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 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?

I got 33. I am a KVian from Bangalore region and studying in class 11th. Are there any chance of getting selected for INMO and what could be the cutoff for me...???
Please let me know.

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..

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.

Is it worth getting revaluation done when the score shown is 0? I could solve 2 completely and attempted 2 more, so I feel I should have scored more. Has revaluation helped anyone in such a case?
I am from UP state.

I have heard that if revaluation request is on frivolous grounds (in your request letter you have to clearly specify, question wise , why you think your score is much below what you deserve) , they may get irritated, scrutinize your paper more closely, and if required even downgrade your score. So you have to be very sure. It should not be a routine request just to test your luck.

@D K

I will try calling him tomorrow. Don't know if he will take my call. He could have taken since you know him. But will try.
I wish he give close attention and consider I have solved those despite in class 8.

@Ambica Jain

No I haven't sent for re evaluation but I have done 3.5-4 questions correct , I am thinking of re evaluation . I have heard cases where people getting 29 marks got 63 in actual,there may be any technical issue regarding publishment of results sot is better to apply for reevaluation.

@Suchir Kaustav

How much he will reduce from 0.ha ah but it will not reduce your score until it's exception that he find a major error in your method.

@Aman Pandey

Okay.I am also appearing for NSEA.Suggest me some tips for that,Well I too love both of them that's why I had my classic mechanics level 5 and electricity and magnetism level 4 in brilliant.

@Suchir Kaustav
–
If you tell it then i can suggest you some.I know you will consider me a 10th grader but i dont seem to be.My briliant levels also show that.So i think i am qualified to answer your question.

@Suchir Kaustav
–
Ok first start doing concept of physics by hc Verma.Its a conceptual book and you can study it by own.Do attempt NSEA too if you are appearing for NSEP.After this when you will come to class 11th you should be able to finish your 11th.Till November just focus on major topics of class 12th but this time do practice from the books which are suitable for physics olympiads like I.E. Irodov,SS Krotov.
Warning:Before attempting physics olympiad books ensure that you arare done with nicest of class 11th and 12th and hc Verma.IE irodov and SS krotov are only for INPHO and OCSC.You can skip Modern physics if you want.Also Some mechanical properties of matter is also worth of skipping.Do cover major topics like-Whole Electrostatics with hc Verma and full geometrical optics except young double silt experiment.In All you just follow your coaching modules to get through NSEP in 11th.

@D K
–
Hey bro because hc Verma theory sucks and irodov has no theory 😂😂 just hard problems. The best book for nsep is resnick halliday. And yo for astronomy you can check out YouTube videos on crash course astronomy. Ita just amazing.

@Aman Pandey
–
He's my personal relative and he told me that he has reduced by around 60 marks for skipping 3 major reasons and the marking scheme was according to that.

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

@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'm sorry to say... but Nikhil you have no chances of qualifying! 😔
Do you speak Telugu?... I'm asking cause I'm from Andhra, but I'm studying in Mysore...

Ask in your school or Centre .If u r not able to know ur score then visit to the rmo website and send a complain to hbcse regarding it through email.Contact your regional coordinator.He will assist you.

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.

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.

@D K
–
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.

Is the provisional score of rmo declared? I got 24 in that from Jharkhand region. Is there any chance of qualifying? I study in class 10 but according to its answer key I have 4 answers right.What should I do?
