ISI is one of the best place in India for academic research

ISI, Kolkata hosts a great collection of faculties and supporting infrastructures (though may be proven a lack when compared to IITs) to support a student in pursuing a carrier in academic research, in computer science, mathematics and statistics. ISi has its issues when connecting with industrial research labs, as the students and faculties are more focused on higher studies, however, the situation is improving over he past few years. The study curriculum though still concentrated on theories rather than implementations.

The main campus of MAKAUT is newly set up so all the infrastructure are made with modern technology. Placements at MAKAUT are very decent. The majority of students are placed in various MNCs. If your base is strong then there are high chances of getting a job in a good reputed company.

what would worth to choose between - visva Bharati or presidency university kolkata Bsc statistics or kalyani university 5 year Msc statistics or MAKAUT (WBUT) university haringhata for Bsc data science according to faculty, academics, placements?

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 25th Apr, 2020

hi,

see from job prospect and career opportunities , presidency and kalyani university is best among the colleges you have mentioned. however in data science related work a master degree is necessary as far industry standards, also you may appear in ssc cgl statistical officer exams, so my preference go for kalyani university 5 years integrated msc in statistics course.

How should I prepare for ISI B.Stat admission test within one or two months? I dont have TOMATO book but I have WBCHSE road to success mathematics book only. Is it enough to crack ISI?

Sonali Sahu Student Expert 17th Apr, 2020

Hello,

If you are worried about score, then first thing you have to do is to calm down. Score won't come if you get anxious.

  1. If you have prescribed book which is needed to prepare for entrance exam then that much will do.
  2. Start from easy chapters. Solve examples and chapter end questions. there is solution to everything.
  3. Solve and look for solution. check if it is correct. if you get wrong then solve it again next day morning or evening. Keep on progressing.
  4. Go from easy to hard and wrong to right.

There is no shortcut to success. It is only hardwork to get it. Practice as much as you can. Take help of friends and youtube lectures if necessary.

Hope it helps!

You can go for any logical reasoning based books for your preparation..


When I went to give my CET exam, I literally had no preparation. I just did some logical reasoning questions and that's it.

In CET , the level of questions are not so high and it can be solved easily. You can pass it easily.


MAKAUT Conducts CET in different phases –

#1. MAKAUT CET – I indicate the FIRST phase – It is usually conducted in April.

#2. MAKAUT CET – II indicates the SECOND phase – It is usually conducted in June. In phase l and ll, around 9k students sit for the exam.

#3. MAKAUT CET – III indicates the THIRD phase – It is usually conducted in August.

In this phase less numbers of students sit for the exam(approx 7-8k students).


As per your 12th result and your category, you can easily crack the exam and opt for your course. As you know, this exam is not so tough.
