About the Book

New Edition with Solutions to IIT-JAM 2021 is here!

Meticulously designed to meet the needs of IIT JAM aspirants, the publication includes curated material to assist aspirants in completing their preparation in the most comprehensive manner within the shortest possible time (about 3-4 months). The contents of this book have been divided into 5 sections.

The first part will have ALL the previous year questions of the IIT-JAM Geology exam fully solved and explained in detail. We have arranged the questions subject wise in descending order of year (i.e. from 2020 to 2005). We have also categorized the questions into 2 sections – simple and inquisitive. Solving the questions subject-wise will not only enable students to have a good grip over the concepts but also help them realize their weak areas in every subject. The explanations provided will bolster revision to the best possible degree.

The second part will have ALL the solved MCQs of the Geology portion in the IIT-JAM Geophysics exam conducted from 2005-2013. This should be helpful for extra practice and preparation.

The third part will consist of 6 model IIT JAM question papers (the first three are fully solved in detail, analogous to the previous year papers while the final three will have just the answer keys). The model test papers have been assiduously prepared as per the IIT-JAM difficulty level. The students may attempt these papers like mock tests which will help them revise and manage time effectively.

The fourth section contains 40 carefully sifted questions for each subject. These questions will test the student’s preparation for every subject and help them build confidence. These questions are challenging, yet important, helping the candidate come to grips with the difficulty level of the actual exam.

The final section contains beautiful photographs that are bound to instill interest in the minds of the reader and are afforded to assist them in understanding the concepts in a better, inspiring way.

We hope that this complete, well-thought-of and organized book will benefit geoscience students across the country in achieving their dream of reaching IIT!

About the Authors

Niloy Chakrabarti completed his graduation in Geological Sciences from Jadavpur University, acquiring first class with distinction. He secured All India Rank 2 in the 2018 IIT-JAM examination. Just after his graduation, he completed an internship under the guidance of Prof. Kalyan Halder from Presidency University and was one of the authors of the research paper titled ‘Palaeoecological analysis of benthic molluscs from the Eocene of Kutch, Gujarat reveals an event of storm-induced concentration of shells in a quiet marginal marine environment’, published in the ‘Journal of the Geological Society of India’. His splendid record earned him the opportunity to pursue a research internship from the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal, Durban, South Africa where he worked on Deccan basalts. Thereafter, he cracked the CSIR-NET exam (December 2019) by securing AIR 1 with record marks (179.36). His feat of acquiring All India Rank 2 in GATE 2020 examination only adds to his ever-increasing list of achievements. Mr. Chakrabarti wishes to pursue a Ph.D. in the field of chemostratigraphy and isotope geochemistry pertaining to Phanerozoic mass extinctions.

Rohan Nandy completed his B.Sc. in Geological Sciences from Jadavpur University, holding a first-class with distinction. Having secured AIR-4 in IIT-JAM 2018, he joined IIT-Bombay for his M.Sc.degree, wherewith a CGPA of 9.59, he secured maximum marks in his batch of M.Sc. Applied Geology. The areas of sedimentology and petroleum geology are his forte. He has worked on “Organic Geochemistry Characterization of Cretaceous shales of Kutch Basin” in his dissertation thesis. He got placed in Cairn Oil and Gas from IIT Bombay. Perhaps his greatest achievement is being the topper (AIR-1 Geology) in GATE 2020 Geology and Geophysics exam. He had also secured AIR-11 in the CSIR-NET June 2019 exam. Mr. Nandy has decided to pursue a career in the hydrocarbon industry.
