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 c**onsists 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%.
