Application Procedure


Candidates can apply for JAM 2022 only through by logging into application portal for which link is available at the website https://jam.iitr.ac.in. The facility for Online Registration and Application will be available through the website https://jam.iitr.ac.in from August 30, 2021. A candidate has to first register on JAM 2022 application portal, 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 2022 will be sent to this E-mail 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 personal 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 login to the online application website. Upon successful registration, an E-mail containing candidate’s Enrolment ID will be sent to the E-mail address provided by the candidate. The Enrolment ID will also be sent to the mobile number provided by the candidate. The candidate needs to use this Enrolment ID along with the password for all JAM 2022 related communications or website operations. Candidates are advised to keep the Enrolment ID along with the password information safe and confidential.


JAM 2022 application portal provides an online interface to the candidate for interacting with the JAM Administration. With this interface, a candidate can:


  • Apply for the examination online.

  • Upload photograph, signature, and other documents like category certificate (if applicable), PwD certificate (if applicable), etc.

  • Pay the application fee through any of the electronic payment modes.

  • Check the status of the application form: Received, Under scrutiny, Accepted, Defect status, Status after rectification, Rejected with valid reasons, Admit Card ready for download, etc.

  • Download Admit Card.

  • View answers, marks, and JAM Score.

  • Download JAM Score Card.

  • Submission of application for admission.

Candidates are discouraged from making application through a third person. If someone else (friend or Internet café 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 (including signature) filled by another person on behalf of the candidate was wrong, as they did not have correct information about the candidate. We, therefore, strongly discourage such practice while filling the online application form.


After filling in the required fields in the application form and uploading the required documents, the candidate must review his/her complete application form before the final submission and making of the payment.


The last date to complete and submit the application form is October 11, 2021.


Any application that is incomplete in any respect and does not have the required valid documents will be summarily rejected. The candidates must take care to fill in the details in the application form correctly and must upload correct and valid documents, including signatures and photographs.
