The Joint Admission test for Masters (JAM) is an admission test to M.Sc. and other post-B.Sc. programs at the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs). From the Academic Session 2004 - 2005, IITs have started conducting a Joint Admission test for M.Sc. The main objective of JAM is to provide admissions to various M.Sc., M.Sc.-Ph.D. Dual degree and other post-B.Sc. programs based on the performance in a single test and 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.
