can i participate in JAM exam after Bsc physics?

Kanupriya Gupta 8th Dec, 2019

Dear Aspirant,

Yes, you can definitely participate in the JAM exam after BSC physics.

IIT JAM is a national level examination, that offers admission into the following degree programmes at the IITs and IISC : M.Sc. (four semesters), M.Sc. Ph.D., and M.Sc. Ph.D. dual degree etc. Students that qualify this entrance examination are given admission to the reputed colleges of the country. Admissions are offered to both National and International Students.

The paper is a 3 hour online examination with 60 questions having a total of 100 marks.

There are  seven test papers, namely for the following, Biotechnology (BT), Chemistry (CY), Geology (GG), Mathematical Statistics (MS), Biological Sciences (BL), Mathematics (MA) and Physics (PH). The syllabus will be based on the studied graduation topics.

The Basic Eligibility Criteria for the examination are:

1)All candidates should have a Bachelor's degree

2)In the qualifying degree, the total marks without rounding off or CGPA/CPI inclusive of all main subjects, languages and subsidiaries of all years combined) should be at least 55% or 5.5 out of 10 for General/OBC (NCL)/EWS category candidates and 50% or 5.0 out of 10 for SC/ST and PwD category candidates.

If the CGPA is on a different scale, it would be converted to the ten point scale. It is the candidate's responsibility to show proof of meeting the eligibility criteria, which in your case would be the documentation of your BSC physics.

Since you have done your BSC in physics, pay keen attention to the following topics: Thermodynamics, Electricity and Magnetism,Mathematical Methods, Kinetic theory, , Oscillations, Waves and Optics, Devices and Electronics.

Hope this helps! All the best!

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.
