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.

Hi Prakhar . I am Dipesh and I have qualified for ntse this year from maharashtra . I am using Arihant practice set and Ntse explorer (by mtg) for ntse . For the next part of your question that is how to maintain a balance between ntse and studies of 11th standard , I am confused too.Could you tell me how you are balancing your studies because I don't have much idea about it. Thanks

I Am Too Using NTSE Books By MTG And Test Series Provided FIITJEE(mypat.in). the main problem lies in world history i forget it after 3-4 days of reading.i am too confused how to balance between 11th studies.my coaching would start on 11th april.i think after that only i will be able to make a plan for balancing

I have also qualified for stage 2 of NTSE....I was in ICSE board in class 10th. How should I go for SST as it will be totally on CBSE basis...Pls someone help.Thanks in advance.

- 6 years, 3 months ago

Sorry I Cant help because i am from cbse board

- 6 years, 3 months ago

bhaiya,can you tell me how did you prepare SST for stage 2 ? (i have qualified for the 2nd round,which will be held on 8th may 2016)

- 5 years, 5 months ago

this was my method of sst .

I Focussed 90% of my attention on geography and history (30 questions out of 40 will be from these 2 ) . I Used To make questions and answers from each chapter of these two subjects and write them in a notebook (i remembered that i made 105 questions and answers from the chapter french revolution and about 150 from novels chapter) . i revised that notebook periodically in the last 3 weeks before the exam . one week before the exam i started studying biology , civics and economics because i had covered all other subjects quite well . Because of this scored full marks in geography,physics,economics and chemistry in ntse. just you need study sst although you dont but you have to study if you want to crack ntse.

Thank you bhaiya!!!!!!. Just another query, I am quite weak in physics (the mechanics portion) can you please give me some tips so that I may improve in physics,also should I refer to MCQs in HC Verma for NTSE stage 2 preparations.???

- 5 years, 5 months ago

Thats not at all required. Just go through NCERT Of 9th class and practice some good quality problems from A nice book like mtg NTSE Explorer or TMH Ntse book or the one provided by resonance is also good

i think you have given ntse stage 1 from UP. I Too gave from U.P.How much did you scored in stage 1. i scored 125-127/140

- 6 years, 3 months ago

I think I would had got around 115-120/140.

First of all i would congratulate you for your 1st stage performance then since i cleared the exam last year i have something for you. Last year the part that did the trixk was Mat. Most of the students neglected mat and since the mat paper was very tough most cleared only by a small margin. So it would be good if you give 3-4 days to Mat. Now for sat preparation follow ncert very thoroughly also the questions asked in science section are very easy a single whole book reading will do. Sst part is tricky so i would advice u to go those parts only which u find easy. For the balance with 11 th u would have to give at least 1 hour per day so that u dont lag behind.Dont worry if 11 th seems tough to manage beacause u will have enough rime later on. Sorry for the long post and good luck for your exam.

In response to Samarth Agrawal :- I don't know about ICSE board very much. I think you should use the NTSE Explorer by mtg . It is very useful . How are you preparing ??

Yeah they are nice for stage 2 purposes

- 5 years, 3 months ago

Thanks.any practice papers in the book and high level questions??

- 5 years, 3 months ago

I Dont remember as such . But practice previous year paper (From 2013 onwards that is 3 papers ) and papers by fiitjee (On www.mypat.in) are the best (They are much above NTSE Level but useful for preparations)

@Prakhar Bindal is the qualifying marks in MAT always 40%(20 marks) or it changes with respect to the difficulty level of the paper?

- 5 years, 3 months ago

It is Fixed 40%. i will advice you to focus on MAT as one of my friends scored 97 marks total out of 150 (cutoff was 77) but still was not able to qualify ntse because he score 16 marks in mat!
