Jam msc chemistry book is provided plz

ayush mishra 15th Jan, 2020

Hey aspirant!

IITJAM Chemistry paper consists question from three basic sections of chemistry that is, Physical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry and Inorganic Chemistry. Although few other subjects like analytical chemistry also contain some weightage but it can be grouped into the above three subjects also. Now, the books for IITJAM Chemistry which you should refer are given below although I would advise to study some of them only if you have your basics clear as they are quite descriptive and you have to be clever enough to understand the important topics and the not-so important ones. The books which you should refer are:-

Inorganic Chemistry:- JD Lee, Meissler-Tarr, James E.Huheey. These are the authors of the books and the names of the books are different but are commonly known by these names only. Also you must refer to Vogel's Qualitative Inorganic Analysis book as in my opinion it is the best for inorganic analysis.

Organic Chemistry:- You can refer the books by these authors IL Finar , PS Kalsi and also Mehta and Mehta is good in clearing the basics and reaction mechanisms.

Physical Chemistry:- You can refer these books (these are the commonly known authors of the books) Peter Atkins, Samuel Glasstone, Thomas Engel-Phillip Reid, Keith Laidler etc. These are the books for different topics such as Chemical Thermodynamics, Chemical Kinetics etc.

These were some of the books which you can refer to but these are not necessary as you can have your own reference books based on difficulty level of some of these books.

Hope this helps.

Can Msc geology students from IIT Kharagpur through JAM can apply for non core jobs or msc geology students selected only through IIT jee are allowed to apply for campus placement in non core jobs in programming ,data analysis etc?

Naufal Mohamed 9th Jan, 2020
Oh no you have definitely got the wrong idea here. Whether you got into IIT through JEE or JAM doesn't matter. Every student of the institution is allowed to apply for campus placements regardless of his methos of admission. You should have the minimum required GPA set by your college and you are good to go.

how much are the chances of getting into IIT Indore through IIT jam 2020 if we get 60 marks for general category?

Saloni Singh 8th Jan, 2020

Hello Shaifali,

Hope you are doing well.

Look, IIT-JAM cutoffs vary year by year. There was a sudden change in the cutoffs of different IITs last year which changed the whole pattern.

That was due to the level of Difficulty was low compared to previous years and hence the cutoff went very hight and even at 60 Score in IIT-JAM, one could not get IIT- Indore.

But, the cut-offs are suppose to go down and this time it's IIT Kanpur conducting JAM, and the level of difficulty is also going to increase. So, don't just think of a number as benchmark and attempt. You will get the idea of the paper in the exam hall itself and attempt accordingly.

This year, you have decent chances of getting  IIT Indore if you score better which is appropriate at 60.

So, All the best!

Hope it is helpful to you !

Thank-you !
