ISI Examination Guidance
ISI BSTAT/BMATH Full guidance with proper explanation

The BStat and BMath Entrance of ISI Entrance is ‘different’ from IIT JEE or other engineering entrances. It tests creativity and ingenuity of the problem solver that requires more than mechanical application of formulae. Many of these problems are inspired from erstwhile Soviet Union math contests and other math olympiads.

The entrance has two sections:

  • Objective section containing 30 problems to be solved in 120 minutes.

  • Subjective section containing 10 problems to be solved in 120 minutes

Curriculum for ISI Entrance

ISI has an official curriculum for this entrance. It can be found in the problem compilation that the institute publishes every year. The topics are similar to high school curriculum but also includes some extra ideas from elementary number theory, geometry and combinatorics. Moreover the so called ‘regular school topics’ are tested in highly unusual way. This is the main challenge of the entrance.

To help prepare better, one should purchase preparation books to understand the ISI Admission Test syllabus much better. Aspirants should get the prep books according to the course applied for and study the topics accordingly. It is important for one to buy prep books that are recognised and often purchased by others. The best way to know which prep books to get is by seeking advice from college professors or teachers or even coaching centres. Aspirants should buy books that have sample papers you can solve to hone their skills.

Aspirants will understand the marking scheme better, know the type of questions which are asked, which part of the syllabus do the questions more focus on and much more. Also, solve the question paper according to the set duration. The faster you finish, the more time you will have to recheck what you have done.

After completing your schedule for the day, take out time to revise what you have learnt. Go through the calculations again, understand what you have studied, read through what you have learnt. By revising, one understands the topics better than what they have studied. Also, do not leave revision to the last date or before the entrance exam, it will only make you more anxious and panicky. Revise while you are studying.
