strategy for entrance exam in Delhi university in m. sc statistics it should subjective preparation.. or focus on numerical more

prerna vats 29th Feb, 2020

Hello dear student !

Delhi University is one of the renowned universities of India. For admission in MSc statistics,  there is an entrance examination by Delhi University. We can't predict the question paper and can't tell by surity that which part you need to focus more. But by observing the previous year's question papers, it has been observed that the numerical portion is quite much so you need to practice it more and more. Also theoretical study should be in smart way. You can get the basic idea by going through and solving the previous year's papers for the same.

Hope this will help you

All the best
