Hi, Im pursuing my 2nd bsc in biotechnology, can I write jam exams only for biotechnology or should I learn all the syllabus given as "Biology" to write exams on biotechnology?

Hi aspirant,

Preparing the syllabus given in the IIT JAM exam for biotechnology is enough to crack the JAM exam. If you study the whole biology as a syllabus, you can attend most of the exams conducted in life sciences field for the higher studies and jobs. In JAM exam they will check your critical thinking and your subject knowledge depth. So prepare well.

All the best.


I have only two months for the preparation of IIT JAM examination how would I prepare

Avishek Dutta 2nd Dec, 2019
Two months are a enough for someone to get a good rank in JAM .
Download the syllabus of IITJAM from their official website.
And stick to it.You won't be asked any questions out of the syllabus.
Now make a Doomsday notes please.
You would find it quite handy.Otherwise you have to open those large books again and again.
Compactness of the notes always helps.
Download all of the previous years questions from the website and try to solve them all,even two times if you have enough time.
Also give mocy tests.
Learn from your mistakes.
Learn to use the jam calculator which is not same as the normal calculator we use .
Get enough sleep.
You would be fine

Hello Sai,

Hope you are doing well.

IIT JAM Eligibility Criteria mandates candidates to hold a Bachelor’s Degree . Candidates belonging to General/OBC (Non-Creamy Layer) category must have at least 55% aggregate in Bachelor’s. The marks secured include all the subjects studied at the graduation level, without rounding off the marks.

So you obviously appears for the IIT JAM.

Good luck
