Rank & Merit List

Rank List

For each test paper in JAM 2010, separate rank lists, on the basis of written test, will be prepared for General, OBC (non creamy layer), SC, ST and PD candidates.

Tie-Breaking: The tie-breaking criterion for awarding the ranks to the candidates who score the same aggregate marks in a test paper shall be as follows:

  • For Fully Objective Type Test Papers: In case of equal scores, the candidate with higher ratio of positive marks to negative marks scored shall be given a higher rank.
  • For Objective-cum-Subjective Type Test Papers: The candidate having higher score in the subjective questions of the test paper shall be given a higher rank.
  • In both the cases, if the above criteria fail to break the 'tie', the candidates concerned shall be awarded the same rank.

Merit List

The results (merit lists) shall be declared at 17:00 hours on 24th May 2010. The results will be available on the website: http://jam.iitm.ac.in

For each test paper, an All India merit list will be prepared. Separate merit lists will be prepared for OBC (non-creamy layer), SC, ST and PD category candidates. The number of candidates included in the All India Merit List will depend on the total number of seats available in a given subject.

These candidates (henceforth called qualified candidates) are eligible to apply for admission to any of the corresponding academic programmes available (Table 1) at different IITs.

There is no provision for scrutiny or re-evaluation of answer scripts. The Organizing Institute will not entertain any correspondence in this regard. The Rank Card (indicating the All India Rank(s) and the mark(s) obtained by the Candidate) will be sent to the candidates appearing in merit lists.
