There is a trick for puzzle no 16 that makes it solve very quickly. In fact, once you know the trick, it might be the easiest puzzle on the entire test. (rot13: guvax cnevgl)

Giving it 4 points had some weird psychological effect for me though. I looked at it, thought about using that trick, dismissed the idea because "it's the easiest puzzle in this section", and then gave up on doing it 10 minutes later. Finished the test, went back to it, solved almost immediately.

P.S. Really great puzzles for this one. Almost every puzzle was unique and memorable.

Very nice puzzles but too hard for PR, that made it less enjoyable.
I felt the points distribution was a bit off, but maybe it was just my preferences.

Favourite puzzles:
Slitherlink 3
Ripple Loop 2
Masyu 2

Thanks Ashish!

I have a suggestion. Can LMI implement a change in the answers input page for contests such that once the test is over, I can check if my answers for unsolved puzzles are correct or not without affecting my score? Currently I think waiting for solution booklet is the only option. Kindly respond.

Excellent set of puzzles. Had a smooth run in almost all genres until the first of Regional Yajilin puzzles.
The choice of puzzles for the contest was as impressive as the solve paths. I enjoyed the set very much. Would love to see Round trip and Country road puzzles make an appearance in future contests.
Thanks Ashish for a great contest !

Hi, I got some technical issues during the test and had to refresh my browser. Then I realized the timer was reset as well so I lost track of time. Is this intentional or some kind of bug?

Thanks
Matus

From what we have seen, the first seconds after a refresh resets the timer but then it comes back down to where its supposed to be. We have had reports of alternate behaviours though and are looking into it.
