    My aim from childhood was study basic science and to become a scientist. All the professors are well qualified and have their PhD and post doc from various renowned universities like MIT, Yale , Stanford etc. Teachers are very humble and helping. Course structure is fine and is according to the current time and foreign universities. For first two years you have to study all subjects and from third year onward you can choose your particular subject for major in which you want to do your research.

    B.Sc Physics aspirants must have at least cleared the 10+2 examination from a recognized Board in the Science stream and must have studied Physics as a mandatory subject at the qualifying level. Admission is merit-based most of the time, but some universities hold entrance exams for admission to BSc Physics.

    Thank you.

    What will be the cutoff for IISER bgeneral?

    Dear aspirant

    It's quite hard to tell about the cut off marks exactly as it's varies every year depending on difficulty level of question paper, number of candidates appeared, seats availability etc.

    There are total seven IISER college in India having around 1700-1800 seats.

    IISER,Pune is one of the most demanded college among all of them.

    In 2021, cut off ranks for Gen category in IISER college was AIR 3327 for BS (ECONOMIC SCIENCE) IISER BHOPAL.

    So if your all india rank is below this in this year exam then you will have chances of getting any IISER college.

    Hope this information helps

    All the best
