Hello Jyotsna, There is nothing like syllabus for IELTS exam. It is just a proficiency test for english language. There are 4 sections in the test: Reading, writing, speaking and listening. For the reading section, there would be an unseen passage and some questions related to that, you would need to find answers from the passage. for the listening section, you would have to answer the question based on the sound clip you hear. For the writing section, you would be needed to write two essays on the topic given. As for the speaking test, you would have to talk face to face with the instructor for about 12-15 minutes in english. I have given computer delivered IELTS myself and scored 7.0 in first attempt. I didn't do any coaching or read anything. Although i am going to give you official link for the practice tests:

Dear Mourima, the syllabus for JEXPO will be roughly based on 10th WBBSE. You need to study 10th syllabus of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. For detailed information on syllabus for wach subject, please visit our page at:
Few important books for preparation would be:
The DSE MA economics entrance exam usually is held in the second or third week of June. The form filling process will start around January only. Stay tuned with the official website.
Now, coming to your next question, I'll answer it together ie the syllabus, the books needed and the way to approach them..
- Best book to prepare for it is Joe Blitzein & Jessica Hwang . Reason for recommending is that a lot of previous year questions are picked these book . Also it is followed by Amit Goyal in coaching . It is hard book but will take your problem solving skills to another level .Do only first 5 chapters from it . List of topics you must know are permutation & combinations , Conditional probabilty which includes gambler ruin problem , first step analysis , monty hall .CDF & PDF Questions on distribution like Bernoulli , binomial , geometric , negative binomial , hyper geometric distribution , normal , exponential and questions on their mean & variance . Linearity of expectation ,Conditional expectation and variance . Co variance ,correlation , joint distribution . Cauchy Schwartz , Jensen’s Inequality , Markov Inequality , Chebyshev inequality. This can be used for ISI preparation also. Don’t solve each and every question ( just do 20% of back questions because it is too tough ).
- Topics to know are central limit theorem , law of large numbers , method of moments , maximum likelihood , Mean squared error , confidence interval - cases like sigma is known and unknown , CI for proportion , difference in means , , hypothesis testing- How to check one sided and 2 sided hypothesis , calculating type 1 error and type 2 error or power of test. Just need to know the basics.
Book that can be used is Alex Mood & Greybill.
- Use Basic Econometrics by Damodar Gujarati . There are many books by Gujarati but follow the book with title Basic econometrics . Reason for recommending this book is almost all questions asked in past years are from this book . Moreover it is followed in DSE also . You will easily find this book along with solutions online. Solve upto specification error ( I guess it is chapter-13 ).
- It can be divided in 3 sections .
- See only first 10 lectures . Follow Book introduction to linear algebra by Gilbert Strang . Only do portions covered in first 10 lectures
Topics to know Logic , Set theory , Convergence, Divergence , Open sets , closed sets , metric spaces- definition and properties ,open neighborhoods , convex sets , concavity , convexity , quasi convex and quasi concave.
Functions- Domain & Range , functional equations , one one & onto functions , inverse functions , limits , continuity , intermediate value theorem , Rolle’s Theorem , Maxima and minima in single & multivariable , constrained optimization . Pick some JEE Mains book ( ignore trigonometry may be Arihant) , Definiteness ( Use Simon & Blume)
Introduction to Logic
You can do this course for fundamental understanding . It is somewhat required.
It can divided into 4 parts
1 Given utility function , solve for different price level of good
2 . Calculation of substitution effect and income effect using slutsky and hicksian approach.
3 Solve for Pareto efficiency and competitive equilibrium in case 2 consumers for different set of utility function ( very important atleast 4 questions in DSE come from this topic )
4 . First and Second Welfare Theorem . Utility Possibility frontier
- Hal Varian Workbook .Some videos on youtube by Amit Goyal are good for general equilibrum
CAT is an acronym for common aptitude test. This is an aptitude test for the admission in top business schools in India like IIM, FMS, MDI, etc. The exam is an aptitude exam which tests for the following:
Verbal ability and Reading comprehension is as the name suggests consists of passages to read and then questions based on those passages. Verbal ability has parajumbles, summary, odd one out type questions.
Logical reasoning and data interpretation have questions based on reasoning and interpreting data given and answering questions based on that.
In quantitative aptitude, the questions from time speed distance, probability, Maxima minima, work and pipes and cisterns, algebra, geometry,etc.
The exam is of 100 questions divided in 34/32/34. To get a good college, you'll be needing atleast 160-170 marks. Marking is +3/-1.
Hope this helps. Thank you..
All these diplomas are not same, but they belong to same field. Therefore the portions in one diploma course will not be similar to other completely. Some topics might repeat but it's not entirely similar. So doing any of the above mentioned diploma courses will definitely lead you to greater career paths. Choose the diploma based on your interest.
