From the Academic Session 2004-2005, Indian Institutes of Technology
have started conducting a Joint Admission Test to M.Sc. (JAM) for
admission to M.Sc. and other post-B.Sc. programmes at the IITs. The
main objective of JAM is to revive and consolidate 'Science' as a
career option for bright students from across the country and provide
them a single step opportunity for admission to some of the
postgraduate programmes offered at the IITs. In due course, JAM is
also expected to become a benchmark for normalizing undergraduate
level science education in the country.
