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.

HAHA! XD...I must say as the others say the culprit is Social Science. In TN you wouldn't believe but cutoff for General Cat. is 133/140. Its too damn high and missing a few questions will cost y'er a lot. Since each state has different syllabi I dont think my ranting here would help. FYI- We don't even have access to sample papers or last year paper. :( Anyway -Best of Luck and wish me the same too. We'll meet here on 2nd November again.

Really!! What books to refer for NTSE? I am going to try to attempt NTSE this year and I am also from TN. Please help me and could you refer some websites for preparation. Thank you in advance @Krishna Ar

You can refer to the book of TATA Mcgraw hill education because it is really useful and very clear for MAT . For SAT you have to study state board books of class 10 and class 9 . Unfortunately, it is a great disadvantage for CBSE students

Thank you @Sriram Venkatesan . Is the state board and cbse syllabus very different and is it true that icse syllabus are also included?

- 3 years, 6 months ago

social syllabus is about 95 % different especially history which includes participation of tamil leaders in freedom struggle and about tamilnadu geography ..... maths and science is more or less the same . I am not sure if icse sylllabus is also included in NTSE

Thank you @Sriram Venkatesan and I refered to this link which said icse syllabus is also included. http://www.tnpscportal.in/2014/08/tamilnadu-national-talent-search-examination-november-notification.html

i would be giving NTSE this year in a couple of days and i am not sure about my selection as i am not at all good at social science. the MAT and SAT portions everyone manages to score well but the problem lies in social science . so study social hard . best of luck!

- 5 years ago

Hello to all my fellow Brillianteers! I am a student of class 10 and am going to give NTSE this year from Chhattisgarh I wanted to ask all of you a simple query- I have heard that for SSC of stage 1 we should refer to state board books. IS this true? If yes do you know from where these books can be arranged(govt doesn't sell them in normal shops i think)? And which classes have more weight age in social(6,7,8 or 9 and 10) ? @Aaron Jerry Ninan @Thomas Jacob @Rishabh Bhatnagar @Satwik Banchhor

@Mehul Chaturvedi just stick to NCERT of Class 9 and 10 especially for Social Sc. Study SST as much as you can because if you score good in social you will have greater chances of getting selected. And Best of Luck Give your best .
