PGT exam or the Post Graduate Teacher exam is conducted to test one’s skills and recruit candidates to teach for high school students in India. This test is conducted for two hours through an offline and objective mode of questioning. The subjects in the test largely depend on the candidate’s previous education and areas of interest.

In this article, we will look into the complete PGT exam Maths and Science syllabus, which will give you better clarity on how to plan and prepare for the test.
Mathematics Syllabus for PGT Exam
Most of the Mathematics topics in the PGT exam Maths syllabus are mentioned below:
- Relations and Functions
- Principle of Mathematical Induction
- Permutations and Combinations
- Complex Numbers
- Linear Inequalities
- Binomial Theorem
- Sequence and Series
