Joint Management Entrance Test (JMET) was the first step in the process of admission to the two year full time Postgraduate (PG)Degree Programmes in Management offered by IITs. Currently IIT Bombay, IIT Delhi, IIT Kanpur, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Madras, and IIT Roorkee offer Programmes in Management.

JMET was only a qualifying examination. Candidates have to apply separately to the Institutes of their choice after JMET result is declared. There is no limit to the number of programmes a candidate can apply to. The results of JMET provide a basis to each participating Institute to shortlist potential candidates for conducting its own selection processes like, Group Discussion or/and Interview. However, calling the candidates for such later process of selection is the prerogative of the admitting Institute. Final selection would depend on their performance in each of the components of the selection process.

JMET paper is of three hours duration generally held from 10:00 hrs to 13:00 hrs on second Sunday of December. The question paper will be in English only.
