By knowing the syllabus candidates can get an idea clear idea about what type of questions are asking in the exam. It helps candidates to prepare for the examination in a short span of time. The examination is comprised of questions asked from the subject’s named as Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Biology and English.
The Following table shows the syllabus or topics from which the questions are asked in the paper are explained as below:
|Physics||Electrostatics, Current Electricity, X-Ray, Physics of Nucleus, Principles of Communication, Wave Optics & Electromagnetic Waves, Optics Alternating Current & Electromagnetic Introduction etc.|
|Chemistry||Organic Compounds, Electro chemistry, Nuclear Chemistry, Coordination Compounds, Atomic Structure, Alcohols & Ethers, Compounds etc.|
|Mathematics||Differential Equations, Parabola, Probability, Integral Calculus, Theory of Equations, Area, Continuity and Differentiability etc.|
|Biology||Reproduction, Genetics, Taxonomy, Evolution, Cell, Molecular Biology, Microbiology, Immunology etc.|
|English||Comprehension Questions, English Grammar, Pronunciation etc.|
Tip 2: Know Examination Pattern
