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.
• Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

I think in a few questions, yes!

- 5 years, 1 month ago

I am from Delhi getting about 141 in NSEP and 140 in NSEC acc. to the ALLEN upload(which I don't completely trust). How about everyone else? When is the official answer key out usually? Will I qualify for INChO and INPhO?

- 5 years, 2 months ago

r u in class 11 or 12

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Class 12, but I didn't have time for preparation. SO it was like I moved into the test hall without much expecting. Anyway, I found some questions in NSEC to be ambiguous. I don't think my score would make me eligible to write the INOs

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Pretty hectic because I was busy with my college applications and could find only a little time. And besides this, I had a blunder with marking the responses in NSEP. Would have got 168 if I had done it correctly!

- 5 years, 2 months ago

also every coaching institute is giving different answers for More than one correct answers in nsep . what do you think about that?

- 5 years, 2 months ago

I hate the idea of coaching institutes, but okay here, I think the answer key uploaded by ALLEN has correct solutions for More than One Correct type. The Resonance keys are always absurd. Any other coaching institutes.

- 5 years, 2 months ago

i am in class 11 . NSEP- 80-90 NSEC- 100-110 NSEA- 175-180

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Also it was nightmare for class 11 students because about 45 questions in nsec were from 12th standard syllabus also in nsec about 60% questions were from 12th . so 12th standard students would have done well in it .

- 5 years, 2 months ago

I am in 10th. According to Allen answer key I am getting 94 in NSEP.

- 5 years, 1 month ago

That is a good score in class 10th, I got around a 100 when wrote it for the first time in 2012! Pretty cool! Have you taken the NSEA and NSEJS too?

- 5 years, 1 month ago

no, next time ! i am not eligible for NSEJS.

- 5 years, 1 month ago

Okay, but do try!

- 5 years, 1 month ago

sure!

- 5 years, 1 month ago

Ask some of your seniors to put their scores here!

- 5 years, 1 month ago

@Prakhar Bindal , @CH Nikhil ask your friends to post too!

what would be the approximate cutoff in nse's this year?.I'm scoring 150 in nsep, 170 in nsec 195 in nsea

- 5 years, 1 month ago

According to the official answer key?

- 5 years, 1 month ago

You are most probably getting through in all three if you are from Delhi. But didn't you find any problems with the answer key?

- 5 years, 1 month ago

well.I'm from Rajasthan.And I think I would clear only nsea as my batch mates are getting 180-190 in both nsep and nsec.

- 5 years, 1 month ago

I know they do. Tough luck being from Rajasthan! But still it is alright, because I think you would go to an IIT. What grade are you in?

- 5 years, 1 month ago

12th . i wanna go to iisc

- 5 years, 1 month ago

Oh! Actually I have got a medal in IESO and went to IChOTC but I don't think they get consider that, do they? I mean you would have gotten to IISc with a good KVPY rank. For others they take an admission test! But your score says you will do it. My NSEs went badly because of the confusion this time. Those paper codes and then that experimental shizz I had not prepared for, drowned me.

- 5 years, 1 month ago

Firstly congratulations on your achievements.i did clear kvpy but i screwed the interview and thus my rank is not worth mentioning

- 5 years, 1 month ago

How much did you scored in kvpy last year and what rank did u got? . i am scoring about 74 in aptitude test in kvpy (sa stream) . what marks are required in interview to enter top 100 ?

- 5 years, 1 month ago

Well I think,you should try to score around 70-75 in interview and you'll have a great chance to be in the top 50

- 5 years, 1 month ago

Thanks i will try my best! :)

- 5 years, 1 month ago

- 5 years, 1 month ago

Thanks! . i will surely stay confident ! . I Also know that person . there is like a buzz here in delhi ncr about his score! . i dont know how the news spreads so widely !

- 5 years, 1 month ago

Try studying hard for their entrance or rather focus on JEE. You will get in! I anyway don't have any plans to continue in India. I'll be going to US next year.

- 5 years, 1 month ago

what kind of exam are you talking about? iisc offers admission through iit/kvpy/aipmt performance And did you appear for act?

- 5 years, 1 month ago

I did! Haven't got my result as yet! Yeah, I meant the interviews! Are you applying abroad too?

- 5 years, 1 month ago

no.i'm not applying this year.but i appeared for the act in october

- 5 years, 1 month ago

Has your result come?

- 5 years, 1 month ago

yes

- 5 years, 1 month ago

How much did you score ?

- 5 years, 1 month ago

please u 2 share ur marks in aptitude+interview and rank so that i can get an idea about how much should i score in interview

- 5 years, 1 month ago

I had a 68 in the aptitude test. But I think your score was the like in the highest 10 last year. 16-20/25 is a very good score, but I guess the aptitude test this time was pretty easy. SO, it is hard to say anything.

- 5 years, 1 month ago

I Think official answer keys are more correct because they are leading to an increase of 20 marks in my score! :P (NSEP)

- 5 years, 1 month ago

What is your score now?

- 5 years, 1 month ago

about 95-100 in nsep and about 110-120 in nsec and 180 in nsea

- 5 years, 1 month ago

i just gave it for the sake of giving it . i will prepare for it next year

- 5 years, 1 month ago
