However it is highly recommended that students appear in all three test, it will increase chances of getting admission because NUST consider test with highest marks for merit calculation. NUST test is very competitive and also NUST give major importance to its test while calculating merit list. NUST (NET) test do not have negative marking so students can try luck to get maximum score in test. Each question will add (+1) marks in total however wrong answers and skipped questions will marked as (0).  NUST (NET) test will have 200 Marks in total.

NUST Merit Calculation for Undergraduate Admissions:

 

NUSt entry test 75%
HSSC/FSC/A level/DAE/Fscpart-I 15%
Matric/ O level 10 %

 

How to calculate nust AGGREGATE:

 

NUST University gives major importance to its NET test while calculating merit for undergraduate admission.

 

Example:

 

If a students scored following marks in FSC, Matic and NET test than He / she can calculate aggregate as follow;

 

Marks obtained in NET Test: 135                NET Total Marks: 200

Marks Obtained in HSSS or A levels: 870   Total HSSC Marks: 1100

Marks obtained in Matric or O level: 920  Total Matric Marks: 1100

 

 

NUST Consider 75% NET test marks, so

 

NUST Entry Test Aggregate = Marks obtained in NUST test/NET Total marks x 75

= 135/200 x 75

NUST Entry Test Aggregate= 50.625

 

 

NUST Consider 15% HSSC marks, so

 

HSSC/A level Aggregate= Marks obtained in HSSC or A level/ Total HSSC marks x 15

                                           = 870/1100 x 15

HSSC/A level Aggregate= 11.8636

 

NUST consider 10% Matric marks

 

Matric Aggregate= marks obtained in Matric/Total matric marks x 10

                                = 920/1100 x 10

Matric Aggregate= 8.3636

 

 

 

How to Calculate merit position

 

Total Aggregate/ Merit = NET aggregate + HSSC aggregate + Matric aggregate

 =50.62 + 11.8636 + 8.3636

Total Aggregate/ Merit=70.8522
