    Modern physics is there for IIT JAM physics syllabus but why is no books recommended for this topic?

  • Erum shaikh

    If we prepare for iit jam mathematical statistics can we give iit jam mathematics with same preparation


    Hello Erum,
    Greetings from Eduncle!
    As the exam timing for both papers is different, you can appear for IIT JAM Mathematics as well.
    Thanks for asking your query with us!
