What is IIT JAM Entrance Exam?

IIT JAM is a joint admission test conducted by IIT's and IISc for admission into M.Sc, Integrated PhD, M.Sc- PhD dual degree, Joint M.Sc- PhD Courses. In the last few years , This exam has become gateway for many other institutes also. 
Many NIT's have also started taking admission into their M.Sc. Courses based on JAM score.
So the most important question is how to prepare for this prestigious exam.

Important Topics of IIT JAM Physics Exam

The IIT JAM syllabus consists of mainly nine topics-
  1. Mechanics
  2. Electricity and Magnetism
  3. Modern Physics
  4. Mathematical Physics 
  5. Oscillation and Waves
  6. Optics
  7. Thermal Physics
  8. Solid State Physics
  9. Electronics

IIT JAM Physics Important Topics
Given the poor state of university education, students find this exam pretty hard to crack .
Students face difficulties in solving numericals since, during Graduate courses, the stress is mostly on theory and derivations.

Since , IIT JAM paper is mostly a numerical paper so, we have to understand the concepts by solving numericals. if you see the topic wise weightage for the last 13 years , we find that the Mechanics , EM and Modern Physics Consist of Major Chunk of the paper 50.8% . They are followed by Solid State Physics , Electronics Thermal , Mathematical Physics , Oscillation and Waves and Optics.

While you do these topics you must stress on the things which are taught at graduate level.
