Students were allowed to take statistics as a general paper in B.A./ B.Sc.1st year with combinations (a) Statistics, Physics and Mathematics and(b) Statistics, Economics and Mathematics. Now the department is thinking to offer one more combination viz. Statistics, Computer Sc. and Mathematics.So right now Statistics is taught in Class XI, XII and B.A./B.Sc. course. Demand of Statistics in the job market is on the rise as all the Business Organizations (both domestic and international) are in need of statisticians for analytical purpose. Looking at this the department is planning to hold some workshops also so that students can participate and acquaint themselves with the rising trend and coverage of statistics.
