A sound understanding of your 11th and 12th standard NCERT or equivalent books with biology in 12th (if possible for additional advantage) should surprisingly be sufficient for one to get good marks in their 12th boards and eventually get admitted to one of the IISERs through the “State, Central Boards” (SCB) channel.
So, please do not waste time-solving other books and also make sure that you have a look at the sample papers and syllabus available on the official site.
The Syllabus is same as JEE and PMT exam preparation only.But the exam pattern is different from above one. It consists of 15 questions from each subject (PCMB). Total 60 questions with negative marking and each question of 3marks.
Given below is the syllabus for IISER aptitude test. If you want sample papers you can use the link given in the end. Best of luck!
