Next year, like any other year, IIT JAM exam will be conducted in the 3rd week of February. Therefore, you have sufficient time to prepare for one of the toughest exams of India. But, to get a good rank, you need to seriously plan your preparation. To embark on a journey of getting a good rank you have to take care of three major aspects:

- Effective preparation strategy
- Selecting good coaching
- Selecting ideal books
- Going through previous years papers

The first step for beginning preparation is to know the syllabus and the exam pattern for IIT JAM. The other thing is to be aware of the marking schemes of the JAM exam. Making notes of all important topics for last time revision can greatly help you to succeed.
