NEST 2017 Question Paper Pattern
NEST 2017 Question Type : The question paper will consist of 5 (five) sections of objective (MCQ) type questions. Section 1 is the general section and is of 30 marks. There will be no negative marking in the general section. Sections 2 through 5 are of 50 marks each and will contain subject specific questions from Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics. Candidates are permitted to attempt as many subject–sections as they wish. However, only the best three subject–scores along with the score in the general section will be counted for evaluation and merit list preparation. The questions are designed to test candidates’ subject comprehension and analytic ability. In the subject sections, for certain questions there will be negative marking for incorrect answers. Some questions may have one or more correct answers for which marks can only be earned by marking all correct answers and no wrong answer. For NEST question papers of last few years, refer to the NEST 2017 website. Language of the question paper will be English only.
NEST 2017 Answering Questions : The answers to each question are to be marked on an OMR ( Optical Mark Recognition ) sheet. Details of how to answer on OMR sheet will be given in the front page of the question paper and on the OMR sheet.
