Here is the TIFR Entrance Exam syllabus:

CHEMICAL SCIENCES
SYLLABUS
The syllabus for the Written test in Chemistry is similar to the typical standard syllabus
followed in any Indian university for the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degree course. The questions
are aimed at testing the basic understanding and knowledge in the areas of physical,
organic, inorganic, analytical, electro and quantum chemistry, biophysics,
thermodynamics, spectroscopy (NMR, fluorescence, IR, UV and X-ray), logic and
statistics and mathematical methods.

MHz. For the same field, an electron absorbs at a frequency of:

towards the topics listed under `Computer Science' below; and Part C will
be oriented towards topics listed under `Systems Science' below. Only one
of Parts B, C, should be attempted. The duration of the written test will
be three hours. The test will be of multiple choice type, with negative
marking for incorrect answers. The use of calculators will not be allowed
during the test.

SYLLABUS

In general, the syllabus for the Admissions Tests in Physics (Written and Interview)
is typically a course of studies in Physics as the main subject in the Undergraduate
and Masters levels in an Indian University. The questions in the written test (multiplechoice
type) and the interviews are distributed over the following areas: Classical
Mechanics; Mathematics relevant to Physics; Electricity and Magnetism; Quantum
Mechanics; Heat, Thermodynamics and Statistical Physics; General Physics;
Modern Physics; Electronics and Experimental Physics.
