Admission to M.Sc. (Two Year), Joint M.Sc.-Ph.D., M.Sc.-Ph.D. Dual Degree and other post-bachelor’s degree programmes

From the Academic Session 2004 - 05, Indian Institutes of Technology have started conducting a Joint Admission Test for M.Sc. (JAM). The objective of JAM is to provide admissions to various M.Sc., Joint M.Sc.-Ph.D., M.Sc.-Ph.D. Dual Degree and other post-bachelor degree programmes at the IITs based on the performance in a single test and to consolidate Science as a career option for bright students from across the country. In due course, JAM is also expected to become a benchmark for normalizing undergraduate level science education in the country.
The M.Sc., Joint M.Sc.-Ph.D, M.Sc.-Ph.D. Dual Degree and other post-bachelor degree programmes at the IITs offer high quality education in their respective disciplines, comparable to the best in the world. The curricula for these programmes are designed to provide the students with opportunities to develop academic talent leading to challenging and rewarding professional life. The curricula are regularly updated at each IIT. The interdisciplinary content of the curricula equips the students with the ability to utilize scientific knowledge for practical applications. The medium of instruction in all the programmes is English.
GENERAL INFORMATION
(i) The JAM 2012 is open to all nationals (Indian/Foreign). Candidates seeking admission to academic programmes covered under JAM 2012 need to appear in JAM 2012. There is no age restriction.
(ii)Note that JAM 2012 will be held on 12 February 2012. The date for the JAM 2012 examination is earlier than previous years.
(iii) For admission, foreign nationals are required to satisfy the rules and regulations of the admitting Institute(s) pertaining to foreign students. For further details, they are advised to contact the Admitting Institute(s) concerned.
(iv) To apply for admission to a desired programme, a candidate is required to qualify in the corresponding test paper and also satisfy the minimum educational qualifications and eligibility criteria of the respective academic programme.
(v) The candidates who have either appeared or are due to appear in the final examination of their qualifying degree in 2012 are also eligible to appear in the test. By qualifying in JAM 2012, candidates can apply for provisional admission subject to the condition that: (i) all parts of their final examination shall be completed by the date of registration of the Admitting Institute, and (ii) proof of having passed the qualifying degree with required eligibility, as specified by the admitting institute will be submitted by30September 2012.
(vi) Admissions to various academic programmes at different institutes will be made on the basis of merit in JAM 2012.

2:00 p.m.- 5:00 p.m.
BT/GP/MA
The test schedule will not be changed under any circumstances.
Number of test papers allowed: A candidate can appear in either one or two test papers,subject to the restrictions imposed by the Test schedule given above and on payment of requisite additional fees for the second test paper, if applicable. Candidates desiring to appear in two test papers must ensure, from the above Test schedule, that there is no clash of time schedule for the chosen test papers.
PATTERN OF TEST PAPERS
The questions for Biotechnology and Computer Applications test papers will be fully objective type. These test papers have to be answered in an Objective Response Sheet (ORS) by darkening appropriate bubbles using black HB pencil. Since the ORS will be evaluated by electronic means, it is imperative that the instructions given on the ORS are carefully read and followed by the candidates.
All other test papers will be objective-cum-subjective type. There will be a “question-cum-answer booklet” for each of these six test papers. Answers to various questions are to be given at appropriate places in the “question-cum-answer booklet” itself. No supplementary sheet will be provided. In each of these six test papers, objective and subjective questions will carry weightages of 30% and 70%, respectively.
The objective type questions in all the test papers will have four choices as possible answers, of which, onlyonewill be correct. There will benegativemarking for wrong answers to theobjective type questionsinall the test papers.For wrong answer to an objective type question, candidates will getnegative1/3 (negativeone third) of the maximum marks assigned to that question.
Note:
Use of logarithmic tables/calculator of any kind/ cellular phone/electronic gadgets is NOT permitted in the examination hall.
All answers to the subjective type questions must be written in blue/ black/ blue- black ink only. Sketch pen, pencil or ink of any other colour is not permitted.
The medium for all the test papers will be English only.
Use of unfair means by a candidate in JAM 2012, whether detected at the time of test, evaluation or at any other stage, will lead to cancellation of his/her candidature as well as disqualification of the candidate from appearing in JAM in future.
Disclosure of identity in any form, such as writing registration number or name inside the question-cum-answer booklet, or making any kind of distinguishing marks, may lead to disqualification of the candidate.
