Epsilon Application FAQ

My child is struggling with these tests. Is that normal?


Yes, it is expected that children struggle through these tests. We would like to see them persevere and go beyond their commfort zone of being able to tackle every question like they are used to in school. We are not looking for the student to get every question right, but we would like to see them attempt all the questions and show us the work so we can understand their thought process. Math is not a spectator sport. Jump in, sweat a bit and have fun exploring these problems!




Is a recommendation letter mandatory?


Recommnedation letters are not mandatory but they help us to understand more about the student and hence are highly valued by our academic team during the application review process. This can be anyone you work closely with, including your sports, music, academic teachers. We would like them to tell us why they think you will be a good fit for Epsilon camp.




My child has completed the tests. What do I need to do now?


1. Scan the completed Algebra test as one single pdf file and the Exploratory test as another single pdf file and send the two files to epsiloncampindia@gmail.com. Please do not upload individual photos of the completed problems. 2. Go through the video tutorial to get familiar with the student portal. Please go through this video carefully to understand how to upload the necessary documents as well as the process of collecting recommendation from your teachers through the portal itself. 2. Click on the Register button in the " How to Apply" page. 3. The Registration process will also include some questions that needs to be answered by the parent. Detailed answers to the questionnaire will help our academic team understand how the child views math. This needs to be filled by the parent.




Should I wait till the deadline to apply?


We do rolling admissions, i.e, we will be filling spots as and when we get qualified candidates (based on qualifying tests, teacher recommendations and other materials submitted), so your chance of getting selected is higher if you apply early. Registration will be open till we have no spots left.
