How to Prepare for JAM Mathematical Statistics 2020 - Mock Tests

IIT Kanpur will release the JAM mock test 2020 for Mathematical Statistics after closing the application window. JAM 2020 mock test will help candidates to prepare themselves for the entrance examination. There is no restriction in the number of attempts that a candidate can make. Candidates can take as many JAM mock tests as possible.

How to Prepare for JAM 2020 Mathematical Statistics - Time-Table

Candidates must start his or her preparation for JAM 2020 Mathematical Statistics exam with the time table. Candidate must prepare a time table which can cover all the topics of JAM 2020 syllabus. The timetable should be followed religiously during the preparation of JAM Mathematical Statistics 2020. Candidate should not make an unrealistic timetable just to finish the syllabus as early as possible.

How to Prepare for JAM 2020 Mathematical Statistics - Time Management

Time management plays an important role during the preparation of JAM Mathematical Statistics 2020 exam. In order to manage time properly during the examination, candidate must practice as many JAM mock tests as possible. Also, another way of time management is allocating a significant amount of time to solve a particular section. This will be helpful in such a way that candidates will be left with extra time in hand where they will be able to go back to the sections where there are questions left out and complete the exam on time.

Hi, Im pursuing my 2nd bsc in biotechnology, can I write jam exams only for biotechnology or should I learn all the syllabus given as "Biology" to write exams on biotechnology?

Hi aspirant,

Preparing the syllabus given in the IIT JAM exam for biotechnology is enough to crack the JAM exam. If you study the whole biology as a syllabus, you can attend most of the exams conducted in life sciences field for the higher studies and jobs. In JAM exam they will check your critical thinking and your subject knowledge depth. So prepare well.

All the best.


I have only two months for the preparation of IIT JAM examination how would I prepare

Avishek Dutta 2nd Dec, 2019
Two months are a enough for someone to get a good rank in JAM .
Download the syllabus of IITJAM from their official website.
And stick to it.You won't be asked any questions out of the syllabus.
Now make a Doomsday notes please.
You would find it quite handy.Otherwise you have to open those large books again and again.
Compactness of the notes always helps.
Download all of the previous years questions from the website and try to solve them all,even two times if you have enough time.
Also give mocy tests.
Learn from your mistakes.
Learn to use the jam calculator which is not same as the normal calculator we use .
Get enough sleep.
You would be fine

can a B tech student can apply for IIT jam physics exam and what are the requirements that are needed ?

Shivam bhardwaj Student Expert 2nd Dec, 2019

Hello Sai,

Hope you are doing well.

IIT JAM Eligibility Criteria mandates candidates to hold a Bachelor’s Degree . Candidates belonging to General/OBC (Non-Creamy Layer) category must have at least 55% aggregate in Bachelor’s. The marks secured include all the subjects studied at the graduation level, without rounding off the marks.

So you obviously appears for the IIT JAM.

Good luck


I am currently studying bsc third year. I want to do MSc. but I didnt apply for any entrance exam like JAM till now. where can I study? is that any college opened their admission process?

Karvannan sevugamurthi 29th Nov, 2019

Hi aspirant

Yes you can still apply for your M.Sc degree. Because still you have one semester remaining. JAM application, TIFR application portals may get closed, but you can apply for upcoming notifications regarding admission. Universities call for admission, colleges also nearly in the month of March. So be ready to apply for them.

All the best.
