TopNewestI 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. – Calvin Lin Staff · 2 years, 8 months ago

Yes, but today I answered a question with rating 1726 and also another with approx rating `1580.... why didnt it increase????Log in to reply

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.Log in to reply

Nope....not at all.... the 1725 question I solved today did not increase my rating! So didn't the 1580 question...Log in to reply

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 Staff · 2 years, 8 months ago

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 ptsLog in to reply

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 Staff · 2 years, 8 months ago

@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 – Krishna Ar · 2 years, 8 months ago

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 wrongLog in to reply

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?Log in to reply

– Calvin Lin Staff · 2 years, 8 months ago

They simply solve problems and ratings/levels adjust accordingly.Log in to reply

@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. – Calvin Lin Staff · 2 years, 8 months ago
