Rank and Merit list
For each test paper in JAM 2020, an All India Rank (AIR)
will be assigned to all the appeared candidates based on the performance in the test paper.
The tie-breaking criterion for awarding the ranks to candidates scoring the same aggregate marks in a test paper will be as follows:
The candidate with a higher ratio of positive marks to negative marks will be given a higher rank. If this criterion fails to break ties, the concerned candidates will be awarded the same rank.
The results (merit lists) is available on March 20, 2020 (Friday)
. The result will be available on the website: https://joaps.iitk.ac.in
For each test paper, an All India Merit list will be prepared based on AIR. The number of candidates included in the All India Merit List will depend on the total number of seats available in each category(OBC-NCL, EWS, SC,ST, and PwD) in a given subject. These candidates (henceforth called Qualified Candidates) are eligible to apply for admission to any of the corresponding academic programmes available at IITs and IISc (see Academic Programmes
). Please note that the number of category-wise (OBC-NCL, EWS, SC, ST, and PwD) candidates included in the All India Merit List will be based on the category declared by the candidates in their application.

will be available for download from the JAM 2020 website from April 03, 2020 to July 31, 2020
