My rating did not increase?

Why does this happen- I have a current rating of 1612 in combinatorics.... recently i solved 2 problems of ratings 1725 and 1589 in combinatorics.... but my rating did not increase at all....please help as to why this is happening. OF course, i too want my rating to increase.... @ brilliant staff

I see that one day ago, your rating was 1530, and it is now 1610 after you answered those 3 questions correctly. Answering the question with rating of 1725 provided the greatest boost to your ratings.

I answered only 1 question that day., That gave me a boost of 80 pts but that doesnt give any reason for my rating not increasing today...please elaborate @Calvin Lin

Yes, but today I answered a question with rating 1726 and also another with approx rating `1580.... why didnt it increase???? @Calvin Lin

From what I can see, your ratings did increase each time that you answered the question correctly. The easy questions increased your ratings by 3 and 5 respectively.

@Calvin Lin Nope....not at all.... the 1725 question I solved today did not increase my rating! So didn't the 1580 question... @Calvin Lin

@Krishna Ar The first question that you answered increased your rating from 1527 to 1604.
The second question that you answered increased your rating from 1604 to 1607.
The third question that you answered increased your rating from 1607 to 1612.

If you are referring to the "congrats your rating increased to XXX", then it only shows your current rating. This might explain why you think that only the first question increased your rating.

@Calvin Lin OK. But why did my ratings increase only by such small amounts in the second and third cases? Those two questions were of a rating greater than my rating...so naturally my rating should have increased by 20-25 pts and not by 4-6 pts @Calvin Lin

@Krishna Ar As I look into your history, I am unable to find what you claim. Can you link me to the 2 questions that you are referring to?

Please provide further information, like the date (timeframe) that is involved, the question title (a link would be appreciated), if you answered the question correctly or wrongly, and the change in rating that you experienced. Please be as specific as you can, as that helps me trace down the issue.

@Calvin Lin https://brilliant.org/mathematics-problem/how-many-even-integers/?group=PdKgUpayNBd1- this is the 1725 question i solved today... and the other is https://brilliant.org/mathematics-problem/gabriels-odd-numbers/?group=QwrhoKKYLrCu- the 1580 question././//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// AH! there's where you go wrong @Calvin Lin - i had also solved two level 2 problems y'day. that perhaps increased my ratings by 2's or 3's. what about the level 3 problems I solved today? please grant justice :P both the questions were solved today....the questions titles are- "how many even integers" and " gabriel's odd integers"/// please check and revert back. thanks... i am sure my rating did not increase absolutely for these 2 questions

@Calvin Lin Hey again sir. You said that now u don't have a level test. So how do new users get their levels in a particular topic?

Kushagra Sahni - 3 years, 5 months ago

@Kushagra Sahni They simply solve problems and ratings/levels adjust accordingly.

@Kushagra Sahni could you post a solution to your polynomial question- "KUSHAGRA'S POLYNOMIAL" please? @Kushagra Sahni

@Calvin Lin @Calvin Lin - Could you please tell me when a change in my rating would occur??????

@Calvin Lin Thanks. Hope some change happens to my rating.

@Krishna Ar The level 3 problem that you did was part of the Practice section, which do not affect ratings.

We have updated it so that only BrilliantSquared members can access the relevant Practice sections through the activity feed or other links.

@Calvin Lin Hey calvin sir. Hope this letter finds u in d best of your health. I have had a fabulous experience on brilliant of late and if 1 change is made according to me it would b the best site ever. I wanted to tell u that my combinatorics rating is not the appropriate measure of my abilities. I mean I shud be a level 3 or 4 in combinatorics but am a level 2 I wanted to give the level test that we give after we r new to brilliant bcoz that day I didn't give the level test seriously although I knew the answers. So I just wanted to give the level test again so that I m a level 3 in combinatorics. I would be obliged if u enable this feature of giving a level test again if possible or tell me appropriate ways to solve the problem. Thank you

Yours Sincerely,

Kushagra Sahni

@Kushagra Sahni @Kushagra Sahni As you solve problems, your ratings and level will increase. You can also choose to view "Level 4 problems" in combinatorics, by going to the tag #Combinatorics, and select "Near Level 4: Harder".

We no longer have a "level test", and there was no way to retake it.
