RANK AND MERIT LIST
For each test paper in JAM 2018, an All India Rank (AIR) will be assigned to all the appeared candidates based on the performance of the candidates 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:
The candidate with a higher ratio of positive marks to negative marks will be given a higher rank. If this criterion fails to break ties, the candidates concerned will be awarded the same rank.
The results (merit lists) will be declared on March 20, 2018 (Tuesday). The results will be available on the website: http://jam.iitb.ac.in.
For each test paper, an All India Merit list will be prepared based on AIR. The number of candidates included in the All India Merit List will depend on the total number of seats available in each category(OBC-NCL, 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 (see Appendix-I) at IITs and IISc. Please note that the number of category-wise (OBC-NCL, 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.
