IIT JAM Subjects And Syllabus 2020: How Many Subjects Are There In IIT JAM?



IIT JAM 2020: Every year, one of the Indian Institute of Technology conducts the Joint Admission Test for MSc (JAM), better known as IIT JAM, to select students for admission into the MSc programs at various participating institutions. IIT JAM 2020 is conducted by one of the IITs on a rotational basis, on behalf of the HRD Ministry of the government of India. There are a total of 2554 available seats across the IITs and IISc. Different courses available for admission under IIT JAM are Integrated PhD Degree programmes at the IISc, M.Sc. (Two Years), M.Sc.-Ph.D. Dual Degree, Post-UG Degree and Joint M.Sc.-Ph.D at the IITs. Different centrally-funded technical institutions (CFTI) and National Institute of Technology also accept IIT JAM scores for admission to various courses.

In order to provide admission to the candidates in different available courses, IIT JAM was conducted in seven different science subjects till 2019. But from IIT JAM 2020 onwards, exams are conducted for only six subjects i.e.

  •  Chemistry
  •  Biotechnology
  •  Mathematics
  •  Geology
  •  Physics and
  •  Mathematical Statistics.
