dopuzzle - 2014-07-01 11:09 AMif would be good if anyone here can give some detail about schedule of 7 hrs(10-5 pm) is there a break in between since 7 hr is a long interval of time.what's deadline of registration

Check this: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/sudoku.cms

It looks similar to previous years. Basically, the number of people registering would be much more than what can be accommodated in a single group. So there will be multiple preliminary rounds with different groups of people and a few people will be chosen from each of these rounds to proceed to the regional final round which will be held later in the day.

I tried TOISUDM Prasanna23 and got an immediate response. The only possible error I see is the number entered.

So you sms-ed and got the timing of 10 AM? Typically that makes you an early batch participant, and so yes, you will have an interval. I'd advise you mainly to make sure you give the right contact details in the first round sheet, so that if you do qualify, they'll be able to contact you easily to notify. Also, don't go too far away from the venue of course, so that you can reach back in time for the next round.

The second round is typically longer and then there's the time taken to check and decide the winners, all of this combined is what takes it to 5 and such. If I remember right, in Mumbai, last year we were called for the 2nd round at 2 PM.

All of this information is assuming it is the same format as last year. So don't take any of it as a given unless an organizer confirms it.

It was a good experience to participate in the contest.
Last year, in Round1: One had to solve 8 6*6 sudoku in 15 minutes.
In Round 2: there were 4 classic sudokus and 4 of variant types, 1 each of odd-even, trio, diagonal and alphabet sudoku. And time allotted for the second round was 1hr..but to get selected one had to solve all the sudokus in less than 40mins. Let's see if there will be a change in the format.
I am looking forward for the contest. Best wishes for all the participants. Just enjoy the competition, it will be a great experience.

Not exactly. It was the top 4 participants, regardless of time. In the Mumbai round, the 4th qualifier did not finish the set within the 60 minutes I think. It depends on difficulty. Going by the announcement, I suppose this year its top 3 participants and not top 4 who get selected.

Ohh..i was assuming on the basis of my last year experience.

I have read the terms and conditions at toi.in/sudoku, they have mentioned in terms and conditions that top3 will be selected in city rounds. But they also have mentioned in the rules that top4 will be selected.
I am confused.

Top 3 from each city qualify for national finals.
From the 12 finalists, top 4 will be selected.

Any Sudoku variant can be made easy/difficult and also it could depend on personal preferences. Assuming it is similar to last year, the Sudokus will have points assigned to them, which is an estimation of difficulty.

Practice Puzzles for Round 1 of Times Sudoku Championship (5th and 6th July at various cities)
http://swaroopg92.blogspot.com/2014/07/practice-puzzles-for-round-1...
Mostly Easy but 1 or 2 are medium difficulty. This is mainly to give you idea about 1st round and its based on previous years experience. Remember in actual contest sudokus might be difficult than whats here. :)
Good luck to all with 1 day to go. :)
