IIT JAM 2018 Exam Analysis

IIT Bombay successfully conducted IIT JAM 2018 in online mode on 11th February 2018. From the latest updates that we have, IIT JAM Question Paper 2018 was almost similar and even easier as compared to IIT JAM 2017 paper. Out of the three sections, the NAT (Numerical Answer Type) turned out to be quite lengthy and time-consuming while there weren't any major surprises in the remaining sections. Although, the section on MSQ (Multiple Select Question) had some tricky questions.

In Mathematics, several unexpected questions appeared this time and questions from Mathematical Statistics (MS) were given priority. In Physics, the questions were a little tricky and were in the same number as that of the previous year. As expected, most of the questions from Biological Sciences (BL) involved images.

Overall, IIT JAM 2018 the question paper covered broad topics which gave test takers the chance to score well. While some aspirants performed well in NAT, others did well in MSQ and MCQ (Multiple Choice Questions) sections. Therefore, the average marking and maximum marks would likely remain just like in the previous year.

IIT JAM 2018 is a national-level entrance exam, which is taken by aspirants for admission M.Sc and other post-bachelor courses offered at IITs and integrated Ph.D. courses offered at IISc Bangalore. IIT JAM scores are also accepted at several National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and Centrally Funded Technical Institutes (CFTIs) for MSc admissions.

Conducted in online mode, IIT JAM is held for seven subjects (test papers) including Biological Sciences (BL), Chemistry (CY), Mathematics (MA), Geology (GG), Physics (PH), Biotechnology (BT) and Mathematical Statistics (MS).

Now that examination on February 11 2018, has been successfully conducted, candidates can check the IIT JAM exam analysis on this page. With the help of IIT JAM 2018 paper analysis, candidates would be able to get insights into the difficulty level of the exam as well as the weightage given to every topic in the paper.

1. Biological Sciences (BL)
2. Biotechnology (BT)
3. Chemistry (CY)
4. Geology (GG)
5. Mathematics (MA)
6. Mathematical Statistics (MS)
7. Physics (PH)

Each paper in IIT JAM is fully objective in nature with a total number of 60 questions. These questions are divided into the following three sections, A, B, C:

Section Type of Questions No. of Questions Marks Negative Marking
