IIT JAM 2023: Follow these tricks to get success in IIT JAM, you will get high marks

:Joint Admission Test for MSc (JAM) is conducted by IITs and IISc. The score of this test is used for admission to various post graduation programs like M.Sc, M.Sc Tech, M.Sc Research, M.Sc-M.Tech Dual Degree, Joint M.Sc. Admission to PhD (Joint MSc-PhD) and MSc-PhD Dual Degree (Msc Phd Dual Degree) is done in many disciplines. The main exam will be conducted on 12 February 2023. IIT Guwahati is the conducting institute for exam.

It is one of the toughest exams for PG admission in science fields and takes a heavy toll on the candidates. Thus, needless to say that the preparation should start as early as possible to have a higher chance of securing a good score.

Making a list of all the formulas will help in preparing for the exam from time to time. Thermodynamics is one of the most important chapters of this paper and it is very important to achieve accuracy and perfection in all the concepts related to this chapter.

Electricity and magnetism have maximum weightage in this exam. Some other important topics are Kinetic Theory, Mechanics and General Property Matters.

2. Chemistry

Organic and Physical Chemistry are important subjects as they carry maximum weightage in IIT JAM. Inorganic Chemistry is another subject that may require additional attention. Apart from these 3 subjects, candidates must also prepare for the remaining subjects as they all are important. Hence, it becomes very important to cover the entire syllabus.


Differential Calculus is the most important topic of this subject. For this the candidate needs maximum attention. Other topics like Sequence and Series and Linear Algebra are also very important.


Candidates get confused between the question papers of Mathematical Statistics and Mathematics. The syllabus and exam pattern of both the exams are different. In Mathematical Statistics, 60% weightage is given to Statistics and 40% to Mathematics. Thus, candidates need to tune their mind to think from statistics point of view rather than maths.

It will be beneficial to note down the important formula, points, theory and all the topics in the respective subjects to remember the subjects easily. Estimation and Random Variables are some important topics.


The curriculum for biotechnology is a compilation of different subjects such as biology (44%), physics (18%), mathematics (18%), and chemistry (20%). That’s why students should focus more on biology. Generally the questions of biology and chemistry are based on class 10th, 12th and UG levels.

The questions of Mathematics and Physics are generally based on 10+2 level. Biochemistry and Molecular Biology are the most important topics in Biology section. Mechanics from Physics, Coordinate Geometry from Mathematics and Organic Chemistry from Chemistry are other topics on which candidates should focus to score better marks.

6. Geology

Petrology is the most important topic for this subject. Other subjects such as Economic Geology, Structural Geology, Mineralogy and Applied Geology are other subjects that candidates should focus on.


As this is a relatively new subject, which has been introduced recently, it is difficult to ascertain the exact nature of questions expected by the candidates. However, candidates can expect questions from their UG level. There can be more MSQ type questions than MCQs as it is a theory-based topic.
