Mathematics is the foundation of this universe. Mathematics has been established as a universal ingredient in the understanding of the world and is the language used in conveying this understanding. Now that we have entered the 21st century, higher mathematics is not just a tool for physical scientists and engineers but it is also of crucial importance to business, economics, and even the social sciences.

The total time period for masters in mathematics is 2 years. The total marks allotted to 1st year in Part I and 2nd year in Part II is 500 each. Department has introduced thesis writing for 2nd year students as an optional subject from academic year 064/065 (007/008) and sixteen students with thesis work have completed their degree. Around 200 students are admitted in the first year (part 1) every year. Currently, the department has more than 300 students including both parts. Seminars and conferences in Mathematics are regular feature of the department.

Admission Requirements in M.Sc.(Master of Science) in Mathematics

Evaluation Method

For each 100 marks subject the department conducts external assessment equal to 80 marks and internal assessment equal to 20 marks. To pass the subject, the students must acquire minimum marks of 32(out of 80) in external board assessment and an 8(out of 20) in the external assessment. The internal mark is determined by your professor on the basis of completed assignments, tests, attendance, class performance and participation.

For the external exam, you have to appear exams and solve the given question set. The total number of questions in a set is 10 and you can choose to solve 4 of them from “or” part. But the examinee must attempt to solve all the questions including the subjective ones which include implying theorems, proving statements from a conceptualized viewpoint.
