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.

First paper was really tough for me.

- 7 years ago

What were some of the hardest questions that you saw? How did that compare to the problems on Brilliant?

Staff - 7 years ago

dont know wat to do getting only 81 (p1 +p2)

is it better to drop a year and go to kota

- 7 years ago

JEE not only needs brain but luck, dont take a drop un-needed. Just take whatever college even good local college. Within maybe 1-2 years you will get to the level of IIT guys in terms of job and all. Or proceed to give GATE and Mtech from IIT.

Thnkx..this is what is called experience.....thnk u so much

- 7 years ago

Same here P1 tough P2 went good. My physics got left in P1 thats why just approx getting 90. P2 Getting again 92. So I should be about 150-170, dismal scores. Hope to get something decent in any IIT. This year I feel cutoffs may drop drastic. The no negative marking of P1 was made useless by giving a tough paper. Anyone has any ideas what I can get in IITs?

- 7 years ago

Paper 1 was scoring i suppose Most students couldn't get much in P 2 cause of the -ve marking in all the questions. Im getting 105 in P1 and 95 in P2 :/

- 7 years ago

But overall paper was very scoring

- 7 years ago

Paper 1 was tough

@Anish Puthuraya @Avineil Jain @jatin yadav @Karthik Kannan @Sudeep Salgia and @Siddharth Iyer ,What were the topics covered in paper1 and paper2? How was it different from jee mains?

- 7 years ago

paper 1 was disaster for me......

- 7 years ago

How much are you getting bro?

- 7 years ago

Paper 1 was really tough !!!

What were some of the hardest questions that you saw? How did that compare to the problems on Brilliant?

Staff - 7 years ago

Sir, the only thing that makes the questions hard is the time constraint. If given enough time, every problem can be solved if one has good concepts.

- 7 years ago

Indeed, I agree. JEE puts too much emphasis on speed and the calculative portions.

Seriously ? Exams like JEE don't require you to solve each and every question but solve around 80% of them correctly. And guys like you I mean you can just complete them given that it is just your day. Still cross your fingers and see what happens. Good luck :)

Dude, paper 1, atleast i felt it was very tough! paper 2 was alright.

- 7 years ago

It was lengthy. Questions were subject style. I did a good move by doing integers first and then attempting multiple option one. I feel this years cut-off may drop for counselling by at least 20-30 marks. What do you think?

- 7 years ago

To be frank, I found Paper-1 was somewhat weird especially Chemistry. Interestingly there wasn't a single sum from physical chemistry in the sense ionic, electro and kinetics.

- 7 years ago

Yeah, that's what I felt after giving the paper! it is very wierd !

- 7 years ago

The marking scheme was a lot more generous as compared to last year's I feel....

- 7 years ago

The last year's marking scheme really sucked! :'(

- 7 years ago

Well, check your answers for Paper 1 on Resonance website (right now only they have put the key) and tell me...

- 7 years ago

i felt there was no proper distribution of topics in any subject.. like in maths, topics like complex numbers, conic, calculus, were either not there.. or were there in amount untraceable..!! in chemistry, what?? ssly, no physical chem at all?? bt yea, phy, was distributed.!!

@Anish Puthuraya , @Avineil Jain , @Karthik Kannan , @jatin yadav , @Sudeep Salgia , @Siddharth Iyer , anyone else who wrote JEE Advanced, please comment!!

Hey, thanks :) Btw my rank in engineering is 71 in wbjeem.. Might be pharmacy in which i got 157... and in iit adv score is 200 :( Nyways i'm planning for eng physics at iit delhi or guwahati(if i'm lucky) or else electronics and electrical at bits pilani.. What r u al planning for?

Well that's nice. I am into my 2nd year B.Tech(ME).

How much are you getting in all? (at least approx. value). [This question is for all of you here]

- 7 years ago

128 in paper 1 n paper 2 132 as per resonance's key n I am doubtful as I am expecting that my marks will decrease...waiting for Narayana's key to confirm.

- 7 years ago

sorry to say man...but you cant get 128 in paper one .it must be a multiple of 3...!!!

- 7 years ago

You're right man!

- 7 years ago

Your score decreased! But why? I mean after the official key released my score increased to 212 from 203!

- 7 years ago

Yeah! Mine too. My score now is 214! Mine increased due to some questions with two answers separated by an OR. And yours?

- 7 years ago

Chemistry paper 1, I got 2 answers right which earlier I thought were wrong!

- 7 years ago

Is papr 1 in pdf available??

- 7 years ago

No dude paper 2 maths was quite good. Lots of questions from combinatorics probability and complex numbers

- 7 years ago

exactly, maths paper was not very tough in paper 2, but i felt paper 1 was a bit lengthy!!

- 7 years ago

Not only math, Chem was also quite easy in P 2.

- 7 years ago

BTW congrats for getting an AIR of $115$ in WBJEEM. What's your rank in Engineering ?

- 7 years ago

Thanks!

Hey! That's my rank in Engg. only. I didn't appear for medical.

- 7 years ago

Ohhh. I interpreted it the either way. And I am currently doing B.Tech(ME) as you can see from my profile here.
