NTS ICS is for the studentsof ICS group. NAT-ICS is accepted for admissions to Bacehlor programs in Engineering and also for computer sciences programs.
Many top Engineering and IT Universities like COMSATS, FAST, Institute of Space Technology accepts NAT-ICS for admissions to their engineering and CS programs.
ENGINEERING & CS MERIT ON NAT-ICS BASIS
In most of the IT universities, whcih acc ept NAT-IE, merit is close to 77%. Hence, for better chances of admsision it is advisable to target more than 75 Marks in NAT-ICS.
As FAST accepts all those who have more than 75 marks in NTS to their CS Program. Similary merit in COMSATS for engineering programs (except software engineering) is clsoe to 77% and for CS Programs it is close to 75%.
So, it would be safe if you score more than 77 marks in NAT-ICS.
- Verbal Ability (20 MCQs)
- Analytical Reasoning (20 MCQs)
- Quantitative Reasoning (20 MCQs)
- Subject Knowledge (30 MCS in NAT-I and 40 MCQs in NAT-II paper)
- Mathematics 10 MCQs
- Physics 10 MCQs
- Computer Sciences 10 MCQs
BEST STRATEGY for Securing Admission
As NTS is conducted every two to three months, so it is advisable to appear in NTS at least 3 times, to improve your marks. Even if you are a student with 90% marks, it is advised to appear at least twice in NTS so that you can sore maximum.
So, it would be the best strategy to appear in NTS in December/January for the first time when you are in FSc Part-II so that you have enough time to prepare again if you cannot score required marks and have the time limit to appear in NTS at least two more times before admission deadlines of majore universities.
