About Physical Chemistry in CSIR exam

  For all branches of chemistry students to crack CSIR-UGC NET exam, solving the physical questions is very essential. This part-B shall contain 40 Multiple Choice Questions(MCQs) a candidate shall be required to answer any 35 questions. Each question shall be of  two marks. The total marks allocated to this section shall be 70 out of 200.

So, around 13-15 bits in section-B usually appear from Physical chemistry which are mainly from 10+2 NCERT Chemistry textbooks and also from under graduate level books. Similarly part-C shall contain 60 questions a candidate shall be required to answer any 25 questions. Each question shall be of four marks. The total marks allocated to this section shall be 100 out of 200. Mostly 20 bits appear form Physical chemistry only.

Here we go the full information about Physical chemistry topics and suggestions to crack CSIR NET Chemical Sciences.
