Yes, and also see that this year's DSE toppers went to ISI-D, not to ISI-K, this might be due to the fact that the toppers were SRCC alumni and wanted to stay at Delhi at any cost, but though I think ISI-D is good for rigorous studies.Faculty is also good at Delhi.
The problem with me is only that I know about Delhi center bit more, but don't know too much about Kolkata center. So, I really need advice.
i know one thing about ISI K its dat there is no fixed no of students who enter dey decide a cutoff and those who are above it get admitted. No second lists last yr 7 people got in. The cutoffs are pretty much off the roof. Try Delhi or u may come here if u know u r a genius. The interviews have only maths probs and a whiteboard where u solve them........dont come her unless u r sure u will get in. Most ISI K students are ISI bstat students if ISI. The BSTAT of isi is like msc stat in DU. So do the math guys
Some more informaiton :
ISI D typically calls around 3 times the interview calls by ISI K......(atleast last 3 years data state dat)
For instance last year, ISI D called 51 and ISI K 18-19......27 got in ISI D...couldnt find any data for ISI K.
Also, ISI K takes its BStat and Bmath students in MSQE directly after an internal interview or academics performance check.
So, one can assume dat , if cut-offs are same for both D n K , K receives less applications? ( lesser competition dat way in K?.:P)
