Despite, the ten days delay, candidates would still have ample time to download their admit card since the exam is scheduled in May.
NEST exam is conducted for admission to National Institute of Science Education and Research (NISER) Bhubaneswar and University of Mumbai - Department of Atomic Energy Centre for Excellence in Basic Sciences (UM-DAE CEBS), Mumbai. Both the institutes were established by Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), Government of India in 2007. NISER is an off-campus centre of Homi Bhabha National Institute (HBNI) and all academic programmes offered by NISER are affiliated to HBNI.
Admission to NISER and DAE CEBS also opens up pathways to Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) training school. Candidates at both these institutes, who secure grades above a certain threshold are eligible for direct interview at BARC.
What appeals to students about these institutes is that these are one of the few institutes in India which focus on scientific research and allow students to navigate a career in the domain.
