  • Students in the final year of the B.A./B.Sc. programme expecting to complete the course by July 2018 with a first class (or, in case of an honours program, at least a second class).
  • Students with a good academic record who have already completed, or expect to complete by July 2018, one year of a recognized M.Sc. program in mathematics.
  • Students who have completed, or expect to complete by July 2018, three or four years of a five-year integrated M.Sc. programme in mathematics with cumulative marks/grade equivalent to a first class.
