2. You should be Aware of Marking Scheme:

In the section A, all the incorrect marks will be result in negative marks and the scheme is as follow:

· 1 mark question — 1/3 marks are deducted for wrong answer.

· 2 marks question — 2/3 marks are deducted for every wrong answer.

In section B, there is no negative marking scheme.

In the section C, again there is no negative marking as there are only NAT questions.

All the questions which will be not attempted are given zero marks.

3. Study well for the IIT JAM Physics exam:

· Make a time table for the exam, the important books are already mention. Study well for the exam with the help of books and study material.

· Find out the important topics for the exam perspective and prepare it well.

· You should also focus on your weak areas the most.

4. Practice more and more:

· Practicing & revising the topics is a key for the success for any exam.

· For practice take help of previous year question papers and sample papers.

· A quick revision is required, revise your portion once a day.
