A Answer By: GetmyuniEnterprise,

In order for an individual to be eligible for admissions to IIT JAM, he/she should clear the following criteria:

  • General and OBC category students must obtain at least 55 percent marks in their graduation to satisfy the eligibility criteria to appear for the IIT JAM examination.
  • Students from reserved category must obtain at least 50 percent marks in their graduation to satisfy the eligibility criteria to appear for the IIT JAM examination.

The cut-off marks vary in different ways based on category and subjects.

For eg, the cut-off marks for IIT JAM 2017 based on IIT, Madras is as follows:

I advise you to go on the Official Website of the institute you're interested in, to view last years cut-off's and get a good idea about it.
