    www.gate.iitd.ac.in/jam

    Admission to M.Sc. (Two Year), Joint M.Sc.-Ph.D., M.Sc.-Ph.D.

    Dual Degree, Integrated Ph.D. and other Post-Bachelor’s Degree Programmes

    From the Academic Session 2004 - 05, Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) have started conducting a Joint Admission Test for M.Sc. (JAM). Since 2012-13, Indian Institute of Science Bangalore has also joined the IITs in the conduct of this test. The objective of JAM is to provide admissions to various M.Sc., Joint M.Sc.-Ph.D., M.Sc.-Ph.D. Dual Degree and other post-bachelor degree programmes at the IITs based on the performance in a single test and to consolidate Science as a career option for bright students from across the country. In due course, JAM is also expected to become a benchmark for normalizing undergraduate level science education in the country.

    The M.Sc., Joint M.Sc.-Ph.D, M.Sc.-Ph.D. Dual Degree and other post-bachelor degree programmes at the IITs offer high quality education in their respective disciplines, comparable to the best in the world. The curricula for these programmes are designed to provide the students with opportunities to develop academic talent leading to challenging and rewarding professional life. The curricula are regularly updated at each IIT. The interdisciplinary content of the curricula equips the students with the ability to utilize scientific knowledge for practical applications. The medium of instruction in all the programmes is English.

    Only the candidates who qualify in JAM 2013 (whose names appear in the merit list) will be eligible to apply for admission to any of the corresponding academic programmes available at IISc Bangalore & IITs (refer Appendix-I and II of this Information Brochure).

    However, for admission to Integrated Ph.D. programme at IISc Bangalore & IIT Bombay, the JAM-2013 qualified candidates are required to refer to the IISc Bangalore & IITB admissions website for details including the dates for interview.

    Candidates are advised, in their own interest, to refer to the brief profiles of the admitting institutes and departments at their respective websites. Applicants should note that they have to apply for admission by sending an Application Form for Admission (henceforth called Admission Form) only to the Organizing Institute (IIT Delhi).

    An applicant can apply to one or more academic programmes corresponding to the test paper(s) in which he/she has qualified, subject to fulfillment of the minimum educational qualifications and the eligibility requirements of the Admitting Institute(s). For the academic session 2013-14, the following admission procedure shall be followed for all the programmes at the IISc Bangalore & IITs covered under JAM 2013.

    (i) After JAM 2013 results are announced, a qualified candidate will have to apply on the prescribed Admission Form to the Organizing Institute (IIT Delhi) only, irrespective of the IISc Bangalore & IITs where he/she desires to seek admission. The application form(s) for admission will be sent along with the Score Card to the qualified candidates and can also be downloaded from the website of the Organizing Institute (IIT Delhi).

    (ii) Irrespective of whether a candidate has qualified in one or two test papers, he/she needs to send only one duly completed Admission Form listing all the programmes at the IISc Bangalore & IITs (along with the order of preferences) to which the admission is sought.

    (iii) The duly completed Admission Form along with the required enclosures must be sent by the applicant to the Organizing Chairman, JAM 2013, IIT Delhi, Hauz Khas, Delhi - 110 016, along with a Demand Draft of Rs.300/- (Rupees Three Hundred only), drawn in favour of “Chairman, JAM, IIT Delhi”, payable at Delhi, as a non-refundable processing fee. The Admission Form will not be considered if it is found incomplete in any respect or if it is not accompanied by a Demand Draft of Rs. 300/- and the candidate will not be considered for admission irrespective of his/her eligibility for any programme(s) for which Admission Form has been submitted. Also, a candidate will be considered for admission only to the programme(s), given in his/her Admission Form. The last date for receiving the completed Admission Form along with Demand Draft of Rs. 300/- at the Organizing Institute (IIT Delhi) is 30 April, 2013.

This amount will be transferred to the Admitting Institute and this will be adjusted at the time of registration.

    (vi) If seats remain vacant after the admission process is over based on the First Admission List, the Organizing Institute will prepare second admission list. This second list will be announced by the Organizing Institute and admission offers based on this list, if any, will be sent by the Admitting Institute(s) to the candidates concerned. The candidates offered admission through the second list must report directly to the admitting institute on the date of semester registration. With that the admission process based on JAM 2013 will come to an end.

However, he/she will remain on the waiting list for all of his/her higher preferences (if any). Eligible candidates, who are not allotted any seat in the First Admission List, will remain on the waiting list in the next round of admissions. If a candidate fails to accept an admission offer, he/she will not be considered further in the admission process.

    Note:

    (a) Verification of minimum educational qualifications and the eligibility criteria for admission is the prerogative of the Admitting Institute(s) only and the Organizing Institute will not respond to any queries in this regard.

    (b) The offer of admission to a candidate will be provisional, subject to the fulfillment of all the requirements by the dates specified.
