They suffer from many inferiority complexes because they think:
- I belong to the poor or middle-class family; I can’t do it because I didn’t study from great schools and colleges.
- I didn’t attend the academy, so I can’t succeed.
- I don’t study 18 hours a day so I will not succeed at all.
- Only genius students can make to NUST, and I am below average.
- I didn’t get good marks in matriculation, and intermediate, so NET is not in my ability.
Test Pattern for NET [NUST ENTRY TEST]
- Mathematics 40% (80 MCQs)
- Physics 30% (60 MCQs)
- Chemistry 15% (30 MCQs)
- English 10% (20 MCQs)
- Intelligence 5% (10 MCQs)
Total MCQs = 200 Time allotted = 3 hours.
Merit Formula for NET [NUST ENTRY TEST]
NUST Merit Formula for FSc students for admissions to Engineering programs is as follows:
- NUST Entry Test 75 %
- HSSC / A level / Equivalent / DAE or HSSC Part-I 15
- Matriculation / 0 Level 10 %
Let’s get to the point.
1. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF FIRST
- Procrastinate a lot. It is a habit to delay a thing. Baad Main Kar Longa Yar (I will do later).
- You will waste a lot of your time on social media and other activities that will not make a big difference in your marks.
- You will not do hard work with your full potential
For example, if you say you can. The Positive Department will say, “Okay, Sir, let me give you a lot of your past thoughts that will prove you can. You got 3 position in 10th class at Army Public School, and you can do again too. You got full marks in that test, here you can do too. Your best teacher told you, you will do something big in your life. It means you can do it. You did this, you did this.”
Bonus – Prepare from Top Grade to Get High Marks in NET
2. ANALYSIS OF THE PAST PAPER OF NET
- Either it is cramming based, or concepts. Which subjects are based on cramming and which are on concepts. But you will find that NET is purely on conceptual based.
- Time length. You can take yourself and see how long it takes to solve.
- The past papers MCQs can’t be repeated in the future NET.
- It is a waste of time, but it is not. Did I mention to observe the pattern and analyze deeply? If yes, do it.
- Nothing is a waste of time if you use your brain how you can use it for your success. Ain’t you going to become an engineer? It needs the problem-solving mind!
- Memorize all the formulas, and they should be at your fingertips.
- Practice with the formulas. Try to think like a scientist which other problems you can solve with the formula.
- Read the small dangerous boxes that you will see in the Physics book. Sometimes these small boxes make big problems for you 😀

- Quadratic Equations – Roots of Unity, Roots of An Equation, Quadratic Formula.
- Sequences and Series [Very Important] – Arithmetic, Geometric and Harmonic Mean and Series
- Permutation – Probability is important, Also have a look at formulas of Combinations.
- Trigonometry – All chapters important. No need to revise proofs, only use formulas. Must know Domain and ranges as well as periodic function conditions.
- Functions and Limits – Must know L’Hospital Rule and read the first 8 pages. Continuous and Discontinuous functions and their conditions.
- Differentiation, Integration and Conic Section are extremely important chapters. People don’t like Integration or Conic Section but you must do one of these, it is extremely important regarding entry test point of view. In NET 2, most of the MCQs from Conic Section came from its first page.
- Analytic Geometry – Slope Point Form and Two Point Form.
- Vectors – You can skip this if you want. Only 1 or 2 MCQs will come from here.
SAT Books for the English preparation will be helpful for you.
If you are extremely weak at English, then don’t waste much time on it because only 10% of the portion comes from English.
The English portion consists of:
- Spell correction (Mississippi, Massachusetts, and committee)
ISSB preparation books would be the best choice for it or you can use any intelligence books that have the sequence of questions as well as other relevant questions related to verbal intelligence questions would be helpful.
It is not that difficult, that’s why I have said to solve this portion first.
You can get 10 out of 10 with little brain power.
You can check the past paper of NET, and then you can guess which type of questions are asked and repeated every time.
3. SMART WORK, NOT WORK HARD. BUT IF YOU DO BOTH, IT’S THE BEST COMBINATION
- Those who work really work hard
- Those who smart work
What is the difference between the two?
- Every tiny detail mentioned on every page of that chapter.
- He memorizes every table having numbers in it.
- He crams everything A to Z.
He looks at the past papers of NET, and see which MCQs are repeated the most. He observes formula based and conceptual. He memorizes only the formula of that chapter, and clear all the concepts. He is able to solve all the difficult MCQs of that chapter. It takes just 2 hours to him.
Because NET 1 and NET 2 are easier than NET 3, and they have less competition than NET 3 where students from all cities of Pakistan apply.
5. TIME MANAGEMENT THE WAY IT WORKS FOR YOU
It is said that entry tests are a test of time management and emotional intelligence.
Always go for the easiest part first. It may be the IQ part because it will be free marks for you.
It is because the academy students take it seriously, and they think money is being spent, they work hard for that reason.
I know it seems strange, “5 times ki Namaz parha kro” (Perform prayers 5 times a day), but it has the potential to make you successful.
- When you wake up in the Fajr time or before Fajr, you have plenty of time until you go to college. This prime time is golden. The excessive amount of Oxygen will make you more active. Your brain will work for you. You will memorize things in less time.
- Quality matters more than quantity. Because your brain will say why to waste 4 hours as you will get only 3 hours at the time of Fajr for revision. But believe me, these 3 hours will be beneficial for you.
- Give satisfaction to your mind. It builds confidence in you.
- Your mama and papa prayers can do wonders.
- You will do more hard work to make your parents proud.
NOT THE END OF THE WORLD
For God’s sake, if you can’t make it into NUST, don’t think it’s the end of the world. I have seen students who graduate from other universities that are more successful than the NUSTIANS.
