Ques. Which university will be best for statistics University of Allahabad or University of Lucknow?

● Top Answer By Sudhanshu Kumar on 08 Nov 21

Ans. Both University of Allahabad and University of Lucknow are good in their own ways. They also consist of their fair share of flaws. Here’s mentioning some facts about both these colleges I got to know online: The faculty of both colleges are really good. They are highly experienced and extremely cooperative.  Subjects like statistics, geology, zoology, astronomy are considered good by students at University of Lucknow. Both have a strong alumni network. Many consider Allahabad University better than Lucknow University due to its central status. But after considering everything, you need to keep one thing in mind that the institution is not the major factor for your success. It is your dedication and hard work that will help you reach your goal.Read more

Ques. What is the cutoff for a B Stat at Asutosh College Kolkata?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 25 Oct 21

Ans. The required prerequisite for doing a B.Stat at Asutose College is 50% in the 12th standard. Having Statistics/Mathematics in your 10+2 is mandatory. Students who have passed the 10+2 or equivalent examination and have also passed the English test with full marks of not less than 100 are eligible to apply. If you have a lapse of more than 3 years from the year of passing the previous qualifying examination or the cessation of a recognized regular Course of Study after passing the previous qualifying test, then you are not eligible to apply. To determine eligibility for admission to the Honors Course, add the marks in the top four subjects. Marks obtained in mandatory Environmental Education/Studies, on the other hand, will not be factored into the final grade. You must have a minimum of 50% in aggregate and pass Mathematics. Students from the SC/ST or OBC categories need to have a minimum of 40% in the previous qualifying examination.Read more

Ques. Is Asutosh college good for statistics honours?

● Top Answer By Admin on 19 Oct 21

Ans. I have a few friends from the Statistics department. Based on the things I heard from them, I will say the department is quite great. Professors are well-qualified, strict and they never miss any scheduled class. Attendance is taken seriously in the department. You won’t be able to slack off. You also have to study seriously for the tests. Because if you fail in sectionals, you won’t be able to sit for finals. Read more

Ques. Which course should I choose if I get a chance to study at ISI Kolkata, a B.Math or a B.Stat?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 07 Oct 21

Ans. Both B.Stat and B.Math are different courses being offered at different campuses at ISI Kolkata and ISI Bangalore respectively. There are only a few common subjects in both courses.  The choice ultimately depends on your choice and interest. You can go through the syllabus of both courses and understand the topics. Find whichever interests you, you can choose to be research-oriented like B.math students or go for M.stat or other courses, if you choose so. You can apply for only 1 course because the institute conducts the entrance of both courses at the same time and day. You will be able to appear for only one of them.Read more

Ques. What is the future of B.Math and B.Stat students in ISI, Kolkata?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 28 Sept 21

Ans. ISI Kolkata does not provide a B.Math program. The majority of B.Stat students return for M.Stat while some people join CMI, TIFR, IIM, and other such organizations.  M.Stat employees earn an average of 16–17 LPA, and many of them attend prestigious US graduate institutions. There are no fees for the entire program, and a stipend is provided. So, if you're looking for a career here, your future is bright.Read more
