IIT - JAM (Joint Admission Test for M.Sc)
From the Academic Session 2004-2005, IITs have started conducting a Joint Admission Test for M.Sc. (JAM). The objective of JAM is to provide admissions to M.Sc. (Two Years), Joint M.Sc.-Ph.D., M.Sc.-Ph.D. Dual Degree, M.Sc.-M.Tech., and other Post- Bachelor’s Degree Programmes at the IITs and Integrated Ph.D. Degree Programmes at IISc and to consolidate Science as a career option for bright students from across the country. JAM is expected to serve as a benchmark for the undergraduate level science education in the country.
The Integrated Ph.D. Programme at IISc was started in the early 1990s to enable students to directly join for a Ph.D. Degree after their B.Sc. Degree. The M.Sc. (Two Years), Joint M.Sc.-Ph.D., M.Sc.-Ph.D. Dual Degree, and other Post-Bachelors Degree Programmes at the IITs and the Integrated Ph.D. Programmes at IISc offer high quality education in their respective disciplines, comparable to the better in the world.
