The syllabus for JEST Physics paper is the standard M.Sc Physics syllabus. In particular, it presumes that the candidates have taken basic courses in Mathematical Physics, Classical Mechanics, Electromagnetic Theory, Quantum Mechanics, Statistical Mechanics and some special subjects such as Condensed Matter Physics, Electronics, Nuclear Physics etc.

The test questions will have a total of 50 questions with 25 from First level and 25 from Second level, adding to a total maximum marks of 100. 40% questions will be from B.Sc. Level and 60% questions will be from M.Sc. Level.

It is the national wide examination conducted collectively by various institutes of India which offer PhD in Physics and Computer Science.

The best way to prepare for JEST examination is know the syllabus, paper pattern and practicing the previous and sample papers.

Eligibility:

M.Sc. in Physics or M.Sc. / M.E. / M.Tech. in related disciplines
B.E. or B.Tech. will also be considered at IISc, IMSc and more
Final year B.Sc. and first year M.Sc. in Physics / Electronics / Astronomy

It is conducted for both subjects of Physics and Computer Science.

Paper Pattern:

The question paper for JEST examination will have multiple choice questions with two levels of difficulty,
First level will have 25 easier questions carrying one mark each
Second level will have 25 difficult questions carrying three marks each.
Total number of questions will be 50 and total marks are 100.
