This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Well, I am getting 418.

You are a genius! wow! How much are you getting in advanced?

- 7 years, 2 months ago

I haven't checked as of now and neither am I planning to do so until the official answer key is released. :)

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Haha...that's the very same reason I am ignoring those questions related to JEE-Adv! :D

Though, I am sure you will be getting a good score. ;)

- 7 years, 2 months ago

It's all so confusing, because my marks can vary by as much as 12 marks, due to differences in answers in paper 1.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

You nailed it!

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Congrats on your score last year..I got a really low score for mains so I feel instead of following everybody and studying for advanced and then not qualifying it would be better if I focus on bitsat instead.. I have almost 2 months to prepare so..any help as to where to study from and what to focus on ?

- 6 years, 3 months ago

I am getting 403.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Congrats!!!!!

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Thanks a lot Sudeep !!! Congrats to you and everybody as well !!!

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Yeah Man , thats awesome ! How much are you getting in Advanced?

- 7 years, 2 months ago

I got 227 ... nd xpecting 60 out of 360 in advanced ... plss dnt ask y

- 7 years, 2 months ago

I am getting $374$ out of $450$. Given my disastrous JEE Advance, I will be joining BITS Pilani. I hope to get CS there.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Congrats for your BITS results. I personally think you should wait for the JEE results to come out before you take any decision or narrow down your possibilities.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Well, if you see my marks, you will know that there is absolutely no possibility for me to join a good IIT.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

@Avineil Jain How much are you getting in Advanced?

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Not good at all. just 205.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Me 2...around that much..Was your paper 1 better than paper 2?

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Absolutely not! I am only getting 90 in paper 1 ! and 116 in paper 2 !

- 7 years, 2 months ago

I don't know how you define a good IIT, but hey! Check out the past year's data. For a score like 205, (and I think the trend this year should nearly be the same as that of last year), you get a rank of around 1700 (that may not be very much upto your expectations - I can't comment over that), and that gives good courses. For example aeronautics in IIT-M (I only remember this, but am 120% sure, that if you see the closing and opening ranks of various courses, you'll find other good courses too!)

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Yeah definitely that doesn't open doors for CS - anyways, just a comment. Free h, chahe to rakh lo, warna ignore karo ;) :D

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Can you please elaborate as to why i will not get CS in BITS Pilani? Last year the cut off was only 356 for CS.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

- 7 years, 2 months ago

I meant IITs. Sorry for the miscommunication!

- 7 years, 2 months ago

OK sorry !

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Getting 320...seems I am the lowest one over here :D So if NITs/IITs don't look at me, I'd most probably go for a CS in Hyderbad.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

no I am..... 227 ....

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Ah, that's the exact same score I got previous year. :')

- 7 years, 2 months ago

I got 343

- 7 years, 2 months ago

I also got the same score

- 7 years, 2 months ago

What is the difference in the study material for iit jee and bitsat?

- 7 years, 2 months ago

I got 341 out of 450...

- 7 years, 2 months ago

i got 343

- 7 years, 2 months ago

I expect to get Mechanical at BITS-Pilani, and almost any branch at BITS-Goa....Is that a right assessment?

- 7 years, 2 months ago

You call it moderate? OMG! It's a fabulous score! I got 312, and I seem to be quite satisfied with it. Is it OK for an integrated MSc in math? And btw, pls tell me the pros and cons of an integrated Msc and a (BSc + Msc) course.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Thank you very much...Your score is superb too...It can fetch you Electrical & Electronics at BITS-Goa, and it might also get you Computer Science at BITS-Hyderabad..

As for MSc courses, I literally have NO idea about those courses...Im really sorry...But, I think its still better to do those courses than say Mechanical at VIT or SRM

- 7 years, 2 months ago

What are your future plans? Planning to join college or attempting the JEE once again?

- 7 years, 2 months ago

No thanks..I wont attempt it again...Ive had enough Chemistry in my life...If I dont get Civil at IIT-Bombay, or say Mechanical at IIT-Madras, then Ill go for BITS-Pilani Mechanical

- 7 years, 2 months ago

So dude, you want to do mechanical only?

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Well, Its not that I want to do Mechanical ONLY...But, for my marks in BITSAT, I wont be getting Electrical or Computers at BITS-Pilani...And the same goes for JEE-Advance..

- 7 years, 2 months ago

I am confused. All my teachers say that with 374, i will get CS in BITS Pilani, but with my JEE Advanced marks, i will get mechanical in roorkee, and other integrated courses in other IIT's. So, should I go for the tag of IIT or for the branch of my choice ?

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Last year's average package for students in CS at BITS-Pilani : 27 Lakhs per annum....Statistics say everything...You have nailed BITSAT..I would suggest you to go for CS Pilani

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Well that's what I have been thinking. Its too bad to think all those 2 years of hard work doesn't lead to a good IIT !

- 7 years, 2 months ago

BITS Pilani is as good as IIT-Kanpur, Kharagpur or even Delhi....Also, BITS-Pilani is called the "Student's dream institute"...What else do you require? You have worked hard, you were destined to score brilliantly in one of the exams, at least..You have done just that..Though, you may get Civil at IIT-Bombay if your score increases just a bit.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Thanks man. I request you to again check your paper 2 with some answer key other than resonance, i am confident you are getting around 110 or even more!

- 7 years, 2 months ago

But the codes Narayana gave the answer key for is different than mine...Guess Ill have to check the question paper for that code as well.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Im not sure whether the answer keys released by the coaching institutes are perfectly correct...If I am to assume so, then Im getting just 92 in the second paper, which takes my total to exactly 200. But, im not sure..until the official answer key comes out.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Dont check with the resonance key, check with narayana or any other key. they have given blunders in resonance key!

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Mine is $371$. I hope to join BITS this year but I am still not very sure about it.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

God, thats amazing

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Thanks but that score is nothing. I know people having a much higher score than this.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

A friend of mine got 390...and one got an astounding 430!

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Are you kidding? If getting 370 was that easy, everybody would be getting 370!

- 7 years, 2 months ago

- 7 years, 2 months ago

How much are you getting in JEE Advanced?

- 7 years, 2 months ago

- 7 years, 2 months ago

@Anish Puthuraya , @Sudeep Salgia , @Avineil Jain , @Rohan Rao and @Pranav Arora How is jee different from bitsat? Where did you write BITSAT?

- 7 years, 2 months ago

337 is awesome score anish......congrats

- 7 years, 2 months ago

@Anish Puthuraya , @Karthik Kannan , @Sudeep Salgia , @Avineil Jain did you guys choose the EXTRA TWELVE questions at the end? I need to know, bcuz I am writing tomorrow!

- 7 years, 2 months ago

I did not attempt all the questions...Only when you have attempted all the questions, you will have the option to choose the extra questions..I attempted around 135 out of 150 problems

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Yes, I did. I would suggest you not to drop that idea and always keep it in the back of your mind. Seeing the questions and judging by the time that you find yourself spending upon each question, you can take the decision of attempting those twelve questions.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Oh , thats why you could crack it! So, it is better to take the extra 12 questions!

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Ok guys, i wrote it today and thanks for the extra questions advice...i got 396.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

That is officially awesome.

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Congrats!!!!

- 7 years, 2 months ago

Thanks, you too, for having done so much better!

- 7 years, 2 months ago
