In the solution in Product Frame 1, R5C4 & R5C5 are switched, it should be 5/4 and not 4/5 ;)

 What was your opinion of the distribution of easy/hard puzzles? Just right
 What did you think about the puzzle quality of the test? Very nice
 Which set of puzzles did you like the most? X Sums Sudoku
 Of the puzzles you solved/attempted, how well did the point values reflect the difficulty? Most puzzles were worth the right amount


The 15 and 16 point ones seemed really tough, but the rest was doable and fun!

An insanely hard set just as I expected.Math rounds over the years have always turned out to be difficult for me and this year was no exception.With Pranav and Rakesh authoring this year, I expected a touch challenge but this one was crazy hard and on a different level . It exceeded my difficulty expectations by a mile.

In the contest, I started with the highest pointer (Remainder 9*9) and stubbornly kept solving it until I finished.I saw the break-in very late and even after that ,the solve dragged on.I sticked to my approach of consistently solving the higher pointers no matter what without worrying about the time or the points gathered.I enjoyed the set very much but my only disappointment and complaint is that there was not enough reward for solving the higher pointers.I might as well have completed 17 sudokus(barring the 16 pointer) in 60-70 mins and still ended up on 84 instead of adopting the harder approach that I did.With the Remainder 9*9 difficulty have been 2 or 3 notches below, set would have much better personally.

A fantastic test otherwise with all sudokus highly logical and clean as a whistle.I intend to solve some again fully logically.Favourites are Product frame (10 points), X-sums (8 points).Rest were good as well.

Thanks a lot Rakesh and Pranav for a fantastic test !

A tough set but that's what a math episode ought to be. Enjoyed little killer-2 during the test and difference-2 post test. Thanks Pranav and Rakesh.

Well I am not that good at the Math variants. But with some pre-prep I did decent in this test. Couldn't attempt last 2 Sudokus, they were definitely very tough. Very nice set overall.
Thanks Rakesh and Pranav.

A great set of Math variants from Rakesh and Pranav. I really enjoyed solving them. Got stuck in the Difference-N sudoku for too long, which ruined my test.

Thanks for the fun contest!

Entering comments is optional. However, comments entered in this box will be saved only if you post in forum. It is perfectly valid if you choose to post anonymously. My aim in each round is to solve all classics, all 6x6 variants and at least one 9x9 variant. Will I ever get there ? Not much hope as even the 6x6 variants elude me !!

Nice sudokus, but too hard for SM. I think there was far too much of math.

Favourite sudokus: Difference 9x9, XSums 9x9, Difference 6x6

Thanks Pranav and Rakesh!

When I saw the IB, I could not understand even the questions, and rued the fact that I last studied Math 4 decades ago. But as I started to solve, I started understanding it, and solved the IB (except the remainder). During the contest,my printer got stuck, and I lost 10 minutes getting it to work. So I managed to solve only the classics and the Product. The classics were much easier than last time. Thanks for that. And I actually find the Math variants very interesting, and will enjoy solving them offline. Very interesting puzzles.

I personally loved the round with Math being my favourite variant. I got stuck in few high pointers and as a result could not solve more puzzles this time around. Thanks Rakesh and Pranav for the good set of puzzles.
