MSC BIOTECH ENTRANCE COACHING


JNU Biotechnology Entrance Examination

(Analysis of General Chemistry Portion)



Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi conducts combined entrance examination for the admission in M.Sc. Biotechnology (CEEB) every year, on behalf of nearly 33 universities and it alone offers approx. 500 + seats.

The paper is divided into two parts; Part - A & Part - B
Chemistry is the compulsory portion of both parts, there are usually 15 questions from chemistry out of 60 questions in the Part - A while the number of questions being asked in Part - B from chemistry portion are usually 16 to 18. 

For the ease of study we may divide chemistry portion into four categories viz General chemistry, Inorganic chemistry, Organic chemistry and Physical chemistry. Here in this post we will discuss the trends and number of questions being asked from the General chemistry.

General chemistry includes the following chapters: Laws of chemistry, Mole concept, Atomic structure, Radioactivity, Chemical bonding, Redox chemistry. Let’s first have a look at the number of questions being asked from this portion during the last five years.

It is noteworthy to mention over here that no question was asked from the chapter Laws of chemistry.
If we further analyze the papers we observe that maximum questions were asked from the chapter chemical bonding and atomic structure.

Another important perspective we draw....... is that two of the above mentioned topics i.e. atomic structure and radioactivity also offer a few questions in Physics portion of both Part A & B. 
Here i present a brief analysis of the trends in physics portion (both Part A & Part B) of last five year papers.

After analyzing the past trend i firmly suggest that if one is well versed with above five topics (mole concept, atomic structure, radioactivity, chemical bonding and redox chemistry) it’s a good stake, you surely will find not less than ten questions in both Chemistry and Physics portions.

Enquiries and suggestion are welcome.
Thank you all
Good luck.
