Applying to multiple programmes

You may apply to multiple programmes.

If you are applying to more than one programme, you need to send only a single DD for Rs. 600/-, whether you apply online or request a form by post.

If you apply online, there is a single form to apply for all undergraduate (BSc) programmes and another form to apply for all postgraduate (MSc/PhD) programmes.

If you request a printed form by post or in person, you may have to fill out more than one application form, depending on the combination of programmes you apply for.

There is a common entrance examination for the MSc and PhD programmes in Mathematics. Similarly, there is a common entrance examination for the MSc and PhD programmes in Computer Science.

The entrance examination for MSc/PhD in Mathematics is at the same time as the examinations for MSc in Applications of Mathematics and MSc/PhD in Computer Science. You may apply for multiple programmes amongst these.

The entrance exam you have to write depends on which combination of courses you apply for:

If you apply for MSc/PhD in Mathematics in combination with any other course, you must write the exam for MSc/PhD in Mathematics. 

If you do not apply for MSc/PhD in Mathematics but you apply for MSc in Applications of Mathematics in combination with MSc/PhD in Computer Science, you must write the exam for MSc in Applications of Mathematics. 

Based on your performance in the exam you write, you will be called for an interview to finalise your admission in the other courses that you apply for.
