Resonance Student Yash Sanjeev representing INDIA in IMO 2017

“The key to success is to hard work and to believe in yourself and your teachers…”

The above lines are very beautifully quoted by a simple boy from Lucknow who joined Resonance, Kota in the year 2016 for whom success became a habit. His dream didn’t become a reality through magic; it took sweat, determination and hard work. He understood the value of hard work and made his mark and will be soon representing India in International Mathematical Olympiad 2017 to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The boy originating from a middle class family where father is employed as a Chief Manager at state Bank of India and mother is a housewife. He had cherished the same dream as other students who come to Kota, an Education hub seeking their future in Engineering and Medical Education.

“I think the best word that describes Resonance is excellence. With an amazing staff Resonance provides not only really interactive and high quality classes with well-prepared teachers. They truly make you have your best life experience.”

He recalls back the time when he decided to study at Resonance which helped him in acquiring a lot of confidence and moral values. Yash has always been eager in learning a lot about mathematics. His keen interest in mathematics and trust over the faculties at Resonance attracted him to choose Resonance. He attended the camp organised by Resonance in the year 2015. He was impressed by the highly qualified staff of Resonance, especially SPS Sir who was able to satisfy all the questions asked by Yash in the various sessions of camp. RKV Sir, the Physics maestro is also the man who enthused him with competitive spirit and educative qualities. After seeing the calibre and undivided attention of Yash for studies, RK Verma Sir made sure that Yash is properly equipped by all the resources Yash require to achieve his dreams. He was also introduced to prodigy of mathematics at Reso Base, Karnataka. In totality it was a combined effort of Resonance which led to add on of so many achievements in the success diary of Yash.

The most important thing that he kept in mind while joining Resonance is the fact that he was not mediocre anymore. Hours needed for studying will be longer, assignments will be more difficult and time consuming, and faculty will expect a greater level of professionalism in home work and assignments.

He has an endless list of achievements which define his success, but few of his exemplary accomplishments are that he became an NTSE scholar in 2016, a KVPY scholar in 2017, qualified INJSO in 2016, INAO in 2016, RMO in 2015, NSEP and NSEA in 2017.

Yash has always been inspired by the gifts scientists have given us in the form of many researches. He feels that in the day to day hustle of our busy lives full of research, formulae, etc. we often forget to think about those who walked this road before us and created many of the techniques we use. Without their contributions, it’s difficult to imagine where we would be. With that said, he wants to become a Theoretical Physicist and Mathematician and this is his way of giving thanks and showing appreciation to all those who came before us in the field of science and to help inspire other people out there trying to do great things now.

He likes playing football and has a lot of interest in outdoor games. He has a message for all the students who are focusing for IMO that though unlike other subjects Olympiad there is no intersection between the course of Mathematics Olympiad and IIT syllabus, one should not give up and practice from low difficulty level questions to high difficulty level questions.

Resonance wishes him all the luck for his future endeavors.

  • 1: Easy
  • 2: Moderate
  • 3: Difficult


In paper I, Physics and Mathematics were easy compared to Chemistry. Mathematics and Physics paper was moderately easy, Chemistry was considered difficult.

In paper II, Resonance experts considered Chemistry difficult. Due to lengthy and calculation intensive nature of the problems in Physics paper, it was considered between medium to difficult. Mathematics paper was relatively easier of the three subjects.

Overall, Resonance experts feel that the paper was relatively easy than the last year. While Chemistry was overall most difficult, Mathematics was considered moderate overall while Physics was relatively easier than the other two subjects. In total, easy questions comprised of 122 marks, moderate questions comprised of 147 marks and difficult questions comprised of 97 marks.

As the paper was relatively easy than last year, students are expected to score high this year.

NTSE 2017: A Detailed Analysis by Resonance Experts Team

NTSE 2017: The National Talent Search Examination (NTSE) is a national level examination cum scholarship programme. The scholarship programme is conducted by NCERT and students studying in class X were eligible for NTSE 2016 examination and selection procedure. NTSE stage-I was conducted in the month of November/ December across the nation. Stage II was conducted on May 14, 2016.

 Eligibility: As per the eligibility criteria of NTSE, all the students studying in X standard are eligible to apply for this scholarship programme. A student from any state of the country can register for this examination and scholarship scheme. A student can be from a government or a private school.

 Pattern/ Syllabus: The National Talent Search Examination is conducted for students studying at the Class X level. The examination consists of three tests:

  1. Mental Ability Test (MAT)
  2. Language Comprehension Test ( LCT)
  3. Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)

NTSE Mental Ability Test (MAT) Syllabus

This test is to judge the power of reasoning, ability to think, ability to judge, evaluate or discriminate, ability to visualize in the space, spatial orientation, etc. A variety of questions, for example – analogies, classification, series, pattern perception, hidden figures, coding decoding, block assembly, problem solving, etc. are used for this purpose.

NTSE Scholastic Aptitude Test (LCT) Syllabus (Language Test)

Language Test is designed to judge the power of reading comprehension, logical sequencing; interpretative, evaluative, predictive and creative components of language. The test is conducted for English and Regional Languages.

NTSE Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) Syllabus (Maths, Science & Social Science)

This section is conducted to judge how much of text-book knowledge you have gained. As India doesn’t have any single unified board system, NCERT has not prescribed any particular syllabus for the State Level Examination or for National Level Examination.

You can expect questions that are asked at the National Level (Stage-II) to be standard of Classes IX and X level.

Question Paper: The medium of test is English and regional languages and it comprised of 200 question. The students have to select and mark one right answer from the four given options. Each right answer carry one point each, thus making the total score of the candidate in a test equal to the number of questions answered correctly. However, at the second stage 1/3 mark is deducted for every wrong answer.

Merit Clause: All the students who achieve requisite scores at this level automatically qualify for scholarships that are handed over by NCERT.

Screen Shot 2017-05-14 at 6.48.37 PM

Resonance Experts made the following observations:

  • Mental Ability: Paper was lengthier than last year’s paper and that is why it is considered more difficult than last year’s paper.
  • Chemistry and Biology: Both these subjects had lengthier and confusing questions which made both of them relatively difficult from last year.
  • Physics: The paper was relatively easy than last year as questions were fairly straight forward.
  • Mathematics: The questions in mathematics were difficult than last year as the focus was on complex topics this year. Two questions of common roots were particularly ambiguous.
  • English: The paper was relatively difficult than last year’s paper.
  • Social Science: Paper was extremely lengthy and 8 questions came out of syllabus which made it a difficult paper to solve.

Overall, it was observed that the paper was on the tougher side compared to last year and thus cutoff is expected to decrease.
