    Interesting ongoing journey at CMI

    Verified Review


    I have got admission into Chennai Mathematical Institute, CMI and currently pursuing Bachelor's in Mathematics. Research is the most interesting thing which made me to choose this over another Institutes like IITs, NITs, IIITs, etc. However, I had already got into IIIT Allahabad, but I withdraw my admission just to get into this institute. Since this is one of the prominent institutions for Research, the main focus is Research in Mathematics, Computer Science, Data Science and Physics.
