what should I do after B.SC(PCM)? I am so confused about my carrier

crazy boy 30th Sep, 2019

After B.Sc you can opt for MSc(mathematics).MSc in Mathematics lies in understanding how different types of maths are categorized. Instead of focusing on a particular type of mathematics such as algebra or calculus, a postgraduate degree MSc in Mathematics allows students to concentrate on number theory and advanced mathematical methods that tie together all the different forms of mathematics they have likely already learned. One can learn abstract concepts used in modern mathematics, and develop the ability to grasp their underlying truths.
