The Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore is going to conduct the national level examination, the Joint Admission Test (JAM) for admission to M.Sc. and associated programs in the IITs, IISCs, NITs, etc to be held on 14 February, 2021(Sunday) as a Computer Based Online Examination. The candidates are expected to have completed most of the preparations by now, with only a few weeks left before the exam although there is always a huge scope to revise for the last time when it comes to appearing for the exams with such eagerness. The exam is being conducted for seven different subjects this time as the exam pattern remains uniform across all papers with each subject based on a different syllabus for JAM. The majority of the questions are of the MCQ pattern followed by a numerical type format. Candidates must have a strong focus on practising numerical and also conjointly referring and practicing from the previous year papers of JAM, identifying topics of higher importance from each subject thereby making a note and focusing on revising these important topics during the last few days. The topper from the previous year JAM exam states that the candidates must aim to get placed among the top 100 ranks of the merit lists in order to secure their admission in the top IITs and IISCs in India.
Not only extensive practice but sincere revision is a must where the candidates must toil to strengthen their weak areas before the admit cards are released and they sit for the exams. Candidates must refer to practising mock tests, pre-solved papers, workbooks, question banks etc which might help them in confronting the exam paper even if it is at the most difficult level. Wishing good luck to all the candidates appearing for JAM 2021, focusing on not to overstress rather play their best shot on the exam day.
