NSEP 2020 Exam Result
1. What are the Benefits of Qualifying NSEP?
Ans. NSEP provides various benefits to the students who attain excellent NSEP results. Firstly, after qualifying in this examination, they can enjoy a scholarship for the undergraduate course, only if they decide to pursue a career in Physics. However, the maximum number of scholarships granted each academic year is 10.
Apart from that, the gold medallists of NSEP get the opportunity to directly appear for the interview to join the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE). In this case, they need not appear for any entrance test.
Along with these, appearing in such a national level competition allows students to evaluate their academic prowess and their in-depth knowledge about the subject. Thereby, it gives a chance to rectify their mistakes and other shortcomings.
2. What are the Eligibility Criteria for NSEP?
Ans. National Standard Examination in Physics is conducted once in a year and to apply for this examination, candidates need to fulfill specific eligibility criteria. First and foremost, a candidate must be born between 1st July 2000 and 30th June 2005.
Furthermore, appearing students must be residents of India since 30th November 2017 or before that. Another criterion requires the students to be eligible to apply for an Indian passport.
