Why IIT JAM Maths





What is IIT JAM?


This post is for JAM Mathematics aspirants. It is aimed to help them in their preparation for the exam. Abstract Classes hope you will like it.

The Joint Admission Test for M.Sc. (JAM) is an admission test for Master of Science (M.Sc.) and other post-graduate science programs at the Indian Institutes of Technology, Indian Institute of Science, and other institutes. IITs started conducting the JAM in the 2004 – 2005 academic session. The main objective of JAM is to provide admissions to various M.Sc., M.Sc.-Ph.D. dual-degree and other post-graduate programs based on the performance in a single test. In due course, JAM is also expected to become a benchmark for normalizing undergraduate-level science education in the country.

As of 2014, the following are the full-time M.Sc. (two-year), Joint M.Sc.-Ph.D., M.Sc.-Ph.D. Dual Degree, M.Sc.-M.Tech., and other post-bachelors degree programs at different IITs, and Integrated Ph.D. Programs at IISc to which admission shall be made on the basis of JAM.

 


Why IIT JAM?


JAM is an exam which is conducted for admission of MSc in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics in IITs, IISc  Bangalore and other institutions. During the recent years’ things changed very fast due to internet access to more people. Now anyone can find easily a lot of students even from remote areas, who appear to it.

There are a lot of MSc Entrance Examinations, conducted in India, but JAM’s reputation among people increased at an amazing rate. The students throughout India participate in it. It might not be wrong to say that JAM has the greatest potential to play a very active role in the development of research in natural sciences: Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics.

IIT Bombay will conduct JAM 2018 examination on February 11 in online mode. The exam will be conducted in one day in two sessions. Candidates have to check the subjects and appear in exam session accordingly. There are seven papers (objective questions) on the following subjects:


Session 1 (9:00 am to 12:00 noon)

  • Biotechnology (BT)
  • Chemistry (CY)
  • Geology (GG)
  • Mathematical Statistics (MS)

Session 2(2:00 pm to 5:00 pm)

  • Mathematics (MA)
  • Physics (PH)
  • Biological Sciences (BL)

Each paper is divided into three sections, consisting of 30 multiple-choice questions, 10 multiple-select questions, and 20 numerical-answer questions. The duration of the exam is 180 minutes. The online registration will start from September 5, 2017, in online mode. Interested candidates can apply for IIT JAM before October 10, 2017.
