Rural Math Talent Search Exam on November 11th 2007: last date to apply is Oct 10th

More details is at the RMTS website. Following are excerpts from a news item in New Indian Express.

The Institute of Mathematics and Application (IMA) plans to award as many as 500 scholarships in the fifth Rural Mathematics Talent Search Examination 2007, provided the response is encouraging.

For, lesser than expected turnout has become a reason of concern for all. Last time 200 scholarships were given.

Last year, only about 23,000 class VI students, for whom the test is intended, appeared. Evidently, with 6,000 high schools and 11,000 elementary schools, it was way below reckoning.

Thanks to the lackadaisical attitude of the School and Mass Education Department, thousands of schools simply remained unaware of such an event.

The students remained deprived of availing of an unique opportunity. However, institute Director Prof Swadhin Pattanayak said, the Department has got its acts together this year and has instructed all inspector of schools to reach out to each school with the circular. The test would be held on November 11.

The eligible ones would receive Rs 1,500 per year for five consecutive years. The best among the lot also would also get a chance to participate in the Indian National Mathematics Olympiad.

The scholarship amount is funded mostly by NRIs. The 200 number of scholarships is equally divided among eligible students of East, Central and South Orissa.

Cost accountancy, chartered accountancy and company secretaryship

In India people who have passed the exams in these three fields can get very good jobs. However, these exams were not (i assume the situation remains the same) offered by specific universities, rather one has study on his/her own, possibly through the help of coaching centers, and pass the corresponding exams. So these exams are more like certification exams. Following are links for additional information on them.

Following is an ad on Company secretaryship that appeared in Samaja.

Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology in Raebareli

A PIB reports on the setting up of this institute at a cost of 435 crores and when set up this institute will have B.Tech, M.Tech and Ph.D programs and will get the status of an Institute of National Importance.

Considering the number of steel plants in Orissa, the Orissa government should at the opportune moment push to make BPNSI (Biju Patnaik National Steel Institute) of similar status.

Gopabandhu Academy of Administration has a web presence

Tathya.in points us to the web page of the Gopabandhu Academy of Administration. Its great that the web page also has the email addresses of the faculty. The training imparted by this institute is very important as all the Orissa administrative officers (including IAS officers) are trained here. Their current training schedule is there.  It seems they are not trained to obtain information and write proposals. That is one of many aspects where Orissa is doing pretty badly.
