IIT - JAM Biotechnology
#1
Exam is organised every year in month of February by one among the top 7 IITs and IISC Bangalore on a rotational basis .

It offers admission into MSc and integrated Phd. Programs

Eligibility : Bachelor's degree 55 % aggregate marks, without rounding off for General/OBC and 50 % aggregate for SC/ST

Note : Candidates must have passed Mathematics at 10+2 level for admission in IIT Bombay and IIT roorkee.

If you didn't have mathematics in 10+2, but still wants to get admission in these institutes then check out this video. It may help

Exam structure : Total marks 100. There are 60 questions divided into three sections A,B and C.

Section A:
(MCQ)Multiple Choice Questions Contain 30 questions. 10 questions are of one marks and 20 questions are of two marks. Total weightage of this section : 50 marks
Negative Marking: 1/3 for one mark question and 2/3 for two mark question

Section B:
(MSQ) Multiple Select Questions contain 10 questions. These questions may have one or more correct answers. There are 10 questions two marks each. Total weightage : 20 marks No negative marking

Section C :
Numerical Answer Type ( NAT) contain 20 questions. Out of 20,10 with one mark and 10 question with two mark each.Total weightage : 30 marks
No negative marking.

In the question paper, 44% of the questions will be on Biology of 10+2+3 level, 20% of the questions will be on Chemistry of 10+2+3 level, 18% of the questions will be on Physics of 10+2 level, and rest 18% of the questions will be on Mathematics of 10+2 level. You can thus study for Physics and Mathematics largely from classes 11 and 12 books for the same. However for Biology and Chemistry you will need to refer higher level books.

Can B.Tech in biotechnology 2017 passed student apply for IIT-JAM -2018 exam & if allowed where can we get a chance of Int. Ph.D ?
Bcoz all IITs are not providing Biological Ph.D program na !!!

And who can provide us the stipend ?

JAM is for BSc students.
GATE is meant for B.Tech students. You can apply for GATE for admission in M.Tech, M.S and some IITs like IIT kharagpur provide integrated M.tech - PhD programme.
You will have to Clear any fellowship exam Like CSIR UGC JRF,DBT- JRF etc for Stipend in PhD.
