Hi Everyone! The 2014 NMTC (prelim) just concluded about an hour back in most indian cities. This competition known for its wacky and non-routine problems is quite akin to the Putnam Lowell competition as the median scores in this competition too are almost zero. (Because of the heavy negative marking). 2014 paper was a mix of happiness, sadness, shock and surprise to me. Actually it was a happy/joyous paper because it was quite an easy one ...(not too easy though)...sorrowful because I DIDN'T do my BEST.- I could have easily scored 20+ :(. Shocking because it contained some totally easy problems and surpising because despite it being easier than prev.papers, it was totally not-solvable in 2 hrs. ( unless you are truly a genius). Owing to my illness, My speed was badly reduced. I was able to attempt only 19 questions, though I could have easily notched up 3-4 more ones . Final score-19 (20 if +1 marks is given for Bonus) :'(

How well did you all fare? Please do post your scores! Do like and reshare so that it reaches a larger audience and we get to know their scores also!

PLS NOTE THAT I AM IN JUNIOR LEVEL AND SATVIK'S ANSWER KEY TOO IS APPLICABLE FOR THE SAME.

Log in to reply

Nope its 400 exactly. ANyway @Siddharth G - how much are you getting? What is the expected cut-off at your center? Where did you write it? What are your friends getting?

Log in to reply

@Aditya Raut @Dinesh Chavan - How much are you guys scoring in INTER level ?

Log in to reply

I made some silly mistakes, otherwise I expected my score to be \(29/30\) ,but now it's gonna be less than that .....too less....

For example, I factorized \(27000001\) in half minute, using

\(300^3+1^3=(300+1)((300+1)^2-3\times 300 \times 1)\\=301\times (301^2-30^2 )= (301)(301+30)(301-30)=7\times 43\times 271\times 331\)

And after this, i wrote their sum as \(642\) in stead of \(652\)

At one place, I introduced \(\dfrac{1}{2}\) in heron's formula which is not there!!!

At one place, they asked double of that angle (ans being \(225^\circ\)), and I wrote the angle( \(112.5^\circ\) )

Once in my rough work, i saw my own \(6\) as \(9\), and wrote an answer that was greater than right one by 3.

One of them I left unattempted ,but later got it, just after giving the answer sheet back !

so sad right? LOL ! Few more mistakes like that, for which someone should slap me .... But nvm, that's a part and parcel of life :P

What say @Satvik Golechha or @Krishna Ar ? Do you feel like giving me a strong slap for the above noted silly mistakes ?

@Dhruva Kothari

Some person has already done that, just search in brilliant search , he posted each of the questions separately. I don't remember name.Log in to reply

Hmm... Seems like a tie! here are mine-

-- I found the answer for 16, went wrong with verification, and skipped the question.

-- In the AP formula, I divided by 2 twice!

-- Wrongly added four two digit numbers.

-- Took the wrong ratio in similarities.

-- \(37*2=39\)!

-- Multiplied both side by \(0\)
