Difficulty and points allocation for this competition remains very volatile (and nowhere near this supposed 50/40/10 target!) - with the previous round in mind I was expecting to finish so didn't bother prioritising puzzles to solve. As it was I needed a few extra minutes past 90 to finish the skyscrapers, which is something I might have prioritised if I hadn't started off confident of finishing.

Also, for some meta feedback, the feedback form itself leaves a lot to be desired. For example, I can't initially see too much difference between "many" and "most" puzzles being worth too much or too little, so instead I've interpreted "many" as meaning "some". Either way, there were four puzzles with 11-13 points (Thermo, 2-5-8, Outside Sequences and Skyscrapers) and I definitely did not solve them in roughly the same time as the distribution might imply. Usual health warning amount my mileage varying from the testers duly noted, but you did ask for feedback!

Thanks to Ramesh and Rakesh! I found these more difficult than the first two sections, but enjoyed them nonetheless.

A very hard set.The hardest based on my solving experience were Skyscrapers (11) followed by Outside 2-5-8(13).Thermo (12) was not hard but very tricky and I kept breaking it and this alone consumed ~30-35 mins which in turn made me fall short of the set by 2 sudokus. I did really bad and feel terribly disappointed.I enjoyed the test but definitely it could have been better personally and hope to do better in the coming rounds.

Thanks for the hard and excellent sudokus Rakesh and Ramesh.My favourites of the set were 2-5-8 Outside (13) followed by CP (10).

It is mentioned in the Test page that the booklet is of size 8 pages,but the actual booklet is 9 pages.I had kept only few pages in the printer and as a result,the last page was missed out :/.
Please rectify this error as soon as possible.
thanks

I enjoyed the test a lot. I almost missed out on submitting the 9x9 Renban:), I will definitely try harder in the April round.
