IISER Entrance Exam Pattern
There will be 60 questions in the question paper, 15 each from Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics. There is no individual cut off for subjects. So if one student did not answer any questions from a subject, he still can make it into IISERs by performing well in other three subjects.
IISERs are science institutions, and so the questions are a little different from JEE Main and other similar entrance exams. Questions are more theoretical, and the number of numerical questions are few.
