How I Prepared for Joint Admission Test for Masters (JAM) with the Help of STUNITED

Hi…I work as a research associate in IIT Delhi and had really worked hard to obtain my JAM score which helped me secure admission in IIT Delhi. As I belong from the small town of Kolhapur it was quite difficult for me to gain the confidence and required expertise which could help me crack an exam of the stature of JAM. However now students have the option of using dynamic student networking programs like STUNITED which can help them gain all required information and prepare themselves for academic challenges better. I wish we had such platforms earlier and so are using this opportunity as a STUNITED member to share details like JAM.

This exam is the gateway to admission to the best M.Sc and the combined Msc-PhD courses in our country and many others post B.Sc courses and these programs are based on the performance of the JAM test. All students from India who wish to pursue Science as a higher study option target JAM as their first preference. There are many top ranking institutes of the country which induct students based on their JAM scores.
