This is the best time as far as job opportunities are concerned for master's and PhD degree holders in Mathematics. There are various institutes offering math education and research of world repute in India. Typically the road to an education in math starts after passing the class 12. After passing class 12, aspirant has an opportunity to either opt for a BSc degree or an integrated MSc degree or a BS degree or an integrated MS degree.
