Syllabus and Reference Books for ISAT Exam
Undergraduate courses like B.Tech in Aerospace Engineering, B.Tech in Avionics, and B.Tech in Physical Sciences are offered at IIST. Selection of eligible candidates in to these courses is done through an entrance test, namely ISAT (IIST Admission Test). Topics from Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics of 12th class form the syllabus of ISAT exam. One can refer NCERT books, Books of H.C Verma, Arihant, etc for exam preparation.
