I am playing this for the first time in Bangalore .
Could someone please provide the format of the test (how many rounds, duration , types of puzzles etc)?

Is there some place where the test puzzles are published ?

What is the best online reference to prepare for this competition ?
Thanks!


After the first round of 8 6x6 classics in 15 minutes, there is a 1 hour round with 4 classics and 4 variants. Therefore practice very well with 8 sudoko of 6x6. it is hard if u dont practice very well. once u are clear with it, then they will give a call in an hour and will let u know whether u are selected for the second round or not.

Whether or not that's possible (up to ToI I'd think), if you just want to compare your general speed against the qualifiers, there's many other ways to do that, as India's top players have participated in many tests in the past here on LMI where the results and sudokus are all archived

Congratulations to all the top 16..!
perform well in National Finals..!
do well in China..!

one request/Suggestion to organizers, If it's possible please also include Variants Sudoku in Prelims next time,

My point is ,say consider person A is aware of Variant Sudokus along with the classic ones , and can solve both of them pretty good...lets assume Person B is good at only classic Sudoku, and
knows how to solve them fast,,! but what if Person B gets through prelims and Person A does some minor mistake in a hurry and could not get through..!
Person B after getting through prelims, and can only solve Classic ones ???? and what about the adaptability to variants ?
in that case Person A has lost a Valuable chance .And i am not taking about any person in general..and just a thought..!no harsh feelings..!

I assume its because they were a little pre-occupied with organizing the further rounds. Now that all regional rounds are over, I think the results might be published in a few days.

Well, based on Mumbai, yes, specific instructions must have been given at some point to give your contact numbers so that you can be called up later in the day if you made it through to the next round. The answer sheets would've had a place to fill in your contact number.

Most of the people who had completed 8 in the first round, waited at the venue. They started announcing the names by 12:30. Don't know if they called up others. There was a bit of confusion. It is possible that a few people may have missed making it to the next round.
