    You have B.Tech in Engineering Physics from IITB/D/M. In which year you are currently. If you looking in Europe Cambridge or Oxford are best choices.
    Tests to Take from India, TOEFL/IELTS, GRE(General) & GRE Mathematics. For Internship look at Tata Institute of Fundamentals Research.(tifr.res.in) or visit internshala.com
    Internships or IMO medals are a great help in International School applications.
    You can talk to anothers who applying on http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/india/

    Any other queries are welcomed.

    Thanx for the reply . I have given the TOEFL but not the GRE as european univeristies generally dont need gre scores. i was thinking about the internship because i am not sure whether i want to pursue higher studies. I am very much interested in this field but i am not considering applying for Phd so i dont want to get stuck after my masters in mathematics. Whats your opinion about masters in mathematics?? anyone you

    ThankYou in advance

    Go to the Masters in Mathematics and Cambridge is a nice place for that, Also give ManMohan Singh Scholarship for the Talented Indians.
