@Pranav Chakravarthy Hi Pranav,

first of all, it doesn't seem like levels are determined only by a week; rather, they probably are taking progress (or lack thereof) of multiple weeks (at least 2). If you ask me, your record for the past two weeks doesn't seem so hot no matter what level you are (no offense). If you are struggling to get enough questions right in level 5, you probably aren't ready for it yet and need to stay on level 4. Justin Wong · 4 years ago

Hi Pranav, my post doesn't have much to do with your query, but I would like to ask you(nothing serious or personal, just like that) that did you appear in XII'th board exams this year ? Nishant Sharma · 4 years ago
