B.Stat. In ISI
The B.Stat.(Hons.) degree programme offers comprehensive instruction in the theory, methods and application of Statistics, in addition to several areas of Mathematics and some basic areas of Computer Science. It also offers optional courses in some other subjects. Itis so designed that on successful completion, the students would be able to pursue higher studies in areas of Statistics and Mathematics, as well as Computer Science, Economics and allied fields, or take up careers as Statisticians in research institutions and scientific laboratories, government departments or industries. The total duration of the B.Stat.(Hons.) programme is three years. This programme is offered at Kolkata only.
In order to be eligible for admission, a student should have successfully completed 10+2 years of Higher Secondary Education (or its equivalent) with Mathematics and English as subjects of study. Any student who is asked to discontinue the B.Stat.(Hons.) programme is not eligible for readmission into this programme.
Candidates who have successfully cleared the Indian National Mathematical Olympiad (INMO) test, conducted by the National Board for Higher Mathematics, Department of Atomic Energy, Govt. of India, need not sit for the written test; such candidates would be directly called for interview. However, such candidates are required to apply, like all other candidates, in the prescribed application form.
All other candidates applying for admission to this programme, have to take written tests comprising objective type and short-answer type questions in Mathematics at the Higher Secondary level (10+2 years' programme). Based on their performances in the tests, a number of candidates are called for Interviews. The final list of candidates selected for admission to the programme is announced after the interviews.
A candidate who has applied to the B. Stat. (Hons.) programme shall have only one option at a subsequent stage to seek admission to the B. Math. (Hons.) programme of the Institute. Candidates desirous of exercising this option must inform the Dean of Studies of their decisions either in writing or by sending an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) so as to reach him latest by May, 2013.
The three-year programme consists of a total of thirty courses distributed as five courses per semester. Three of the thirty courses are Elective and the rest are compulsory courses.

The list of all the credit courses during the six semesters of the programme is given below.
Semester I : Statistical Methods I, Probability Theory I, Analysis I, Vectors & Matrices I, Computational Techniques & Programming I, Remedial English (non-credit).
Semester II : Statistical Methods II, Probability Theory II, Analysis II, Vectors & Matrices II, Computational Techniques & Programming II.
Semester I : Statistical Methods III, Probability Theory III, Analysis III, C & Data Structures, Elective Course I.
Semester II : Statistical Methods IV, Elements of Algebraic Structures, Economic Statistics & Official Statistics, Demography (half semester) and SQC & OR (half semester), Elective Course II.
