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.

Finally, a 2016 discussion! Let's get everyone over here.

- 3 years, 7 months ago

How much do you expect in inpho and incho?

I found cho quite tough

pho I screwed the 6th question

- 3 years, 7 months ago

I got my performance card , 27.5 I have scored

- 3 years, 7 months ago

fairly well, i'll tell my when i get

- 3 years, 7 months ago

but they say you'll get them by 18th feb

- 3 years, 7 months ago

No I think the last date that HBCSE will send performance cards is the 18th. They told us to wait till the 27th to get our performance card...

- 3 years, 7 months ago

In chemistry?

- 3 years, 6 months ago

Please post ur expected score for jnjso

- 3 years, 7 months ago

@kritarth lohomi @Archit Boobna @Kaustubh Miglani
You too post yours.

- 3 years, 7 months ago

45.35 in scorecard

- 3 years, 7 months ago

Wait...how do you get a score of 45.35?

Isn't the score in increments of 0.25?

- 3 years, 7 months ago

No. This year they are giving in increment of 0.05

- 3 years, 7 months ago

Wow. Did that start from this year or much before? I heard someone stating their score as 40.35 for INJSO 2014 but I just assumed that it was a typo. Last year none of me nor my friends got or heard of a score like that...

And how do you give marks in increments of 0.05? This just sounds silly.

- 3 years, 7 months ago

That was me

- 3 years, 6 months ago

Somewhere around 45.IDk for sure.My subjective depends

- 3 years, 7 months ago

Me too 45 around.

- 3 years, 7 months ago

Expected cutoff of injso

- 3 years, 7 months ago

How much did you get in injso according to score cards ?

- 3 years, 7 months ago

My injso marks is around 45

- 3 years, 7 months ago

I got 27.5 out o 50 in INPhO , is that low ? Is there any point in applying for reevaluation ?

- 3 years, 7 months ago

When did you get your scorecard?

And I don't know much about INPhO but last year I didn't send my INJSO card for reevaluation and ended up missing the cutoff by less than 2 marks. I was expecting 4 more marks than what I had on the card but I didn't send it because I thought the cutoff would be much higher anyway (I was wrong). Forget about if 27.5/50 is low. Maybe the cutoff would be 29 now. If you feel you should get more, go for reevaluation. 500 rupees is worth a shot at camp.

Wonder when INAO cards will come...

- 3 years, 7 months ago

Got my card yesterday

- 3 years, 7 months ago

dO u know about the cutoff?

- 3 years, 7 months ago

No that's why I'm here

- 3 years, 6 months ago

Looking at your marks it seems cut off will be 40

- 3 years, 7 months ago

Post as soon as you get your INAO (senior) cards..

- 3 years, 7 months ago

when will the cutoff come out

- 3 years, 7 months ago

March 14th ....!!!

- 3 years, 6 months ago

March 14th ....!!

- 3 years, 6 months ago

Rajdeep how much r u scoring and in which state

- 3 years, 6 months ago

55.45 Delhi

- 3 years, 6 months ago

Plz post your INCHO marks so we can get an idea of what the cutoff would be like... I think paper was tough this time. I m waiting for my performance card.

- 3 years, 6 months ago

go to AOPS website and search INCHO.There is a thread on INCHO 2016.

- 3 years, 6 months ago

INAO marks? anyone? please post here !! expected cutoff?

- 3 years, 6 months ago

I got 49.5 (in 11th)

You?

- 3 years, 6 months ago

54.5 (senior group XII)

i think there will be different group of selections for XI and XII

- 3 years, 6 months ago

- 3 years, 6 months ago

There will be different selections but I'm worried because many 12th students would've been absent for INAO (board exams around that time, etc). I wouldn't be surprised if 11th cutoff is higher than or about 2-3 marks less than 12th cutoff. And I think 25 students for 12th is a bad idea because most won't attend the camp (JEE is 3 days after the camp ends!). There may be 5-10 12th students at the camp, lol.

No INPhO for me; I didn't even register for NSEP this year.

- 3 years, 6 months ago

thats true! IOAA is late in november i think and that too in India, and considering the JEE matter, there is a slight possibility of rescheduling the camp. I hope that happens, and first, lets wait for the cutoff !

- 3 years, 6 months ago

Actually someone called to ask about changing the camp but they said no, it's final :O

- 3 years, 6 months ago

:-( :-(

- 3 years, 6 months ago

how much you got?

- 3 years, 6 months ago

Everyone pls visit aops website there is alot of discussions there and please post ur marks also http://artofproblemsolving.com/community/c260h1179275s1inao2016_discussion

- 3 years, 6 months ago

Any other news on INOs?

- 3 years, 6 months ago

Nope

- 3 years, 6 months ago

Is anyone here from Delhi?

Do you know the marks of Delhi students in INAO? Preferably 11th..

- 3 years, 6 months ago

I got 50 in INAO junior

- 3 years, 6 months ago

How much in INJSO ? You are surely selected for INAO jr. Which class you are in ? Which class will you be going to in April

- 3 years, 6 months ago

- 3 years, 6 months ago

Wow. With 50 in INAO you could probably clear group B as well. Nice job.

I think he said 48.75 somewhere

- 3 years, 6 months ago

Yup,I saw just now. He is in class 10th going to 11th.

- 3 years, 6 months ago
