IIT JAM 2023: Best Books for IIT JAM Exam Preparation

What is IIT JAM?

IIT JAM stands for Joint Admission Test for Masters, which is conducted by one of the IITs alternatively every year for admission in various PG courses in IITs, IISc, and NITs.

The test is computer-based, with English being the only language provided with a strict time limit of three hours.

What are the Eligibility Requirements (ERs) for Admissions to IITs through JAM?

  1. All candidates admitted through JAM must possess a Bachelor’s degree.
  2. The candidates must PASS the qualifying degree examination. In case a candidate is promoted without a mark sheet, the promotion certificate or a document accompanying the promotion certificate duly signed by the Head of the Institute must mention the subjects taken in that semester/year to evaluate the MEQ requirements for admission to a specific program.
  3. Foreign nationals with Indian degrees are eligible to apply, subject to the admitting institute’s policy.

If CGPA/CPI is on a different scale, it would be linearly mapped to a scale of 10.

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.

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 canceled.

What is the pattern of the IIT JAM examination?

The paper includes a total of 60 questions in which;

  1. 30 are Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs)
  2. 10 are Multiple Select Questions (MSQs)
  3. 20 are Numerical Answer Type Questions (NATs)
