**Examination procedure JEST, Joint Screening Examination Test | Syllabus, Model / Sample questions of JEST**

JEST entrance test will be in objective method for 100 marks. Two divisions will be present in the test. In first section, 25 questions each carrying one mark will be asked. In the second section, 25 questions each of 3 marks will be asked. 40 questions will strictly be from B. Sc Science syllabus. Remaining 60 marks will be from physics of PG level.

**Opportunities present for integrated M. Sc/ M. Tech-PhD candidates and PhD in physics candidates **

Candidates completing PhD in the institutes of JEST will be getting job opportunities in NASA, ISRO, BARC, DRDO, Nuclear energy, R and D divisions, processing companies and also in every organization which employ machines. Wide job opportunities will be present in teaching arena, for the candidates completing courses from these institutes. They play an important role in creation of future inventions such as robots and other advanced machines.

**Important dates of JEST:**

Both online and offline applications are accepted. Last date to receive applications is 3^{rd} January 2011. Hall tickets will be made available from 15^{th} January 2011 at the website.

**Syllabus for JEST**

In JEST entrance test, focus should be on mathematical physics, classical mechanics, electromagnetic theory, quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics along with physics, electronics, nuclear physics and others. Applicants should completely study B. Sc physics three years syllabus.

Sample questions:
