What is the syllabus for the National Standard Examination in Junior Science?
The pandemic has changed the number of stages of the NSEJS exam but since the beginning of the exam in the year 1987 by the IAPT Indian Association of Physics Teachers, the subjects on which the candidates are tested are Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. The topics are mostly based on the classes of class 9 and 10. The Central Board Of Secondary Education that is the CBSE curriculum is followed in this olympiad exam. And students appearing can be from the state board, CBSE board and even ICSE (Indian Certificate Of Secondary Education) board. The topics are mainly from the NCERT textbook and based on the previous year papers if NSEJS the syllabus can be understood.
