# Life @IITBombay

Hello Friends, its been a long time since I was last active at Brilliant. Actually it was before my JEE exam, and after that i just could not find enough time and inspiration to solve problems. However that inspiration is slowly starting to creep back in, and i am sure now I will be more active than I was before. I just want to tell you all that I am currently studying Energy Science and Engineering at IIT Bombay, the most prestigious and famous technical institute in India. Life here is completely different from how you would imagine it to be if you are an aspiring IITian. The level of intelligence of most of the students here is too damn high ! This leads to a lot of competition in academics. One tends to think that IIT Bombay will be all about acads and that students dont have a life. He could have been more wrong. Life@IITBombay is awesome! The talent of students just shocks you. One finds it difficult to understand how a student could be that good in academics and let's say dance or any other activity. I know a student who was in the top 30 all over India and he is a National Level Table Tennis player. Another friend is a very very good dancer and also rocks in academics. Be it Culturals or Tech or Sports or Social services, one always finds very talented people. It is true what they say " IIT Bombay changes you in ways you cannot imagine ! " . I just feel very lucky to be a part of this institution and be among the creme-dela-creme of students in India.

Congratulations! Your hard work has paid off.

Having a group of friends who are passionate in different activities which they excel in, can be a strong source of inspiration and motivation. Get to know them, and then introduce them to the Brilliant community, so that we can all learn from them!

Sir this line - "Having a group of friends who are passionate in different activities which they excel in, can be a strong source of inspiration and motivation". Here it seems that you had a mesmerizing and interesting mathematical journey. I think you learned a lot from your friends circles and whenever you failed in a task they inspired and motivated you.

Can you please share some stories of your past experience and mathematical journey. It would be really very interesting to know.

Thank you ! and sure, 3-4 people from IIT Bombay are already on Brilliant!

What is Zoidberg?

Staff - 3 years, 11 months ago

Doctor John A. Zoidberg (often shortened to Zoidberg) is a fictional character in the television series Futurama. He is a Decapodian, a lobster-esque alien who works as the staff doctor for Planet Express, despite his woeful understanding of human physiology and allusions to his questionable credentials. His character parodies both doctors - for example, his woeful incompetence at human medicine makes him extremely poor despite his profession, and he's implied to be frequently homeless when not at work.

Hi Avineil Jain,

Congratulations for getting admissions in IIT - Bombay

A request

Can you ask the iitian"s to join brilliant.org , we can also gain some knowledge( especially the one in top 30)

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Its actually Avineil Jain not Anvineil Jain :P Ya sure, I can ask them!

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Avineil Jain you know nearly 4 months are left for JEE-2015 , so can you just share your or suggest a study or a revision plan , to be followed from now ( so that we can maximize our chances of getting good ranks)

- 3 years, 11 months ago

@U Z Just complete all the syllabus and leave nothing for the last moment ! If you have worked hard, you surely will get a decent rank :)

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Congrats,@Avineil Jain Very happy to know there are many IIT'ans on Brilliant. :)

- 3 years, 11 months ago

@U Z i dont think u shud worry about it as u have mostly finished many problems in brilliant

- 3 years, 10 months ago

Hey congratulations for ur selection in iit I m in 11th and I m a jee aspirant too Cn u plz tell me how shud I study fr jee advance? ?

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Its a very subjective question frankly although just work hard. That's it!

- 3 years, 11 months ago

The talent in IIT-ians is not because of the rigorous IIT-JEE entrance examination, but in spite of this. Remember physical chemistry, ugh. And nobody in the world is thinking of modifying the archaic syllabus with times. That is some legacy.

- 3 years, 11 months ago

you were always a inspirational personality ! I will try my best to perform my very BEST in JEE 2016!

- 3 years, 4 months ago

Hey, Congrats @Avineil Jain

I wanted to ask that did you did coaching for IIT and did your friends in IIT did , because I am hearing a lot that it is practically impossible to cracking it without any coaching guidance.

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Is it better to take computer science in any iit? or to take any subject in iit bombay which has better placements??.. i m an jee aspirant for jee 2015....

- 3 years, 11 months ago

That depends on one's perspective. Hence, it is better to evaluate what u want and go for it

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Studying in IIT bombay is my dream. Congratulation @Avineil Jain . Thanks a lot for sharing your experiences. This note has inspired me.

- 3 years, 11 months ago

great life in great iitb

- 2 years, 8 months ago

Hi.. So basically my Jee mains was bad..not really bad but I don't think with such a score I can quilify for advanced...so I was planning on focussing more for bits... Any idea where I can get good test papers and other material...which coaching institute would provide a good online package?

- 3 years, 6 months ago

I am a jee aspirant currently in XI can u tell my how did u plan to study the course and how did u study and how many hours daily did u studied??

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Congrats on getting in...it is my dream to join iitb civil...I will be answering it this year...since mains are approaching..any tips for the last two months? Also how did you divide time between boards and jee?

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Iitb civil! Well, best of luck for it! Just study hard, balance JEE along with boards, such that more portion of JEE is revised. Solve numericals that test concept so your concepts for boards are also revised . there is enough time between each exam in boards , just chill! And I am sure I will se you this year in IIT Bombay!

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Thanks...you have been inspiring.. Also my phy is very weak compared to chem and maths..any idea where to do this last rev from? Is hc verma enough? I haven't done the star marking rev sums from my coaching books so..

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Oh, so just do those sums, and ask your professors for some sums, which have insane concepts!

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Sorry but I said I haven't done that..although it was the ideal soln to rev:p ..although I will ask my teacher..thanks for that.. Also one last question..I heard that in ur advn paper u had less ques on physical chem and conic sections...I know u can't predict jee papers but does this mean we might get more ques on these topics?

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Cannot say anything! :P It is completely unpredictable!

- 3 years, 8 months ago

@Avineil Jain You have inspired me a lot!!!! I really want to know some good tricks that MUST help me achieve this institute man! You don't know how mad I am about it.

P.S.- Is Christopher Nolan really coming to Mood Indigo?

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Just Hard Work man, that's it ! and even we don't know whether Nolan is coming or not! :P

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Wow...! Congratulation @Avineil Jain !!

I'am an JEE aspirant for JEE 2015 so will you please give us some usefull Tips Like "what to do or what not" also i feel good if you give us some tips For preparing Chemistry Since I am not good in that. I'am continusly not able to built interest in it Specially in Physical chemistry.

Thanks a lot!

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Yes me too tips for the last few months

- 3 years, 11 months ago

For Physical chem, practice a lot of quality objective questions. Subjective Questions may be referred for concepts. For physics, practice Irodov(a must), also buy the solution manual coz without it its useless to solve problems. DC Pandey may be referred for some problems(subjective ones are really good) For maths, again practice a variety of questions.

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Thanks!! But still I can't able to develop interest interest in physical chemestry ( Since My org. and Inorg are gud in my opinion ) So should I ignore it . I'am Saying because really it becomes Too Hard And Boring For me..!! Please Guide Me @Avineil Jain Thanks a lot !!

What's you jee AIR Anvineil .

- 3 years, 11 months ago

He is in IIT-Bombay so it is sure his rank would be under 600.

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Its Avineil not Anvineil! :P a pro tip, dont ask AIR from a person who has given Advanced, coz it doesnt matter after you have gotten into college!

- 3 years, 11 months ago
