It is necessary for candidates to fulfill IIT JAM Eligibility Criteria 2018 for those who are applying for this exam. JAM is a well-known entrance examination to provide admission to the post graduate courses in IITs and IISc Bangalore. JAM – Joint Admission Test for M.Sc gets conducted by two well-known organizations such as IISc – The Indian Institute of Science Bangalore and IITs – Indian Institutes of Technology. After clarifying the written examination, candidates need to qualify the interview session as well. Check all the information about IIT JAM Eligibility Criteria 2018 on the below article.

**IIT JAM Eligibility Criteria 2018: For IISc Bangalore**

- Candidates (General Category) must have to qualify the UG examination with first class and candidates (Reserved category) have to qualify with second class i.e. 50% from a recognized university.

**IIT JAM Eligibility Criteria 2018: For IIT Guwahati**

- Candidate must have got minimum 55% marks (6.0 CPI in a scale of 10) in Honors and should pass in all other subjects.
- Candidate of General /OBC Category must have got 60% total marks or 6.5 CPI out of 10 in all the subjects.
- Candidates of Reserved Category must have cleared graduation with minimum 50% marks (5.5 CPI out of 10) in Honors.

**IIT JAM Eligibility Criteria 2018: For all other IITs**

- Candidate have cleared graduation with minimum 55% of marks (without rounding off) and minimum 50% aggregate of marks( for reserved category) from a well-known university.
- If candidate is having Grades/ CGPA instead of percentage/ marks then the total percentage will be decided by admitting institute.
