General/ OBC (Non-Creamy Layer)
Hello Sofia John
Some of the best coaching academies in India for IIT Jam Mathematical Statistics are mentioned below
Kindly visit the mentioned below site for more tips and guidelines regarding how to prepare for JAM Mathematics paper.
Hope it helps you.
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
-Most of the questions are from definite integral. I referred
Integral Calculus by Samvedna publications
- Concentrate on Rolles theorem,Lagrange’s theorem, and Intermediate value theorem. Also focus on partial differentiation. I referred
Differential equations by Samvedna publications
- Concentrate on Stokes’ theorem, Divergence theorem and Greens’ theorem. Questions are asked from these topics only. I referred
Vector calculus by Samvedna publications.
- This is the easiest topic. Only ordinary differential equations is in the syllabus. I referred
Differential calculus by Samvedna publications.
-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.
IIT-JAM Syllabus for Mathematics is mentioned below-
