ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
The entrance qualification for the Honours degree in Mathematical Statistics is a Bachelor’s degree with either Mathematical Statistics or Statistics as a major subject. Candidates who have not obtained an average of at least 60% in this major subject will only be admitted to the Honours programme with the special permission of the Department of Statistics, and on such conditions as may be determined by the Department and approved by FMC. The same rules will apply to candidates joining the programme after obtaining Bachelor’s degrees at other universities. For these students, however, the Department of Statistics reserves the right to refuse students with inadequate Mathematical and End User Computing skills.
