How much you need to score in Nust Engineering entry test? (Estimates only, actual merit positions are determined on the basis of criteria explained below.)

Selection Procedure

Final Merit numbers are determined on the basis of an aggregate score based on the following criteria.

 
 
NUST Enterence Test
75%
FSc/A Level/equivalent or FSc Part-I
15%
Matric/O Level*
10%
Source: NUST Prospectus 2014 *O/A Level candidates who are in A Level (final year) will be assigned 25% weighting to their O Level equivalence marks as per equivalence certificate issued by IBCC.

Its Not difficult due to the MCQs, about half of the mcqs are very easy, the remaining being logical and asked from the more unconventional topics. Very few, not more then 20 involve lengthy workings.

Why NUST Entry Test is Difficult?

Let's shed some light on why people consider NUST entry test to be difficult and uncover this myth for you.

  • The test encompasses the whole of what you have studied up till now. There is no choice like you had in Fsc.
  • It is of Three hours duration which means you have to keep your full concentration for three whole hours. (Fsc paper is also of three hours and most of it involves recalling what you learned earlier but here, it involves real thinking.)
  • The test requires you to recall matter from all three subjects whereas previously you had been taking exam of one subject at a time in Fsc. In simple words it asks you to think over a much larger area.
  • After two hours or so your brain gets exhausted and it creates a very bad temptation of recklessly shading the choices i.e tukka laga do since it is much easier then thinking.

Should I Join Coaching Center or Academy for Nust Entry Test Preparation?

Let's first discuss a major dilemma ringing in your minds, should I join any academy or center for preparation? jaon k na jaon?

Let me give you the answer straight away: you are much better off on your own even and better if you have a loyal friend by your side. Let's see Why?

Shrewd Techniques

Their is a myth that these centers will teach you certain 'shrewd techniques' that will give you a great edge above others in the test. Okay fine, you could use them in 10 or so mcqs at max, baki 190 kon karega? (they are mostly related to maths).

Should you spend that much amount of money and time just to learn a few techniques when their is no guarantee that you will be using them in test?

Past Papers and Other Notes

Another thing which intrigues the students about centers is that they provide past papers and other stuff to practice mcqs. As far as the past papers are concerned, what they have is merely a reconstruction of questions which they heard from ex-students. There are books in the market which provide good mcq practice or dil ko tassali dene k lie kisi dost se center k notes ly k dekh lena. One mcq book + your textbooks + some brain and determination are enough for you to prepare.

DO THEY REALLY HAVE GOOD TEACHERS?

Okay, they may have good and experienced teachers at their centers but precisely what they "teach" is the same that you have studied earlier in Fsc. Now I don't think you need a teacher to help you go through the same stuff again.

How are you doing your ECAT preparation ?

See results

How Much Time you Need to Prepare?

It is recommended that you start your preparations after giving your 2nd year exams, because concentrating on two things in one time will merely divert your efforts. It is usually conducted in the first week of July so you will easily get more then a month to prepare which is enough, considering that you have already put some effort in F.Sc.

If you have carefully studied your F.sc. syllabus, it wont take much time to revise it once again and work out on MCQ practice.

If you feel that you have good grasp over whole syllabus, 80% of your preparation is already done.

What to Study

Now we come to the tricky bit – what to study? and exactly how to study?

Tackling MCQs

This is the point of concern for many intermediate students but it is just because MCQs are something new for them, other then that, its no big deal. Few days of practice on MCQs will make you quite comfortable with them. Find some good ECAT book or uspe haat saaf kerna shuru krdo (see the resources section below for recommended textbooks).

  • You should study in a continues session of three hours without break so that by the time you face the test your mind must have enough stamina to think it through till the end. This is very important like I mentioned earlier that when our mind gets exhausted we resort to reckless shading, this is the only way to avoid it. Otherwise you will be making silly mistakes in later part of the test.

Avoid reckless shading at all costs.
Avoid reckless shading at all costs.

Do Not hesitate to take some eatables to the examination hall. (A can of Red Bull can make a huge difference.)

Mathematics

This is a major part of the test and also the most difficult part so maths is the subject on which you should spend most of your time.

Mostly MCQs are set from the more unconventional topics namely:

  • Permutations and Combinations
  • Probability
  • Sigma and Summation notation
  • Arithmetic and Geometric Progression
  • Limits, Line Graphs
  • Conic Sections

Usually 2-3 MCQs are likely to come from each of these topics which when combined, can form a major part of maths portion. So make sure you have prepared them well.

You wont find any lengthy integration or differentiation so A-Level guys need not to worry about 'rattifying' all those formulas in intermediate, you can however learn formulas and equations of Conic Sections chapter if you have time.

How are you doing your MCAT preparations?

See results

Biology

This is a major part of the medical test just like maths in engineering test, the only difference being that you can't take any chance here as the merit is quite high.

I have already mentioned that most of the MCQs in NET are easy, so is the case with Biology where around 70 out of 80 mcqs are usually straight forward, that way its merely a test of your determination, not the muscle of your brain.

All topics are equally important so their is no option left other then to absorb whole of the Fsc book.

Physics

Revise your 1st year syllabus, read the textbook thoroughly at least once and you are absolutely fine. Their are no lengthy numericals, only simple ones but you have to be quick in solving them.

A Level guys should also cover those topics which are not in their course:

  • Electronics
  • Physics of Solids
  • Fluid Dynamics

Though, they have a low probability of coming in test.

Chemistry

It is considered the most easiest part of the engineering test, only a flashback of intermediate course will suffice for it whether Fsc or A Levels.

For medical test, organic chemistry is more important.

English

You can expect one critical reading passage, a few difficult synonyms and antonyms and 2-3 analogies. If you are not confident about your English, this is not the the time to worry about it, invest your time on other subjects rather then improving English.

What if you don't Succeed in the Test?

God has a better plan for you.

Which Books can I use to Prepare for Nust Entry test?

Recommended textbooks for ECAT and MCAT preparation.
Recommended textbooks for ECAT and MCAT preparation.

The best resource at hand is obviously your textbook, make sure you read it carefully at least once, particularly physics textbook.

Among the many ECAT books that are available in the market, one published by Doger Brothers is the best. It covers the entire material you need to revise in concise form as well as offers some tough MCQ practice.

  • Try to attempt at least 100 MCQs from this book in one sitting, this will greatly enhance your concentrating power which will be tested to the fullest when you will be required to attempt 200 of them in one sitting.

Next if you live in Karachi you can purchase sample papers from IBA Grads coaching centers. Else, as a last resort measure find a friend who is enrolled in some test preparation center and loan the stuff from him.

Some Hindsight about GIKI Entry Test

Okay this is albeit unrelated to the Nust Entry Test but I believe, a few of you might also be interested in GIKI Entry Test.

Each year around 5,500 students appear in the GIKI Entry Test, actually way less then that of NUST so competition is considerably less then Nust. You stand a much better chance of being selectd in GIKI rather then at Nust because GIKI gives offer letters to first 1100 students on merit list that means roughly one in every five students who gives the test is selected. Around one third the students usually the top 250 are awarded financial assistance in the form of interest free loans.

MCQs in GIKI entry test are more difficult and conceptual as compared to Nust. You can expect some tricky numericals and fairly difficult theory as well as some lengthy calculation in maths.

Now moving towards the test, 80 MCQs in total:

  • 30 Maths
  • 30 Physics
  • 20 English

Here the english portion is fairly tough but masla ni he kiunke even if you strike 45 out of 80 mcqs correct you will be easily selected. Watch out for the negative marking though!

It will be highly appreciated if some of you return back and share your experiences about NET with us.

      Use your A level books first.

      Their are a few remaining chapters in physics and maths you will need to cover from fsc books. (I have mentioned them in article, will however be editing the same in order to make it more prominent because mostly people are asking this question.)

      A lot of things are discussed in quite detail above, do read them.

      Hey, I'm an Alevel student. My Alevel result is ABB. I was wondering if you could help me, can you recommend me books to get started for my NET preparations for mechanical engineering? I'm on a gap year hence i haven't touched my Alevels books for like 4-5 months. A friend of mine lend me her physics and chemistry punjab board books which she used to prepare for medical as well as test series preparation books of kips for physics and chemistry. However this other friend of mine says i should use federal board books, so can you help me? What books should i prepare from and do i prepare entirely from fsc or should i use my Alevel books aswell?

      Haven't got much idea about Edexcel. Get hold of an ECAT book however to get yourself refreshed on MCQs.

      Need not to worry. A few 'odd' FSC topics won't make much difference. Focus more on maths though.

      i am an o / a level student and have just completed my AS. My question is when should I start my entry test preparation and from which books or notes or academy should i study from. i am really tensed about the entry test because every one says that all of the entry test syllabus comes from FSC syllabus. To what extent is this true? I got 9 A*s and an A in O levels and when i got my equivalence my percentage was 89%. What should i score in the NET to confirm my admission in NUST engineering? I would be really thankful to you for answering my questions.

      StormsHalted 2 years ago from Karachi, Pakistan

      Based on my experience with engineering I can confidently say that It is 80% related to A levels ....... you will do with physics and chemistry just by revising your A-level book and that is the best option looking at the paucity of time.

      Cover 2 chapters in 1 day that will make about 44 in 22 days this will encompass your physics and maths.

      Chemistry just 1 or 2 days and that's enough.

      keep last 2 days to recap all the the stuff.

      The Big people setting the test are aware that students from many different boards are going to appear in the test and not just Fsc students .... so they set the questions accordingly.

      @Farooq ... you shouldn't expect mcat book's mcq to come in test. They are just meant to brush yourself up before the test.

      Dear Hassan,

      Even if you don't do well in net 2 you still have net 3 at hand .... so the game doesn't end at net 2 ..... by the time you have faced net 2 you will know more about nust entry test then I can tell you here.

      As far as the preparation is concerned you should have a quick glance over all of the first year physics formulas....no need to worry about fsc stuff as most of the "extra stuff" in fsc is usually not tested in net and even if it comes it is expected to test the most basic concepts not take you to the "end of the line". 4 topics in physics are extra in fsc if taken as a percentage of whole syllabus not more then 5 mcqs will be set from them.

      In maths you must look at fsc stuff. topics which I have stated in maths section should be revised.

      What you have studied in a levels is more then enough apart from some weird topics like limits and conic sections.

      No need to be afraid ....... nearly all of the students face it for the first time ...... and I guess you will also avail a second chance in NET - 2 ..... so when you have actually seen NET-1 you will know more about how to handle it then any other person.

      Now considering you have only one week , a good bet may be to go through at least all the topics once, in a quick flashback manner, no need to cram new things as we have already highlighted that most of the mcqs require only that you have briefly studied the topic .......

      That's all I can say about medical ..... actually Biology sections here are written by another nustian ..... not me ....you can have his contact though

      Being a NUSTIAN myself, its an interesting hub covering many aspects. I guess English is a very difficult part of the entrance exam but with lesser weight age, If you prepare smartly for Physics and Maths, you are surely through for Engineering. Maths should always be given preference.

      Anyway Smart work pays better I guess.

      Nust requires 75% attendance .... I can't be exactly sure about seats in chemical engg. depart but in my batch at PNEC electrical their are around 85 civilian seats each year so you can estimate.....

      You will have to live with bad GPA if you attempt to do it whilst doing a job .... otherwise clearing the semester should not be an issue.

      Thanks, two more and last points plz;

      1) How many total seats are there for admission in BE Chemical, in each batch/semester? I mean, how many students will be selected in BE Chemical Engg Discipiline finally?

      2) For selected/current students, every university requires a specific attendance %age to appear in final exam of semester. Like UoG requires 70%, Comsats requires 80% etc. What's EXACT figure does NUST requires?

      I am askimg this because I am doing Job (Relevant to Chem Engg field, as Assistant Chem Engr) in a Strategic Organisation in Morning, Evening and Night Shifts. Our holidays are also on working days usually. I want to conclude either I can do it with my job or not?

      I scored 83% Marks in Matric (2007) and 79% in DAE (2010).

      How many marks should I score in NET to secure my admission in BE Chemical Engineering in 2015?

      Assalam o alaikum, brother! Yar, this article is awesome. Period. I read your article way back when I was prepping for this year's NET. Similar to you, I live in Karachi, so I only had one shot at this NET. I prepped my a** off! But, unfortunately, as I am an F.Sc. student (from Karachi Board) and not an A levels topper like yourself (and that too not an A-One grader), I flunked it badly. I got 116 marks! But, even then this article is the best for all people prepping for NET. People, do not take them lightly. Do whatever this man has said. Don't try to miss out on even a single detail. Believe me, you will thanking him in the near future! Thanks all!!

      Hi,

      I got 69% in F.S.C.I already gave NET once and i got 80.

      Till now you must be thinking that 'This guy is stuoid to apply and think he could getnadmission' well i decided that these consider the NET marks much more rhen FSC.So,if i work hard i would probably get in.

      My question iS that,Is my optimism worth it?
