JAM is conducted by one of the IITs every year. The online process of admission is carried out on one single generated online portal called JAM Online Processing System (JOAPS). Joint Admission Test for M.Sc Programmes is a computer-based entrance test for admissions to a number of programmes including M.Sc, Joint M.Sc-Ph.D, M.Sc PhD dual programme, integrated PhD, M.Sc-M.Tech and M.Sc-M.S (Research) in as many as 20 IITs and IISc Bangalore. JAM 2020 is held in six papers-
- Biotechnology (BT)
- Chemistry (CY)
- Geology (GG)
- Mathematics (MA)
- Mathematical Statistics (MS)
- Physics (PH)
Each subject is for three hours of duration. Candidates can apply for one or two tests depending upon their eligibility for the same. Candidates who score equal to or above the qualifying cutoff are eligible to participate in the counselling that is common for the participating institutes.
