Read on to know the important physics topics from NSEJS syllabus

    The National Standard Examination In Junior Science(NSEJS) is conducted every year. Toppers of NSEJS can attend the National olympiad and then topper students of National olympiad can attend the International Olympiad in Junior Science. The NSEJS syllabus and eligibility are available on their official website-https://www.iapt.org.in. The NSEJS syllabus is mainly based on the Class 9 and 10 CBSE Science.

    Usually Mathematics is included in the NSEJS exam. This year's brochure does not mention Mathematics. Only Physics, Chemistry and Biology with equal weightage.

    A total of 60 questions will be asked. Part A has 48 objective questions with one correct answer. These 48 questions will carry three marks and one negative mark will be awarded for wrong answers. Part B has 12 questions with more than one correct answer. This will carry six marks for the correct answer. To get the credit of six all the correct options should be marked. No negative marking for six mark questions.

    Physics NSEJS Mark Distribution

    A total of six NSEJS previous year papers are analysed. The Physics part of NSEJS is divided into 11 chapters. Some basic mathematics questions are in the physics part based on linear graphs or equations of the straight line. This is included as the first chapter in the analysis. See the chapterwise mark distribution of NSEJS Physics below.
