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.

Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Are all provisional scores out? Because in mine it shows 0 while I have done four correct questions with two almost fully shown working. I don't get it . I'm from Uttarakhand by the way... Also the year is given 2017. I really don't know what is happening.

RMO cutoff is same for classes 8,9,10 and 11
The cutoff varies according to the state.
So if you are curious about the RMO cutoff you have to specify the state. And for your convenience the cutoff last year was 55 in West Bengal.
I am currently not sure about the cutoff of other states so I would dare not to increase any speculation by randomly guessing false cutoffs.

@Devdutt Kar

Then this year the cut off should be around 26-27.. By the way just checking RMO scores of KV students. Out of over 2400 RMO examinees, only 111 (including class 12) scored 30+. That tells something about difficulty level and relative performance of the candidates.

@Devdutt Kar
–
Yes, official solution is different. But you may still get marks if you have logically approached the solution. By the way how many correct answers u got as per official solution.

In q4 the combinatorics problem I wrote the following solution.
There are at least 13 points of same colour.
Now by pigeonhole theorem 2 there is at least 4 equidistant point with 3 same colour,(13=4×3+1).I have explained the above statement.
How much marks will I get for this.

@Devdutt Kar
–
The picture that i have drawn is only the picture of 25 points.And nothing else.and then explained the above mentioned statement. How much marks for this.

I just got to see my rmo provisional score and I got 8 M. I am expecting much higher, so I need your guidance. Please help. I am posting a brief summary of my answer I wrote in my answer sheet. I you have time please read and suggest me something.

I did Q.2, correctly, applied AM-GM as gave clear explanation of everything. I expected 17 M for this. In Q.4, pigeon hole one, I assumed that there are at least 3 colours in 1st row and showed all the cases. I did more than 80% correct, but at last I messed a bit. I wrote a bit lengthy answer stating each possibilities, but still I expected 13+. Then, comes Q.1, as per Allen paper, it solved it using Tangent secant theorem and sine rule. I did it using Tangent secant theorem and one construction. I doubt if the construction part is wrong, but then too I expected 5M for it. I then did Q.5, I think it would be a false attempt as I used hit and trial and predicted the following number. These were right but I don't expect any marks on it. Then comes last question, I could have solved it but due to shortage of time I first wrote my objective in short on how I will prove it(will make angle in same segment equal) and start doing it. But could even complete 25% of it. Still I am expecting 35+ marks. What should I do. I need your opinion please.

@Devdutt Kar

As the candidates are eligible to apply for reevaluation, hbcse must publicise the criteria for evaluation of RMO papers. It would also be better if scanned evaluated sheets are also made available while displaying scores, so that students know where exactly they have to draw the attention of examiners for reevaluation. Else, it becomes a blind request for revaluation, without being able to e
pinpoint where exactly the examiners have gone wrong in evaluating the papers.

@Suchir Kaustav
–
Yes that's right. There would be some transparency in revaluation. Atleast for people who pay for revaluation, they should show scanned sheets. We can collectively request them on their fb page

@Suchir Kaustav
–
If entire answersheet can not be displayed, they should at least display the problem wise score for each candidate, so that that examiners know which problem exactly, they want to be revaluated.

Actually your chance is almost improbable.
This year many are getting above 50.
The lowest cutoff in the last two years was around 36. That was in 2016.

@Aman Pandey

Hey I got 2 questions exactly correct having the same answer as of the official solutions but I got 0 in that.Will rechecking affect my marks provided my method is different than theirs but is correct.

I have answered one question exactly correct with the same explanation as given in solutions while another question with a longer (yet correct) method than the solution. But my score shows 21. I'm from jharkhand region

There are So many cases are arising on #RMO2018 paper evaluation, some solved 3 questions but got 8 marks, some solved 4 but got 20 marks etc

HBCSE & Regional Coordinators should open up their mind & policies for revaluation with an Ombudsman in presence of the student, if the student is asking for such an arrangement.

There are a lot of hidden talents in rural India and suburbans they have alternative answers but neither evaluated nor understood properly. They are talents but victims.

There are evaluating teachers who neither have a teaching experience nor experience in solving Olympiad problems. Its observed that Regional Coordinators office some times colluded by individuals or influential institutions.

Please share your Your views, why there shouldn’t be transparency in RMO revaluation process?

I agree. The revaluation seems to have become a business trying to collect Rs.500 from the students without any guaranteed clarifications from Regional coordinators. Students deserve a better system which is more transparent. Atleast share scanned answer copies of students who pay for revaluation.

Very true sir
Sir i have found there are collusion’s in between influential institutions & RMO Coordinators offices. A particular set of people are entrusted in the core job of evaluation in RMO Coordinators offices & the Coordinators are chosen as olderly inactive Rubber stamps.

Thats why 1.3 billion population country has no place in top 25 where as the IMO toppers are of Indian Origin.

Certainly, it feels demotivating a lot.. I solved 2 questions correctly and 2 partially.. And just ending in a total smoke of 24 marks.. In rmo 2k18 Delhi region..

Are we suppose to send email to them? I sent money and application by post. Included my email id in the application.
Will everyone get mail?

Actually I did not appear for the exam (because of my school stuff) but I was able to do 2 of them completely ....and one, nearly 2/3 and the other nearly 2/5. ...Can you guess the marks though I didnt participate...[@Dev Sharma? I left 2 ...I am talking abt . Rajasthan paper...

@Swapnil Das
–
I need your experiences about checking in RMO.Kindly help me and explain each and every thing about how's the copies of RMO Checked?or marking scheme.

One of my friends drew a correct neat and clean diagram.He told me that he has also written some steps that might be correct.How much marks will be he awarded?You may tell in range.

@Devdutt Kar
–
0-2 maybe, depending on the person. There are many teachers who have disqualified children from even 0.5 marks away from the cutoff, so really nothing is predictable.

I have a doubt. Do people qualify for INMO if they get more marks than the cut-off or top 30 in a region or both the conditions? And BTW, the answer key for Rajasthan region is also uploaded in the website mentioned by Naitik.
