For Ph.D in Physics you must have Master's degree in Physics with at least 55% marks from a recognized University to become eligible for JEST. There is relaxation of 5% marks for candidates who belong to reserved category. JEST is conducted for Ph.D and Integrated Ph.D admission in only two subjects which are Physics and Theoretical Computer Science. Therefore, you can surely apply for this exam.

You can apply for JEST through online application mode. You must have a valid email id to get yourself registered for JEST through their official website. You have to fill all the relevant details in the online application form and submit it online. Fee can be paid in online mode or bank challan.
