National Testing Service which is the best department to judge the eligibility of candidates in over all Pakistan in any field. NTS conduct written test to select most eligible applicants for every required post like admissions, jobs etc. NTS is the top testing service in Pakistan but NTS never maintains a standard of passing marks in all tests, because in every test the standard of passing marks changes according the level of test.
The standard of NTS for the passing marks in mostly tests is 50% marks but it can be change according to the post, job or any other admission etc. In 2016 the passing marks standard for the educators is 50% and on the other side candidates who get 45% marks will also marked as passing candidates. The eligibility criteria for educators mentioned as 50% but after test it will be decreased 5% to attain the numbers of the candidates which required for educators.
Here is the rumors will also be that NTS will never mentioned any standard for the passing marks in any test, after test NTS will see that mostly candidates got 55% or 60% marks they will set the standard of 65% or 70% for passing. In other case NTS decreased the percentage for the educators from 50% to 45% and the applicants have 45% marks considered as passed candidates. Those candidates who had taken 45% marks in their NTS test for educators were eligible for pre-interview.
The merit formula was as under:
Marks allocated for matric 15
