My final year research project was on the behaviour and applications of logistic regression as a part of my degree. Here, I studied a several possible approaches based on statistical regression (Survey study of the requirement of a teller machine within the university premises for the public usage). Also in my thread year I done Project in Meta analysis in heath science. ( Meta-analysis is a long established method of mathematically summarizing research results. It is a developing field and we are improving our techniques constantly. There are several comprehensive research websites that review the details of meta-analysis and we report them below. In addition, some of our results and our own techniques of meta-analysis are discussed here.) To follow the BSc Special Degree in Mathematics, one first required to follow the Part I and II of the BSc General Degree, and then to follow advanced courses in Mathematics for another two years. A summary of the gradings I obtained in the first-two years ( Full details are given in the Annexure I).

 Research
My undergraduate research topics: • Final year My final year research project was on the behavior and applications of logistic regression as a part of my degree. Here, I studied a several possible approaches based on statistical regression (Survey study of the requirement of a teller machine within the university premises for the public usage). Logistic regression is part of a category of statistical models called generalized linear models. This broad class of models includes ordinary regression and ANOVA, as well as multivariate statistics such as ANCOVA and loglinear regression. An excellent treatment of generalized linear models is presented in Agresti (1996). •Third year In my thread year I did Project in Meta analysis in heath science. In this project I collect data in British Medical journal report in October edition. (Meta-analysis is a long established method of mathematically summarizing research results. It is a developing field and we are improving our techniques constantly. There are several comprehensive research websites that review the details of meta-analysis and we report them below. In addition, some of our results and our own techniques of meta-analysis are discussed here.) •Second year I did project in “Carden’s and Discarden’t method for solving differential equation”. I used “Mathematica” software. I solved more applications. •First year I n my first year program I did project to “calculate volume in oil limits in cylinders” by using C language. I took data in “Petroleum cooperation-matara.” I calculated oil levels by using these data.
