I am a bca student Can i join in msc statastics in iit bombay after writing IIT JAM am i eligible ? Or should i take ms maths from nit thirchy ? Or i should go for isi ?

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 26th Jan, 2020
Hello,


For getting admission in IIT Bombay through IIT JAM in M.Sc. Applied Statistics and Informatics one should have studied Mathematics or Statistics for at least two years/ four semesters in Bachelor's Degree at recognised university.

In order to be eligible for ISI exam one should have cleared BE/BTech or any other equivalent degree such as AMIE or, GRAD-IETE or, DOEACC B Level.

Since, you have done BCA, you are not eligible to appear in these exams.

I hope this helps.

Shivika Tyagi 24th Jan, 2020

Hey Akhilesh,

The basic eligibility for masters in statistics through IIT JAM is that candidate must have studied mathematics or statistics for at least two years ( four semesters ) . And you have studied maths for 3 semesters only. So you are not eligible for it.
