Raison d’etre

Competitive exams all over the world have moved online. Yet very few students get adequate practice with the online examination format. Clash of Pi is designed to simulate real world conceptual tests and to benchmark students based on their mathematical aptitude. The future of Math Testing is here!

Can your students compete against the world’s best math stars in their grade? Can they maximize speed of problem solving while maintaining a high level of accuracy? Can your school earn the coveted ‘Top Math School’ title?

There’s only one way to find out! Register with Clash of Pi and become part of the next generation of math learners. Rigorous, Competitive and Advanced.

It is our goal to make mathematics learning a continuous process, that includes learning, practice, benchmarking and competing. There is no better path to improvement than the positive feedback loop that is generated from periodic competition and assessment. Clash of Pi achieves this in a fun, non-intimidating and collaborative way gently persuading students to work consistently and thereby achieve better results.

How does Clash of Pi work?

This is a team event. India’s most prestigious schools send their top teams to compete in a monthly online mathematics aptitude test. There are 8 qualifier rounds (from April to November) leading up to the Final Round in January of the succeeding year.

Each qualifying round is carefully conceived so that all grade appropriate content is covered over the period of the contest, making Clash of Pi the most comprehensive and rigorous online test in the country. (See table below for more detailed information regarding the schedule of rounds)

Test dates are typically in the third weekend of the month. Each qualifying round is formulated as a 2 day event with a real-time scoreboard. The contest is live from 8am to 8pm IST on both days.

After the 2 day event each month, final results of each round are disclosed on the succeeding Monday. The results are updated on the contest website page (picirql.com/competitionleaderboard)

Schools are sent detailed results information including All India and School Level certificates.

What are schools/school teams competing for?

Schools compete for the following overall awards categories:

  1. INDIA'S TOP MATH SCHOOLS by region
  2. BEST INTERNATIONAL SCHOOLS FOR MATHEMATICS
  3. BEST CBSE SCHOOLS FOR MATHEMATICS
  4. BEST RESIDENTIAL SCHOOLS FOR MATHEMATICS
  5. BEST ICSE SCHOOLS FOR MATHEMATICS

Students compete for All-India Ranks and Power Performer certificates (distributed through the schools on a monthly basis)

Scoring System (Qualifier Rounds)

School team points are computed based on a proprietary algorithm that factors in individual team member scores, consistency of performance and difficulty level of questions solved. The following parameters are used as to compute the Team Score:

Number of students with All India Ranks
Number of students with Power Performer Certificates
Relative Performance of top 10 students per grade from the school team
Participation of Team

Individual team members are eligible to participate in each of the qualifier rounds. Schools teams get the opportunity to participate every month and to improve their scores.

The schools with the maximum points in each round feature at the top of the schools leaderboard. The best score in any ONE round is reflected as the School Team Score.

There are negative points assigned to incorrect and skipped questions. Individual scores are calculated based on the following parameters:

Correct answers          :   plus 10 points per question
Incorrect answers       :   minus 5 points per question
Skipped questions < 5 :   minus 2 points per question
Skipped questions > 5 :   minus 5 points per question

Students of the same grade will receive different tests, but of the same level of difficulty in order to maintain parity across a grade level.

School teams must have a minimum of 20 participants in each round to qualify for a score.

Eligibility Criteria for Final Round

The top 10 students per grade in each school will represent the school in the Final Round, which is held in January of the succeeding year.

School will receive the list of best performing students during the Qualifier rounds.

Series Scoring System

The scores in the Final Round will contribute to 70 percent of the School Team Score. The results in the qualifiers will make up 30 percent of the School Team Score.
