I am a master student in math in a US university and I want to apply for PhD in pure math. I have passed the comprehensive exam this summer, which covers all first year graduate classes. How does this help for my application?
Impossible to tell without more detail. For instance, passing a comprehensive exam at a rank ~100 school will probably do nothing for your application to top 20 schools. Also, this is a very small part of your application. What matters more is your overall academic performance, any research experience, and letters of rec.
