I was a biomedical engineer. Then I went to MSc in Mathematics and Scientific computing. Now I am in Ph.D. in mathematics. 🙂

If you have any questions you can ask here in the comment section. But before that, please go through my posts on this blog and also look at comments. I am sure you will get your answer.

There are thousands of people who are BTech students and looking for a career in Mathematics. It would be good if there is some kind of group of these people who can connect with each other and can help each other. To add your Name and Email Id click here.

If you are looking for some carrier guidance on what to do after BSc, BTech, MSc etc. pardon me but I am not confident enough to guide you.

A common question that people ask is “what if I have studied math only for three semesters? Am I eligible for MSc?” My answer is you have to look into the eligibility criteria of the respective admission process. When I got admission, neither I, nor ccmn.in – which gave me admission into an NIT – looked into the criteria. To get into most MSc-in-NITs, you need BSc in math. Now a days CCMN admission portal is not allowing BTech students to enter choices of the institutes which asks BSc. For IITs, many IITs ask four sem study of math in bachelors, but I don’t think they ask during admission process about how many sem you studied math. This is my guess. If you are someone who studied three sem math and got admission into IIT or any other institute, please mail me at ravi.hir16@gmail.com so that I can help others clear their doubts.

Hi Ravi,

1. What is the difference between GATE Mathematics and JAM Mathematics?

2. JAM prospectus mentions at least 4 sem of mathematics coursework for getting into an MSc Maths program. I am a BTech and have only 3 sem of Math in my Bachelor’s degree, does this mean I am not eligible?

Thanks

Gate mathematics is mainly for BE/BBtech and MSc-mathematics students. With Gate score you can get in PhD, Junior research fellowship. CSIR-NET is specifically for PhD, lectureship, Junior research fellowship. This both exam are for MSc students. BSc students can’t appear for any of above two exam although they can perform far batter than Btech students.

JAM is only for getting in MSc or integrated MSc-PhD.

Ravi u r doing msc mathematics and scientific computing and i get IIT patna for msc mathematics and NIT warangal msc mathematics and scientific computing

Which one is better ???

Please Tell me..

I just visited faculty profiles at IITp website. You should go to IITp… you can compare both institutes faculty profiles…

How to apply for NBHM exam? When it get held ,in Jan /in Aug ? Please tell!

You will get all info here on its official site http://www.nbhm.dae.gov.in/msc.html

This year exam was on 17 sept…

What is your opinion on writing GATE Engineering Sciences (XE) by a BTech ME graduate.

Is it worth for getting job and admissions?

I have no info regarding this 🙁

Hi Ravi,

I completed BE and MBA and working in MNC.I am very much interested in maths and want to do PhD in Maths from institutes like CMI or any IITs.

Even though BE is eligible for PhD in these institutes I want to get an M.Sc in mathematics through correspondence or distance education mode.as it may increase my chances for getting PhD.

My age is 25.I dont want to go for full time M.Sc at this age.So either I need to do full time/part time PhD or I need to do correspondence M.Sc and then try for PhD.

So plz advise me regarding Correspondence M.Sc in maths

Since you are now of 25 age and you dont want to go for regular MSc, correspondence MSc is a nice choice. If you can read BSc level math by your own, you can appear for GATE or CSIR-NET and get into good IITs and other institutes. there in PHd, you have to attend course work for about first three semester of MSs level math. so no need of MSc at all and while PHd you will get good stipend also…

I am a BE graduate (2011 passout). Actually my ambition was to get into maths line and become a professor and I love maths a lot. But due to some hectic situations, I was forced to Engineering field. Now somewhat weak in Maths as have not touched the concepts for many years for the past 7,8 years. Now working in an IT company and married too. I feel it is difficult to manage between family and software job as it is stressful and a 9am -7pm job. So I get only very few hours to spend with my family and very upset that I was deviated from ambition every time when I think about my future career. Kindly advice how can I proceed further. Also, if it is good option to proceed taking MSC maths, what are all the good institutes in Tamil Nadu (if you know)? (Chennai, Coimbatore, Madurai, Trichy cities). Kindly advice. I never mind if its full time course or part time as my aim is only to achieve my ambition.

I felt really good while reading this comment…

Since you have done BE, you are eligible for MSc in many institute or you can directly go to PhD also.

Your age may be a issue. check on respective websites

Best institute in ASIA for mathematics is CMI(Chennai Mathematical Institute)

others are

Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai

IIT chennai

National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli

there may be othres but I have no idea

If you work hard and directly get into PhD then you can do your PhD with your family at any place in INDIA because admitting institute provides accomodation to married people… for these, you need to qualify CSIR NET-JRF or GATE.

You should read each and every post on my blog. You will get many important info.

Feel free to ask any doubt you have…

Sir I have entered a nat answer in jam as 1.35914(5decimal points).now I came across an instruction that says upto 4 decimal points can be entered in jam.will my answer be treated as correct

I think fifth digit will be automatically ignored by JAM. Yes your answer will be evaluated correctly.

Sir galat hone k chances hai kya ,ya no. Mil jayenge?plzz tell

Sir msc maths from iit delhi or integrated phd from iit khragpur which will be better?

Don’t know about IIT kh but iit D is good one. If u r doing your MSc from iit then for phd u should look for higher institutes. Thus go for iit D for MSc and don’t think about phd institute now. Give your best in msc.

Sir I have issued a obc certificate which is not in the format given on jam site .what should I do

Sir,

Are B.Tech students eligible to participate in CCMN counselling? What should we fill in qualifying degree and discipline?

~~Yes. BTech/BE students are eligible.~~But few institute have eligibility criteria that student must have BSc degree. Dont take this criteria seriously. You can try in these institute. If you get admission in this institutes then take it. At the time of reporting at these institutes, you have to submit documents and that time thay will not cancel your admission because you have already paid the fees.

Few institute ask for only three/four semester study of maths. In this institutes, you can try without any worry.

Edit

Since last two years, admission portal of ccmn is changed. They are not allowing btech students to add choice in any participating institute for msc in math. Only nit arunachal is allowing for some applied math course.

Thank you sir for your insight. I just have one more query. Is an AIR of 396 in JAM 2017 ‘good enough’ to get a seat in NIT Warangal?

Dear Sir,

I completed my BE in computer science and wish to do external MSc. Mathematics. Kindly guide me.

Regards

I have no Idea on distance/external MSc in Mathematics.

I googled it and found some links.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your reply.

Is MK University recognized under ugc???

Sir,

I am B.tech in Mechanical Engineering from maulana

abul kalam azad university of technology, west bengal. I have secured

above 55% marks in B.tech. I had mathematics subject in b.tech in 1st,

2nd and 4th Semester. I had Numerical Methods also in 4th semester. Now, my

question is that, am I eligible to study msc in mathematics through

JAM exam?

You are eligible for JAM. I am 98% sure u won’t face any problem while admission if u clear JAM with good rank…

Thank you sir for your kind reply. According to JAM eligibility criteria, Mathematics for at least two years/four semesters. But I had mathematics in 1st, 2nd and 4th semester. And Neumerical methods is there, but it is also in 4th semester. so, I have studied three times mathematics, and one times neumerical methods. but that happens in three smester, not in four semester. because in 4th semester I had mathematics and neumerical methods both. so, it is not basically four semester according to jam eligibility, I have completed three times mathematics, and one times neumerical methods in three semester. that is my doubt sir. please clear my doubt sir. Is there any other way to enter in mathematics after b.tech except JAM? And is Automation and Control subject equivalent to mathematics like neumerical methods subject?

‘Automation and Control subject definitely comes under Mathematics.’ But trust me you will not need to convince this statement to those people who will be there to verify your docs at joining of MSc (Which happens after you pay the Advance fee of around 20,000). And those people don’t give a shit to look at what subjects you have studied in your BE/BTech. They just want to finish the long queue. And those people won’t be Professors but the Administrative staff. So I will say again “I am 98.5 percent sure that you won’t face any problem”

sir please suggests me some topics in algebra and geometry in which I can do summer intership.

I don’t hv much info info regarding this 🙁

sir,tell me any mathematices course offer after scoring good rank in gate exam after b.tec. it is clear that i can give iit jam then i can pursue in mathematices. tell me another same exam like jam????/

Look at other post in this blog. U will get answers

Sir does Information and Fuzzy system considered as mathematical subject?

Hello,

Brother my name is GURU PRASAD, I am Eee student ,presently preparing for civils,and I am going to take mathematics as my optional subject,i want pursue MSC MATHEMATICS ,so it might be useful for my civils preparation also,so am i eligible for MSC MATHEMATICS..? and tell me list of collages which offer MSC MATHEMATICS….

Yes. You are eligible for some colleges like IITs, IISERs, TIFR, ISI etc.

They conduct their own exams. For IITs, you have to go for JAM-Mathematics exam.

Hi… My name is falgun ajugiya… And I m studying mechanical… In my university, there was maths only for 3 sem… After B. E. ,I want to study maths from good college…am I eligible for IIT JAM?? How GATE score can help??

Thanks

You are eligible for JAM-Exam. NITs and IITs have their special requirements.

GATE is for admission in Ph.D., MTec, jobs etc

I have updated this page. You may like to read it again
