IISER Preference Order during Application

When it comes to selecting an Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) to pursue research, it’s crucial to take into account your passion for the subject. Whether it’s Physics or Mathematics, your love for the discipline will significantly determine which IISER you choose. It’s essential to note that your preference order should be based on your interests, and no one else should dictate your choices.

If you’re looking for guidance on the difficulty level of securing admission to IISER, it’s worth noting that 

  • IISER Pune is the most challenging, followed by 
  • IISER Kolkata, 
  • IISER Mohali = IISER Bhopal
  • IISER Tirupati
  • IISER Berahampur. 

However, the location you prefer could also be a deciding factor. For instance, Bhopal could be an ideal choice if you’re interested in BSc-MSc dual degree programs in engineering science or Economic science. 

There is no particular distinction that which IISER is great for maths or which IISER is good for chemistry or which one is good for physics it is almost the same in all of them this differentiation comes in the exposure and domestic projects etc. 

If you’re interested in doing a Ph.D. or MSc project, the differentiation between IISERs becomes more apparent.

It’s worth considering the exposure and development opportunities you’ll receive when selecting an IISER for research. If both options are relatively equal, choose the location you prefer. 

However in terms of development and exposure that you will get, we will recommend you in terms of research : 

  • IISER Pune 
  • IISER Kolkata, 
  • IISER Mohali  
  • IISER Bhopal
  • IISER Tirupati
  • IISER Berahampur. 
  • Then you can put a BS in engineering science and 
  • Then, BS economic science if you are not interested to go for Ph.D. 

However, if you’re looking for placements, the BS economic sciences program in Bhopal has the best package than the engineering sciences program in IISER Mohali.

Ultimately, your preference order should depend on 

  • your passion for science, 
  • The location preference, 
  • The family preference, and other factors.
