ABOUT IIT-JAM BIOTECH / BIOLOGICAL SCIENCE

IITs and IISc are well known fordisseminating the quality education in engineering, science, technology andresearch in frontier areas. These reputed institutes are of national importanceand always maintain their high standards in education. Students always dream oftaking admissions in order to build a sound foundation of knowledge. Thevibrant intellectually stimulating environment and well-equipped researchinfrastructure of IISc & IITs motivate the students to pursue excellenceand enhance creativity.

Students having theirgraduate degree in biological domain may appear for IIT-JAM Biotechnology (BT) orIIT-JAM Biological Sciences (BL) entrance exam. JAM-BT or JAM-BL is a national level online testconducted in the month of February. After qualifyingentrance test and completing minimum educational qualifications, successful candidates maybe admitted in M.Sc. (2 year), JointM.Sc.-Ph.D., M.Sc.-Ph.D. Dual Degree, etc. programmes at the IITs andIntegrated Ph.D at IISc. These postgraduate programmes at IITs and IISc offerhigh quality education in their respective disciplines, matching to the globalstandard.



Grassroots Academy has emerged as the leader in IIT - JAM BIOTECH & BIOLOGICAL SCIENCE COACHING. We have consistently produced toppers in IIT-JAM BIOTECH / BIOLOGICAL SCIENCE.


The Classroom programme batches for IIT-JAM commence in January, June and August each year. The entire syllabus in covered in depth with 5-6 hours of lectures per day, regular doubt sessions & test series and students are provided with updated and exhaustive study material. For outstation students who cannot attend the classroom programme, we provide lucid and exhaustive correspondence programme prepared by subject experts, which covers the entire syllabus along with test series, past year solved IIT JAM question papers and practice papers.
