Bachelor of Mathematics:
Click here for B. Math. Brochure The B.Math.(Hons.) degree programme offers comprehensive instruction in basic mathematics along with rudimentary courses in probability, Statistics, Computing and Physics. It is so designed that on successful completion, the students would be able to pursue higher studies in the areas of Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science, Mathematical Physics etc. or take up a career in applications of Mathematics. The total duration of the B.Math.(Hons.) programme is three years. In order to be eligible for admission, a student should have successfully completed 10+2 years of Higher Secondary Education (or its equivalent) with Mathematics and English as subjects of study. Each candidate applying for admission to this programme has to take a selection test comprising objective type and shortanswer type questions in Mathematics at the Higher Secondary level (10+2 years' programme). Based on performance in the tests, a selected list of candidates are called for Interviews. The final list of candidates selected for admission to the programme is announced after the interviews. Students admitted to this course will be given initially a stipend, which is, at present Rs.800/- only per month and an annual contingency grant of Rs.1500/- only. Students are not required to pay any fees. Students will be warned at the end of each semester if the performance is unsatisfactory and in which case his/her stipend may be withdrawn fully or partially.

This will be notified in major English dailies. You may also check out www.isical.ac.in/~deanweb. |

Master of Mathematics
Click here for M. Math. Brochure The M. Math. Programme offers advanced level training in Mathematics. On successful completion of the course, students would be able to pursue a research/academic career in Mathematics. Depending on the choice of the optional subjects, the students would also be able to work in the fields of Probability Theory and Theoretical Computer Science. The total duration of the M. Math. Programme is two years. In order to be eligible for admission to the M. Math. programme, a student must either have a three-year B. Sc. Degree or a B. E. / B. Tech. degree with Mathematics as a full subject of study and an exceptionally strong background in Analysis and Abstract Algebra or have a B. Stat. / B. Math. degree of the Indian Statistical Institute. Students with B. Math. (Hons.) degree from the Indian Statistical Institute are offered direct admission to the M. Math. programme without any selection test and interview. For other eligible candidates, including students with B. Math. (Pass) degree from the Indian Statistical Institute, selection for admission to the M. Math. programme is based on academic record, performance in written selection tests and subsequent interview. The selection tests will comprise of objective and/or short-answer type questions in Mathematics at a level corresponding roughly to the Mathematics Honours/Mathematics Major of Indian Universities, with special emphasis on Real Analysis, Linear and Abstract Algebra. Students admitted to this course will be given initially a stipend, which is, at present Rs.1200/- only per month and an annual contingency grant of Rs.2000/- only. Students are not required to pay any fees. Students will be warned at the end of each semester if the performance is unsatisfactory and in which case his/her stipend may be withdrawn fully or partially.

The M.Stat. programme offers advanced level training in theory, methods and applications in statistics along with specilised training in selected area related to statistics or in some selected fields of statistics. Depending the area of specialisation, students on successful completion of the programe will be able to work competently as statisticians and specialists in Government departments, research institutions, and industrial and commercial enterprises.
The duration of the course is two years. The M.Stat. programme is offered in two streams : S-Stream : The curriculum for the S-Stream is designed for students with knowledge in statistics at an advanced level corresponding to three-year Bachelor's degree programme and knowledge in mathematics at Bachelor's degree level. M-Stream : The curriculum for the M-Stream is designed for students with knowledge in mathematics at an advanced level course corresponding to a three-year Bachelor's degree programe; knowledge in statistics is not assumed. (Currently this course is not being offered.) Specialised courses are offered for both the streams in the second year of the programme. Three years Bachelor's degree with mathematics and statistics as full subjects. Those without statistics may be considered for admission if they have outstanding ability in mathematics. For both S-stream and M-stream, selection is based on: A test comprising of objective and/or short-answer questions in mathematics at Bachelor's degree level and; A test comprising of objective and/or short-answer questions in mathematics at an advanced level corresponding to a three-year Bachelor's degree programme; more importantly, this test will assess competence in the theory and methods of statistics, and comprehension in mathematics, as the case may be. Students with B.Stat.(Hons) degree from the Indian Statistical Institute are offered direct admission to the first year of M.Stat S-stream without any selection test and interview. Other eligible candidates, including students with B.Stat (Pass) degree from the Indian Statistical Institute, are selected on the basis of academic records and performance in selection tests and subsequent interview. Students who have successfully completed the Statistician's Diploma/ Senior Diploma in Statistics of the Indian Statistical Institute are eligible to apply for admission to the second year of the M.Stat. programme. Students admitted to this course will be given initially a stipend, which is, at present Rs.1200/- only per month and an annual contingency grant of Rs.2000/- only. Students are not required to pay any fees. Students will be warned at the end of each semester if the performance is unsatisfactory and in which case his/her stipend may be withdrawn fully or partially.
