let me clear your doubt.

Yes you can give jam exam aftee completing your bsc. And here is the eligibility criteria for jam exam

A canditate after completing their bachelor degree are eligible for jam exam

A candidate belonging to general /obc (non creamy layer) should have atleast 55 percent aggregate marks ,without rounding off.

And those who belong to sc st should have at least 50 percent aggregate marks, without rounding off.

I hope my answer will help you out

Good luck

Sir can u suggest a good book for iit jam mathematics

Ronak Gala Student Expert 10th Oct, 2019

Integral calculus -Most of the questions are from definite integral. I referred Integral Calculus by Samvedna publications .

Differential calculus - Concentrate on Rolles theorem,Lagrange’s theorem, and Intermediate value theorem. Also focus on partial differentiation. I referred Differential equations by Samvedna publications .

Vector algebra - Concentrate on Stokes’ theorem, Divergence theorem and Greens’ theorem. Questions are asked from these topics only. I referred Vector calculus by Samvedna publications.

Differential calculus - This is the easiest topic. Only ordinary differential equations is in the syllabus. I referred Differential calculus by Samvedna publications.

Linear algebra -Questions are mostly application oriented.You can either refer Linear algebra by Hoffman and Kunze (which gives a strong theoretical foundation but lacks examples and exercises for practice) or Linear algebra by Gilbert Strang( which is more application oriented and has a lot of exercises for practice).If your sole aim is to crack JAM go for the latter. But if you also want to build a strong foundation,go for the first one.
