25, March 2007 (Sunday)

Joint Admission Test 2007 is a combined entrance test conducted for admission to MSc. programmes in all the Indian Institutes of Technology (Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras and Roorkee)

The Master of Science and other post-B.Sc. programmes at the IITs offer high quality post-graduate education in respective disciplines, comparable to the best in the world. The current pace of advancement of technology needs a coherent back up of basic science education and research.

The vibrant academic ambience and research infrastructure of the IITs motivate the students to pursue R&D careers in frontier areas of basic sciences as well as interdisciplinary areas of science and technology.

From the Academic Session 2004-2005, Indian Institutes of Technology have started conducting a Joint Admission Test to M.Sc. (JAM) for admission to M.Sc. and other post-B.Sc. programmes at the IITs.

The main objective of JAM is to revive and consolidate 'Science' as a career option for bright students from across the country and provide them a single step opportunity for admission to some of the postgraduate programmes offered at the IITs. In due course, JAM is also expected to become a benchmark for normalizing undergraduate level science education in the country.

Joint Admission Test to M.Sc. (JAM) 2007 will be held on March 25, 2007 (Sunday) for admission to Two year M.Sc. programmes in all IITs, Three year post-B.Sc. programmes (M.Tech. in Applied Geophysics and MCA) at IIT Roorkee and M.Sc.-Ph.D. Dual Degree programme in Physics at IIT Bombay and IIT Kanpur.
