Everyone else is doing it :D

A few facts about myself: I'm 13 and I love Maths! I study in a school called Raffles Institution. Also, I'm a moderator on Brilliant for a few topics such as Algebra and Number Theory (I don't know whether I'm supposed to reveal this :D)

I'll leave more details to the comments. Have fun! :D

(I hope this works out just like all the rest of the messageboards, which have had great responses (probably because they have loads of followers like Finn Hulse and I only have 350+))

In Primary \(6\) (equivalent to Year \(6\)), every student in Singapore has to take an examination known as the PSLE (Primary School Leaving Examination). Subjects such as English, Chinese, Math and Science are covered. The T-score of each student is computed (it's quite complicated because it's the relative score of each student to one another and not simply the sum of all the test scores). In this case, Raffles Institution (and a few other independent schools) are regarded as the 'top-tier' secondary schools out there (Year \(7-12\)) and usually you have to get \(\geq 260\) to gain entry. The top scorer in Singapore (I think) achieved a score of \(275\). I got \(268\) :)

That's why in the Singapore Maths Olympiad, the top \(30\) usually consists of students from RI :)

It's not really people in Raffles become good in math, its mainly because people good in math come to Raffles XD

I hope the following comment doesn't become controversial.

YES! I have seen that Brilliant has a lot, almost half of the members from India and SINGAPORE. So, yes, USA, this time, it's Asia winning the race for the love of MATHS.

But yes I think that Brilliant doesn't have a moderator from India. Is there any??

Log in to reply

It's not hard to guess one.

Log in to reply

Really? Who's he/they? I have some names in my mind who can be...

BTW, celebration time for you!!!!

News apart, ah I liked that Inde[french for India(for those couldn't understand)]. Yes, I have it as a 3rd language in my school but i don't know if I am good at it because the real challenge comes only when talking to a real french guy..

Maintenant, tu sais 4 langues - l'Hindi(je pense), l'anglais, le francais, et Tamil....!!!!!!!

@Victor Loh ?

Well I actually watched the whole match. The thrills were clearly visible in the 4th set when FedEx clawed back from a break down to clinch it 7-5. Congrats to Djoker. And about my avatar, I only admire his game. As such I don't support any individual. Do you follow tennis everytime ? How about youLog in to reply

Back to studies(although fully after the WC) and I really want some help especially in Geometry, E&M, and Calculus. being my elder, please advice me something!!!!
