How to Apply IIT JAM 2020

Application Procedure

Candidates can apply for IIT JAM 2020 only through the JAM Online Application Processing System (JOAPS) link available at the website.

The facility for Online Registration and Application will be available through the website from 5th September 2019.

A candidate has to first register on the JOAPS website, by providing his/her name, a valid E-mail address, a working mobile number, and a password. The candidate must give an E-mail address that he/she uses and checks frequently, as all communication to the candidate from JAM 2020 will be sent to this Email address. The candidate must not use somebody else’s E-mail address, and only one candidate can be registered with one E-mail address.

Similarly, the candidate should provide his/her mobile number because most of the communication may also be sent via SMS. The password that the candidate provides should be chosen such that it cannot be guessed easily by others and this password must not be forgotten by the candidate as he/she will require it to log in to the online application website. Upon successful registration, an E-mail containing the candidate’s Enrollment ID will be sent to the E-mail address provided by the candidate.

The Enrollment ID will also be sent to the mobile number provided by the candidate. The candidate needs to use this enrollment ID along with the password for all JAM 2020 related communications or website operations. Candidates are advised to keep the ID along with the password information safe and confidential.

JOAPS Provides an online interface to the candidate for interacting with the JAM Administration. With this interface, a candidate can:

  • Apply for the examination online

Candidates are discouraged from making an application through a third person. If someone else (friend or Internet cafe person) is filling the application on behalf of the candidate, the candidate must ensure that the data submitted are correct. It has been noticed during earlier occasions that the information filled by another person on behalf of the candidate was wrong since they did not have correct information about the candidate. Hence, we strongly discourage such practice while filling the online Application Form.
