Some Important topics and the weightage

Organic Chemistry

Basic Concept of Organic Chemistry and Stereochemistry


Organic Reaction Mechanism & Synthetic Application


Qualitative Organic Analysis /Spectroscopy


Natural Products Chemistry


Physical Chemistry

Chemical Thermodynamics




Basic Mathematical Concepts


Atomic and Molecular Structure


Inorganic Chemistry

Transition metals (d-block)


Chemical Bonding and Shapes of Compounds

Main Group Elements (s and p blocks)

Now you can go through this topics only but then you would have to leave 20% of the questions unattempted.
So it would be better if you can cover your total syllabus.

can i participate in JAM exam after Bsc physics?

Kanupriya Gupta 8th Dec, 2019

Dear Aspirant,

Yes, you can definitely participate in the JAM exam after BSC physics.

IIT JAM is a national level examination, that offers admission into the following degree programmes at the IITs and IISC : M.Sc. (four semesters), M.Sc. Ph.D., and M.Sc. Ph.D. dual degree etc. Students that qualify this entrance examination are given admission to the reputed colleges of the country. Admissions are offered to both National and International Students.

The paper is a 3 hour online examination with 60 questions having a total of 100 marks.

There are  seven test papers, namely for the following, Biotechnology (BT), Chemistry (CY), Geology (GG), Mathematical Statistics (MS), Biological Sciences (BL), Mathematics (MA) and Physics (PH). The syllabus will be based on the studied graduation topics.

The Basic Eligibility Criteria for the examination are:

1)All candidates should have a Bachelor's degree

2)In the qualifying degree, the total marks without rounding off or CGPA/CPI inclusive of all main subjects, languages and subsidiaries of all years combined) should be at least 55% or 5.5 out of 10 for General/OBC (NCL)/EWS category candidates and 50% or 5.0 out of 10 for SC/ST and PwD category candidates.

If the CGPA is on a different scale, it would be converted to the ten point scale. It is the candidate's responsibility to show proof of meeting the eligibility criteria, which in your case would be the documentation of your BSC physics.

Since you have done your BSC in physics, pay keen attention to the following topics: Thermodynamics, Electricity and Magnetism,Mathematical Methods, Kinetic theory, , Oscillations, Waves and Optics, Devices and Electronics.

Hope this helps! All the best!
