TU IOE MSc Entrance Syllabus for M.Sc. in Applied Mathematics (AM) Stream


February 09, 2023

AM is the entrance stream for enrollment in the M.Sc in Applied Mathematics program. 

The M.Sc. Entrance examination will be “Computer Based Examination” of two hours duration, consisting of two sections. Section- A consists of 45 questions for 50 marks. While Section-B consists of stream specialized course with 50 questions of 1 mark each. Each question will be of objective type with multiple choice answers and negative marking for each wrong answer is 10%.
