The National Institute of Science Education and Research is a research institution in Bhubaneswar, Orissa, India. The Prime Minister of India laid the foundation stone on August 28, 2006, establishing the institute along the lines of the IISc in Bangalore, and its five sister institutions, the IISERs that are being established at Pune, Mohali, Kolkata, Bhopal and Thiruvanthapuram in India.
Students graduating after 10+2 years of schooling (or equivalent) are admitted into NISER's integrated M.Sc. programs through a competitive annual examination, the National Entrance Screening Test (NEST). The first batch was admitted in September 2007. As of 2009, obtaining a seat in NISER has become highly competitive. From a total of 16,000 applicants nationwide, only 0.325% qualify for admission, making it more difficult to qualify than the IITs.
