Eligibility Criteria for Appearing in JEE (Advanced) 2015

A candidate can attempt JEE (Advanced) a maximum of two times and that too in consecutive years. Therefore, JEE (Advanced) 2015 should be either the candidate’s FIRST attempt OR the SECOND consecutive attempt.

Criterion 4 – Appearance in Class XII (or equivalent) examination.

The candidate should have appeared for the Class XII (or equivalent) examination for the first time in all the subjects in either 2014 or 2015.

Candidates who appeared for the Class XII (or equivalent) examination in 2014 and wish to re-appear for the same in 2015 (either for improvement or because they failed in one or more subjects), will have to re-appear in all the subjects in 2015.

Those who appeared for the first time in their Class XII (or equivalent) examination in 2013 or earlier are NOT eligible. However, candidates whose Class XII (or equivalent) examination Board results for the academic year 2012-13 were declared after June 2013 are eligible to appear for JEE (Advanced) 2015.

IITJEE Advancec eligibility criteria relaxed

In a major decision, the IIT Council chaired by Union Human Resource Development minister Smriti Irani has agreed to change the IIT-JEE Advanced eligibility criteria- from the existing top 20 percentile to top 20 percentile or 75 per cent marks in the Class XII board exam, whichever is lower.

Recommended by the IIT Joint Admission Board (JAB) earlier this month, the changed JEE eligibility criteria will be a major relaxation for IIT aspirants from the CBSE board system and state boards which are seen as more generous with their marking system.

GATE 2015 deadline extended for application form

About GATE

The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an entrance examination and scholarship test held by the seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore. The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) creates procedures for postgraduate admissions.

The GATE 2015 examination identifies candidates for admission to postgraduate programmes in Engineering (Masters degree programme, both Master of Technology (M.Tech) and Master of Engineering (M.E.), technology, architecture, science and related disciplines at the national level.

When did Bohr hydrogen atom approaches classical condition

Here our problem is to prove that the Bohr hydrogen atom approaches classical conditions when n becomes very large and small quantum jumps are involved.

To prove this let us compute the frequency of a photon that is emitted in the transition between the adjacent state

Nuclear Fission Basics

Nuclear fission is said to have occurred when nucleus of an atom splits into several small fragments. In nuclear physics nuclear fission either occurs as a nuclear reaction or as a radioactive decay process in which nucleus of an atom splits into smaller and lighter nuclei. The fission process often produces free neutrons and photons (in the form of gamma rays), and releases a very large amount of energy even by the energetic standards of radioactive decay.

Maxwell’s Equations – Differential form of Faraday’s law (Part 6)

From the left side of the equation is nothing but the curl of the electric field and it tells about the tendency of field lines to circulate around a point . Curl of a vector means how much the vector curls around the point in question. The right side represents the rate of change of magnetic field with time. So from this it could be stated that
