I would like to bring your attention to the point that it does not matter whether you are preparing for JAM Biotechnology or Biological Science, or even JNU/ NCBS for that matter. What matters is that you have to device a collective strategy to attempt all these exams. Their pattern may be tad bit different but overall these entrance exams are designed in such a way that all B.Sc. (Biotechnology, Microbiology, Botany, Zoology, even PCM for that matter) can attempt these examinations.
So the basics here also remain the same:
- Study from standard reference books and not guides.
- Make thorough notes for yourself, right from the first year.
- From third year, start preparing yourself for practicing MCQs. Solve question banks, papers and clock your time to finish 100â€“150 odd questions in 3 hours.
- Study for Physics and Chemistry (+2 level) - If you are confident that you had thoroughly studied Physics and Chemistry during your +2, so you can start revising the content one year before the exam (which falls in February now, around 5th semester/ 3rd year). Or if not so sure, then focus on studying the concepts right from first year.
After Completion of B.Sc, Join Gyan Bindu Academy for Regular Classroom Coaching, Special Coaching for IIT JAM and Other M Sc Entrances for Biological Sciences and Biotechnology. This shall lead success in IIT JAM Examinations
