**ISI M.STAT COURSES**

The **Indian Statistical Institute (ISI)** has a world class course for Masters in Statistics: the **M.Stat.** course. Besides the enormous amount of pride and confidence that comes on getting selected for any of the courses, a candidate goes through rigorous grooming and training, and at the end of the three-year long course, becomes a cut above the rest. Not only does the candidate get to work with stalwarts in the field of Mathematics and Statistics, but the student also gets the orientation and mentoring from the best, in order to be the best on a worldwide level. It is a well-known fact that many Fields Medallists visit the campus and conduct seminars, which the students of the Institute are encouraged to attend and interact.

Besides the academic prospects, a student may also get to apply for jobs with high remuneration from multinational companies as a mathematician or statistician.

M. Stat. is a 2-year postgraduate course, the minimum eligibility for admission to which is the successful completion of graduation in a relevant discipline, from a recognized university. The course is essentially about collecting and interpreting statistics.

Social Sciences, Finance, and Econometrics are all covered as potential areas for gathering statistical data. The program involves components such as:

- practical math, like algebra, calculus.
- design side of statistics, like survey sampling and experiment implementation.

Admission to the course is based on the candidate’s test score, academic profile, performance in the round of interview.

**2-year M Stat**: 3-year Bachelor's degree with Statistics as a full subject, or a B Stat/B Math Degree/a Statistician's Diploma/Senior Diploma/Post-Graduate Diploma in Statistical Methods with Applications from the Indian Statistical Institute. Stipend Rs.5000/- permonth (Offered at Delhi and Chennai).

**EXAM PATTERN**

The entry into the **M.Math.** the course is governed by a tough entrance examination consisting of a two-round written exam and an interview.

**For now, let us take a look at the pattern for the written interview: **

**Round 2:**

- There will be 8 questions
- Attempt as many as possible
- Marking scheme to be decided by the Institute
- Partial marks will be awarded for partial answers
- Usually, even if the student is unable to arrive at the answer but the approach is correct, then partial marks are awarded

**Round 1: MCQ**

- There will be 30 questions of 4 marks each
- An unattempted question fetches 1 mark
- A wrong answer fetches 0 marks
- Time allotted: 2 hrs

**There are no provisions for awarding negative marks.**

**Interview Round :**

Conceptual Questions will be asked pertaining to the syllabus

**WANT TO KNOW HOW STUDENTS DID IN THE PAST?**

My name Aman from Bihar, My father died when I was really young and there was immense pressure on me to support my family.

Due to financial problem I was not able to join any famous coaching classes for my preparation of ISI M.STAT entrance exam.

I got associated with Study Alpha Academy in the year 2012. The faculty is really good. Mr Sourav Das personally conducted my classes with his tremendous guidance and support throughout the process,I cracked the exam. Today my salary is in 6 Digits. Thankyou Sir.

- Aman (ISI M.STAT)

As a working professional, I always found it hard to take time out for ISI M.STAT preparation given the demanding nature of my job. So, the meticulously planned online classes, the ISI of Study Alpha Academy, which ran all the way down to the midnight hours, came as a boon to me and many others of my kind.

I am extremely glad that I chose Study Alpha Academy. The faculties are highly knowledgeable and dedicated and never hesitate to explain a concept any number of times, till we are clear with it.
