FAQs on IIT JAM Mathematics 2019 Past Year Paper - Past Year Papers of IIT JAM Mathematics

1. What is the exam pattern for IIT JAM Mathematics 2019?
Ans. The IIT JAM Mathematics 2019 exam consisted of a total of 60 questions, divided into three sections - Section A, Section B, and Section C. Section A had 10 multiple-choice questions with one or more correct options, Section B had 10 multiple-choice questions with only one correct option, and Section C had 40 numerical answer type questions.
2. Can you provide a sample question from Section A of the IIT JAM Mathematics 2019 exam?
Ans. Sure! Here's a sample question from Section A: "If f(x) = (x+1)^3(x-2)^2, then the number of inflection points of the graph of y = f(x) is: (A) 1 (B) 2 (C) 3 (D) 4"
3. How much time is allotted for the IIT JAM Mathematics 2019 exam?
Ans. The IIT JAM Mathematics 2019 exam had a duration of 3 hours. However, there was no specific time limit for each section, and candidates were free to switch between sections.
4. Are there negative marks for wrong answers in the IIT JAM Mathematics 2019 exam?
Ans. Yes, negative marking was applicable in the IIT JAM Mathematics 2019 exam. For Section A, there were negative marks for incorrect answers to the multiple-choice questions with one or more correct options. Each incorrect answer resulted in a deduction of 1/3 marks. There were no negative marks for Section B and Section C.
5. How can I prepare effectively for the IIT JAM Mathematics 2019 exam?
Ans. To prepare effectively for the IIT JAM Mathematics 2019 exam, it is crucial to understand the exam pattern and syllabus thoroughly. Focus on strengthening your conceptual understanding of various topics like calculus, algebra, differential equations, linear algebra, etc. Solve previous year question papers and take mock tests to improve your time management and problem-solving skills. Additionally, refer to standard textbooks and study materials recommended for the exam.
