NEST previous year question papers
The National Entrance Screening Test or NEST is a compulsory online/computer-based test for admission to the five-year Integrated MSc program in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics, at the National Institute of Science Education and Research (NISER), Bhubaneswar, and the University of Mumbai – Department of Atomic Energy Centre for Excellence in Basic Sciences (UM–DAE CEBS), Mumbai.
Integrated MSc program at NISER, Bhubaneswar & UM-DAE CEBS, Mumbai:
Both NISER and UM-DAE CEBS are autonomous institutions established by the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), Government of India, in 2007. NISER is an off-campus center of Homi Bhabha National Institute (HBNI) and all academic programs of NISER are affiliated with HBNI. Although CEBS is a DAE institution, it is physically located in the Kalina campus of the University of Mumbai and the degrees to students are awarded by Mumbai University. These institutes were started with the mandate to provide high-quality teaching in basic sciences by a faculty of distinguished scientists embedded in a vibrant research environment and to create a national pool of scientists ready to take up research challenges in the frontiers of basic and applied sciences. The Integrated MSc program at these institutes follows a semester-based course structure and continuous assessment within a flexible and innovative academic curriculum, exposing the students to research early in the program. The placements of the graduated students from NISER and CEBS provide testimony of the success of this initiative. NISER and CEBS are residential institutes equipped with state-of-the-art teaching and research laboratories, modern computational facilities, computer centers, and excellent libraries. All the students are accommodated in hostels on campus and are provided with an environment conducive to their success in classroom learning and research.
