National Institute of Technology (NITs) is always the second choice for students who want to get admission for MSc after JAM 2023.
There are many courses provided by NITs for MSc in Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. These NITs have lenient admission eligibility criteria than IITs. So, BTech, BSc general, and Hons. students are eligible for MSc Admissions through Joint Admission Test.
If you have missed the seat at IITs, then you can apply for top NITs for MSc after satisfying the NITs Admission Eligibility Criteria.
The selected students can check their results by entering the JAM registration IDpassword and check cutoff marks for NIT MSc admissions through the official website.
In this article, we have provided the details of:
NITs Admission Eligibility Criteria for IIT JAM

CCMN Queries Asked by Candidates
Here, we have covered the most asked Queries Regarding the IIT JAM exam. Check them below: 
Q.1) If I haven’t qualified with a valid JAM score OR I didn’t appear for JAM Exam, Can I apply?
Ans.) Without qualifying the JAM Exam, candidates can’t apply for CCMN Counselling to get admission in NITs for MSc courses.
Q.2) My AIR is XXXXXX. Which seat will I get?
Ans.) CCMN Seat allocation is based on the valid JAM Score and the minimum eligibility requirement. Every NIT has a different CCMN opening and closing rank that may vary every year. So, candidates should wait for CCMN Counselling to know about their seat allotment.
We hope now you have an idea about NITs Admission Eligibility Criteria. If you are satisfying the eligibility criteria, then you can apply to the National Institute of Technology for MSc.
