What is the last date to register ?


Can I participate from more than one city ?


sanket.saxena - 2015-06-23 7:05 PM

Details are here

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




My 1st query is still unanswered.

It is not written there about the last date to register. Only the contest dates are written.

Hi Shaheer. The last three editions didnt have any last date for registration. They allowed registrations till the day before the event. If you register early, you will get an earlier slot. As days go, you will get a later slot in the day.

Last year:
Round 1 had 4 (not 8 right, someone confirm) easy Classic Sudokus, in something like 20 minutes, with the top 100-ish advancing to the next round. The next round had 4 Classics and 4 variants (Trio, Odd Even, Diagonal, Alphabet) to be done in either 30 or 40 minutes, where the top 3 were chosen for the National Finals.

Timings could be a bit off, but the general idea, and variants that appeared, is accurate.

Yes.It had 4 as a preliminary qualification to advance to the next round.

The next round had 4 Classics and 4 variants (Trio, Odd Even, Diagonal, Alphabet) to be done in either 30 or 40 minutes, where the top 3 were chosen for the National Finals.


The above mentioned 8 was to be done in 60 mins.

Its been expressed before (mainly from Hyderabad and Kolkata), but I assume Times of India looks at factors like their overall circulation and what not when deciding the cities, so I doubt it would change much if some solvers expressed interest. Its unfortunate, these cities definitely have talent, considering that the current Indian Champion lives in Hyderabad . But I guess the only solution is to travel to a nearby city and enjoy the experience.

A few quick questions:
1) The A-Team for the WSC will be the Top 4 from ISC? So if any of the TSC final 4 does not happen to be in the ISC Top-4, they would be in the B-team?
2) What happens if the top 'experienced solver' from a city is also from the 2014 contingent? Does someone else get invited to make up the 3 member group from the city for the final in Mumbai?
3) When is the Mumbai finals expected to be on?
4) "There are two rounds for selection of the top four candidates of each city.". Should that be "top three" instead?

Yes

2014 contingent (Rohan, Prasanna, Rishi and Sumit get a bye for the finals). At most one experienced solver apart from these 4 will get selected from each city.

3) When is the Mumbai finals expected to be on?


I believe it has been announced in the advertisements. The date is 2nd August.

4) "There are two rounds for selection of the top four candidates of each city.". Should that be "top three" instead?


Yes you are right. I will get this changed.

Couple of things to say about last year's paper and print quality.
1 - Previous Year the shaded cells in odd-even Sudoku is very dark and digit written by pencil is not visible easily its good if shaded cells are lighter like light blue color etc.

2- When I rubbed the whole grid the white lines(non-bold line) also get erased.


Couple of more questions :

1 - Is same Sudoku's will appear that appear last year.

2- Is there will be instruction provided on the same day i.e on the competition day or just a day before the competition.

"The twelve participants from the four regional rounds will compete with the four members of the Indian contingent from 2014. "
Can someone explain this point please.

Competition day.


"The twelve participants from the four regional rounds will compete with the four members of the Indian contingent from 2014. "

Total 16 players in the finals. 4 from last year (Rohan, Prasanna, Rishi, Sumit). And 3 from each of the four cities.

Hi. In general you will receive the confirmation message with venue and time slot instantly. Can you specify the city where you will be participating and the message format you sent.

There is no other choice other than to register again but your time slot for the prelims (may) be a bit delayed.
