The IIT JAM Physics syllabus contains the topics in forms like Modern Physics, Solid State, Mechanics and Electricity. The IIT JAM syllabus does not change every year by IIT and there are seven subjects in it and each and every subject has different syllabus. The seven objective type test papers include Mathematics (MA), Physics (PH), Chemistry (CY), Geology (GG), Mathematical Statistics (MS), Biological Sciences (BL) and Biotechnology (BT). A full proof exam strategy for JAM preparation is required.
IIT JAM Physics Syllabus
Candidates appearing in IIT JAM must be aware of Iit Jam Physics syllabus. No changes have been made in the paper pattern and syllabus. Therefore, candidates having complete knowledge of important topics will help them a lot in the preparation of examination. The subject wise syllabus details are available online on the official website and candidates can very easily download the syllabus and can start the preparation of the examination of IIT JAM. The syllabus of IIT Physics is as follows:
