Title: IIT JAM Chemistry: Books, Preparation Tips, Syllabus!

IIT JAM Chemistry Exam Details
IIT JAM Chemistry
IIT JAM Chemistry exam is given by the candidates
who wish to pursue masters degree in Chemistry.
IIT JAM is Joint Admission test for MSc. It is an
entrance test to get admitted in IITs, NITs, or
IISc to pursue M.Sc (Four Semesters), Joint
M.Sc.-Ph.D, M.Sc.-M.Tech., M.Sc.-Ph.D Dual Degree
other courses. Every year, large number of
candidates appear in the IIT JAM Exam and fulfill
their dream of getting admission in the M.Sc.
Chemistry Courses offered by the various
IITs. IIT JAM exam is conducted every year in
the month of February. IIT JAM exam 2017 was
conducted on 12th February and it was organized
by IIT Delhi.
IIT JAM Chemistry Books
IIT JAM Exam is one of the toughest exam in
India. So, candidates need to be well prepared
for the exam. Candidates must select best books
to prepare for JAM Chemistry Examination. There
are many books available for IIT JAM preparation.
Before buying any of the book, you need to do a
good research on that book. Some books are good
some are not, so, buy as per your research.
Many of the books are also available on
e-commerce websites like, Amazon, Flipkart, etc.
IIT JAM Chemistry Exam Pattern
Exam pattern for all the subjects are same. Below
I have mentioned the exam patter for IIT JAM
exam JAM exam is divided into three
sections Section A- 30 MCQs of 50 marks Out of
a total of 30 questions, 10 questions are of one
mark each and 20 questions are of two marks each.
There is negative marking of 1/3 mark for each
question answered incorrectly out of the one-mark
question and 2/3 marks are deducted for each
incorrect question which is of two marks each.
There is no negative marking for any question
left unanswered. Section B- 10 MSQs of 20 marks
Each correct answer in this section is awarded
two marks. There is no negative marking in this
section. Section C- 20 NAT of 30 marks  Out of
the total 20 questions, first 10 questions are of
one mark each and other 10 questions are of two
marks each. There is no negative marking in this
section as well.
IIT JAM Chemistry Preparation Tips
  • Candidates must follow the below preparation tips
    to crack Geology exam
  • Start your preparation 5-6 months before the exam
    so you can get enough time for your revision.
  • Do not study any other subjects.
  • Make notes of all the important topics and revise
    all those topics frequently.
  • Give more time to your weak points which helps
    you to improve them.
  • Maintain a good health. You need to eat good and
    healthy food everyday and take at least 7-8 hours
    of sleep.
