Today IISC sent it offers letters to those who are selected and inviting them to attend counselling at 21 st May 2015( Just 3 days before JEE Advanced). I just wanted to know who have applied for IISC and coming for the counseling session at 21st.

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.

I wanted to go in IISc not IIT but now i have changed my plan. How can they expect someone from Rajasthan to come visit a few days before advance.

Send email to iisc and request them to give another date for counseling they will surely give another date that is july first week.

Hello Ronak, do you know what all documents we have to bring with us during the counseling.

I mean all the medical certificates and other documents mentioned in the Annexure 1 need to be presented at counseling or on 15th July while taking admission.

@Raghav Vaidyanathan , @Ronak Agarwal , @Prakhar Gupta Can any of you please tell me what was the criteria to get invited for the counselling session? I cleared kvpy this year yet I haven't received an email. Did we have to fill the application form?

- 5 years, 8 months ago

First of all you should have applied for the admission into the UG course through an online application form.

If you had done that and you are from SX or SA branch and general category, then your rank should be under 350.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

:( I got AIR 208 but haven't applied. Thanks anyway.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

I am pretty sure that all of us got selected on the basis of performance in KVPY-SA. We applied online for admission into the UG program.

I do have classmates who have cleared KVPY-SX this year, and they have received no such invitation. Although this may be due to the fact that they did not apply for the UG program online. But one of my friends did mention that he got a letter(hard copy) from the convener of KVPY saying something.. but I do not know.

I will be meeting my classmates today as we have an exam. I will ask them and tell you if I get to know something.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Thanks a lot. I got a letter too but it only said that to avail the fellowship I needed to intimate their office before 5th September.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Count me too @Ronak Agarwal . But still for me it will not be too big a problem as I am taking my JEE Advanced at Bangalore itself. But still , considering the fact that it would affect my preparations( particularly inorganic chemistry) , I too sent a mail and requested to postpone the counselling session and told my friends too.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

I was also invited but I don't know if I'll be going.. Its tooo close to advanced.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Send an email to to IISC to give another date for counseling they will surely give another date for counseling.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Are all those who are invited are selected or they are the probable ones?I mean last year all kvpy scholars were invited but not all of them were admitted.

Best wishes to all Brilliantines attending IISc counselling. It is a great place. Sometimes I wish that all bright students should get a chance to spend a semester there at the least to really know the difference. It is a place like no other. It is a lifetime opportunity. When the competition is tough, my advice is that one should remain cool, living the moment with unconcern about the future or the past (cf. karmic).

- 5 years, 8 months ago

i am in st , anselms in 12th this year . i am following u if u could guide me of this exam i will be thankful to u .

- 5 years, 8 months ago

no just techniec mistake

- 5 years, 8 months ago

You are from mumbai right.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

I really wished if counseling happened after JEE Advance.

I think it will be difficult for me.

I will try my best.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Yay, I am coming to attend the counselling on 21st.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

That's great

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Are you coming to attend the counselling too??.

I hope we can meet there!

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Yes I am coming.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Count me in. @Ronak Agarwal . Why aren't you replying? I do not know why they are doing this... Completely screwed up plans for JEE Adv/other colleges. But I will be attending.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Please send an email to dean of IISC to change the date of counselling, I hope it takes effect. I have sent an email, you should too.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Why should I do it in Hindi? And typing in Hindi in English alphabet means that the person knows English, right? Anyways, I thought of doing this too. But they seem to have mentioned it strictly in the offer letter. I don't think they will entertain any sort of requests in this regard. The only exception is when a significant number of people write to them. I will do it. But considering the number of classmates who have already made travel plans, I am not extremely optimistic.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Wait when did I said to write the letter in hindi.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

I sort of assumed. At first it seemed like you wanted to know so that we may be able to communicate if we met at the counselling session. But then we could converse in English, so I thought you had asked me for some other reason. And that was the only reason that I could come up with.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Raghav have you sent the mail, remember you can request to give another date for counseling
other than 21 st, and you should feel optimistic about sending the letter since you are not asking for changing the date of counseling you are just asking for another date for counseling.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

But I am not good in English

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Sorry for not replying, by the way can you speak hindi. @Raghav Vaidyanathan.

- 5 years, 8 months ago

Han, mujhe hindi to aathi hai, par kyon pooch rahe ho?

- 5 years, 8 months ago

I want to meet you friends.

- 5 years, 8 months ago
