  • It is nowadays easy to access education through correspondence courses as many universities are offering courses in various faculties. According to me the Madurai Kamaraj University is offering PG courses in Maths, Physics and other subjects. You can apply online for such courses and there are distance education centers for contacting in person in relation to admission, examination etc., You can refer the website for more information.

  • It is very easy to pursue M.Sc. in Mathematics in correspondence. Any Graduate in Science with Mathematics as a paper can enroll in M.Sc./M.A in Mathematics. As Pure Mathematics is not a practical-based subject, most of the Indian universities offer this course in correspondence/distance education mode. If you fulfill the eligibility conditions as mentioned above, you can take admission in any UGC-recognized university near to your location.

    So far as M.Sc. Physics in correspondence mode is concerned, the eligibility condition is B.Sc. with Physics as a subject. But as it is a practical-based subject, only very few universities offer this subject in distance education mode. Check whether any university near to your location or having study centre in your city offers this course in distance education mode, or not.

  • For pursuing PG in Physics or Math one should have these subjects in his graduation. There are many universities which offer these by correspondence and one can apply and register for same.

    Math by correspondence is more simplistic than Physics as no practicals are involved. So before joining the Physics course one should ensure about the accessibility to the practicals which is very important part of PG degree.

    Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.

  • Eligibility for M.Sc Maths is B.Sc in Maths and M.Sc Physics is B.Sc in Physics.
    Many universities offer M.Sc Maths in distance mode.
    Only few universities offer M.Sc Physics in distance mode.Since M.Sc Physics has practicals it is better to do full time course

  • I am providing the detail as per your question:
    To do PG in physics or Maths you must have the graduation degree in PCM. Have you completed your B.Sc. in Maths stream? If yes, then you can do PG in Physics and mathematics.
    How to do PG through distance mode?
    To do PG in distance mode is very simple. There are many universities which provide this opportunity to you. Doing maths in distance mode is easy and most of the university provide this facility but as far as physics is concerned, the practical is involved in the physics subject. So visit the university you want to do PG and find the study centre for that particular subject. At the time of admission, you have to pay fees and you can pay it online through net banking or debit and credit card. All the university accept online form so I will suggest you fill the online form. The following documents are necessary at the time of admission:
    1. Mark sheet of B.Sc.
    2. Transfer certificate.
    3. Adhaar card.
    4. Bank account detail.
    5. Caste certificate (if applicable)
    6. Income certificate (if applicable)

    Honesty is the best policy.

  • Many people due to personal reasons can not attend regular classes and go for distance education. Regular classes have their own advantage but if one can study oneself, distance education will also be purposeful.

    As regards Maths, there is absolutely no problem as it is a theoretical subject and you can go ahead with the help of tutorials and notes sent by the institution. Pursuing Maths with distance education is a viable option.

    Coming to Physics, it is a subject of great understanding and is incomplete without practical. You will have to find out the correspondence institutions which are arranging for practical sessions.

    There are many universities in India all across the country which offer this course and some of the reputed ones are -
    Nalanda Open University, Dr BR Ambedkar Open University, Annamalai University, Madurai Kamaraj University and Madras University.

    Knowledge is power.

  • If you have completed UG in these courses then you are eligible to do PG in maths and physics. The subject you choose is not so easy you might think especially physics which is completely practical based subject.
