And there are many … Try these first
Congratulations to all KVPY candidates shortlisted for interview for the Year 2011.
|List of students shortlisted under Stream SA|
|List of students shortlisted under Stream SB|
|List of students shortlisted under Stream SX|
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.

We have received hundreds of questions on the above subject. As the questions continue to pour in, we found it necessary to create a post on it.
IIT JEE is an entrance exam of international repute and IITs are considered at par with MIT by many. So, if you are an IIT aspirant, it is very much essential to prepare well in advance.
In this article we are focusing on Physics only
Know the fundamentals
Knowing the fundamentals is the first step. Learn your daily lessons well. In learning Physics, “Questioning Every Answer is more important than Answering Every Question”
Whenever you learn a new concept, try to get all the doubts clarified. Ask doubts and questions to your teachers. (If they don’t answer you satisfactorily, post them at www.askphysics.com )
Observe your surrounding and try finding examples on what you have learnt. The syllabus and books give you a framework on what to study; but don’t just limit your studies on books and syllabus. Search related information from real life and other sources of reference.
RECOMMENDED BOOKS FOR IIT JEE PREPARATION
The very first book you cannot avoid is the NCERT TEXT BOOK for class XI and XII
These books are designed after thorough research and the exercises are carefully added. Be sure to solve all the exercises including the Additional Exercises
Here are some of the Books you can refer for practicing for IIT JEE
- Concepts of Physics (by H C Verma)
- Fundamentals of Physics (by Resnick, Hallidey)
- University Physics (Zemansky)
- Problems in Physics (IE Irodov)
By the by, having too much books will be a hindrance. It is better to start with the NCERT books and after mastering all the exercises take up Resnick Hallidey and after clarifying the concepts take up Problems from H C Verma’s concepts of Physics and then go on to IRODOV if time allows.
Wish you all the best.
The 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
