JEST BROCHURE (JPG)
A number of reputed institutes in india have come together to conduct a Joint Entrance Screening Test (JEST) for enrolment of students in Ph.D. / Integrated M.Sc.-Ph.D. programs in physics (including various inter-disciplinary research areas in physics) and Theoretical Computer Science.

JEST is conducted for selecting candidates to be interviewed for admission to Ph. D. Programmes in Physics/ Theoretical Computer Science in these institutions in india.


Applications are invited from motivated students, with consistently good academic record, for appearing in JEST leading to enrolment in a Ph. D. Programme in Physics (including various inter-disciplinary research areas in Physics)/ Theoretical Computer Science, at any of the 20 premier participating institutions.

JEST score forms an important component in the selection of candidates for the Ph.D. programmes in these institutions.

Candidates with M. Sc. in Mathematics will also be considered at IIA.

Graduates with a B. E. or B. Tech. will also be considered at IIA, IUCAA, NCRA, JNCASR, RRI, SNBNCBS and IMSc.

At IPR candidates should have a Masters degree in Physics, Engineering Physics, Applied Physics, etc. with at least 55% aggregate.

For Theoretical Computer Science: M. Sc. / M. E. / M. Tech. in Computer Science or related disciplines, and should be interested in the mathematical aspects of computer science. B. Tech. students are also eligible as per the list below.

Special Programmes:

At HRI, candidates with a Bachelor's degree will also be considered for the Integrated M. Sc. - Ph. D. programme in Physics.

At IMSc, graduates with B. Sc. / B. E. / B. Tech. degree will also be considered for admission to the M. Sc. (by Research) programme in Theoretical Computer Science / Physics, as part of an integrated Ph. D. programme in these disciplines.

At SNBNCBS, talented graduates with B.Sc(Physics) B.E./ B.Tech. degree will be considered for the Integrated M.Sc. - Ph.D. programme.

PHYSICS

The syllabus for JEST Physics paper is the standard M.Sc. Physics syllabus. In particular, it presumes that the candidates have taken basic courses in Mathematical Physics, Classical Mechanics, Electromagnetic Theory, Quantum Mechanics, Statistical Mechanics and some special subjects such as Condensed Matter Physics, Electronics, Nuclear Physics etc.

THEORETICAL COMPUTER SCIENCE

The test will focus on the following areas: Analytical Reasoning and Deduction, Combinatorics, Data Structures and Algorithms, Discrete Mathematics, Graph Theory, Principles of Programming In each of these areas, familiarity with the basics (including the necessary simple mathematics) is assumed and will be tested. There will be questions of both varieties - some requiring short answers as well as some involving detailed problem solving.
Some text books which may help the candidate prepare for the test are listed in the sample question link. The candidate is not expected to read all the books. There is no specified 'syllabus' for the test; rather, the test is designed to check the applicant's understanding of foundational aspects of computing.
