The IOQJS syllabus is now available on Vedantu and students can download it for their reference. Indian Olympiad Qualifier in Junior Science is the first level of the International Science Olympiad. The Indian Association of Physics Teachers and the Homi Bhabha Center for Science Education are the governing bodies for this exam. The IOQJS syllabus is determined by the Indian Association of Physics Teachers. Topics from Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, and Biology covered till the 10th grade CBSE curriculum are covered in the IOQJS syllabus.
This is a secondary level exam, hence students are advised to study the NCERT textbooks for science subjects and mathematics, first, when they prepare for the IOQJS. This will help them to develop a conceptual understanding of the fundamental topics of Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Mathematics. It is important for students to have a stronghold on the fundamental concepts of science subjects and maths since the level of difficulty of IOQJS is quite high and the types of questions asked are mostly unconventional as compared to the other exams.
Students must be thorough with the important topics of Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Mathematics covered in the CBSE syllabus of lower grades as well, for a better understanding of all concepts. Mostly, the concepts taught in Science and Mathematics till Class 8 have to be thoroughly understood. Also, a good knowledge of the belowgiven Maths topics covered in the NCERT curriculum till the 10th standard is required.
Number systems
Linear equations
Surface areas and volumes
Polynomials
Triangles
Quadratic equations
