IIT JAM Physics

Joint Admission Test for M.Sc (IIT-JAM)

Since 2004-05, IITs started conducting a common entrance test called Joint Admission Test for M.Sc. (JAM). The  main purpose of  conducting JAM is to provide admissions to M.Sc, Joint M.Sc.-Ph.D., M.Sc.-Ph.D. Dual Degree, and other Post-Graduate Degree Programmes to all the reputed IITs and the Integrated Ph.D. Degree Programmes at IISc. It gives a bright career option for science students. The exam is also considered a benchmark for the undergraduate level science education in the country. 

IIT-JAM Exam Schedule:
Every year, IIT-JAM is conducted in the month of February. Generally, IIT-JAM notification is out in the months of October.  

Educational Qualification:

(i) For admission to IISc, Bangalore, Candidates should  secure 60% from a recognized University or its equivalent for General/OBC category candidates and at least 50% aggregate marks for SC and ST category candidates 

(ii) For seeking admisiion to IITs, Candidates must secure at least 55% aggregate marks from a recognized University for General/OBC category candidates and at least 50% aggregate marks for SC, ST and PD category candidates.
