Discuss the Difficult questions of AISSCE 2012

How was the Physics Question Paper for AISSCE (CBSE Class 12) 2012?

Many students complained that many questions of Physics question paper AISSCE 2012 were unexpected and hard.

Do you think so?

Post the questions you felt hard or unexpected here as comment to this post. Let us discuss them here.


Congratulations to all KVPY candidates shortlisted for interview for the Year 2011.

 What Next?

The candidates after scrutiny of their documents will be called for interview. The interview will generally assess the candidates personality as well as the inclination towards taking up research as a career.

How to prepare for interview?

Try to be a master of what you say you have learnt; I mean, the portions of  class XI and XII. Give extra attention to the portions you like.

Choose some portions of Physics or Chemistry or Maths or Biology of which you are a fan. Collect as much details of that area including recent research in those fields. Reading the Science Research Publications such as Nature, Nature Physics, New Scientist, Physics Today and the like will help you in this. These magazines are generally available in Public libraries and British Libraries.

You should be able to explain well “Why you want to take up research?

Have more doubts? Your questions and doubts are always welcome.

A Hot Debate:: Which is better for IIT Preparation in Physics ? I E Irodov or H C Verma

It has been a question among many students; which is the best book for preparing for IIT JEE. Many suggest that H C Verma is the best one. A few who had access to I E Irodov’s book says that it is better.

What is your opinion?

Post your opinions as comments to this post. Please be sure that you post your comments after using the two books.

(In my opinion, you should use either only after completing all the problems of NCERT text book and the Resnick and Halidey)

“Where can I learn integration fundamentals”



Just find below one of the best choice for you.

IIT JEE Physics Syllabus

Sourav Asked:

Excel in IIT JEE“Can you tell me the IIT Physics Syllabus and how I should proceed to crack competitive exams, assuming that I am starting fro square one ?”



IIT JEEThe IIT JEE Syllabus for Physics is available at http://jee.iitd.ac.in/physics.php

For preparation, the most important books you must study is the NCERT Physics for class XI and XII. Don’t get misguided by someone saying that the NCERT books are not worthy. Almost all the entrance examinations are depending on NCERT syllabus and books to set the standard. The NCERT text book has evolved as a result of strenuous effort of a group of hundreds of teachers from different parts of India and has been revised and updated after consultation and review workshop including teachers from every state. So, it is better to depend on it.

If you have mastered the book and can solve each and every exercise and additional exercise from the NCERT text book, then be glad that you have reached the level expected of you.

The next book you should take for reference is Fundamentals of Physics by  Resnick and Hallidey. (This is the book many of the teachers and authors used to follow before the present revised edition of NCERT text book)

While preparing for IIT or any other competitive exams, it is important to understand the concept basically rather than to practice a large number of numerical problems.

A Chinese proverb says:

“Don’t give fish to a hungry man, teach him how to fish. He will not be hungry again!”

So, our aim is to practice the tactics and methodology with a strong foundation of the subject so that we can solve any type of conceptual or numerical problem.

Dare ask doubts to your teachers. (If you don’t dare, just post them here at www.askphysics.com ). Think and analyse facts yourselves and never depend on mere rot learning. Doubts pop up when you start thinking on what you learn. What you learn must be a part of your brain and life.

Wish you good luck
