Examination Cities

The JAM 2017 examination is conducted through collaboration of eight zones. The names of these eight zones and the locations of Examination Cities/Towns for JAM 2017 are listed below.  Candidates must specify their first, second and third choice cities at the time of applying for JAM 2017 examination. When the first city choice is chosen, then zone gets determined and the candidates will be able to choose the second choice city from the same zone. The third choice city can be chosen from anywhere India including from the same zone. If enough candidates are not available at a listed City/Town, then the City/Town may be dropped from the final list, and those candidates will either be allotted a centre in the city of their second choice or third choice.  However, because of operational constraints, the JAM 2017 Committee reserves the right to add a new city or remove an existing one, and allot a city that may not be any of the choices of a candidate.

An examination city may have one or more examination centres. A centre once allotted will not normally be changed. A request for change of a centre within the same City/Town will NOT be permitted in any circumstances. In exceptional circumstances, a change of examination City/Town may be permitted, if a request with a valid reason for the same is received in the office of the Organizing Chairman, JAM 2017, IIT Delhi, New Delhi-110016, on or before October 28, 2016, along with a Demand Draft of Rs. 500/- drawn in favour of “Chairman JAM IIT Delhi”, on any Nationalized Bank, payable at New Delhi. Please note that payment of Rs. 500/- does not necessarily guarantee the change of centre. The decision of the Organizing Chairman, JAM 2017, in this regard will be final.
