For each test paper in JAM 2021, an All India Rank (AIR) will be assigned to all the appeared candidates based on their performance in the test paper.
Tie-Breaking: The tie-breaking criterion for awarding the ranks to candidates scoring the same aggregate marks in a test paper will be as follows:
Scores in the NAT section followed by the scores in the MSQ section will be used to break the tie. The candidate with a higher ratio of positive marks to negative marks will be given a higher rank. Final tie-breaker will be the Date-of-birth of the candidates. If this criterion fails to break ties, the concerned candidates will be awarded the same rank.
The results (merit lists) will be declared on March 20, 2021 (Saturday). The results will be available on the website: https://jam.iisc.ac.in .
For each test paper, a Merit list will be prepared based on the All India Rank (AIR) of JAM. The number of candidates included in the Merit List will depend on the total number of seats available in each category (OBC-NCL, EWS, SC, ST, and PwD) in a given subject. These candidates (henceforth called Qualified Candidates) are eligible to apply for admission to any of the corresponding academic programmes available at IITs and the IISc (see Annexure-I) Please note that the number of category-wise (OBC-NCL, EWS, SC, ST, and PwD) candidates included in the All India Merit List will be based on the category declared by the candidates in their application.
The Score Card (indicating the All India Rank(s) and the mark(s) obtained by the candidate) will be available for download from the JAM 2021 website from March 27, 2021 to July 31, 2021 for qualified candidates.
