Since 1987, the National Standard Examination in Physics (NSEP) has been held throughout India. It is a voluntary test administered by the Indian Association of Physics Teachers (IAPT) that assists in the selection of candidates for the International Olympiad of Science. Around two lakh students are expected to take the test, which will be held at approximately 1500 venues throughout the country.

The specifics of the NSEP 2021-22 syllabus have been released by the Indian Association of Physics Teachers (IAPT). To prepare for the National Standard Examination in Physics, students should study the CBSE Physics Class XI and Class XII syllabus. The main subjects that students should cover for the test are listed in the NSEP 2022 curriculum. Current Electricity, Electro-Magnetic Field, Geometrical Optics, and other CBSE Class 11 and 12 physics topics are included in the IAPT NSEP syllabus.
A table has been provided below that lists the chapters and the most essential subjects according to the chapters. This will allow students to filter out the topics that aren’t vital, allowing them to concentrate on the ones that are.

Frequently Asked Questions on NSEP Syllabus 2021-22
Does NSEP 2021-22 have any negative marking?
Is NSEP more difficult than JEE Advanced?
JEE, or the joint entrance test, is held every year and assists applicants in gaining entry to the country’s top universities. When it comes to NSEP, it is the first step in the long process of selecting applicants for the national olympiad program in physics, and it is widely regarded as extremely difficult.
