JAM also regarded as “Joint Admission Test” for Master of Science course is a test for admission into the programme concerned and various other post Bachelor of Science courses at the IITs (stands for Indian Institutes of Technology). From the year 2004- 2005, the idea of taking JAM Examination was coined by the IITs with the core objective of offering several dual degree and single degree programmes as a career option in the field of Science. Below are the Examination details given for the assistance of all aspiring candidates, who are seeking admission in the IIT which is possible only through clearing the JAM Examination.
