JAM 2017 examination will be conducted in seven subjects, also referred to as Test Papers, of Biological Sciences (BL), Biotechnology (BT), Chemistry (CY), Geology (GG), Mathematics (MA), Mathematical Statistics (MS) and Physics (PH). Candidates are advised to become familiar with the code(s) of the test paper(s) that they wish to appear as this information is required at the time of application form submission, at the time of examination, and later at the time of admission process.

The Minimum Educational Qualifications (MEQs) for admissions to various Academic Programmes covered under JAM are given below, along with the names of the Test Papers with their Codes and the Institute offering the Academic Programmes. Admission to each of the Academic Programmes shall be offered on the basis of merit in the corresponding Test Paper(s) of JAM 2017.
