There are four sections in the exam, and all have equal weightage. Mentioned below are the details for the same: Biology: This section might sound a tough nut to crack for the PCM students, but a reasonable understanding of class 11 and 12 NCERT concepts can help you sail through this section. If you are not familiar with Biology try to ace the Maths section. As the number of test-takers has grown over the years, this section has also seen a surged difficulty level. Maths: For the Biology students, it might be hard to crack. You need to focus on 11th and 12th class concepts. You can search for the doable questions and solve them. The level is usually at par or even above JEE Mains. The Biology students can cover the scores in their specialised section. Physics and Chemistry: This section is usually easier than the above two sections. The scores obtained here can make-or-break your chances for counselling. The questions in these two sections cover the fundamental and essential concepts. It is better to score well in these two sections. The sections are not really tough. They are far away from the difficulty level of JEE Advance. Overall, the exam is far from the JEE Advanced level. The Biology students have the advantage to finish their section quicker. Make sure your fundamentals are clear and your reasoning ability is good. This should be enough to secure a good score.

Q:   How to select IISERs during online application?

A:
At the time of online application, a candidate will be shown 9 programmes across 7 IISERs or 7 programs across 7 IISERs if the candidate did not have Mathematics as a subject in class 12 or equivalent and is not eligible for BS Economic Sciences and BS Engineering Sciences. Candidate is required to make a preference list from among these programs for which the candidate wants to be considered for an admission. The preference order must be from the most preferred first preference to the least preferred or last preference. The preference list must contain at least one IISER programme. A candidate will be considered only to those IISER programs which are in the candidates preference list. Consequently, a candidate will not be considered for an admission to an IISER programme that is not mentioned in the candidates preference list.

Q:   I am currently in 11th. What is the appropriate time for me to apply for IISER entrance exam?

A:
Hi Sruti, As you are studying in class 11th, it is the best time to start your preparations for IISER. As IISER is one of the toughest exams, it will be better to give more time to yourself. The syllabus is same as class 11th and 12th. You can refer to NCERT for your preparation to clear your concepts and to make your fundamentals strong. Paper is based on your concepts only. You can make your important notes which will help you at the time of revision. You can solve as many as MCQs for your practice and complete mock test series to work on your strength and weakness. Good luck.
