The admit cards for the National Entrance Screening Test (NEST 2023) results will be declared today, July 10. Candidates will need their application number and password to access their NEST 2023 result from the official website – nestexam.in.
This year, the NEST merit list will be generated this year based on candidates’ performance in the best three of the four subjects, and this will apply to both NISER and CEBS institutes. In NEST 2022, scores of all four subjects were considered for preparing the NISER merit list.
“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). A candidate can choose any three subjects or all four subjects in the test. It was different in NEST2022, where the SMAS of all four subjects were considered for preparing the NISER merit list,” reads the official notice
