Discussion of scores and percentiles

Page 1 of 6

I found some RC questions extremely tricky and the explanations provided for them aren't very convincing. Did someone else feel the same ?

The answer to Question 28 in QA has been corrected. The marks have been updated and new percentiles and ranks have been awarded. Please do check. :)


My percentile and rank were changed from 99.66 and 42 to 99.71 and 39.

I skipped the entire Bungaland Set just due to a preconceived notion that this train set is difficult. There was a difficult version of a similar set with 4 cities in Application Builder which led me tear my hair off. 😟 


Set selection 🙈 !

Converts(16): SIBMP, SCMHRD, NMIMS, IIFTD, MDI PGPM, IIM Shillong, IIM Ranchi, IIM Rohtak, IIM Raipur, IIM Kashipur, IIM Udaipur, IIM Nagpur, IIM Sirmaur, IIM Bodhgaya, IIM Jammu, Amritsar

Oh. I couldn't do the other sets so picked up this one and found it easy. But happens with me as well. In this same paper I didn't do that five people exchanging coins in total 5 transactions. Had seen a similar difficult one to laga difficult hoga :( Familiarity can back fire as well. :-|

@shashank.btk 10 to 20 ke beech mein ek division tha.. without grid lines. The indicators were triangels and circles to add to chaos. I took a value as 15, solution mein 12 hia.. cumulative effects for all values.. It is okay may be ur approximation went good wrt what they have taken. Anyway it is done. no point in discussing further

 How can the LR set 20-23 be done in short time? The solution given will take long time. Any help would be appreciated.
