— Physical and Organic Chemistry are important topics with more weightage in the IIT JAM exam. Revision is also very important, you should revise all the formulas in the physical chemistry and from all the notes you have made.
— In the mathematics section, some of the important topics are Differential Calculus, Linear Algebra, Sequence and Series also don’t leave the topics like Vector Calculus and Integration as they also hold utmost importance.
— For mathematical statistics, you need to be thorough with your fundamentals in Statistics. You can refer to the Fundamentals of Mathematical Statistics by SC Gupta and V.K Kapoor book and it covers 60 per cent of weightage so it makes it very important and some of the important topics are Random Variables, Estimations, Limit theorems, etc.

— For the Biotechnology section, the most important topics are biochemistry and molecular biology. The focus should be on learning the concepts rather than memorising them.
The duration of the exam is 3 Hours. There are 7 subjects – Economics, Chemistry, Biotechnology, Geology, Mathematical Statistics, Mathematics, and Physics. The exam is divided into three sections – A, B, and C.
