Today (10 May 2015, 10:30 am IST) I gave the renowned ISI (Indian Statistical Institute) Entrance test and found it extremely good. I am inviting my fellow members on Brilliant who gave this exam today to share their valuable experience with us...

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.

Please suggest. I just have a month to prepare. The ISI website has only sample questions, that too without solutions.
Please help!

TopNewestHi.I also gave the test today and I think it was bit easier than the previous year papers.(mainly UGA).Btw I did 25 questions in UGA and 6 in UGB.

The problem with easier exams is that the cutoffs become extremely high... Let's hope for the best
