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.

Can you guyz please share some tricks on how to solve mat in stage 2 in the exam?

NTSE stage 2 is on this Sunday(8/5/16).

I have given fiitjee test series but got very low scores in mat (27,20,24).

I want to know how to solve mat paper.Please share some optimal strategy.

Also any tips for last moment SSC revision?

Thanks!

- 4 years, 9 months ago

I think score above 20 in MAT is the best.MAT of stage 2 is indeed very tough. I am aiming for getting 25+ in MAT

- 4 years, 9 months ago

I spend half of my time thinking which ques to solve :P

- 4 years, 9 months ago

You will get above 25 but my mat is very^very poor.I fear that I may not even cross 20 marks.

Also sat SSC and chemistry are tough.

- 4 years, 9 months ago

- 4 years, 9 months ago

For MAT , before exam I did solve the previous years MAT paper( fixing 1 hr time ) and checked my score ... That helped me raise my confidance !! U should also try this , by this u will become familiar to exam conditions and then u could perform better!! :)

- 4 years, 9 months ago

There is not even 1 hour, its just 45 mins :(

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Oh ! Ya forgot!! :)

- 4 years, 9 months ago

No I want to know what strategies did you followed while solving mat paper?

Also about SSC revision? I always forget things in geography :(

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Sorry! But I don't think I follow any strategies an MAT , I was confidant about my MAT

Just analyse the q and it will give u the answer!!!! But try that u have seen the complete paper before time as I think no one can solve the MAT paper completely , so try to gain as much as u can , search for easy ones 1st. Abt SST , in these last hrs I revised it from fiitjee q booklets separately given for NTSE.

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Hmm thanks a lot!

- 4 years, 9 months ago

How much are you getting in Stage-2? @Harsh Shrivastava @Nihar Mahajan I think Math would have been very benificial for you guys!

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Maybe between 90-100.( approx 95).

Hope cutoff is less than 90 though many would have scored above 100.

Do you know any south state marks?

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Hey i heard that paper was easier this time was it?

But still you dont worry you will be selected no problem at all

Good Luck! :)

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Do you know any scores in your region?

- 4 years, 9 months ago

You did not told me about the level of paper?

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Hmm, honestly, Level of paper can be judged only after getting scores of diff ppl :P

Tomorrow is my FIITJEE, i'll get to know marks of others.

But MAT was easier than previous year and SAT's SSC,Bio and Chem were tough for me.

Do you know any scores in your region?

- 4 years, 9 months ago

One boy is getting 105. No one else crossed 100. Mostly around 80 only I think. I actually felt that Math was bit tricky this year, but yeah Brilliantians would have had an edge! Physics was very conceptual unlike the stupid numericals last year :(

- 4 years, 9 months ago

No . you should check aryan classes and ntsexamination.blogspot.com for scores of others

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Hey due to NTSE i can't study class 11 topics in deep, so will i be able to cope up with those who covered class 11 topics earlier?What was your strategy?You also cleared KVPY?

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Hope you are right :)

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Hey.. that's quite good.. I am sure you will be selected mostly.

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Hope you are right :)

- 4 years, 9 months ago

Congrats!

What is the cutoff for stage 2 ?

- 5 years, 5 months ago

According To Some Reliable Sources It Seems Cutoff Is in between 75-78 By the Way Did You Gave It? What was your score

- 5 years, 5 months ago

in haryana the cut off was 105 and i scored 103 :"(

- 5 years, 4 months ago

I Think there is no state wise cutoff in ntse stage 2 . (I Think you are talking about stage 1 right?

- 5 years, 4 months ago

yes

- 5 years, 4 months ago

Ok here in this thread we were talking about stage 2 . :)

- 5 years, 4 months ago

i kind of realised that when i read someone scored 87.41 but i guess i was a bit too late

- 5 years, 4 months ago

I will be appearing this year.

- 5 years, 5 months ago

ok. Prepare Well And All The Best :)

- 5 years, 5 months ago

I don't have a good streak in physics.Can you help ? There is always very huge difference in my maths and chem vs physics marks.

- 5 years, 5 months ago

Well As I see from your profile it seems that you will give ntse stage 1 from Uttar Pradesh. I Also gave it from there only. for stage 1 purposes i would say that the paper is somewhat weird . they ask questions like stars of mars, simply calculating potential energy at a height h from ground or which lens is used for correct myopia etc . stage 1 physics can be very easily cracked if you have studied NCERT ((9th and 10th) thoroughly .but for stage 2 purpose you need to go beyond that as hardly there will be any direction question. for that i will say read ncert thoroughly and go through some good books(like the one by TMH Or Disha Publications) . For practice you can give some mock tests . i would say that this year's physics paper of stage 2 was one of the best papers of physics of ntse that i have seen (last 4-5 years). Dont leave activities given in the ncert textbooks too(they sometimes catchup those things too)

All the best ! :)

- 5 years, 5 months ago

What about S.S.T ? Should I do it from H.M.Publication or from NCERT ?

- 5 years, 5 months ago

Let's gear up for KVPY..all the best for all of you.

By the way, what kind of company are you going to open?

Really....!You are going to recruit me in your startup....,this is amazing and unbelievable. :) LOL

- 5 years, 5 months ago

Congrats ! Way better than me.

- 5 years, 5 months ago

- 5 years, 5 months ago

85.

- 5 years, 5 months ago

Firstly, congrats!! It was a little less than 80 (78-79.5). How much did you score?

- 5 years, 5 months ago

I managed to get around 85. What was your score ?

- 5 years, 5 months ago

I too got a little more than 85.

- 5 years, 5 months ago

Great ! How much did you manage in MAT ? I found it quite lengthy.

- 5 years, 5 months ago

I got around 26-27(made a lot of silly mistakes) I did pretty bad in SAT because of Physics and SST

- 5 years, 5 months ago

I scored around 23. I don't know anyone else qualifying stage 2 and scoring less than 23.

- 5 years, 5 months ago

I know many :P

- 5 years, 5 months ago

I Know the following who qualified ntse: Myself, @rohit kumar , @Divij Mishra ,@Shubham Agarwal ,@Krishna Ar

- 5 years, 5 months ago

How many NTSE Scholars from Brilliant?

- 5 years, 5 months ago

I am .

- 4 years, 2 months ago

Forgot me so fast, Krishna?? :'(

- 5 years, 5 months ago

I'm so sorry Ashim!!! :'( I forgot that your profile name was different

- 5 years, 5 months ago

Who is myself? :3

- 5 years, 5 months ago

Well, congratulations! But I don't think that people like you even need that. Aren't you the NTSE topper this year?

- 5 years, 5 months ago

You'd be pleased to know that i am 35 marks away from the topper.

- 5 years, 5 months ago

Wait, what? That's why I say there is something wrong with the way education in India is going on. Krishna Ar is not the topper, oh come on!

- 5 years, 5 months ago

What about you? You are also in 11th right?

- 5 years, 5 months ago

Yes I am. But what's with NTSE and 11 and Kartik? They are disjoint sets.

- 5 years, 5 months ago

I mean you must have given it in 10th right? So did you qualify?

- 5 years, 5 months ago

-_-

- 5 years, 5 months ago

Congratulations.

- 5 years, 5 months ago

Thanks :)

- 5 years, 5 months ago

Wait , Isn't it going to be on 11th November 2015?

- 5 years, 5 months ago

@Nihar Mahajan ,are you in class 11th or 10th?

- 5 years, 5 months ago

Class 10

- 5 years, 5 months ago

It is on 8th Nov this year.

- 5 years, 5 months ago

Aha! I forgot to mentioned the year of NTSE. I Am Talking About The NTSE 2014-15 Examination whose first stage was conducted In November 2014 And second stage was held In May 2015 .(for clarification the students who have entered class 11 this year)

- 5 years, 5 months ago

Results of last year I guess.

- 5 years, 5 months ago

Oh my god , so late!!!

- 5 years, 5 months ago

Yep normally they take 4-5 months every year to declare the list of handful 1000 students!

- 5 years, 5 months ago

Congratulations

- 5 years, 5 months ago

- 5 years, 5 months ago

I couldn't even qualify stage 1. Probably because of my careless attitude towards Social and Bio. But now i will definitely clear KVPY. Congrats to you once again, saw your photo in the newspaper. Are you on Slack, we could talk there. @Abhijeet Verma

- 5 years, 5 months ago

BEST OF LUCK for kvpy,hope that you can clear it! BTW, i am not on slack(what is it,actually?)

- 5 years, 5 months ago
