NED does not entertain any admission request from Foreigners directly. Foreigners are admitted against reserved seats if their names are recommended by the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan (HEC) OR Economic Affairs Division (Ministry of Education, Government of Pakistan) (EAD)
- Students need to have an HSC or equivalent degree in Pre-Engineering Subjects (Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics) with at least 60% marks.
- Students have to appear in the Pre-admission test like the regular students OR they can apply on SAT basis if they have at least 800 in SAT I and at least 1500 in SAT II with the subjects Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics.
Those students who want to take admission in ned have to appear in a test that consists of 100 MCQs
FOR PRE-ENGINEERING STUDENTS
- 25 MCQs of maths
- 25 MCQs of physics
- 25 MCQs of chemistry
- 25 MCQs of English
FOR COMPUTER SCIENCES STUDENTS
25 MCQs of chemistry will be replaced by 25 MCQs of computer science
FOR PRE-MEDICAL STUDENTS
25 MCQs of biology
25 MCQs of physics
25 MCQs of chemistry
25 MCQs of English
NOTE: There is NO negative marking and the test duration will be 2 hours.
Merit will be calculated on the following basis:(2021)
- Pre‐Admission Entry test: 70%
- HSC Part 1 or Equivalent:30%
The students who have already appeared in SAT-1 and SAT-II having a score of at least 800 and 1500 respectively each are eligible to apply.
- Based upon the above weightage, provisional admission will be offered. Candidates will, however, be required to submit their HSSC Mark Sheet (or IBCC equivalence in case of foreign qualifications) having minimum of 60% marks. Failure to get 60% marks OR submitting the mark sheet/equivalence will result in termination of admission.
NOTE: Merit determination varies year to year. In previous years, only 5% of pre-admission test was considered and 95% percent of admission depended upon FSC result/A-levels equivalence.
TIPS FOR PREPARATION OF PRE-ADMISSION TEST
- For preparation, your basic concepts of FSC should be clear.
- For the practice of MCQs you can use various prep books. We found ANEES HUSSAIN and IBA grades prep books helpful in this regard.
- Joining an academy can also help you in the preparation. IBA grades and ANEES HUSSAIN are some academies held in high regard for this purpose.
- Don’t cram anything, try to understand the concepts
- If you are facing difficulty or have any issue in grasping the concepts then there are many videos available on youtube.
- For those who are confused about which board’s textbook to prefer for preparation then Punjab Text Board (PTB) books are highly recommended as these books cover the whole syllabi of the SINDH Board and Federal Board.
- The advantage of this test is that there is no negative marking so you should try to attempt every MCQ. If you have absolutely no idea then choose the most likely option instead of just leaving the question. (this should be the last priority)
Overall the test is easy and if your concepts are clear then you’ll ace it.
EXAM DAY TIPS
- Take 7-8 hours of sleep before your test
- Do make a plan about time management(which is not that difficult because 2 hours for 100 MCQs should be more than enough)
- Don’t panic during the test
- In order to get a good score, learn as many short tricks as possible.
- If you are not able to solve a particular MCQ then don’t waste your time by thinking about it again and again. If you believe that you can solve that MCQ then leave it for the time being and then try to solve it after completing your test
- Save 10-15 minutes for filling the sheet
NOTE: NED usually conducts paper-based tests but this year(2021) due to unavoidable circumstances(COVID-19) the University has made some changes in their test e.g.by conducting computer-based tests in 2 series of tests just like NET.
