Questions related to JAM
I have a backlog in my 4th sem bsc physics hons.I am going to sit for jam 2023 .can I get admission to msc in IIT if I clear jam..??
Hey there!
Well if you are applying for IIT JAM for Masters degree you should know these eligibility criteria, few of them are mentioned below:
1- Students needs to qualify the entrance exam
2- Students needs to be graduated before 2023 to appear for IITJAM 2023. If the students is in final year of graduation he/she can also apply but they need to submit the marksheet of final semester.
The students have to submit their marksheets of graduation, and without clearing all backlogs students do not get their respective degree in any college, hence without clearing all backlogs you are not eligible for IITJAM 2023.

Thank you!
what is a good score or rank in iit jam to get admission in iit bombay for m.sc? also can i prepare for jee and jam same time? and what to do if i ruined my 11th, should i go for jam in 2023 or should give the exam in 2024?
You need to get very excellent marks to get into IIT Bombay's MSc Physics programme. The best scorers are given admission to the programme at IIT Bombay's UR seat. In order to get a seat in the UR category, I would advise you to aim for a rank of roughly AIR 1-70. For the best chance of getting into IIT Bombay, try to earn at least a 60 on your IIT JAM physics exam. Moreover if you don't have confidence in your preparation level for 2023, then going for 2024 is always a great idea!
Till then keep practising and working hard! Hope I have answered your question. All the best!
i got 2252 rank in JAM exam will i be able to get admiision for integerated phd
Hello aspirant,
Hope you are doing good..!!!
I might want to let you know that, taking a gander at the earlier year IIT JAM cutoff for Integrated Phd course, ...the opportunities for you to help confirmation in Integrated Phd through IIT Tough situation, with this position, will be minimal troublesome. Further, if it's not too much trouble, note that the above forecast is exclusively founded on earlier year cutoff and it bound to fluctuate each as it relies upon different elements.
In light of the last year IIT JAM cutoff,....Students who get confirmation for Int-PhD in Physics at foundations like IISc, IISER Pune, or IISER Kolkata score nice imprints in IIT-Predicament. You ought to have a position under 300 in the event that you need affirmation at IISc. The necessary end for IISER Pune stays under 500. For IISER Kolkata, you will require a position under 700 .
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Roorkee will deliver the 1 st IIT JAM 2022 opening and shutting rank on June 1 at jam.iitr.ac.in.
Hope this information helps you!!!
All the best!!!
Im Abhisek Samanta, my IIT JAM Biotechnology rank is 72. Im a general category student. Is there any chance to get any IIT, NIT, or IISER ?
Dear aspirant,
Congratulations on securing 72 rank in iit jam . It's a very good rank and let me tell you there are fair chances that you will get into colleges like iit dhanbad,Madras, kharagpur, guhawati, kanpur, roorkee ,Mandi ,gandhinagar,dharwad.
However various factors are considered while deciding the cut offs like number of candidates appearing in the examination, number of vacant seats in college, previous years cut offs and difficulty level of the paper.

I HAVE OBTAINED A RANK OF 1,437 FOR IIT JAM.AND I AM FROM OBC CATEGORY . WHAT IS THAT CHANCE THAT I MIGHT GET ADMISSION TO IIT, IISC OR IISER?
Hello Megha Sree,
>>>It is difficult to predict because cut-offs changes from year to year and depends on many factors.
>>>For your IIT JAM score it is difficult to get seat in NITs, IITs, IISc, etc based on previous year's cut-offs.
***IIT JAM 2022 expected cut-off for OC Category:
°Chemistry: 14.56 - 16.26 score
°Mathematical Statistics: 29.25 - 30.50 score
°Physics: 18.50 - 20.53 score
°Geology: 47.71 score
°Mathematics: 29.25 - 30.50 score
°Biotechnology: 34.34 - 36.87 score
>>>Based on previous year's cut-offs of IIT JAM for OBC Category candidates, the last rank was 1305 rank for PH paper code for M.Sc Physics in Indian Institute of Technology, Bhilai.
