Don't worry IIM studen't weren't Maths Wizards ! The level of Maths in any Competitive level is restricted to 10 Level , however some advance level topics like P & C , Probability are also asked !

All the best for your career...

I've converted L & C, but my quanti is quite weak. Maths in ISCE (12th) was a disaster with 80% (disaster if you understand the normal distribution, and therefore why 80% in ISCE is ridiculously below average).

I have the following questions:


  1. What is the degree of difficulty of the quanti parts of MBA at an IIM? IIT JEE level? State JEE level?
    _
  2. Are all subjects deeply treated through Mathematics, abstract and advanced? Or are there 1 or 2 non mathematical subjects as well?
    _
  3. During my Engineering, I used to have trouble with Stochastic processes, Markov Chains etc. Are there similar mathematical subjects in an MBA?
    _
  4. What level of mathematics, and to what depth, is required to succeed in the course? Graduate/Engg level, or even higher?
    _
  5. How much is the intellectual disconnect between what is taught in a class at IIM and what is asked in a term exam? For example, if you consider the +2 maths courses across ISCE/CBSE, they pretty much cover all of IIT JEE maths. But the disconnect in terms of difficulty is HUGE! So, on similar lines, are you taught x in class and examined on a hugely difficult variant of x?
    _
  6. Lastly, would this be similar to commonplace maths in an IIM maths class? I'm guessing the answer will be "yes" or "even more difficult", but want to confirm:

    Integral identity for Legendre polynomials - MathOverflow

    or

    square root of diffeomorphism of R: does it always exist? - MathOverflow

    or

    Probability of a Point on a Unit Sphere lying within a Cube - MathOverflow

I'm not maths phobic, but my understanding is restricted to +2 maths, and some engineering maths I remember from 5 years back (I'm a 2006 graduate). I'm wondering if I'll be able to survive the insane maths at an IIM MBA.
