The objective of the All Kerala Physics Talent Search Examination is to:
1. identify and recognize talented Physics students
2. help them develop an awareness and confidence about where they stand compared to their peers
3. motivate and orient students towards research and career avenues in Physics by providing opportunities to interact with academicians and scientists
4. orient students towards a right and scientific attitude towards learning Science, in particular Physics
1. The first three toppers will be awarded cash prizes, books and mementos. Those selected for interview will be given merit certificates.
2. The top scorers will be given opportunities to interact with eminent scientists and academicians which may provide immense exposure to career development
3. The toppers will be invited to attend all programmes of the academy
The examination consists of two parts:

The written examination consists of two parts: PART A consists of 75 multiple choice questions. There will be NO negative marking. Answers should be blackened using an HB pencil in the sheet provided along with the question paper. The question in this section will be based on plus two level Physics (90%) and Mathematics (10%). Time alloted: 100 minutes. PART B will have 10 problemquestions which are to be answered in separate sheets provided along with the question paper. No additional sheets will be provided. Time alloted: 60 minutes. Credit
will be given for correct steps and formulae. 10 percent (or 100 toppers among the total candidates who appeared for the PART A, whichever is less) of the top scorers in PART A will be qualified for evaluation of their PART B answers.
The top twenty students in the written examination will be called for a two day science camp at CUSAT. The ranks will be decided based on the performances in the written examination and in a Quiz competition during the camp. No TA/DA will be given neither for the written examination nor for the camp.

Any B Sc. Physics student in his/her 1st, 2nd or 3rd year of study can participate.
