Eligibility

The examination is intended for students in 11th and 12th standard.

Importance

The top 1% students from this examination are selected to sit for the Indian National Physics Olympiad. The theory part of the examination is held in the last week of January. The top 55 or so students are then called for a Practical Examination, and the top 30 among all students are selected for the International Physics Olympiad Training Camp.

Format

The NSEP comprises both multiple choice questions and subjective questions. Due to the large volume of participating students, all questions are not checked for all candidates; subjective questions are checked for only those candidates scoring above a certain minimum in the multiple choice questions. Multiple choice questions carry about 60% of the total weightage and are the crucial determinant for selection to the next stage.

Fee

The fee for the NSEP is about Rs. 75. Application for this examination is typically handled through the school/college to which the student is affiliated.
