The candidate must give an E-mail address that he/she uses and checks frequently, as all communications to the candidate from JAM 2018 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 communications may also be sent via SMS. The password that the candidate provides should be chosen so 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 in 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 2018 related communications or website operations. Keep your ID along with the password information safe, secure and confidential.
Candidates are discouraged from making application through a third person. If someone else (friend or Internet cafe 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 filled by other person on behalf of the candidate was wrong, since they did not have correct information about the candidate. Hence, we strongly discourage such practice in application filling.
