NEST Exam is conducted for the admission to Integrated MSc program offered by NISER and CBS. The exam is held in May every year, across various centers in India. NISER is the best institute in India for Integrated MSc after IISERs. The NEST exam is considered to be tougher than IISER Aptitude Test. Those students who are preparing for NEST must refer NEST previous question papers, to get an idea about the exam pattern and difficulty level. The aspirants should spend 3 hours on solving each NEST previous year question papers to get deep knowledge about their preparation progress so far.
I also recommend referring IISER Aptitude Test Previous Year question papers
since both the exams are similar. IISER aptitude test has 60 questions, from Biology, Physics, Chemistry and Maths, 15 from each, same as NEST Exam. Both IISER and NISER are conducting these exams for research program admission. So I think it is better to refer previous year question papers of IISER and NEST.
