAS).
  • This means that if the average of the 100 best results in chemistry is 40 out of 50, then SMAS for this section will be 40 x 0.20 = 8 points. This process is similar to the other section as well.
  • Applicants must obtain a GMSMAS equal to or greater than a particular SMAS in the General section and at least three thematic sections. Then, these topics sections will be counted in calculating the list of merits. If the candidate obtains a SMAS score in the four sections, the three top scores will be counted.
  • In one case, if candidates do not reach SMAS in the general section or at least three sections, they will not receive merit and will not be eligible for admission.

Minimum Admissible Score (MAS)

  • To get a merit rank, candidates should score equal to or above a total Minimum Admissible Score (MAS).
  • Candidates who secure less than 90 (MAS) in total will not be allotted any merit rank & will not be eligible for admission, even after they will secure SMAS in all sections.
  • Candidates who score equal to or more than MAS but not secure SMAS in the general section or at least three subject sections will be allotted any merit rank. To get a merit rank, it is compulsory to fulfil both MAS & SMAS conditions.
