ISI 2015 - Forum

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.

Hi.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

Btw which two questions you didn't do in UGB ?? Like I couldn't do the reciprocal AP and sum of 2015

Can you tell me the difficulty level?

- 6 years, 1 month ago

Moderate- some questions could be done in one second and some took over a minute

Guys how do you prepare for UGB section? Please suggest. I just have a month to prepare. The ISI website has only sample questions, that too without solutions. Please help!
