ELIGIBILITY criteria for IIT JAM Entrance exam

The candidates who qualify in JAM 2018 shall have to fulfill the following Eligibility Requirement (ER) for admissions in IITs.

All candidates admitted through JAM should have a Bachelor's degree.

At least 55% aggregate marks, without rounding off, (taking into account all subjects, including Languages and Subsidiaries, all years combined) for General/OBC-NCL category Candidates and Foreign Nationals; at least 50% aggregate marks, without rounding off, (taking into account all subjects, including Languages and Subsidiaries, all years combined) for SC/ST and PwD Category Candidates in the qualifying degree.

For Candidates with letter grades/CGPA (instead of percentage of marks), the equivalence in percentage of marks will be decided by the Admitting Institute(s).

Proof of having passed the Qualifying Degree with the Minimum Educational Qualifications (MEQ) as specified by the admitting institute should be submitted by September 30, 2018.

At the time of admission, all admitted candidates will have to submit a physical fitness certificate from a registered medical practitioner in the prescribed form. At the time of admission, the admitted candidates may also have to undergo a physical fitness test by a medical board constituted by the Admitting Institute. In case a candidate is not found physically fit to pursue his/her chosen course of study, his/her admission is liable to be cancelled.

IIT JAM PAPER PATTERN

The exam we are preparing for so judiciously and if we don't know how the exams pattern is; it would be like we are heading for climbing the journey with the right aides but in the wrong direction.

A JAM aspirant should savor his minds for the flair of questions that will be served to him on the D-day, thereby ensuring and developing the prompt approach towards answering the questions wisely and scoring well.

JAM 2019 examination will be conducted for the seven test papers

1. Biological Sciences (BL) :-

2. Biotechnology (BT)

3. Chemistry (CY)

4. Geology (GG)

5. Mathematics (MA)

6. Mathematical Statistics (MS)

7. Physics (PH)

All seven test papers will be of fully objective type, with three different patterns of questions as follows:

Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ)

Section–A contains a total of 30 Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ) involving 10 questions of one mark each and 20 questions of two marks each. Each MCQ type question has four choices out of which only one choice is the correct answer. Candidates can mark the answer by clicking the choice.

Multiple Select Questions (MSQ)

Section–B contains a total of 10 Multiple Select Questions (MSQ) carrying two marks each.
