IOE MSc Entrance Exam
Entrance examination will be of a single paper of 3 hours duration consisting of two sections.
Section- A is common to all streams, consisting of 50 questions of 60 marks. While Section-B
consists of stream specialized course with 60 nos. of questions of 1 mark each.
The depth of subject matter in this section shall be similar to GRE.
1. Critical Reasoning [5 × 3]

Critical reasoning sections aim to test the candidate's comprehension of the interpretative
abilities in English as a language of business and communication.
Critical reasoning questions measure your ability to read with understanding, insight and
discrimination. These questions explore your ability to analyze a written passage from
several perspectives, including your ability to recognize explicitly stated elements as well as
underlying statements or arguments and their implications. This section measures reading
comprehension and critical reasoning skills in a multiple-choice format.
The Critical reasoning section measures your ability to:
• analyze and evaluate written material and synthesize information obtained from it.
• analyze relationships among component parts of sentences.

h) Calculus limits and continuity. Permutations and Combinations. The solution may require simple computations. Mathematics [45 × 1] The format of these multiple-choice questions varies. manipulations or multi-step problem-solving. c) Progressions. d) Elementary Geometry and Mensuration. Simultaneous equations and solutions. partial differential equation i) Probability and Statistics Counting. These sections aim to test the candidate's understanding of following: a) Basic Mathematics Numbers:operations Fractions. ordinary linear differential equation. f) Introductory Set Theory g) Algebra Polynomials. e) Elementary Trigonometry. integration. Decimals and Percentages Ratio and Proportion Roots and Power b) Logarithms. Elementary Linear Programming. . Equations and Inequalities.2. differentiation.
