NET Eligibility Criteria

General

Following is the eligibility criteria for admissions in NUST.

FA/FSc background:

  • Candidates having passed their SSC and HSSC or equivalent (as per IBCC) with a minimum of 60% aggregate marks (in both).
  • Candidates from FA/FSc background can apply for NET on the basis of FA/FSc Part-I. The confirmation of their admission is subject to the provision of FA/FSc certificate or Detailed Marks Certificate.

Non-FSc students background:

  • Candidates from non-FSc backrgounds will require equivalence certificate of their qualification, from Inter Board Committee of Chairmen (IBCC), Pakistan, in relevant groups/subjects and with minimum 60% marks.
  • Candidates from O/A Level or any other foreign equivalent background are eligible to apply on the basis of O Level (SSC) equivalence certificate (with more than 60% marks) from IBCC. However, the confirmation of their admission is subject to provision of A Level (HSSC) equivalence certificate (again from IBCC). 
  • The merit for BS Applied Biological Sciences will be based on the complete result of FSc / A Level or equivalent qualification.
